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 ...

Heat Wave

Yesterday the thermometer hit 38 - an absolute heat wave!  Never mind the snow still on the ground - it's melted enough that we can now see some plants peeking out - it's practically shorts and sandals weather!  I asked my honey to sweep all the cinders out of the garage, and he decided to surprise me by washing the cars too.

But I caught him in the act!  Isn't he AMAZING??!!??!!

Like I've said a million times before - save money one place so you can spend / save / invest it elsewhere.  My honey saved $12 yesterday by washing the cars by hand. I'm so glad that we agree on this philosophy - it makes the biggest difference that we're both on the same page.  We're not really frugal (or cheap) - we just deliberately pick and choose what we'll spend money on, and what we won't.
