Since arriving in Arizona last week, we have quickly settled into a routine of homeschooling, pool time, enjoying the outdoors, and most importantly, reconnecting with friends. And while I have all kinds of ideas swirling around in my brain about the future of this blog, I’m realizing it’s going to take a lot of behind-the-scenes work to get there. So I’m going to say goodbye for now. Not forever, but…

The Life of a Professional Baseball Family - Frequently Asked Questions

For those who have been asking, I am feeling much better than I did a few days ago. That was a scary episode that I hope to never experience again. And it’s a good thing that I’m feeling better because early tomorrow morning we leave for spring training. Which means today I have to pack up everything we will need for the next six months. With a new baseball season…

What Celiac Disease Looks Like

Celiac disease looks like something different for everyone. For many, a run-in with gluten ends with an uncomfortable trip to the bathroom. For others, fatigue follows them around for days, making it hard to work. The thing is, there are over 300 symptoms of celiac disease, and it hits us all differently.

Obviously it’s February and I’m in Texas, far from fresh corn season, but dang it, I was determined to eat some charred corn…

I will choose to honor the life I have been given

Forget New Year’s Resolutions. Scrap that long list of goals you won’t remember three weeks from now anyway! Choose just one word. One word you can focus on every day, all year long… One word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live. It will take intentionality and commitment, but if you let it, your one word will shape not only your year, but…

Thai Chicken Soup Recipe - 3 Ways! Cook this in a slow-cooker, pressure-cooker or on the stove. Gluten-free and delicious!

Let me tell you more about how much I love my electric pressure cooker. Yesterday I went shopping with my mom for important things like tissue poofs and $5 French wines from Trader Joe’s. By the time I got home, it was getting dark and my family was growing impatient for dinner. I had seen a promising Thai Chicken Soup recipe on Pinterest, but it was supposed to cook in…

3 Things I'm Loving Now

This past weekend, we drove to San Antonio to hang out with my cousin and his family. On our way there, we stopped in Waco to check out the Silos. You Fixer Upper fans know what I’m talking about. It was a little bit crowded, but definitely worth the stop, especially since I am now the proud owner of a #shiplap t-shirt. While in Waco, we stopped for some Torchy’s…
