Summer, all at once.

Oh hey there.

(Blows dust off blog and awkwardly sits down...)

Blogging with 2 kids is kinda hard. Also, Summer's over, did you know? I think that just really hit me, and I have nothing to show for it except for a whole lotta iPhone photos. Basing things off of how white and covered-in-hair my legs are you would think we were still in the dead of winter. Not even close! I'm just going to keep on walking, unashamed, and post the pictures (not the ones of my hairy legs).

Brace yourself - Here's what our Summer looked like all rolled up into one post:

The end. 


It's lonely in here, with no sound except the echoing of my own voice inside my head. Telling me to keep going, to rise above, to let it go. Making deals with God and pleading to know why. Why has this played out in such a way that leads me to this busy and bustling, yet incredibly lonely, road. It's so loud I want to scream, and there is no one around to calm me down.

"It's just you and me again I guess," I say to God, "the way it ends every time." 

"Exactly the way it is meant to be," he whispers back. "Keep reading, take it a page at a time. This book gets so good." 

This is my family

It was about time we had an updated family photo to hang in my parents house. Something to finally replace this one:

please and thank you.

Shelby did an incredible job with the chaos we presented her with. She is so sweet and so talented and I was grateful for a chance to catch up with her. Can I spam you with a bunch of pictures that she took? Here's my family:

Warm feelings to all of that.
