A few weeks ago, my husband surprised me with a weekend getaway for the two of us. AHHHH! It was wonderful. We hadn’t gone away together since before I was pregnant with Nathan. It was much needed and long overdo. I’m wondering how we can figure out another one asap! He planned all the details […]

Broken Together

This song makes me cry…….every time! If you’ve been around my blog for any length of time, I’m sure you can understand why. Have you heard it yet? Does it make you cry too?

Waiting….so much of our story revolved around waiting. Waiting for God to do a miracle in our marriage. Waiting for a change in my heart. Waiting for my husband to serve his time. Waiting til he could be home. Waiting for him to find someone willing to hire him. Waiting as we put the pieces of […]

Broken Things

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

There is a certain crime show I enjoy watching. The main character on the show had a tea cup that he loved. He loved it so much that if his co-workers saw someone else drinking out of it, they’d say something like, “ok you need to go wash that and get it back in the […]

A Man Lives Here

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

I often say to myself, “As many things as I pick up and always put right where they belong, you’d think my house would be spotless.” It doesn’t seem to matter that I deal with the mail daily…that I hang up the diaper bag every time we come in the house….that I keep laundry picked […]

Sometimes Valentine’s Day Is About The Moldy Drywall

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

I love Valentines day and I always have. I loved it when I was single and I loved it when James was little. I loved it when Lee and I were dating. I’ve never been one that thinks it has to be some huge deal but I enjoy it as a fun day to share […]

Fighting & Smiling

Monday, January 27th, 2014

On Christmas day, Lee and I had a “little misunderstanding”. Ok, it wasn’t little and it wasn’t a misunderstanding. It was a big old mess and I was selfish and unkind and really really angry. We weren’t screaming or anything but it was definitely a fight. In the middle of it, I was seething and […]

Lee was home this past weekend. Last night, he lit a fire in the backyard and we sat outside together for awhile–getting eaten by mosquitoes! He went inside earlier than James and I did. When we went in James was complaining about something. I came in to see what was going on and said, “What […]

Every Baby Is A Miracle

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

I know EVERY baby is a miracle but I think this baby is mighty special. I consider him a miracle for the obvious reasons that life and a baby’s formation are so miraculous in the first place. But then there’s the whole–his mother is an old woman! (ha!) And then my husband’s travel schedule and […]

Why I Keep Lee Around

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Well, for lots of reasons. You know I happen to love him and there’s this huge thing. However, I was thinking today one of the reasons I keep him is he’s so handy! He fixes all sorts of things and just seems to know how to do it right away. He fixed my clock too. […]
