From Instagram: Thank you to all of our veterans. We appreciate your service!  What a week for America, huh? Like most of the country world, we watched the election results roll in on Tuesday with a mixture of shock and disbelief. Even my husband, who is generally not transfixed by all things political, stayed up until…

How do you feel about memoirs? {Plus 6 memoirs I loved!}

The first memoir I read was Lucky Man: A Memoir by Michael J. Fox, and I still remember thinking how much I enjoyed reading a book that felt like a story being told by a friend. It was easy to read, relatable, and appealed to my nosy side. Earlier this year, I read this article about how…

From Instagram: This guy had what we think was a febrile seizure and so our pediatrician's office sent us to the ER. He is NOT happy about all the poking and prodding, but we're praying for solid answers! On Tuesday morning, Lucas woke up in the wee hours of the morning with a mild fever.…

From Instagram: Spotting the waterfalls. I love fall! The fresh, crisp air. The apples. The pumpkins. The leaves changing. All of it! This week we took a morning off school to head to one of our very favorite fall destinations: Blackwater Falls in Davis, West Virginia. Sean and I stumbled across it on our honeymoon, and when we…

The books I’m reading…ever so slowly

This year will go down in my personal history as the year I didn't meet any of my goals, and I think my reading goal (which I audaciously raised to 100 books this year—hahahaha!) has suffered the most. Although I love to read before bed, I end up falling asleep after a few pages, and with…

From Instagram: Oh my heart. I feel like we spend more time in the ER or with specialists than the average family, and I haven't figured out if it's because we're a larger-than-average family or just because we're accident prone! On Sunday night Jackson hurt his foot while playing on the trampoline with his sisters (the story is…

From Instagram: This cracks me up. He's sick and won't let me lay him down, but he also won't cuddle, sleep on my chest or let me lay down *with* him. He wants to lay on top of me *just so*.  Whew...summer colds are no joke, y'all! We had a virus a few weeks ago…

From Instagram:Getting things done while he's distracted by washi tape! Ha! If you saw this post early Saturday morning, you might have noticed that I completely forgot to write this intro. I was wondering why it was so easy to put together! I am a bit in denial that summer is almost over. How can it…
