So Many Things

It’s been such a long time since I’ve word dumped a big ol’ life update. So, here goes … Life is so full right now. So full and so beautiful. Jemma and Max are awesome – like, I really enjoy just being with them. Which, yes, means there have been seasons where I have not […]

Wow – this is quite the busy week on the blog! Coming up I’ve got some extra insight on completing your degree, a melt-in-yo-mouth recipe and a Jemma Says which is becoming a favorite of mine. I worked my buns off getting things ready for Christmas and I’ve finally been able to catch my breath […]

I Write At Night

Lately, bed time has been like clock work around here. Pajamas, teeth, stories, Bible, prayers, milk and then lights out. Max at 7pm and Jem by 7:30pm. It’s glorious.
