Sitter Interview Day

This evening we’re interviewing a potential new sitter.

Our current one has been with us over a year now. I honestly am having a hard time with her leaving, and so is Bella. She’s been here for the entire pregnancy with Kaden, the loss of him, and helped us with the aftermath. She stepped in to give my parents a break when they watched Bella as we took care of Kaden in Dallas, and then again to care for our pets before we came home. She’s been our date night sitter, our on call sitter, and made sure she was handling Bella’s questions correctly after Kaden died. She’s crafty and creative and does the dishes for me -

She’s amazing.

It’s spring today. Some of you are seriously still buried in snow and I just can’t even. We’ve had spring since like – early January so today is name only.

Bella found the first dandelion of the season today. She was so excited, running up to tell me she’d picked a yellow flower. Hair in tangles. Remains of nail polish on her hands. A bit of breakfast on her face. Then she picked the petals off and gave it to me. ;)

All The Things

Let’s catch up, shall we?

Sometimes I feel stretched a bit thin. I write for other places and there is a little voice that says, “But I want this on my own blog.”

I have to remember that sharing my words and what God has given me to other places besides here is a blessing, a fulfillment, and a way for others to connect that might have a similar story. It’s also led to possibilities I would have never imagined.

Yet still, this little space is truly the freest place I can be.

Freeist? Freest?

Why do all those look wrong?

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset I’m sitting at Starbucks, and it’s chilly today. Not chilly like some of you with your -12* and all O_o but still. Chilly-ish.ย I’ve spilled coffee on my laptop and ordered a very messy croissant thing, so basically I look like a huge slob right now. [Read more...]

I wonder.


I wonder what these next few years hold for us.

Not worry.

Not much of that anymore. I seem to have had the anxiety about certain things taken right out of me after Kaden died.

I simply wonder.

Where will we move to? Or will we? Part of me wants a new adventure. Part of me wants to just stay here.
