I joke about not being domesticated. In a traditional sense, I am not. In any way. BUT, I do have seasons where I fall in love with baking. This is one of them. So this morning Josiah asked for biscuits and who am I to say no to an amazing idea like that?!
I don’t think anything can prepare you for motherhood. You just have to dive right in. You figure out how you mother when you meet your child. And each child changes something in you. Every day when I look in their eyes, they require me to live in a greater way. Extending grace, patience, or mercyContinue reading “thoughts on motherhood”
Watching their deep love for each other is one of the greatest gifts that I’ve been given. We always say that they are best friends, and they are. They never like to be away from the other for two long. And spend sweet moments like this together each day. Most days I just sit inContinue reading “two little birds inside my window”
I had my camera out to work on a project today. And just couldn’t help but take pictures of this sweet girl. So here are a few, just because I love her cute little face. I hope her smiles brighten your day!
My wife and I handle the cold very differently. I’d shudder – in a literal sense – to think what would happen if we lived any farther north, and I’m sure she sweats when thinking of moving any farther south. When it drops below 65 degrees, that’s when I put on a light jacket. SheContinue reading “Polar Opposites”
As crazy as it sounds, Mike and I have never been to the fair together. The NC State Fair is one of his favorite events but with both of our schedules getting busy this time of year, we just hadn’t made it out. I’ve always been indifferent to the fair’s arrival. I’m not big intoContinue reading “a state affair”
We have known for some time that we were in the midst of a transitional season. There have been so many aspects of our lives that have been open ended questions and we have taken our time in trying to find the answers. We remember preparing for Arabella’s arrival and knowing that God was birthingContinue reading “a place to call home”
Mike put the Apple Festival on our calendar months ago. It is an event that my family has gone to for years. Ever since Mike and I have been married we have joined in. I basically love any excuse to get up to the mountains. We tend to find ourselves on the eastern coast ofContinue reading “a festival in the mountains”
Since highschool my birthday has been synonymous with these two ladies’. September has always been a whole month of celebration. Today we gathered around a table to mark Mel’s 28th. So I thought it would be the perfect time to say a few words about these two.
Every wedding is beautiful. Celebrating of the union of two individuals is always a remarkable event. The wedding we witnessed today was just a notch above the norm. The wedding was in the Rose Garden in Raleigh. I’ve spent plenty of time there years ago when I performed at RLT. Never really thought much about it. But take theContinue reading “A Wedding in a Rose Garden”
