Some random thoughts spilled onto the page.

Reality: Every time I see this picture, I wish I could go back in time and watch him hold her like this again.  He loved to hold her.  He was so good with her.  I melt when I see this picture.  I fall in love with them both again and again.  Who gets lucky enough […]

A Day of Thanks

It’s Thanksgiving Day.  We are at home.  Oatmeal is at the park with the dogs, and I am here in our bedroom relaxing with a few vanilla candles lit.  Poppyseed is snoozing in her room. It’s a wonderfully relaxing Thanksgiving so far. It’s just the three of us.  I don’t think we’ve ever had a […]

The 7 Experiment – Possessions

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” […]

A Day in the Life of Poppyseed

I was driving to the library with Poppyseed this week when I heard a little whisper from The Man Upstairs. “Enjoy these days.”  I looked in the rearview mirror at Poppyseed.  She was staring right back at me, sucking away on that paci, and when we made eye contact she scrunched her nose up and […]

The Seven Experiment – Clothes

Hello dear readers.  I wanted to blog about a book I picked up a few weeks ago – The 7 Experiment.  Unfortunately I don’t know of any Bible studies (we are out of town practically every weekend so we rarely attend church) so I asked Oatmeal to read and complete this with me. “Do you […]

It’s time to try again.

So, I said I’d post once my miscarriage was behind me.  I guess it’s that time. I don’t really know why I feel the need to write about this.  Here goes.  Maybe part of me wants to get this out somewhere. In my previous post I explained how it all happened.  Last month I took […]

Have a cupcake or six.

I have really enjoyed this week.  I made a point to try and do some festive things with Poppyseed this Halloween, and I’m glad I did.  I was a little behind in getting her costume (October 30th found me running from store to store in desperate search of something/anything) but in the end I prevailed […]

Poppyseed is 18 Months Old

Our little one is officially 1.5 years old as of last week.  I had no idea how quickly they could learn at this age.  She learns new mannerisms, words, and skills every minute it seems. Some updates… just off the top of my head. Stats – For once I actually took her to a pediatrician […]

Lola has a …..

“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” -E.M. Forester A few weekends ago, I went on a miniature shopping spree and bought 2 pairs of pants and a few fitted shirts.  A day or so after that, a […]

I’m going to start off this post by stating the obvious… This.  Weather.  Is.  Awesome. The past couple of days have been a lot of fun.  We went to Sealy to stay with Oatmeal’s parents over the weekend.  The cold front was coming in, we didn’t have a bunch of projects at home to take […]
