on sharing our stories in real life

Over six years ago, I started writing online. For a long time, it was simple recipes, newlywed tales, and my reader was my mom (she’s still one of my most faithful – hi mom!!) Then we moved to another state and were living on the prairie, far from people...

on Chicken, Wild Rice & Mushroom soup

While some of you are seeing shoots of green come up through the dirt, buds on trees, and are playing outside in shorts… here in Minnesota we got yet another winter storm last night. 4-6″ of snow coming down. I’m tempted to groan along with the rest...

on 30 weeks: a #girlwithbaby update

Oh my. Single digit weeks, people. SINGLE DIGIT weeks until we meet this baby. Because it’s actually nearing 31 weeks now. Oh my. This week, after our 30 week doctor appointment, we stopped at Babies ‘r’ Us. I’ve been having some intense pubic...

on puppies and being loved intensely

The day my son was born, just over two years ago, his brand-new daddy made a run to the hospital gift shop. He returned with a small yellow puppy stuffed animal that looked very much like our beloved golden retriever at home. That little puppy was placed in the...

on my #OneWord365 for 2014

Last year, 2013, was the first time I chose one word to focus on, in place of a list of resolutions and goals. A word settled into my heart, and not a day went by when it didn’t float to the surface of my brain. And instead of guilt over goals un-fulfilled,...
