Life these days: S/O to the hubs

Hey friends, I'm emerging from the shadows this evening after a month-long hiatus from blogging. I've had my laptop since my senior year of high school and my charger just finally decided to quit on me. Bummer! So, today my knock-off Apple charger arrived on my doorstep and I am STOKED about it. My last... Continue Reading →

Give yourself some grace

Hey, remember that one time I committed to writing two new blog posts each month and then the month of May happened? Yep. I could begin writing out a long list of excuses as to why I haven't been keeping up with my blog like I had originally intended, but the truth is, they're just... Continue Reading →

Embracing Eye Contact

I was recently out in public and I ran into someone I knew.  I knew this person well enough that they were able to recall a few specific things about my life and they struck up a conversation by asking me a question that required a thoughtful response. I was happy to engage in conversation... Continue Reading →

Momma’s Wisdom: Something Better

Quiet Before Courage

  Over Christmas, my sweet sister-in-law asked me if I had ever read Let's All Be Brave by Annie F. Downs. I had never heard of her, but knew that one of my goals for 2018 was to read more, so I was interested. After a quick scan of the back of her book, I was sold.... Continue Reading →

Embracing Average

One of the first times I can remember having to defend my 'average-ness' was in the seventh grade. At this point in school, teachers began splitting us up into 'regular' math and 'advanced' math classes. I had a few friends who were above average and a few friends who were average, like me. I remember... Continue Reading →

Encouragement: Speak It

Jesus, marriage, family, friends, community, words, dogs, good music, health & adventure. "The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling." - Fabienne Fredrickson I have recently taken an unintentional hiatus from my blog over the last few months. I say unintentional because there have been so many times I have... Continue Reading →
