A Human, Being

[sg_popup id=”1403″ event=”inherit”][/sg_popup]Anybody remember this post? Yeah, me neither. Apparently, I wrote it in mid-October of last year and then promptly forgot about it. Which is weird, right? I had what I felt was a real spiritual encounter, a full-on revelation from God. I’d assumed that such a mind-blowing declaration of sobering truth would be accompanied…

The Things That Come Between Us

[sg_popup id=”1403″ event=”inherit”][/sg_popup]Change is a funny thing. It’s hard to get used to, even when it’s beneficial.

[sg_popup id=”1403″ event=”inherit”][/sg_popup]DUDE. Welcome to Tuesday. Hope yours is going smashing-ly.

I thought motherhood would simply be part of my already…

Duct Tape + Glitter

Mother Nature always gets the last laugh. You’re better off learning to laugh along.

(I’m Done with) Adulting

We’re getting the floors of our house updated this week. I feel so adult when I say that. My husband and I are fairly good about saving up money to make home improvements when necessary, and as a closet HGTV junkie (haha, closet! Get it?), it feels great to spruce the place up a bit….
