A Mini Family Get Away

Over the past weekend, we were blessed with an opportunity to go and spend some time with Ryan’s family up at Kishauwau Country Cabins. We began the drive north and Ryan’s mom contacted us to let us know that there was no cell reception where we were staying… And honestly – I was totally okay…

For me, our family got together down in Pana and watched their fireworks and spent the evening hanging out playing with sparklers and stuff. We still enjoyed celebrating the festivities as the…

How Do You Preserve Your Memories?

I’m sure I’m not the only one…but there are plenty of days that I’ll opt for the camera on my smart phone rather than pulling out my big fancy camera. When Marlee is doing something cute or I just want a quick pic, it’s the simplest tool for the job. But just because I’m not…

Thoughts for Mothers Day…

Mother’s Day… For seven years this holiday was painful for me. It brought up so much heartache and sadness and pain. You can read any number of posts I’ve written about how hard Mothers Day is for the woman who remains childless not by choice. (2017 before Marlee, 2016, 2015, 2014, & 2013) I’ll be…

Infertility & the Church

I realize that last week was National Infertility Awareness Week and that the week has come and gone. But I follow a number of support pages and blogs on this issue I’m so passionate about, and there was a theme I saw again and again as women from all over shared their truth and experience….
