fresh.

I neglected my blog for awhile. (I know.. “Duh.”) I’ve had a great few months spending time with my little family and there are zero regrets! The last few weeks, however, I’ve missed blogging. I have a lot to share, …

where to begin?

I feel like I’m creeping back to this blog a different person, so I’m not 100% sure where I should start. These eight months…oh my goodness, I could have never been prepared. I have been buried in a pit of …

I keep thinking about this little blog lately and all the things I want to share and, quite frankly, I don’t know where to begin. This year has been such a roller coaster, and it’s only April. APRIL! We are …

        Mark and I finally made our way up to the state fair last night! We were both a little leary, as last year’s trip ended pretty badly. (Um, don’t eat the jalapeno cheese curds.) I’m happy …

the field and the fair.

  I taught Mark a few photography basics, so we played in my field for a bit a few weekends ago while he was in town. I mostly just picked flowers and played with the video feature on my camera. …

  Mom and I took Asher and Boston (the twins that she nannies for) to the fair on Friday morning to look at the animals. There was a bit of crying, and lot of Asher practicing his animal noises. And …

  One of my new year’s goals this year was to take more personal photos. I think this has been on my goal list for the last 3 years and I fail every year. For some reason I’ve had it …

where you rest your bones.

  I’ve been putting a lot of thought into moving lately. Maybe it’s the whole “having a boyfriend that lives an hour and a half away” thing. Or maybe I’m beginning to notice what a hermit I’ve become. I spend …

*happy dance*

  Yesterday.. Yesterday was a good day.   I spent a good two hours on my front porch reading, journaling, and finding ways to distract myself. Every time I’d hear a large truck coming down the road, my heart would …

    I’ve talked about the importance of journaling over and over again on here. I post some of my journal pages every Sunday, and I firmly believe there is no season in life when journaling isn’t effective. I realize …

  Story time!   So, Tuesday was my first little day off for the next couple of weeks. I woke up when I wanted, journaled on the porch, made some breakfast, took a bubble bath, and got ready. I had …

sweet nothing serenade.

  I’m having the hardest time trying to figure out how to describe this last month. It’s been equal amounts of exhausting and rewarding and exciting. I don’t really have a lot of pictures to share, but here are some …
