InstaFriday

I love Fridays and sharing a glimpse of our week through my iphone photos. Absolutely love it…it’s like scrapbooking for lazy girls. In light of Asher’s “Failure to Thrive” scare, I took lots of evidence that he does, in fact, sit in a highchair with food on the tray. We found out that homeboy likes […]

Failure to Thrive?

As I write this, I’m sitting at Panera immediately after Asher’s 9 Month well check. I’m trying to catch a few moments to myself and process after a few hard days emotionally. The latest wave to crash against me? Hearing the pediatrician mention the words “failure to thrive” in reference to Asher. I mean…have you […]

InstaFriday

Happy Friday! I love slow, quiet mornings that involve my coffee and a cinnamon roll. They are my favorite. Using my Dean & Deluca coffee mug makes me think of the trip I took during college to visit my sister in NYC. I bought it the morning I stood outside The Today Show. We’ve been […]

InstaFriday

I spent a little time with a long lost friend… Unfortunately, she’s a little sick and needs to go to the doctor to get a tune-up and realignment… The good news: I finished part of my project list and a present for our friend Titus in spite of my embroidery machine acting weird. Isn’t this […]

Taste Test

My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” ~Forrest Gump It’s true. You don’t know what you’re gonna get. Each day that unfolds is like biting into a new chocolate truffle and hoping for the caramel filling. But…what if you don’t get the caramel filling? […]

Again with the standing in baskets… My flowers are making me happy. The vincas are so bright and colorful. I caught this one as it was unfurling, and it struck me as so lovely. It looks like a perfectly pink pinwheel. Hydrangeas are my favorite. My hydrangea bush is a transplant from my granny-in-law’s yard. […]

An Embassy Tale

And now, a fun story that will be written down in our adoption journal… While we were in Washington, D.C for the 2:1 Conference, our Dossier paperwork was in the same city. I knew it was there and joked about wondering if they needed me to hand-deliver it somewhere to speed up the process. A […]

Dossier…Check!

I am beyond giddy to be able to announce that we are finally DTE status. What is DTE? Dossier to Ethiopia! Our paperwork process has been a rather long one compared to some, but we are confident that God’s timing is perfect. We’ve had bumps in the road with our paperwork~sometimes it was our fault, […]

Jonah Says… {Mother’s Day Card Edition}

Jonah came home with a Mother’s Day card from church yesterday. Besides the expected fun answers like my age (1 years old) or my desired occupation when I grow up (Ballet Dancer), these sort of questionnaires can be so revealing. For example, Jonah’s answer to the second question “My favorite thing to do with my […]

InstaFriday

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in InstaFriday, but I’m back and ready to share! I really need to figure out a new system for keeping up, so if you are a fellow InstaFriday poster, feel free to share your system in the comments. For now, I’m playing catch up… Asher found the toilet […]
