Year of Jubilee

Posted on

They say the 7th year is the year of Jubilee.  A year where debts are cancelled and everyone knows and breathes freedom.  A season of celebration. It’s been 7 years since our son Noah passed away.  God has already shown Jason and me how this year is going to be profound and special, though we […]

The Tortoise and the Hare

Posted on

When I think of turtles, images from Eric Carle’s books come to mind since I have a toddler and these are on my shelves and in my hands most afternoons before nap time. If I said the word “turtle” to my husband, I bet you a zillion dollars visions of pecans covered in caramel covered […]

When Dreams Come True

Posted on

Jason and I took Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace University”class recently.  All I can say is literally every person should take this class at some point in their existence.  There would be no financial issues on this earth or in any government.  Just sayin’. That being said, one of our cash envelopes is set aside each […]

"Food Fight!!!!!"

Posted on

A couple weeks ago Jason was rude.  And I mean, weird rude.   To me it seemed totally irrational and out of nowhere, and in 20+ years of knowing him, I should know…because Jason’s not rude.  It’s not his nature or in his character to be rude.  He’s the most thoughtful man I know. I mean, […]

Your Peacock…Your Peacock!

Posted on

Let me see your peacock!I couldn’t resist. Unfortunately I’ve heard the song.  I have another post for another day regarding my affection for Katy Perry, but not today. Let’s just say, since I don’t really know what I’m doing before I go into a project like this, unfortunately I’m not able to write a DIY […]

A Brief History of Em’s Halloween Costumes

Posted on

Hindsight is 20/20. 2005, Em’s 3rd birthday party with recycled skirts made from daddy’s pant legs.  Flower hats made from recycled upholstery materials. Apparently I’ve always been a recycle-er.  I was “green” before “green” was even cool. With jewelry I love to take old pieces apart and repurpose them into something fun and modern, which […]

More On: Girlfriends!

Posted on

NOT “Moron Girlfriends!”  Just to clarify… There are many titles I could have gone with concerning this post: “Modern Day Miracle!” “Man Uncovers Ancient Secret!” “Husband Found His Wife’s Sweet Spot…” “Mars Finally Moves to Venus to Form a Planetary Merger” “Jesus Can Come On Back Now…All the Problems in the World are Solved.” Or, […]

Girlfriends are MANDATORY!

Posted on

I just got back from Austin, Texas, where I took part in a girls weekend.  Two friends from college, one from the East Coast, another from the West, dreamed it up and decided to invite their friends from around the country to meet in the middle.  Those friends invited friends, and so on, and so […]

Dave Ramsey is Dreamy

Posted on

I am so totally in love with you, Dave Ramsey, in a strictly platonic and financial sort of way… Today I did something I have not done in 19 years of marriage.  It may seem like no big deal to some, but for me, it was epic.  For reals. I went to the grocery store […]
