I’ve felt it coming on for a while. The exhaustion. The burnout. The sinking, drowning feeling I can’t quite escape. I come up for gulps of air, gasping for breath. I know these patterns aren’t good for me. I know I need to reset, let go, set things aside. Continue reading “Sinking Deep”
Happy 2016, friends.
This new year is certainly a season of change in many areas of my life. It’s the end of our first semester at MHS, the beginning of a new semester of grad school, and so much more. All of this is exciting and overwhelming in a great way.
Here is a look back at our year in reflection and gratitude for all the ways God has blessed us in 2015. (Just ignore the fact that I haven’t posted here since September…) We are still in awe of the many blessings of 2015 and can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store. Continue reading “Our Top 8 in 2015”
I don’t have words to describe the craziness of my days over the past three weeks. I feel like I need to just have “School is back, y’all” stamped on my forehead so people who pass me in the store will understand and have less judgmental glances when they see my out-of-control hair, rumpled clothes (despite my ironing nine hours earlier), and crazy, slightly glazed-over look.

In a previous “Fab Five” post, I discussed items on my wish list, which was really popular, so I thought I would make it into its own “thing.” Most of these are accumulating in my wish list right now since grad school monopolizes so much time, but I can’t help but “window shop” a little online. I don’t trust myself to do the same in real stores– it gets me in trouble (especially in Target). After looking at my list, I realized that many items are books, so I figured I’d group them together for this edition of “I Spy.”
One year ago today, Zach started (what I thought was) a small side project that he called Crown Town Soccer. It was in the midst of a three week stay at the Atlantis Lodge, our family’s pet-friendly motel on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina (shameless plug). I was home going through last-minute wedding preparations and he was helping out around the motel. In the time that he wasn’t working, this was his project.
