Our Heart’s Desire


Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires. (Psalm 37:4 NLT) A month ago Wednesday, we welcomed our beautiful daughter, Naomi Elisabeth into this world and our family.  We’ve prayed for each of our children and she was most definitely the answer to many prayers.  We needed some more estrogen […]

At the speed of life


Often it feels like life happens at the speed of light.  There are moments of waiting, followed by moments of blur.   The blur, being the seasons of life where time goes so fast it’s difficult to stay in the present and take it all in. Today’s a sick day for us.  D stayed home from […]

Love IS Life. Everything else is just… garbage.


It’s so easy to miss the point.  It’s easy to get caught up in everything that doesn’t matter, even when I think I’m focusing on the truth.  Even when I think I’m focusing on God. Love. That’s it.  That’s all that really matters, right?  That’s all God really wants from us.  It’s such a simple […]

The Relativity of Feelings and My Struggles


Time.  It’s a tricky thing. It doesn’t make sense that five years ago feels like yesterday and, yet, I don’t know where the last month went.  We all know time is relative to each person’s individual experience; a hard month can feel like a year and a good year can feel like a month.  Perspective […]

Parenting Young Children: The Challenge of a Quiet Moment


  Oh how many times I’ve gotten on here and thought, I need to blog more often.  I’m not really sure what keeps me away.  It’s so soothing to write and so refreshing to get feedback and know that I’m not alone. Oh wait, my kids.  That’s why I don’t get on here more! No, […]

Gender Reveal: Baby Number 3


Unquestionably, today I felt more anxious and excited than I have in a long time.  I texted my sister earlier and likened it to Christmas morning as a child. This morning, after dropping Dylan off at preschool, the three of us headed over to Firstview Ultrasound in Greenwood Village, where my mom met us, to […]

Almost a Wordless Wednesday: News!


Wow, it’s been a month since my last post!  I’m not sure how that happened… Ok, well maybe I am. In short: life’s been almost unmanageably crazy around here.  I’ve never been great at following schedules or organizing my days.  I’m more of a have-a-list-at-the-back-of-my-head-and-see-how-the-day-goes kind of woman.  I find my lists and plans almost […]

Hi, I’m still here.

So… hi!  Long time no see, right? I don’t know what’s been up with me.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  It’s more like, I don’t really know how to explain what’s going in my head lately.  What I think is happening is: I never really took the time to let our move and all the […]

Hearts Unleashed 2014: Week 11 {#catchthemoment365}


I’ll admit, I had a really good time with my images this week.  It helps that I had new equipment to play with. I mentioned last week that I upgraded to full-frame.  If you don’t know what that means, you’re not alone.  I didn’t for for a long time.  Without getting into too much detail […]

Hearts Unleashed 2014: Week 10 {#CatchTheMoment365}


This last week was less than inspirational for me.  I just wrote a whole post about it, added my photos, saved the post… aaand everything was gone.  I don’t have the time or energy to rewrite the whole thing and, frankly, I’m not in the right state of mind as my toddler just woke up from […]
