I’m what you might call a horrible journaler. First of all, I never stick with it. I have stacks of half-finished journals around the house. And when I start a new journal, I freak out about the first page. Usually I skip to the second page to begin because what if I mess up on […]
Well, we made it to Missoula, and I just can’t get over the beauty that surrounds us. We are staying in a one-bedroom apartment on the bottom floor of a beautiful home in Frenchtown, a small town just outside of Missoula. The house sits at the top of a hill with 360-degree views of pure awesomeness […]
As excited as the kids are for our upcoming move trip to Montana, I can see the stress of change starting to creep in. (Must have something to do with the bags, boxes and piles around the house). So now is a good time for me to unplug, focus my attention on their tender hearts, and […]
Nine years ago today we lost our first baby. Every time June rolls around I feel like I should share that with you. But I haven’t because I don’t know how to talk about it in a blog post. If we were sitting across from each other enjoying a cup of coffee or a glass […]
After my post last week about our move to Montana (sorry local friends, our TRIP, not our move), a few people told me that I have an adventurous spirit. I do? Me, the one who tiptoes into the pool instead of jumping in? The one who hyperventilates at the thought of breaking any kind of […]
In ten days or so, our family of four will be packing up and heading to Montana for three months. Jeff is the pitching coach for the Missoula Osprey, and their season begins on June 16th. As a baseball family, this is considered normal. But as I started getting questions from those around us, I […]
The kids just finished up their school year, and I wanted to see how much they had grown. So I put them in the same outfit they wore on the first day of school and took a photo in the exact same spot. I didn’t plan it out this way, but our front door was […]
Dear Mom, thank you. Thank you for showing me what true love really looks like, and for not letting me settle for less. Thank you for teaching me what it means to be a family. Thank you for making all of my Halloween costumes over the years. You always made me exactly what I asked […]
I’ve been blogging for four years now. In that time, this blog has changed quite a bit. I’ve gone through seasons when I have so much to share that I’m tempted to post twice a day. And other seasons when I’m ready to close the computer and never look back. People ask me all the […]
When spring feels like summer and my brain feels lazy and all I want to do is shut this computer, sit on the back porch, read a book, and watch the kids play in the sprinkler…I think I’ll do just that. Have a great weekend. Psst…don’t forget to enter the JJ Heller giveaway!
