And like that, it’s Quiet.

And like that, it’s Quiet.

The silence is almost eery around here, and when I poured my cup of coffee just now it had a lonely ring to it as it filled it’s way to the top. Even the washer has stopped and the only sound is the ticking of a clock in the other room. It’s weird. All three…Continue Reading

11/52 On Being Together

11/52 On Being Together

So here’s the thing: the only thing I pulled out my camera for this week was to take pictures of a recipe I was trying, so I wouldn’t forget how I did it. Thus, there just aren’t any portraits of each of my children to share this week. Honestly, it’s amazing to look at their individuality…Continue Reading

10/52 the 52 Project continues

Hey! So we are wrapping up our Spring Break week, and the weather, I must say, has definitely pulled through for us this year. It was warm and sunny most days and truly helped pull me out of that winter grog. Yesterday Luke did a bang up job getting our garden ready for the Spring,…Continue Reading

Okay. So I’m trying this again. I posted this yesterday, but then problems arose on my blog and alas, this post was swept into cyberspace.

Notes from the Weekend

Notes from the Weekend

We partied… On Friday night we had Julia’s birthday party at a trampoline park, like crazy people. I was actually slightly nervous about this party because it’s the only party I’ve ever hosted where parents actually have to sign their life away in order for their daughter to be admitted. And we all must be…Continue Reading

~A portrait of each of my children, every week in 2015~ Amaleah//  It’s been warm this week and so we’ve made our way outside almost everyday. It’s soccer season again so you are practicing and practicing, and making me kick the ball to you in my flats. You asked me one time, “Mom, who do…Continue Reading

Change is Hard

Change is Hard

Change is difficult for me. You might never guess it if you looked at all the different menus I plan and how irregular my schedule is and how (un)often I wash the sheets and how much variety I like in my day to day living. You may think that because we (Luke & I) are…Continue Reading

~A portrait of each of my children, every week in 2015~ Amaleah//  You are constantly learning new things, trying new things, attempting to accomplish new challenges.

Let’s Talk Lice

Let’s Talk Lice

Okay people. This happened. A mother’s worst nightmare. Well, maybe there are worse things, but you’d be hard pressed to find them. But for your information, I waited months to post about this so no one would decide not to hang out with me for months so as not catch the bug. Literally. Not that…Continue Reading
