{one foot in front of the other}

"I lift my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth." Psalm 121:1-2 I woke up this morning to the sound of the birds chirping on my alarm clock. I bought physical alarm clock a couple of years ago in attempts... Continue Reading →

{waves and wind}

I lay there in the stillness of the night, exhaustion crashing over my body intensely like waves on the shoreline during a storm. Years ago, my husband and I lived on the central coast of California, one my favorite places we have ever lived. Being across the street from the ocean was the greatest gift.... Continue Reading →

How in the world do you keep your schedule straight when you have this therapy and that appointment, three kids running here and there, and everything to do in-between?  I am a huge believer in scheduling. I typically function better in seasons of busyness when I can have things mapped out. I need a planner... Continue Reading →

{happy 1 year}

I cannot even believe it, my friends! I have made it to a year of blogging! This is a reason to celebrate! Never in my wildest imagination would I ever have predicted all the amazing things that have come from writing down my experiences as a mom. First, there is all of you! My faithful...

{summer style}

I don't know about you, but I love outfitting for the summer! Bright colors, shorts, tanks, and my favorite pair of Birkenstocks. I don't thrive in the heat but I have found with layering with just the right items, I can be cute and comfortable. Laying where I live is key to enjoying the summer.... Continue Reading →
