Journaling for your kids

Journaling for your kids.

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 […]

Thankfulness Lately

Lately I’ve been especially thankful for… Morning walks and the miracle of pollination. Cool days and snow on the mountaintops. Sleeping in and finding new birds to watch.

What I want you to know about having a miscarriage

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 […]

Choose Joy

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 […]
