Saying Goodbye

This is it. My last day at work. My last day wearing my uniform. I can't believe this is my last day. It's so bitter sweet and I've cried almost everyday this week. I've been doing this for 7 years so it's been difficult realizing the transition that is about to take place in my... Continue Reading →

Being Weary

Oh. My. Goodness. I feel like it has been absolutely forever since I've written anything or been on WordPress. Last month and the beginning of this month have been a doozy. Last month I was nurse Artra because my husband and kids were all sick together. There were many trips to the ER for high... Continue Reading →

Controlling Your Emotions

When my husband puts the kids to bed they are... Continue Reading →

Who Are You?

My pastors always talk about identity and who we are in Christ, which I love because I've never hear many pastors talk about it before. I feel like I haven't quite understood it until recently and it reminds me of being in the Army. Shout out to the Veterans and Active Duty personnel. While in... Continue Reading →

Delicious Almond Milk

My maternity leave ends Monday (boooo). Since I have been on maternity leave I feel like I've been flourishing in the kitchen, because I have more time. I've cooked and experimented more than ever before. I wish I shared the things I cooked. Recently I experimented with almond milk. My little cub, Ezra, has eczema... Continue Reading →

Clothed in Love

Today I realized how much I tell my kids I love them and how I then try to demonstrate by giving them hugs and affirming them. It's a constant thing. I want them to never doubt or question my love for them. I don't want them to seek love and attention in anyone or anything... Continue Reading →
