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 ...

Day Out with Thomas

Alex has out-grown the magic of Thomas ... but he's still a die-hard train lover.  That is, unless he's around other kids who make fun of him for it.  Then he'll just not mention the whole topic to spare himself the ridicule. Since he's never seen Thomas at Strasburg, we finally took him this past weekend.  Grandma, a girlfriend's daughter (who's visiting us for the week), and I were all there to be part of the memory.  ... It was special.

(excuse any and all wind-swept hair in the following photos.  it was 93 in the shade, and we were grateful for any and ALL breeze that came our way!)
