  • 33 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

    Next month is baby month! That can’t be right, can it? Seven weeks left. The countdown is on. I’ve been a lot more tired and achy this week than in previous weeks, but I think that is due to the fact that we just moved! This past week has been packed (pun intended) with boxing up all our belongings, scrubbing… [Continue Reading]

  • 32 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

    32 weeks down. 8-10 to go! It is CRAZY to me that we are mere days away from July, and I’ll be able to say that next month is baby month!

  • My Pre-Baby To Do List with Baby #2

    Exactly two years ago this week, I posted my pre-baby to do list with baby #1! Since baby #1 and baby #2’s due dates are only six days apart, it has been fun (and a bit surreal) to compare both pregnancies every step of the way. This post may contain affiliate links. When I first found out I was pregnant,… [Continue Reading]

  • We’re Moving into a 750 Sq Ft House And I Couldn’t Be Happier

    We started searching for a two-bedroom apartment, duplex or house back in February. The rental market is insane in our tiny college town: there are two dozen people competing for every rental at any given time. The local Facebook group that lists all the current rentals is filled with dozens of anxious posts from people looking to move, with no… [Continue Reading]

Words on Becoming Affianced

We hiked up a trail covered in white stones, and past a churning creek. It was a cool day, and I was keeping my eyes peeled for a moose. Warrior Man was distracted. At the top of the trail in a shady hollow, sitting on some monster rocks, beside the raging rapids he said some true, and sweet words–and beside…

Recently, I was talking with a homeschooling mom who was confessing her anxiety when it came to her eldest daughter’s senior year. She was asking me about ACT tests, college interviews, and the like.

Fresh Towels

This summer after  finishing a job I loathed, and gambling for joy by pursuing other part-time jobs that I would love, I have found myself working a smattering of odd, and whimsical jobs that have filled me with peace, and taught me quite a bit. One of the jobs that I have been working, has been cleaning rooms for a…

The Courage to Finish

Lisa-Jo Baker began this week’s  Five Minute Friday with the words: “We tend to think that starting is the hardest part of the story. I think it’s finishing”, and I agree wholeheartedly. This is something I have been mulling over a lot lately. How difficult it is to move on from a stage of your life that you have grown…

Rest Awhile

It is a warm, and sleepy kind of evening. The thick overhang of clouds has dissipated leaving a simple, hazy summer night. My hair is hanging in wet clumps from my shower, and errant strands drop glistening bits of water next to my old laptop as my fingertips clatter away anxiously across the keyboard. The air conditioner is humming away…

For Your Worried Heart

It was a Saturday night, and I had a babysitting job. I parked my car, and walked up the overgrown path towards the yellow ranch house. Taking a deep breath, I knocked on the door.  I stood there, that evening, my hands aching from tiredness, and my heart greatly overwrought. After a long work week, and making the decision to…

Modern-Day Superheroes: Dads

I love superhero movies. Warrior Man and I went and saw the new X-Men movie last week. And as we sat in the crowded theater, munching away at our popcorn, and sipping ice cold pink lemonade, I found myself getting sucked into the action, the daring exploits, and the moral lessons that were all encompassed within the film. Spiderman, Superman,…
