(*day 29// write31days// click here to read the rest) This writing every day thing is coming to a close, and I have to tell you I think I’m done trying new things, for the month of October, that is. There was plenty on the list that I didn’t get a chance to do, like… *Make…Continue Reading

That Time I Went Mountain Biking With My Husband

(*day 28// write31days// catch up here) {This write31days thing is wrapping up, and all I can say is, yippee! I don’t even say that in normal life but it seems appropriate. I honestly can’t believe I’ve kept up with this writing thing But honestly, it’s actually fit itself into my life more easily than…Continue Reading

Reaching Out to the Dry Cleaning Lady

(*day 27// write31days// click here to catch up) I have this really bad habit of storing up a humungous hamper full of Luke’s dress shirts and pants to take to the dry cleaners. Truth be told, I only make it to the dry cleaners about once every 6 weeks, and that’s on the good side…Continue Reading

His Strength, Not Mine// Music and Church Planting

(*day 26// wrtie31days) It’s been almost two years since we joined a church planting team and started a new church. Never in my wildest dreams long ago would I have imagined that people can even do that, start a church.

Hanging Out With a Cow Named Molly (and a Sweet Friend)

(*day 22// write31days// deep cleansing breaths// click sidebar button for more) My long time friend Brenda invited Landis and me out to her farm today. Well, it’s not quite a farm, but to this city slicker it is… Pretty much for me, if you have a cow and some chicks and places to house those…Continue Reading

Eating Someone Else’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

(*day 21// write31days// are we there yet? ) We have new(ish) neighbors that I’ve been meaning to officially welcome to our street, but for many reasons (excuses, excuses), I just haven’t. And it’s actually been on my list of things to finally do this month, because, well, I very much dislike knocking on people’s doors.…Continue Reading

Fermented What? Kombucha….

(*day 20// write31days) I love my friends. Have I mentioned that lately??? So Caroline and I had this little texting conversation last week: Please notice that I said “Yes!!!!” before I even knew what I was saying yes to. That’s how this month is going, friends. But I instantly arranged things in order to make…Continue Reading
