carnival birthday ideas

Anton’s birthday was admittedly back in April. I could tell you we’ve been waiting for the weather to warm up so we could have the party in our backyard…but truthfully, it’s just taken me this long to plan it. Been there? Yikes. Sometimes having six kids is just crazy. (source) No. It’s always crazy, haha. […]

May (Virtual) Book Club Selection!

Ok listen. You must read this book. I mean you have to. I’m so excited to share it for our (virtual) book club selection for May!  It’s about a woman from California who owns a talent agency in LA (one of her closest friends is Candace Cameron’s mother. How fun is that?!). While hosting a party in her own […]

balance amidst the busy

Hey friends! I’m over at Glow:Live as Light today. Here’s a little teaser of the post! xo As I sit at my desk in the kitchen, attempting to work, I watch through the window as our preschool-aged girls play in the backyard. In a gentle, rhythm-like cadence—almost hypnotizing—their dark little knees pump as they go […]

Uganda Workout? + a GIVEAWAY

I have met the most amazing people via social media. Truly. For example, my Instagram friend Michelle has founded her own spiritually minded workout gear, called Cross Training Couture.

I’ve been wanting a wrist tattoo for […]

adopting older kids + hilarious stories

We had a big downpour here in Denver a few weeks ago. It made me homesick for Seattle while playing in the chilly grey day with (another) cup of coffee warming my hands. Rain, shine, or snow, we walk to school. We’re kind of like the US Postal Service like that. Walking home from taking Laith […]

real (faux looking) lashes

From time to time I have friends ask about my makeup routine…so I thought today I’d share with you my favorite lash trick! Have a little grace…my before photo is straight after waking up and taking a shower. But in the attempt of being real, there it is. Thank you Jesus for mascara and lipstick. And […]

Scary Close (Book Club CHAT Day!)

Last fall I received an Advance Reader’s Copy of Scary Close while at a conference in Chicago. I kept putting off reading it though, because Donald Miller kept talking about how it was about finding true intimacy and how we’ll never feel loved until we drop the act. I didn’t really feel like that applied to […]
