One + One = Three?

I'm pregnant. I've been keeping this little peanut (literally) of knowledge a secret so long, even Husband is surprised I kept quiet. We shared the news with our parents -- including a trip to Kentucky to tell everybody in person. Now, it's time to tell our secret! To say this announcement comes as a surprise is [...]

His Holiness Pope Francis

I am not Catholic but with the recent election of a new pope, I am intrigued by the ancient workings of the Catholic Church. I did not follow the conclave very close, but I was home when the white smoke emerged from the roof of the Sistine Chapel and I've read and watched international news [...]

29 Things I’ve Learned in 29 Years

Today is my 29th birthday. Happy Birthday to all the babies born on December 17. 29 things I've learned in 29 years: 1. No matter how old I get, I'll always be Daddy's girl and want my Mom around when I'm sick. There's just something about a Mom's healing touch. 2. Reading is food for [...]

RightNow Conference

Last week, I had the distinct pleasure of attending the RightNow Conference in Dallas, Texas with three other leaders from my church. Not only did I have the opportunity to learn valuable church and business leadership skills, but I also attended two sessions led by my friend and author, Margaret Feinberg. Overall, it was a [...]

Bloggers & Bluebonnets

Over the weekend, I had the most fun with a bunch of ladies from the Facebook group, Texas Bloggers (find us here). We met in Fort Worth at A Piece of Work, a do-it-yourself art studio. The concept is genius, even for a non-artistic person like myself. Most of us, I think, live within 30-40 [...]

my speakers are going boom-boom {what’s playin’ on my stereo}

Ashley (at Steel Magnolias & Sweet Tea) recently posted a list of her current favorite tunes. She inspired me to create my own, which coincidentally, is very similar. We might be sweet-tea-drinking-sisters-from-another-mother because our taste in music and sweet liquid beverages is finer than frog hair. I love getting in the car, turning on the [...]
