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 ...

Chuck ...

We bought the house on Dogwood six days ago.

Every room will be painted eventually - but we haven't decided colors yet.

Every window treatment needs to be changed - but at least the neighbors can't look in.

Three rooms need wallpaper removed - but we haven't even researched how to go about doing that yet.

Except for the hideous wallpaper, there's technically nothing wrong with our kitchen. There's not nearly enough storage, and it's a poor use of the space, but it's technically "ok". We hope to gut it next year - but we haven't started saving up money for that yet.

We need to buy more furniture. Our finished basement is practically empty, and our living room desperately needs a couch. I have five million books that need a spot on non-existent bookcase shelves. We've agreed to wait at least a month or two before spending that kind of money.

We bought the house on Dogwood six days ago.

All furniture is arranged and we're 75% unpacked.

We decided that this evening we needed a celebratory reward (and a break) - so we took the boys to Chuck E. Cheese.

The boys should be sound asleep by now. Time to tackle the master bedroom closet and put my clothes away in my (new-to-me) dresser.
