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 ...

Dogwood in the snow

My sister lives in Tahoe, and is used to spending all winter with spiked tires AND chains just so she can get to the grocery store and work - and shoveling for hours on end day after day.  Most people put ON weight in the winter - she always loses it (whole dress sizes!) because she's shoveling so much!  Apparently, at times she can't see out her windows on the first floor, because the snow banks are too high.  (yikes!)  

Well, she knows that I wasn't made for snow, and has faithfully been calling me every day the past couple weeks asking for my "snow report."  It feels like it's snowed here practically every day for the past millennium....  So, these pics are for you, Robbi.  Almost all of them were taken today (some from the warmth of the inside looking out).

Thanks for the pics sis, it's all so beautiful. We're actually experiencing a bout of spring weather and half of our snow has disappeared. Send you some pics after our next snow storm.
