Married LifeI am blown away at all of the blessings of married life. Staying up late reading together in bed to oldies on Pandora, making a huge mess in the kitchen as we prepare adventurous meals, impromptu waltzing in the living room when our favorite songs come on the radio, curling up on the couch with a … Continue reading At the moment…
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
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”

Nevertheless, … Continue reading The Mini-Reviews Post
Recently, I had a birthday, and let me tell you, it was nothing short of fabulous! Any day that combines books, the color blue, beautiful weather, a Benedict Cumberbatch movie, dear friends and church football is bound to be fantastic. Add birthday cake and candles into the mix, and it's just about perfect. If I … Continue reading A Literary Birthday Party
Today is a happy day - it's the beginning of a two-week holiday for my family! The next fortnight will be filled with traveling, visiting with family and friends, lots of laughter and no school. I'm already getting super excited about the socks I'm going to knit, the books I'm going to read and … Continue reading A Little Bit of Everything
Short Review: Do. Not. Watch. This. Movie. If you want the long review (don't worry, I'll confine it to one paragraph) keep reading. I'll be including spoilers. In short, Noah started out as an interesting, fantasy-ish version of the Bible story. I was OK with the magic rock giants, the evolutionist version of creation, and … Continue reading Noah, Knitting and Nickleby
