Peach Picking :: Peach Basil & Balsamic Pizza

The last few days of summer coincided with some breathing room in Dr. Hub’s residency schedule so we drove our special gift of a car outside city limits this past weekend to where the green grass meets the blue sky border.  We picked peaches and took photos, breathed in deep and laughed light heartedly, walked […]

Weekend Recap

It’s Monday friends, and I’m holding on to this thought as I hesitantly proceed into the future, carrying the baggage of my failures, and seeking to find rest from my anxieties. The day may be bright and promising, but there’s a darkness in my heart that I won’t let hover there. Reflecting on the goodness […]

Weekend Recap

Good morning friends! It’s been a full and beautiful weekend. Dr. Hubs is on a clinic rotation, which means he gets weekends off, doesn’t have to go in until 8:30am, and gets home around 6:30pm! It’s been a treat, and I plan on drinking up as much of these two weeks as possible! {1} ducks. Met […]

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday sweet readers! I have more dishes cluttering my counters and filling my sink than I know what to do with, a husband working nights, a heart aching for my Greenville home, and a bundle of nerves in my chest as I wait for news of something slightly terrifying and exciting. But my house […]

Weekend Recap

Ah, Monday, the day I sleep in, bum around the house, take care of the dishes that have piled high all weekend, maybe throw in a load of laundry, take a walk, call a friend, and reflect on the gifts of our weekends. {1} shadow play. Aletheia’s curiosity and understanding has grown significantly since we’ve moved. […]

Weekened Recap

It’s a new week friends! Chock full of new opportunities, owies, adventures, aggravations, discoveries, and diaper changes. It’s only 2:20pm Monday afternoon, and I think we’ve already experienced all of the above. After a fun park visit, a potty accident, arriving at a Trader Joe’s location only to find they’ve moved or something, discovering another […]

A Root Out of Dry Ground

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before, but I grew up in a rather large family {nothing like this girl‘s crew featured in her fun new blog series}, a modest family of 9, 4 girls, 3 boys, 2 parents. Surprisingly, so did my husband, only there were 4 boys and 3 girls. He was second […]

Weekend Recap

Good afternoon readers! Thank you for taking time to stop in. You know I love havin’ you here. If you’re new, Mondays are the day I link up with my real life friend, Mary Beth, and share the story of my weekend through pictures. While it may not interest you that we went to the […]

Weekend Recap

Weekends are for breathing in deep . . . . . . for introducing my tiny to the big outdoor world, and taking several more deep breaths as she screams in our face the whole way home because she didn’t want to get off the subway . . . . . . for celebrating the […]

Declaring Independence

When you’re in a new city with your husband working 80+ hours a week and you’re caring for a young child that doesn’t sit still long enough for you to explain what the American flag is much less freedom and the cost of obtaining it, the 4th of July seems like another ordinary day. Nothing […]
