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 ...

The boys and I went to a friend's house yesterday and spent almost all day there! We had such a great time! There weren't even any serious temper-tantrums or injuries, and Harrison took two naps! (I'm half tempted to just show up there once a week 'cause it was such a great day.)

I was shown around the garden, and got to see how GINORMOUS the plants in her backyard grow. It's like there's miracle grow naturally occurring in the dirt. I had just a tinge of jealousy, though I shouldn't because she's shared the fruits (and vegetables) of her labor with us several times already - YUM! Maybe next year I'll get a little garden. That would be nice.

The list of goodies I'd like to grow keeps growing. But for now - I'll satisfy myself with the shared love I keep receiving from those who have an abundance this year. Earlier this week my Aunt brought me a whole bunch of fresh goodies too! There's nothing quite like real fruits and veggies - you know, the kind that are allowed to ripen on the vine, not on a shelf at the grocery store.
