Growing Our Faith

This post is all about religion. I will not apologize for it, I will not be ashamed of talking about it. If you do not wish to read it then don’t, but you will be missing out. It’s been a little over a month now since we, as a family, decided there was a void…

Busy times

It’s been 2 weeks since I have written last, and it feels weird going that long without letting my thoughts out. Life has been insanely busy these past few weeks. Girls wrapped up their cheer season, I wrapped up my photography season, month end closing at work, lots of homework and tests, Halloween of course,…

A Look Into My Other Life… Photography!

So as promised this week’s blog will take a brief look into what I like to call my other life. Photography was is a passion of mine. I basically started about 8 years ago when a lot of people lied to me and told me I was good. In reality, looking back, I was terrible….

Family Life

I’ve strayed a little bit from the original intentions of this blog. I’m going to get back on track a bit this week and talk about our family life over the last two months. Bud has officially started preschool as of last week and he took to it right away. Day 1 – lots of…

Some Self Reflection…

It’s going on two weeks now since I had my big “aha” moment and oh, what a difference it has made. Without the judgement, criticism and guilt clouding my heart and head, I am now at a point where I can begin to talk to myself and get to the bottom of my issues that…

The cost of having children…

I remember in school when they teach you about being an adult and having children they would always reference the “annual cost to have a child”. It’s usually around $275,842,012.03, give or take a few hundred depending on how needy your child is, roughly of course. I’ve come to realize it’s all a big scare…

Forgiveness and letting go…

So before I even begin, let me start by getting the obvious out of the way. I am a huge hypocrite. I can hold grudges until the end of days.I will remember the time you screwed up. I will throw it back in your face years and years down the road. But it’s time to…

Today I am struggling

It’s safe to say my schedule is officially catching up to me. This morning I finally woke up after hitting my snooze button one too many times (did you know that after an hour your alarm clock basically says ‘well I give up’ and stops going off?) and felt like I needed to grab the…

Music, an escape within myself.

In my last post I talked about my love for words. Today I’m going to talk about my love of music. “Aren’t they sort of the same topic?” Key words, sort of. In my introduction post I told you how I have an unusual taste in music. No I’m not into screaming music, hardcore rock,…

Ineffable, but I will try anyways…

I have a love of words. They create, destroy, comfort and inspire. They are meaningless, yet they are everything. Words are just a random assortment of letters. It is up to us to give them meaning, and when done effectively they can become powerful tools. So I have to be honest for a minute. I’m…

Our Home 

A- Bare with me here, I am definitely not as eloquent as K. Recently K and I have begun to discuss when the right time will be to purchase a new house. We have long outgrown our current home, which is natural since we moved in as a family of three, and are now a…
