We had a visitor this past Saturday. I say visitor, but she’s already family to us. She settled herself right in like she had been here for years. I know we haven’t known each other for that long, but it doesn’t feel that way. It feels like she’s always been in our lives, or was supposed to be. Do you know that saying, “I never … Continue reading Let’s Just Say I’m Falling in Love
We met with an expectant mama this past weekend. It went well and we love her so much already. We met at a restaurant and were there for three hours.

Please read my past posts on … Continue reading HAPPY DANCE FOR THIS MAMA (AND HER SON…LITERALLY)!!!
Last week, my little family took our fall trip to Ohio. We saw family that we had missed dearly, friends that I haven’t seen in years, and met some friends for the first time in “real life”. It was lovely. We arrived on Saturday evening and spent that night with my parents. It still amazes me how small everything looks compared to how it seemed … Continue reading Palmer Ohio Trip 2014
