I Should Be Asleep, But…

It’s close to 11pm and I should definitely be asleep. Most of the time, my mornings start at 5:15am. My alarm goes off, I literally tuck and roll out of bed, open the door SO SO slowly, tiptoe past a sleeping baby and creep upstairs. I have workout clothes already upstairs. I change my clothes,…

Breathe

If you read this and think… those sentences are short. She sounds kind of done… you’d be right. The past week has been a little tiring. We were on vacation with family at the beach for part of the week and then the second half of the week, Taylor and I went to the beach….

Tomorrow Will Be Kinder

“Stay with us, Lord Jesus, stay with us.   Stay with us, it soon is evening. Stay with us, Lord Jesus, stay with us, it soon is evening and night is falling.” I tend to think in song lyrics sometimes.  I guess it’s part of being a musician.  I have songs from when I was…

A Letter to Selah About Commitment

The Beginning of Selah’s Birth, Pt. 3

Selah was born 4 months ago today so I think it’s only right that I do my best to finish her birth story today.  When we got to baby & co, I basically spent all my time in the shower or the huge tub.  The hot water helped considerably, but I did not like the…

The Beginning of Selah’s Birth, pt. 2

There will probably be one more birth post after this.  It’s a long story, so I’ve tried to split it up.  This one is a bit long 🙂 _______________________________________________________________ The week or two before Selah was born, I had already begun to have Braxton Hicks.  I was never confused about whether or not they were…

The Beginning of Selah’s Birth

My next few posts will be about Selah, pregnancy, and her birth.  I’ll try not to be too graphic and I’ll give you a warning ahead of time if something is going to be TMI.  This one’s pretty safe 🙂 When I found out I was pregnant, I honestly had no idea what I was…

Who I Am (pt. 2)

Oh man.  TGIF.  I love teaching, but man is it exhausting sometimes.  Today was rough around the edges, but that’s a post for another day.  If you haven’t read pt. 1 you’re gonna want to. _______________________________________________________________ After Christmas of 2013, my mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, and their dog came to our apartment in January for…

Who I Am (pt. 1)

Anyone who really knows me knows that I don’t like sharing a whole lot. If I share something with you, it means I trust you.
