5 years seems so big but so small

I have had this blog open for over a month now trying to think of what I want to say.  What is there to say?  It’s much easier to find the words for the things that go wrong in life.  It’s so much easier to get caught in the upsetting things in life.  We seem […]

Beautiful Mess: The me I used to be

Every one from a distance and up close has seen one of the transformations that I have done in the last two years.  That’s far from all that I have done.  I have chosen to open up and really figure it all out.  Who am I?  What do I want?  How am I going to […]

Isabel is 2!

Oh my sweet bebe, Isabel. I cannot believe that it has been 2 years already!  You really bring something amazing to this family with all of your adorable quirks.  It really does feel as though the time has flown. When you were born, we lived across the nation in the desert and now we live […]

Letters to you: 3 months old

Here’s my letters to you… Hannah, You’re 3 months old now.  I guess that makes you not a newborn anymore, huh?  I don’t want to think about that too much because I’ll sit here and have a moment.  Don’t grow so fast! You have started to smile more, belly giggle, coo and even wiggle yourself […]

Meet Little Miss Hannah

Meet Miss Hannah! She was born on September 23 at 2:58 pm. On Sunday, my water began to leak and by Monday morning I was in labor.  My husband and I headed to the hospital.  I was admitted by 11:40 am and everything else happened really fast.  By 3 pm, my husband was holding her […]

Nesting: Crocheted chevron blanket with flowers

I have never been a crochet person. I find knitting to be much easier, but I also do not like to feel defeated by something. When I was poking around on Pinterest, I found this pattern http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/rickrack-rainbow-baby-blanket and started asking my mom (the master crochet woman in my life) how difficult she thought it’d be. To […]
