Currently Speaking…

Greetings, everyone! I’m back after my two-week-long break from blogging. During those two weeks, I taught a Vacation Bible School class (the 3- and 4-year-olds) and then allowed myself some much-needed recovery time. The past six months have been a whirlwind for our whole family, but hopefully we’ll be able to enjoy our quiet little hobbit hole for at least the first part of … Read More Currently Speaking…

The Five Things Tag

I’ve been keeping this tag for one of those weeks where I’m too busy to blog, soooooooo…after a week of Camp NaNoWriMo, shopping, visits from friends, and a nasty cold, here ya go 😉 Five things you’ll find in my bag: ONE: A notebook (a writer must never be without her notebook, which is precisely why I only buy purses that are big enough … Read More The Five Things Tag

Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)

Last week I just had zero blogging inspiration. If I don’t have anything to say then I’d better not say anything at all. But then this week, we had a serious health scare/crisis with my grandfather. He got out of a very successful surgery just this afternoon, and he’s doing great–but needless to say, I’ve been very preoccupied over the past few days. Add … Read More Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)

Long Weekend, Quick Post

I didn’t really have much time to craft a long, involved post this weekend. We spent all of Friday “in town” (and when you live in a rural area, that’s a big deal); on Saturday we helped Emily and Forrest move into their new apartment (which is ADORABLE), and on Sunday Anna and I went to church before coming home for much-needed haircuts. It … Read More Long Weekend, Quick Post

2018: A Year in Review

Happy New Year! Or rather, Happy New Years’ Eve. It’s rather warm and rainy today, so we’re postponing our annual bonfire till the cool and clear weekend. But that’s fine: it gives us a chance to put away the last of the Christmas decorations. Goodbye, dear old Christmas tree…I’ll miss you the most. But before I say goodbye to 2018, it’s time for my … Read More 2018: A Year in Review

Of Weddings and Cupcakes and Old-Fashioned Desks

It’s been far too long since I last posted, but at least I have a really good excuse: my sister Emily and her fiancĂŠ Forrest were married on October 20th! My beautiful sister-in-law Jenni snapped this photo right after the wedding–which is the only reason she’s not in the picture with us. Her photography skills are out-of-this-world! (Be sure to check out her Facebook … Read More Of Weddings and Cupcakes and Old-Fashioned Desks

It’s a Whimsical Life

Here’s your apology in advance: my sister Emily is getting married in 19 days, and so blog posts may be sporadic and/or short ‘n sweet for the next couple of weeks! In the meantime, I’m quite busy and occupied with a few other interesting things apart from wedding prep. Here’s a quick, fun peek into my life right now! Number One: I’m halfway through my … Read More It’s a Whimsical Life

A List of Accomplishments

This week I was going to do a review of Darkest Hour, the most recent (and wonderful) Winston Churchill biopic starring Gary Oldman…but I used up all my mental energy editing the very long Chapter 26 of Lionhearted this morning, so I’m going to excuse myself from that blogpost this week. I got a lot of other things done over the past week, though, such as… • … Read More A List of Accomplishments
