Rest.

Rest.

Today was good for my soul… Ray and I snuggled up with Molls and spent most of the morning recovering from the last few weeks. We opted for no moving, no unpacking, and no cleaning this morning. We even splurged and fixed ourselves cinnamon rolls with EXTRA DOUBLE icing for breakfast and sloppy joe’s for … Continue reading

You Are The One Thing That I Know

There’s a beauty that we never know what the future holds. Beneath the surface we are the calm, we are the storm. I’m not sunset or a hurricane or a Vincent Van Gogh. You are the one thing that I know. It’s in the wine we drink, dirty dishes in the kitchen sink, and the … Continue reading

Happy Friday. Sleep???

It’s 11:28 on a Friday and I should be sleeping. It’s 11:28 on a Friday and I should be sleeping. It’s 11:28 on a Friday and I should be sleeping. I keep telling myself that but it’s not working. :P Ray and I have been catching our zzzzz’s on an air mattress for the last … Continue reading

Life Changes for The Edmonds

Life Changes for The Edmonds

You know that awkward conversation you have with a friend who you used to be really close with, and then don’t talk for 6 months, THEN you decide to catch up? For the first few minutes it’s really awkward as you try to get you “flow” back. But then you just dive in and by the end of it you pick up right where you left off? Continue reading

Baking Cookies on my George Foreman Grill!!

YALL – This is my best discovery since being married. YOU CAN MAKE COOKIES ON A GEORGE FOREMAN. I’m pretty much obsessed with this trusty indoor grill. I recently discovered it’s many valuable uses beyond your generic hamburger or steak. It’s changing my life. I’m impatient. Everyone knows that. I love my grill because it heats … Continue reading

From The Mountains To The Sea

From The Mountains To The Sea

Picture this last night: the light are out. Ray is 30 seconds away from falling asleep. Laura yells “OH MY GOSH.” Ray jolts in natural defense while thinking we’re being attacked “TOMORROW IS MINE AND ANNALEE’S FRIENDAVERSARY!” Sigh. He’s used to Annalee and I flipping out over random crap. He congratulates me, rolls over. Falls … Continue reading

Bangs Are Not For Everyone

Bangs Are Not For Everyone

I knew it was a bad idea. I KNEW the second I walked into the mall salon for a 5:00 walk-in… this would not end pretty. I knew using a hairstylst I had never met before was a terrible plan. I knew her leopard print floor length skirt and Farrah Fawcett hair with a curly back was … Continue reading

I am a Newlywed Moron

I am a Newlywed Moron

I’ve locked myself out of the house at least 5 times in the last 6 months. I set my alarm to wake up and fix him breakfast, but instead sleep an extra 20 minutes. I forget about the laundry and leave it in the washing machine for days on end. Sometimes our fridge gets so … Continue reading

The Easiest DIY Name Banner

The Easiest DIY Name Banner

I think I just completed the least complex DIY name banner possible. I lucked out man. I went to Michaels in search of pre-cut pennants or fabric to cut into pennants..and walked out with this nifty fabric/cardboard duo cut in the perfect shape. The actual purpose of these are to make homemade journals (I think). But … Continue reading

Grandma’s Green Beans & Tasting Life

Grandma’s Green Beans & Tasting Life

My Grandma Holderfield canned these green beans last year. I might be crazy, but I can’t cook with them.. It’s one piece of her I’m not ready to let go of yet. When Grandma came to see my house last spring she brought a cardboard box full of canned goods from her pantry. These green … Continue reading

Bangin’

Bangin’

I’m an impulsive person. IDK what’s wrong with me. Once I get something on my mind, I HAVE to finish it. Ask Ray if I’ll start organizing my sock drawer at 10pm. Ask Annalee if I’ll call on the way home from work and say “I’m going to build a shelf tonight.” I don’t know … Continue reading

Learning To Write in Pencil

Learning To Write in Pencil

Every trip to Nicaragua is challenging in some way or another. God uses this week to chip away at my core and continuously mold me into the child he desires to see. Sometimes I get so busy in the schedule and details that it’s easy to focus on how God is changing lives of my … Continue reading
