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 ...

Mural, mural on the wall...

... which one is least like me of all?

The following murals all came with the house. I can't wait till we paint over them - all of them! I've had several people tell me, "oh, but they're so beautiful!" Yeah - sure - whatever. They are SO NOT ME! And, yes, they are ALL going to be painted over. But in the meantime, I thought I'd share what we're stuck looking at.

We haven't decided which room will be painted first (we are decidedly NOT white-wall people), or if our 3.5 rooms with wallpaper will be tackled before we paint. Unfortunately, I think painting will have to wait till after Christmas. In the meantime, I still need to decide colors. This house is SO much brighter than our last one (with gobs and gobs of natural light), that I'm probably going to go with a different color palate. I just need to make sure it still works with our furniture and wall art.

Wow. That's a lot of murals! And a lot of flowers. The lemons aren't too bad. Hmmm. Paint them! Soon! :)

Is your toilet paper hanging from a fern frond? And is the fern floating in midair?
