Tomorrow there is a very special party at my great auntie’s house. She’s calling it, Pink Party. On the surface, it’s a celebration of the pink dresser that was a Christmas gift given to her and her sister (my grandma) when they were girls. The pink dresser is famous in our family – and [...]
Hi. How was your weekend? Are you all spooked-out? We had a fun weekend – busy – but fun. Glad Chris’ parents could come visit for a few days.
My Mom and Pa come today! Hooray! I tried my best to have everything ready for the Open House before today… I was close! Still a few final [...]
Jessie is back! Hooray! A couple weeks ago she gave us some tips on choosing a journal and today she’s picking up right where she left off. Now that you have a journal, you should write in it. Thanks for the pointers, Jess.

I’m always digging up new ways to keep a journal. A while back I started making these small notebooks out of left over scraps from my big projects. My kiddos love them – they are the perfect size for their laps which is good for our car trips, church services, and quiet time. I always keep [...]
I have a 5 step program for you that will make you fall in love with journaling. If you already keep a journal, try this anyway. If you don’t keep a journal, this is a great place to start. I started keeping little travel journals in college so you can imagine the pile of little books [...]
