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 ...

This is the dawning of the Age of Independence

... Okay, so he's only 12 months, maybe it's just the beginning of the dawn...

Harrison has suddenly gotten extra curious lately, which translates as more messes for me to clean up. But I'm so excited that he's interested in his environment and just beginning to want to do things for himself. (I really can't wait for him to walk - I'm serious!) We need to be super careful and QUICK when we open the fridge door 'cause he recognizes the sound of the door opening, and before we know it he's climbed inside! Here are three pics we snapped within the past week.

Uh oh. The toy puppy's gonna eat my cheese!I almost didn't add this photo because my pantry is so disorganized at the moment, but I absolutely love his resourcefulness in getting a "step stool" to reach higher!Look, Mom, I'm getting lunch all by myself. Yummy meatballs!
