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 ...

Let's go fly a kite...

When we woke up on Friday morning it was still summer (with a high in the 90s) here on Dogwood.  By Saturday it was autumn (high of 63).  So, per Alex's request, we took advantage of the "winds of change" on Friday evening and flew kites!  We live on top of a mountain (at 1200 feet, it's a mountain, not a hill), and up behind our neighbor's house is an empty field (which is also known as the sledding hill). It was a perfect spot - got the wind at the top of the mountain, no nearby trees to tangle the string, and lots of running room!  Our kids (and the neighbor kids) had a blast! (And I enjoyed sitting in a chair puffing away on oxygen, and taking lots of pictures.)
