Though we know it was in the year 2000, neither Brian nor I remember the first time we met. I so wish I could remember…and often wonder if we will get to replay that meet cute in Heaven one day. But although I don’t remember meeting him, I have always remembered him as being my friend.… Continue reading Love at First Cross-Stitch

New Mercies Monday
This week, I was blessed with double “Jillian” new mercies! My sweet friend Jillian from Tacoma was in town and I was SO blessed to get to grab a quick breakfast with her. Such a treasured friend. We met because she was my student teacher, which seems like EONS ago!!! But I knew we would… Continue reading New Mercies Monday
So Very Blessed Indeed
I couldn’t let 2013 slip away silently, without writing a little something to REMEMBER who we are as we finish out this past year and begin a new one. If I had written a Christmas letter, this is what it would have said. 🙂 There’s not a day that goes by that Brian and I… Continue reading So Very Blessed Indeed
Valentine’s Day, Part II
“For God so loved the world, that he gave…” It’s impossible to separate my sacrificial love for my children from my husband’s sacrificial love for me. The two are inseparable, because although I know it would be possible to pour out my life for my children without him, I am also certain that it would… Continue reading Valentine’s Day, Part II
Today is one of those days, where I wake up and am flooded with gratitude from the moment my day begins. Not because life is easy right now. Not because we have everything figured out. Not because I slept well. Not because I’m comfortable. But because God is good. So, so good. I am overwhelmed… Continue reading So grateful.
3 years of wedded bliss!
Brian and I celebrated 3 years of wedded bliss on August 8. Honestly, I can’t believe we’ve only been married 3 years…I feel like I’ve been married to this man for a lifetime. I can hardly remember when he wasn’t my best friend, wasn’t my husband, wasn’t Elliott’s dad… Really? Just 3 years?? What joy… Continue reading 3 years of wedded bliss!
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12 I grew up with dreams. And I am convinced, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that my dreams are from God. That He, the Author and Perfecter of my faith, planted these dreams in my heart long… Continue reading Dreams
2 Years of BLISS
Sometimes I just still can’t believe that he picked ME…. Brian and I celebrated two years of wedded bliss on August 8th. It was the perfect day. We spent a quick hour or so at Point Defiance Park during Elliott’s quick awake time. We’re excited for him to be able to stay awake longer stretches… Continue reading 2 Years of BLISS
Palm Springs Glory
Brian had the best idea to get away for a few days… The details came together so seamlessly, that we were convinced God was behind this. We got an INCREDIBLE deal on a beautiful 2 bedroom condo for 7 days, and Brian suggested that this might be the perfect week to get away, celebrate a… Continue reading Palm Springs Glory
