We introduced Brooks to a Texas tradition earlier this month…bluebonnets! Thanks for the amazing photos, Kristin Michael Photography! (You’d never know this kid had a raging double ear infection as these were taken…)

October Recap/Photo Dump
Okay, better late than never…here is what we were up to in October! These beautiful friends hosted the CUTEST baby shower for our family! So grateful for them! We visited the Pumpkin Village at the Arboretum. This girl…she gives me laugh lines and gray hairs. We received our first ever VIDEO of sweet Brooks atContinue reading “October Recap/Photo Dump”
My Happy Place
Ah, Lake Hamilton. There are fewer places I feel more connected to my past, present, future, and God than when I am at our family’s lake house in Hot Springs. There’s something about taking your kids to a place where you grew up and seeing their faces light up the way yours did (and stillContinue reading “My Happy Place”
This little princess has been absolutely CRACKING US UP lately with all of the funny and witty things she says, so I had to take a moment and write them down. I worried I’d forget them otherwise!

Anniversary/Father’s Day Weekend!
We had the sweetest weekend around here celebrating all the touchy-feely things. 🙂 Friday was our fifth anniversary, and to celebrate Kate took an EPIC 3-hour nap. She must’ve worn her little self out with all that intelligent play she was doing…don’t worry, we’ve already applied to MENSA. We went for sushi that night andContinue reading “Anniversary/Father’s Day Weekend!”
What Uncle Jack Taught Me
This morning, I was devastated to learn that after a four-week stay in the ICU, my “Uncle” Jack had suffered too many surgical complications, and he passed away. Though I am glad he is no longer in pain, I am heartbroken to lose a man who played such a crucial role in my life. JackContinue reading “What Uncle Jack Taught Me”
