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 ...

Anything Goes

We've been painting part of our house - long story. Friday and Saturday a girlfriend helped me/us paint, and by Saturday afternoon the fumes were getting to me (the rain and obviously high humidity really didn't help!). So, we drove up to Aaron's parents' farm on Saturday evening and spent Easter with them.

Aaron comes from musical blood - his father is a musician - mostly guitar, but has recently picked up the mandolin as well. His Gramma (who's in her 80s) is still a piano teacher! And his brother plays the drums quite well. So many times when we get together there's music of some sort involved. Alex absolutely loves this, and is finally getting up the courage to want to join in now and then. Saturday evening's activities ended up including a short jam session.

Harrison was amazed to see his Daddy making such beautiful sounds come from (aka messing around with) the guitar!
For those "city folk" like myself, Field is actually playing a TURKEY CALL! It started with him showing Alex how to use it, and somehow it ended up becoming a musical instrument! I guess when you're that musical, anything goes!
