In July, on a challenge from my friend Lisa, I dusted off my Instagram account. And it’s been true love ever since. I was a bit wobbly starting out, not quite sure how to pick and choose what to post. But I’ve since decided to pursue pictures that very much represent *real-life* to me… the […]

found – news and more news

foundprofile2

Please take a minute and read this one to the end, friends. One week ago, my sweet husband delivered 1300 Found shirts to my door. Since then I’ve done everything in my power to get these on their way. Stat. Honestly, there’s nothing like 24 t-shirt filled bins, lining your bedroom walls, to get you […]

It’s been too long since I’ve taken my biggest girl out for a photo shoot. Like almost a year, y’all. Thankfully, she’s not too old to bribe, and the offer of a free lunch was enough to get her to commit to being my muse for the afternoon. Of course I could have just asked […]

how do I love thee…

Noah4-2

Seriously, I love this dog. Okay, confession time. I love all my dogs like a crazy-dog-hoarder-person. Thankfully (I suppose?) I married someone who had only a mild affinity for dogs… comparatively speaking. Because it’s kept my wild love for dogs in check. But then came Noah. I know, I know. I wax poetic all the […]

found shirts – counting down

ready

After hitting a teeny tiny snag in production, the Found shirts will be ready for pick up this afternoon. My sweet husband is taking the day off work tomorrow so he can drive to A-town to pick them up, to avoid the shipping time and cost. I was planning to go, but my wise printer […]

Poppy = 5

Poppy5-20

One week ago Poppy turned five. (Is it just me or does it seem like I was posting about her last birthday just a month or two ago?) And it was, whether or not I was happy about her turning a whole year older, a lot of fun. Additionally – trying to look on the […]

beautiful.

Did y’all see? No Hands But Ours has been completely transformed. *cue angels singing* Because a whole-lotta hard work went into this overhaul. It’s been over a year in the making. Countless hours put in by a group of big-hearted adoptive mamas, as well as some incredibly generous web-design people that were able to envision, […]

a quarter of a century.

Tori25-2

Yes, her big day was over a month ago. But when you’re already a quarter of a century, a few weeks shouldn’t matter… amiright? We celebrated in our usual fashion. The birthday girl had her choice of dinner… and dessert. This is the dessert that happens when it’s the baker’s birthday and mama has to […]

because He loved us

ThankYous-2

Wow. Just wow. It’s been four days since our fundraiser ended and I’m still basically speechless. Over 700 people gave. Over $36,000 was raised. And over 1500 Found shirts will be printed and worn – God’s people carrying His Word on their back on behalf of one little girl, halfway around the world. Speechless. So […]

going all out.

Y’all ready? Because here we go… (Trying to summarize it all right here in one post. If it seems like a repeat, it’s not. Lots of good stuff – please read to the end.) We are in the process of bringing home a precious baby from China. Her name is Clementine, she has Down syndrome, […]
