We just recently moved to Atlanta & decided to rent an apartment for a year before trying to buy a house. It is the best decision for us right now, but living in an apartment after several years of home ownership is hard. The water pressure is terrible. There's carpet everywhere (not great for toddlers… Continue reading My Gratitude Journal
Happy International Women's Day! I'm inspired by Jodi from The Creative Life In Between to share my artwork with you ❤ Only women can participate in creation with God.
Focusing on things eternal, together. "Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris." This service was much needed in light of the recent news that hits home. Thou the spring of all my comfort, More than life to me; Whom have I on earth beside Thee? Whom in heaven but Thee? Savior, Savior,… Continue reading Ash Valentine’s
Happy New Year to all! And Happy Blogaversary to me! 3 years! It has been a great 3 years indeed. If you're a fan of The Middle on ABC, you'll remember that Sue Heck always themes her years.
