I just wanted to take a minute - in this season of Father's Day - to honor the father of my two kids.  He's a great dad.  And i mean it.  He loves being a "family man" - and i love that about him.  I'm so thankful to be partners in parenting with such a good guy.  Did I mention that he is incredibly good looking too?  That's quite a bonus :)

A Little Girl

Seems like it was just yesterday that my Lily was a baby.  Now she's a little girl.  Truly I can't say that I feel like it has all gone too fast.  Thanks to my husband working so hard for our family, I've been able to stay at home to raise her.  I haven't missed much.  I feel so fortunate to have been around for all the amazing milestones.  I know I'll miss that little baby in some ways - but this little girl we have here is so much fun.

More Pictures of Lily Ann Turning TWO

Here are some pictures from Lily's birthday celebration.

She's TWO!

Today is a great day!  Lily Ann is TWO today.  I remember the joy that filled my entire being the moment she was born.  And, now, I can't imagine life without her.  She is sunlight to a dark and dreary day.  She is a precious gift that God gave us.  We are so thankful and blessed to have such a lovely and sweet daughter. Happy Birthday Lily Ann!


I am reviewing this book for the publisher, Thomas Nelson.  The book is called Captivating, by John & Stasi Eldredge.  I really enjoyed reading this book.  It was written well and a quick-read.  The perspectives were fresh and interesting.  The book would be of interest to most women, but especially to those with rough backgrounds and/or painful upbringings.  I would recommend it to a friend.  I was inspired by the authors to unveil my heart to God and fully delve in to my relationship with Christ on a deeper level.

More Miles

A friend of ours came by yesterday - with his new, fancy camera.  He took some great pictures of our boy.  Just thought I'd share them.
