the pace and all that jazz


`
it's seems the holidays
came and went
we spent christmas in a hotel 
+
on the road
`
`
`
baby girl was invited to curl 
for the state
of Ohio
`
we were together as a family
that's what it's about
`
`
`
love
`
i have a article in the latest issue of bella grace magazine
{palms clasped}
thank you for the all the kind emails you continue to send
`
`
{kindness}
`
the pace is slower here at home
the pages of the calendar continue to turn
time doesn't wait
it just doesn't
`
`
`
passport applications are being filled out
life is twisitng and turning us 
in the most beautiful and confusing ways
i trust it
i am a faithful woman
{god fearing}
i continue to trust and roll with the process
`
`
i've been writing again
+
i bought a new journal
 with each whirl of my pen i feel 
the walls i've built as of late 
begin to crumble
{self love}
`
`
`
reading in 2014 wasn't great for me
i found books were a chore 
i had to step back
2015 i will allow the words to find me
`
`
`
{let go and love and all that jazz}

Ps: i finally have a link to the right to subcribe to this tiny blog of mine.
`
`
`
bless

winter


`

`


`

`
it's been quiet in our household
final exams have kept the the college kids 
{busy}
{nervouse}
{anxious}
before that there was thanksgiving
+
turkey cookies
+
love
+
balance
`
winter break is here
we are all together as a family again
all is well
christmas is on the way
i kinda love that
{a lot}
`
i've missed you
{how've you been}
{?}
`
winter
`
winter
gray skies
hushed snow filled streets
twinkly lights
winter opens my soul
winter cracks me open with gratefulness

full swing


`

`

`
as i type this
my son is raking leaves
autumn is in full swing in the midwest
the rain has been falling as well
so...
many books are being read
i died and went to heaven over this book
i am so glad i gave it a chance
station eleven is one of the best books i've ever read
{what are you reading?}
`
banana bread is on the menu
i'm roasting a chicken as well
{What are you cooking?}
`
i turned the heat on last week to warm the house
{sigh}
{already}
`
+
 i met a deadline for a magazine article
{can't wait to share which one}
`
we dropped baby girl back at school
{after autumn break}
but
not before
we shopped for yarn
and
tights
and
more books
`
{life is good}
`
happy october
my friends
`
xoxo
