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 ...

Chocolate Heaven

Once a month I crave chocolate. Growing up I always thought women who said that were crazy. That was until I got married and started birth control pills. My hormones have been forever changed. I know I'm not alone in this insatiable craving, because when I mentioned the idea of a Chocolate Fountain Party to the six other ladies at my MOPS table, everyone willingly freed up their calendars and came. No one seemed to mind that it was at 9:30 in the morning, and all the kids were running around our feet in my small (cramped) townhouse - pulling out every toy they could find in between trips of their own to the glorious fountain of abandonment!
Aaron had our digital camera with him on the ski trip in Utah, so some of the ladies helped out and brought theirs. These photos were taken by Kiersten (except for the one she's in ... I'm not sure who took that one, but I know it was with her camera anyway). Thank you, dearie!
Everyone had an amazing time - who wouldn't when there's unlimited chocolate involved! My fountain is available if anyone wants to borrow it. Though I'll forewarn you in advance, it tastes MUCH BETTER if you buy my mother-in-law's chocolate to melt in it (she owns a chocolate company). YUMMY!
