The Storyteller

In the darkness, the void, your imagination takes its first breath. It opens up those uncommon spaces. The simplest forms of expression evoke your deep, passionate response. In that darkness, your imagination runs wild. It is the outpouring of your soul. You beckon others to join you using your voice, your movement, your ideas. “Come…listen…experience…"...

Community. I Dare You.

I was up front in letting you guys know that I was processing my trip to Israel a little slower than I had anticipated. There was something deeper happening than just a rad trip with amazing people to a place that most only dream of seeing in person. And that something deeper is starting to...

Israel : Part 1

I recently went on a trip to Israel, and I began writing this post early in the morning after we arrived. My intentions were to actually blog the entire trip, but quite honestly it didn't take long for my thoughts to be completely consumed by the enchanted land that I was in. Also, the internet got a...

Letters to Jude : Happy 3rd Birthday!

I have been dragging my feet while trying to write this. Dragging my feet because it doesn’t seem possible that 3 years have already come and gone. Dragging my feet because a part of me is sad to know you’re older. Dragging my feet because I want these words to filled with hope and excitement […]

The Healthiest Version of Myself

It’s not often that I sit down with my computer in my favorite local coffee shop or at my office desk and not write about my kids. My kids are pretty much the center of my world, and because days with them leave behind volumes of stories, I talk mostly about them. Not today though. My sweet […]

Because Parenthood Is Hard

Some nights I sit down at my computer and the words just roll straight from my brain to the screen in front of me. Other nights I sit and stare at the screen, knowing that I want to say something…I need to say something…and I find excuse after excuse not to write it down and set […]

Everly Turns 1!

Phew! The weather was warm and sticky (it wanted so badly to rain) on Saturday, Everly’s birthday, but that didn’t stop us from having a house full of friends and family from all over to celebrate. We had my family in from Minnesota, my husband’s family up from Dayton, TN, and our friends from all […]

A Letter To My 1 Year Old Daughter

I feel as though I am writing this letter far too quickly. 364 days have passed since I anxiously woke before the sun came up to head to the hospital with your daddy. 364 days have passed since you were yanked into this world and laid on my chest. 364 days have passed since I […]

A Farm, A Family, And Fun!

Can I just start this post off with the statement that I have some ridiculously talented (and amazing all-around) friends? From photographers to musicians to yoga instructors, each one is pursuing passion and creativity to it’s fullest. One of my favorite people to showcase here in this blog is my good friend, Jess Gann, of […]

Feature :: Little Rascals Shop

I will be the first to admit that I had no idea just how many amazing small businesses there are out there the specialize in kids clothes, accessories, and toys. As I browse through my Instagram feed, I am floored at the attention to detail, ingenuity, and creativity that abounds in some of these shops. […]

Getting Ready To Hustle

Okay here’s the deal… I know that I have been pretty absent from this blog as of late. To say that I have been busy is an understatement. I have been juggling my jobs as wife and mommy to two busy kiddos right alongside running multiple businesses. Yes. Multiple businesses.  So I am getting ready […]

A Baby Shower Story

Y’all. I’m about to be an aunt for the first time, and I can hardly contain myself. {{Insert small break where I freak out from excitement}} About 25ish weeks ago, my sweet sister-in-law, Heylee, made the announcement that she was pregnant for the first time. I’m pretty sure that I jumped up and down and […]

Resolutions And Fearing Failure

At the end of each year, I am reluctant to write down any New Year’s Resolutions partly because I try not to think about all the things I should be doing, and also because writing down a list of potential failures just doesn’t sound like a fun time. Feel me on this? I read a stat […]

2015 :: A Year In Review

As 2015 comes to a close, I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on this past year (and probably a few of the years before it). I keep trying to come up with any family/job/fun updates I’ve written in the last few years, and I’m having a little trouble coming up with anything […]

The Door of Vulnerability

I am not a fan of vulnerability. In fact, I avoid it all costs. I dislike the feeling of feeling of being in a skimpy swim suit on a beach filled with Victoria’s Secret models. I dislike the feeling of people being able to see those dark places in my soul. I dislike the feeling […]

Letter to My Son :: Turning 2!

I will say it over and over and over probably until the day I die: how has time gone by so quickly? Today, you are turning 2. 2.  I keep repeating the number over and over in my head…sometimes I even say it out loud…but it doesn’t seem real. Even though I am to the point […]

Saying Goodbye To Tucker

Sitting in my blogging queue is a note to write about Tucker, my dog. I put it in there back when I started this blog and was thinking of things I wanted to write about. But I never wrote that piece. Now is the time. On August 23, 2015, I rushed my 11-year-old chihuahua, Tucker, […]

Either All Lives Matter, Or None Of Them Do

I’m pretty sure that I’ve sat down at my computer to write this post what feels like a thousand times. Each time I find myself abandoning it halfway through out of sheer, overwhelming heartache, or because there is so much heat in my words, I can’t possibly put them to print. But I believe in […]

The First 30 Days

On May 28th at 5:15pm, we heard the sharp cries of our daughter as she entered this world. With tears streaming down my face, I saw her tiny red body (she was mad y’all!) as the doctor held her up for us to see. I tried to quickly count her fingers and toes, and wanted […]

A Letter to My Newborn Daughter

I had no idea.  I had no idea before you were born that I would have space in my heart to love you as much as I love your brother. I had no idea that when I saw you for the first time that I would be so utterly overwhelmed by how amazing you are. […]
