Birthday season: last but not least

The weather where I live is changing into our fall season, with a burst of vibrant colors decorating the trees before we head into seemingly endless winter. October marks the last of the birthdays in our household until February, where I would love to assume that four months of rest and prep time will yield... Continue Reading →

What do we (literally) stand for?

I don't normally post inflammatory things. In fact, I studiously avoid even the appearance of inflammatory-ness on social media (yes, I just made up a word but I'm an editor so it's okay). Why is this so? I work at a church. As someone whose job involves being in the public eye quite a bit... Continue Reading →

Shared life, happy life

When I said we had a streak of birthdays from July through October, I wasn't exaggerating. You can't shake a calendar around this place without a birthday falling out. And this month, just a few days ago, my hubby celebrated a milestone birthday . . . which, for some reason, my autocorrect changed to "millstone"... Continue Reading →

Millenials ruin everything. Everything.

MILLENIALS WRECK ENTIRE WORLD: NEWS AT 11 You know, that's something I'm growing tired of reading and hearing. All my children qualify as millenials, according to the "official" dating system for these types of things. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure none of them (or their friends) have ruined life as... Continue Reading →

#WATWB: When community is family

This is my first official post for the We Are the World Blogfest, and I thought I'd start it out right in my own backyard. Sometimes I forget that there are good things happening nearby. We don't always have to look at some far-off country, or even the opposite end of our own country, to... Continue Reading →

We Are the World Blogfest

Hey, everyone, I thought I'd give a quick heads-up today so you all might pop on by next Friday, August 25, to my blog. I'm participating in a blog hop called "We Are The World Blogfest" (tagged on social media as #WATWB). The idea of this blogfest is just as the picture above states: in... Continue Reading →

Our baby is 24

Our oldest child (who is certainly no longer a child by anyone's definition) turned twenty-four years old this past week, and I have no idea how that happened. Wasn't it just a handful of years ago that I was pregnant? There are times when it sure seems like it was yesterday. The oldest child in... Continue Reading →

It’s birthday season

In our household, July kicks off four months of birthdays. Our youngest was born in July, our oldest in August, my husband in September, and our middle son in October. They all get to rest up through the winter so they can prepare themselves for my birthday in February, but that's for another post. Today... Continue Reading →

You plant corn, you get corn

Over the last couple weeks, I've gotten to enjoy some much-needed down time with my family. My husband found himself with two weeks' layoff and I made up my mind to try to enjoy as much of it with him as possible. Because our work schedules are in opposition to each other, our time together... Continue Reading →
