Family Day Cover

The husband has the day off (it’s Family Day here in Canada…cool holiday, huh?) so we decided to record a bit. A lovely lady sent me this song last week and said it reminded her of Ry and I.  I think it’s so sweet.  Thank you, JJ Heller for writing such a adorable song! Enjoy! Read more →

The Beauty of Being Known

I love new beginnings. I think my heart jumped a little when I woke up and knew it was January first. A brand new month in a brand new year. Since I am an avid journaler,  I often write down what I’m thinking for the coming year and now that I have a husband to do life with, there have… Read more →

On feeling far from God

Have you ever felt far from God? I certainly have. In fact, I kinda do right now. Isn’t it sort of freeing to admit? Some would have a cliche response like: “Well…if you feel far away from God, He’s not the one that moved, you are.” Or maybe ask that question…”What have you done to feel far away?” (Yeah, like any of that… Read more →

Be kind to yourself

I will spare my lovely readers from any details but I had a turn for the worse this past week and was really.really.really. not feeling well.  The kind of not feeling well where you can’t even read (and folks, I always have a book going) to pass the time because you can’t concentrate. You don’t expect 8 months into marriage that your husband would be… Read more →

My Crutch

Yesterday marked three weeks since I last posted. The day of my last post on September 10th, I had an idea for a possible post the next week.  When I have ideas of things to write, I find any scrap piece of paper I can get my hands on and scribble it down.  I used to not jot things down, thinking… Read more →

“Let peace be the umpire”

If you’re anything like me, decisions and choices and needing to figure out what the heck am I going to do with my life has caused A LOT OF STRESS.  I say that in the past tense because I think…a little bit more…something is starting to sink in.  Maybe it’s moving away or experiencing lots of new things recently or getting married… Read more →

Room 223 to the Dance Floor

If I am honest with myself…I have to admit that I don’t follow through with what I feel I’m supposed to do a lot of the time.  This reality is kind of painful, really.  I have good intentions but they stay just that sometimes…good intentions.  I get a thought and I think it through, rationalize the daylights out of it and end up… Read more →

Sister, Sister

Family. That word can cause lots of joy to bubble up in us with warm memories and a feeling of deep connectedness and a knowing that you’ve got this group of people that “have you” no matter what.  That’s great and all but I’m not naive enough to think this is the reaction for everyone, though.  Sometimes, the word can remind us of times of pain where… Read more →

Something I’d like to punch in the face.

it slithers in when I’m about to step out and do something new it inches it’s way, often slowly and quietly, into my mind when I start jotting down my goals and dreams it sometimes sneaks in during conversations, making me question myself it even creeps into the closest relationship I have – with my husband it makes it’s presence known… Read more →
