I love to laugh, sing, cook, bake, communicate, hike, exercise, travel and experience new things.
I’ve blogged since 2004 and reading through my posts reminds me of God’s faithfulness, the adventures I’ve had and the love, challenges and amazing people I’ve encountered. It’s a way for me to keep far-flung friends and family informed about my news, my thoughts and photos of the things we have done. And more importantly, it’s how I process thoughts….pounded out onto the keyboard, the words pouring out of my brain like water out of a faucet. Sometimes they come out drip, drip, dropping and other times the torrential outpour overwhelms even me. (I will warn you: my sentences get long!)
I aspire to many things ~ mostly becoming better at the Most Important Things: Chasing God passionately and purposefully. Being a wife and lover that respects and honors and cares for my husband. Motherhood that is marked by both fun and focus. Making our home a place that is welcoming, beautiful and pleasing. Always having a vision bigger than my life, but breaking it down into manageable, attainable steps.
I think I am both an idealist and a realist smashed together. I want more, but I know that TODAY is the gift. This blog might not have a specific focus, but I hope that somewhere along the way, it will encourage, bless and otherwise cause the readers of it to think about life, live a little more passionately and eat some amazing food.
