The blessings of being a one car family

The blessings of being a one car family

My husband and I have been married for going on four years, and we’ve been a one car family from the beginning. There are some drawbacks to sharing a vehicle, but just in the past few months I’ve been thinking a lot about the benefits. While this style of living doesn’t work for a lot […]

Of mountains and curtains

Of mountains and curtains

Sometimes you have to live life on the edge. For some people, that means climbing a mountain, taking a spur of the moment trip, or putting their life savings into starting a business.

I missed getting this post up last month, and our little guy is ten months old now, but I’m going to post his 9 month photos to keep with tradition anyway. At nine months, Ethan weighed 20.5 lbs! Such a big boy! His fine blond hair is getting so long and he is still as […]

I haven’t experienced a miscarriage, though I remember the fear and anxiety that started to creep in […]

Our little man turned five months old today! It’s crazy and amazing and fun to see how much little ones change and develop in such a short amount of time. At five months, E brings a lot of joy, poop, and sanctification to my day. I don’t know what I’d do without him! Even in […]

Four months, an update, and habits in our home

So, baby is four months old. Don’t ask me how that happened! The time has gone both slow and fast. People always say it goes so quickly, to soak up the moments, not to miss this fleeting time. Did I capture all those newborn photos before the moment passed and he got too big, or […]
