Choose

Joshua 24:15 – “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. But as for me and my house we will serve the Lord” Why do we always seem to forget the first part of this verse? I always see home decor with “as for me and my house we will serve the Lord” but […]

The Lost Sea Adventure

Adventures look a little different when you have an 8 month old versus when it’s just you and your husband against the world. There’s a sense of fear that lingers. Before, it didn’t matter if you got lost, ran out of gas, got stranded etc. Before, deterrents were fun. Now ? I feel like I […]

Motherhood is Weird

I have this tiny human I am responsible for, but I’m still me. I thought being a mom would make me feel old, or at least like an adult. It doesn’t. I’m still my ever direction changing self. I still want to live on the road, but instead of living in a van, I want […]

What you Should/Could be Doing Instead of Watching Netflix.

Recently, I have fallen in love with (and finished watching) a show called “Greys Anatomy”. If you haven’t seen it, turn off your mobile device and NOW and turn on Netflix. There is no greater joy in life than watching Greys Anatomy. After that series, you will become so bored with life and fall into […]

Lunch time Learnings

It’s like losing weight. You work really hard to achieve your goals. You don’t eat icecream every night before bed. You order a side or fruit instead of French fries. You run when you’d rather not, because let’s be honest: even people who love to run equally hate it. Finding yourself is a lot like […]
