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 ...

The Big Reveal!

Last week Aaron and the guys painted 5 rooms here on Dogwood - living room, dining room, hallway/stairs, master, and Harrison's room.  (Yes, I'm counting the hall as a room - it's on 2 floors.)  Aaron's now back at work, and I'm working on putting everything back. *grin*  Three rooms are now "presentable" (and pretty much the rest of the house is still a disaster area!).  Nine of the eleven lights I purchased have been installed (the other 2 are on back order.)  I still need to buy curtains and replace the hunter green blinds (that came with the house) ... but one project at a time.

(Please excuse the random train and glove lying around.)

So ... for those of you who've seen the "before" ... this is SUCH an improvement, eh?

Thank you Quentin, Mark & Aaron for your hours and hours and hours of work!  Thanks also Virginia & Emily for giving up your men to help!

This house is finally starting to feel like our HOME!
