A trip to Goldsboro

Well, our trip to Goldsboro last weekend was most definitely eventful.  After our church’s youth meeting on Saturday, we headed across the state of NC to Goldsboro, where Stephen was preaching all three services on Sunday.We made it about halfway there before we had a flat tire.  That was the quickest AAA call we’ve ever had – from the time I called to the time the truck pulled up behind our van, it was 30 minutes.  20 minutes after that […]

I went keto to try to lose some weight, and discovered I feel amazing now that gluten is out of my diet. I’ve tried some gluten free foods and honestly […]

It’s definitely spring – wow – is the pollen count through the roof or what?!? It’s been so beautiful out lately. It makes me just want to stay outside all day, but of course that doesn’t happen.

Services have been SO good at church lately, and the Holy Spirit has really been working on my […]

Growing

Here’s a picture of Esther that my friend Sara took the other day. Esther is now 3 months old. Crazy. I can’t believe how quickly time goes by. Today is Caleb’s birthday. He turned four today. . .and I didn’t take a single picture. He was so consumed with his “Happy Birt-day take” and the fact that it was going to be chocolate! There were three little ones at my side the entire time, watching and hoping for licks and […]

Life gets busy

Sometimes it feels like I’ve fallen off the face of the earth, when life has just been super busy. There have been so many things going on, but making it here to post about it has not always been easy. The boys have a blast outside and often come to the door to show me the treasures they’ve found. This time it was a lizard. They also like to be silly. Anna loves her baby sister. I partnered with Groopdealz.com […]
