For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the one with the big dreams! I’ve never doubted that they couldn’t come true either. I didn’t just dream of being a mom or having a career. I dreamed of having it all. That’s my big problem. I want it all, and I refuse to settle. I don’t refuse to sacrifice though, and that’s how I’ve … Continue reading On Being a Big Dreamer and Wanting it All
The most important thing I’ve learned during pregnancy: I’m not in control, and that’s okay. My body is taking over in ways I would not even know how to explain… meaning, it’s all good. My body was designed to know what to do even when I’m not really sure what’s happening.

He is good now, He was good … Continue reading The Wife is Becoming a Mother
I’m about to be real honest. These last few weeks have been really hard. A morning last week, I walked passed Ryan, and he asked “what’s wrong?” and all I could say was “my brain sucks today.” He didn’t know that the entire morning, every critical, harsh thing I’d ever heard had been running on repeat in my mind that morning. But I put a … Continue reading “I can breathe again”
If you have something to say, say it. God woke me up in the middle of the night with a word, and I feel it in my soul that it’s one that I’m supposed to share. When I first awoke, I kinda looked around and realized it was still completely dark outside, and I wondered if there was a sound or something that had woken … Continue reading If you have something to say, say it.

Ya’ll, at about 2:30pm today, the Hubs and I decided it was time to get out of the house and get some breakfast….lunch… ehhhh brunch. Yep, we were getting brunch.
