I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

When presented with something new, our Alex is a bit ... timid. So, when we were at his grandparents' farm this past weekend, and Alex was asked if he wanted to ride their newly broken horse, he was less than excited. When we went outside to see the horse and he saw how big she was, the first look on his face was best described as sheer terror! But as soon as he saw his daddy get up in the saddle, he was all too eager to join him! It only took a few minutes riding for him to be hooked! He even spent some time riding alone in the saddle. We practically had to pull him away from her when it was time to go home an hour or so later. We're obviously planning another trip to visit Princess soon!
