This Road We Travel

This Road We Travel Thanks so much for all the love on Monday's post. We're preparing for a storm here.  They've released the schools 2 hours early to get home before the high winds start.  I've secured the yard the best I can. As a Florida girl, I'm pretty good at preparing for high winds [...]

Love in Action

Love in Action

Valentine's Day. Happy Valentine's Day!! A day that has become symbolic with love. How do you show somebody that you love them? Is it with chocolate, wine, and roses? A heartfelt letter proclaiming your undying love? Or is it much more simple? A shy smile, an intertwining of fingers as you stroll along, a stolen [...]

Time Travel Tuesday – The Christmas Nail

Time Travel Tuesday – The Christmas Nail

Traditions. Most families have them. Whether they show up in holidays, weddings, other celebration, or in the daily workings of life. One of our family traditions was started when my children were very young.  In the process of adding ornaments to our Christmas tree, I stumbled across the Christmas Nail.   Christmas Nail. With Christmas [...]

Peaceful Horizon

Peaceful Horizon

Peaceful Horizon. This time of year seems to be busy, busy, busy. The oldest went on a discovery flight and made a discovery! He loved flying so much that he is now exploring his options to become a pilot. The middle child finally made it to his brace freedom day.  He has braces no longer and [...]

WPC: Holiday Season

WPC:  Holiday Season

Holiday Season. The photo challenge of the week is "It's not this time of year without..." Having just enjoyed Thanksgiving with my Virginia family, I can definitely say "family" "laughter" "good food".  But thinking beyond that...into my existence as a Virginian these past 3 years, what is something that I enjoy about the holiday season?

Love letter to my daughter

Love letter to my daughter

1,000 wishes I've wished for you. 1,000 more will I wish. In my youth, I dreamed of someday having a daughter. As your dad and I fell in love, I sat on his back porch telling him of my dreams. He told me that he hoped that my daughter was his daughter too. A story [...]

Turning my eyes to the hills

Turning my eyes to the hills

Turning my eyes to the hills. It's confession time! I've been in and out of the blogosphere and in and out of social media.  I'm trying to keep up because I genuinely care what everyone has to say and share.  My mind has been overwhelmed with processing stuff going on in my life.   I [...]

Reflections On The Day Before My Birthday

Reflections On The Day Before My Birthday

The Day Before My Birthday If the title didn't give it away, tomorrow is my birthday. Birthdays always seem a time to ponder and reflect about how far I've come and where I'm heading.  What do I want to accomplish?   Am I being true to who I'm called to be? September 11th is a [...]

This is Home

Bloom where you are planted. This is the thought that has been weaving its way in and out of my mind for the past week.  Summertime makes me restless.  People are in and out town.  I am in and out of town.  Routines are thrown out the window.  It makes me miss home. And then [...]

Change is always happening

I've had some thoughts rolling around for awhile, and yet when I put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard), they do not flow out cohesively.  I am hoping that today they have found a way to flow with the ease of a river racing to its conclusion. The oldest became an official solo driver [...]
