Rewind: The Windy City

AKA…The North Pole. If you didn’t know, Chicago is a tad chilly in January. But the weather situation didn’t put a damper on our fun. It was so great to be able to sneak away to the big, frigid, windy city for a late anniversary getaway with my man. Sadly, this is the first time…

Christmas in Pictures

We made a very quick trip to Alabama for Christmas this year, but I wanted to document with just a few pictures. Santa loot… Coming in to check out the loot.┬áReady to cruise. Chuck the truck. Someone has changed a lot since last Christmas. Tears . . . New pajamas. Jenny looks like a model…

Colorado Vaca {Part 4: The Incline}

See that little brown line running up the mountain? It’s called “The Incline.” Jenny, Adam, and I decided to get up at 5:30 a.m. on our last day of vacation to go climb it. You’re thinking that we’re a bunch of crazies, aren’t you? I was thinking the same thing when, for one very long…

Colorado Vaca {Part 3: Jenny’s Graduation}

One reason for coming to CO was to attend Jenny’s graduation ceremony from New Life School of Worship. On Friday, the day before graduation, we were able to meet a lot of her friends/classmates at a family picnic. Saturday was graduation day. We had a sweet time of worship to kick off a really meaningful…

Colorado Vaca {Part 2: Garden of the Gods}

Garden of the Gods is a public park and gorgeous natural landmark in Colorado Springs. We’ve already visited twice. I’ll let the pictures tell the story because {as usual} there’s no shortage of them. {We miss Will so much!}{craziness}{beauty}Like I said, lots of pictures. Good times. Sweet memories. Thankful.

Colorado Vaca {part 1}

So, we’re in Colorado. The weather is not too hot and not too cool. The scenery is unreal. We’re out and about, breathing fresh air in wide open spaces. It’s pretty fabulous. I’ll admit, vacation is a tad less relaxing with a little one along. Honestly, though, he’s been such a trooper. We’ve dragged him…

Family Sunday

My family makes fun of me for my incessant picture taking. However, I’ve been in Alabama since Wednesday, and today is the first day that I’ve pulled out the camera and made some pictures. Not counting the pictures that I’ve taken with my phone, of course. I know. I’m┬áthat mom. {Mr. Boy is making his…

Spring Break

Adam and I are on “Spring Reading Days” {aka Spring Break} this week. You’re picturing us basking in the sun on some beach somewhere, right? Wrong. I wish. Adam’s being all diligent and knocking out another class, which I can’t complain about. He’s attending the Together for the Gospel conference here in Louisville which counts…

Just Checking in…

from Alabama! Luke and I were planning a mid-October visit anyway, but my Mom came to Lou to help out (an entire post should be devoted to the ways in which she has demonstrated sacrificial motherhood to her children), and we decided to ride back with her and stay an extra week. We are certainly…
