Today I have a fun DIY project to share with you all: I painted our door! For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been excited to own a home, and I’ve always dreamed about what color I would paint my door. That’s sounds a little silly, but the door on a house is … More Painting Our Door
My Dearest Glory, Yesterday I nursed you for the last time. As I type these words tears are welling in my eyes. I’m so sad to end this journey that we’ve been on together. Daddy and I agree that you’re ready. It’s time, but that doesn’t make it any easier. I know you’re ready to … More Closing the Door on our Breastfeeding Journey
If you know my daughter you know she absolutely LOVES the “Baby Shark” song from Youtube. At the mere mention of sharks or babies she starts to clap her hands and say “Dadada.” Its so adorable and fun to see her enjoyment of such a silly song. And besides that it has been a helpful … More Baby Shark and Hymn Singing
So ever since October, I have had a new job (or a side hustle, really). My dream job is being a stay at home wife and mom, and I’m so blessed to be able to do that! My other job is the next best thing though! I work for VIPKID as an online ESL teacher … More New Job – VIPKID
We moved! The Lord graciously provided a job for Nate and now we live in Western Kentucky where Nate is a youth pastor. We’ve been here for a little over a month, and it already feels like home. It’s a beautiful area, but the warmth and love of our new church family makes this the … More We Moved!

Wow, how are we already in September?! Here are some of my favorite pictures (in a very random order) from June, July, and August. As I sit here and go back through them, I am just so very thankful for this little family of mine that God has blessed me with, and for all of … More Life Lately: June to August
A while back my favorite podcast (What Have You), inspired me to learn the art of making sourdough bread. The authors spoke about how they loved learning ancient art forms like weaving and sourdough bread making, and that struck a chord within me. When Nate and I were first married, I tried to make sourdough … More The Yeasty Beastie
A lot has transpired while I’ve been away from the blog! Our sweet baby girl is almost 5 months old, Nate graduated from seminary, and I’m slowly figuring out this mom thing day by day. Here are some of my favorite pictures from our life lately in no particular order: From now on … More Life Lately
It’s been too long, I know. Life has been crazy and it’s been tough to find time (or motivation) to write. I started this blog two years ago to document our family adventures and as a creative outlet. I hoped I could grow my writing skills while keeping a journal of sweet family memories.
