Do you remember this Super Bowl Commercial? I don't think I will ever forget it. I remember where I was when it came on my tv screen. Paul Harvey's voice and the images captivated me. This is how my mom's family grew up. These are my grandparents and uncle, and now a c...

My Grandparents are farmers. Growing up, being at their house was one of my very favorite places to be. My grandma is strong in pretty much every way. She loves her family generously and fiercely. She generally either making a meal or cleaning up said meal. My grandpa...

Hello, friends.

There are so many things I am thinking and feeling right now. So many. Here are a few that I think are worth sharing.

Growing up, of course, summer is the best season. I mean, I loved sleeping in and having a little slower pace than the rest of the year offered. There was also a sense of adventure, whether it was because of a family adventure or because there was a little more indepen...

In less than one month I will have a ten-year-old. 


We are entering into the world of double-digits fast.
