I’ve been thinking a lot, lately, doing some leaves-are-turning, temps-are-falling, daytime-is-shortening introspective thinking. The fresh start-ness of this time of year has me wanting to purge my whole life, getting rid of clothes and toys, decor and kitchen...

On the Season I’m In

Our seasons, they are changing, with the dredging out of the slow-cooker and sweaters and temperatures predicted to dip their toes into the 30’s next week. Autumn is barreling down on us, yet I – the girl who abhors heat and humidity and welcomes the...

On (in)courage’s 5th Birthday!

Five years ago, I sat in a dingy office staring at a computer screen. I was astonished to discover other women finding community in that box, and one of the sites I visited daily was (in)courage. Their writing was always a breath of fresh air and encouragement,...

As I enter my seventh year of blogging (seriously. I’m like a bloggy dinosaur), I realize that I’ve learned a lot about it. I’ve learned how to write for my audience. I’ve learned how to create a pinnable graphic. I’ve learned what [I think] makes a good blog post or...

On Goals and Why I Need to Set Some

While I was pregnant, I worried about transitioning to two children. I work from home, and while it’s a huge blessing (especially while nursing!) it’s also difficult. Even without kids in the house, I constantly see dishes and projects and to-do’s...

on where I’m sleeping tonight

I’m sitting on a couchbed tonight, grateful and overwhelmed and a little raw. I haven’t slept in what feels like days, my eyes sandpapery and dry, and my stomach in knots from eating junk food all day today. Today my little 2-month old baby girl had a...

on bearing my marks proudly
