Beauty in the Breaking

Beauty in the Breaking

Nathan is Best Man material. I say this because he has been in two weddings so far, and has been the Best Man in each.  He's also the Best Man for a wedding this upcoming June. So, Best Man x 3. He's not the type to have a thousand acquaintances; he has a few...

Stitching

Stitching

I have no problem in admitting that I struggle with contentment.  NONE. I feel like, why deny the facts? Contentment is a struggle for practically every person I know, so why not just come clean about it? This contentment struggle goes deep, into every area of my life...

33 Things

33 Things

Last year, I wrote this post on 32 things I was thankful for, and I've been thinking about it lately. I may have accidentally created a birthday tradition that is deeply meaningful to me, so why not carry it on? 2018 was... rough for us. There were some really low...

Eight Down

Nathan and I got married on a snowy day eight years ago... yesterday. It was crazy that it was snowing- we maybe get one snow day a year on the reg down here.  And that year, it just happened to be our day.  It was special, but like we weren't prepared AT ALL, and my...

Thankful Tree Craft Day

Thankful Tree Craft Day

There are few things that bring my soul joy like Craft Day.  For the past few years, my tribe and I have gathered for treats and fellowship in my living room, to create and laugh together.  IT'S THE BEST. We recently gathered to make Thankful Tree centerpieces, and I...

That Day

That Day

Geez.  Where do I even begin. Nobody talks about miscarriage. Like not REALLY. I mean you see the term “rainbow baby” all over facebook and from that you assume that the couple had an early miscarriage.  The details are vague.  And every experience is different, based...

Since That Day

Since That Day

There are like a million weeds in my front yard right now.  The dishes are piled high, my stove is a greasy mess, and there is dog hair all over the floor.  Emmy takes my hand, walks me to the couch, and carefully lines me up with it.  Then, with all her might, she...

School Anxiety + Mama/Daughter Necklaces

School Anxiety + Mama/Daughter Necklaces

When Ella went to kindergarten last year she really struggled with anxiety.  She was all over the place- both excited to be at a new school and so sad to leave me all day.  We were at Claire's one night and we stumbled upon the BFF necklace display.  She went CRAZY...
