It's been a little over two months since I entered into an entirely new, uncharted, slightly scary and altogether wonderful season of life: courtship. My best friend and I entered into our relationship, eyes wide with excitement, stomachs full of butterflies and hearts full of faith. The past nine weeks have been the most incredible of … Continue reading The Joys of Mutual Weirdness

Sorry, Heidi. 😉 These questions are just plain fun, and I've had a great time answering them. Everyone, consider yourselves henceforth tagged! 1.

I just got back from vacation. It was a whirlwind in every sense of the word. We were going full-speed from dawn till dark every day, trying to pack in as many things as we could into seven short days. Even though the entire vacation was designed for pure fun and relaxation, I actually had a … Continue reading Just Say “Thanks”

Happy St. Patrick's Day!! This holiday has always been kind of a big deal in my family. Green streamers get taped up all over the house, we enjoy neon-green pistachio muffins from the local grocery store, and sing "Be Thou My Vision" during family devotions. Perhaps it's because we've spent weeks in Ireland in the … Continue reading Top O’ The Mornin’ To Ya!
Kellie Falconer of the lovely blog, Accordion to Kellie, is throwing a magnificent blog party! Up until a couple of weeks ago, I had no idea how a blog party worked. Though I'm still very much a novice in the whole "blog party" business, I am quite enjoying my very first introduction to it! It's … Continue reading The Literary Heroine Blog Party
It's not a very good picture, and I did forget to add a nose onto my snowman, but I have been wanted to do this Calvin and Hobbes snowman my entire life! 😀 I hope you all are staying warm and enjoying the beauty of this cold weather!
I suppose that if I were a truly accomplished blogger, I would have written this post last night! But New Years' Day is surely just as special as New Years' Eve, don't you think? This past year has been such a blur of new experiences that last night, I actually had a hard time remembering … Continue reading Happy New Years’ Everyone!
