{Today's Letters}

Monday, March 30, 2015

Dear Timothy James, over weekend we bought a wood burning stove. This felt like a right of passage, kind of like when we purchased our first reading lamp and snow shovel. Dear Brave, the map above your crib has temporarily been moved into the guestroom until you no longer desire to eat Mexico. I promise, guacamole tastes better than paper. Dear Whole30, for the past three years you and I have kicked of April together. Here's to another month of eating clean and having hot snakes for days. Dear Husband, next month we celebrate 10 years of marriage. TEN YEARS. Looking forward to fishing with you in Montana just as much as I am roasting our first S'mores together on the stove this fall!

Happy Monday, brave ones! Twinner challenged me to feel my healthiest by our 35th birthday (June 8th). I've recently become a Plexus ambassador in an attempt to take my healthy living to a new level. Lemme know if you're interested in hearing more about it or in joining me for Whole30 on Wednesday! Until then, I'm going to be enjoying every bowl of ice cream and cupcake I can get my hands on.

Sometimes we all just need a little attention.
Happy Sunday, y'all!

{Gratitude Lately}

Sunday, March 22, 2015

Lately I've been thankful for thrifted oak chairs and wool Chimayo textiles.

For draft bear.

For well loved college hoodies and pour over coffee.

For morning Alfalfa crawls.

For inspiration under foot while walking here.

And for new photos of my mom seen for the first time.
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
Happy Sunday, brave ones.
What have you been thankful for lately?

Crib cruncher #iliketothinkshesbuildingaraft
This girl has been chewing on EVERYTHING lately.
I guess that's a step up from licking the walls?
Happy Saturday, y'all!

{A Kickstarter Worth Backing} John Lucas

Thursday, March 19, 2015

Two years ago one of you introduced me to the talented John Lucas by sending me the above video.
Afterwards, I downloaded his album on on Noise Trade and
liked it so much it was the only thing I listened to in my car for months!
Every song moved me, especially this one.

A few months later, one you sent me his Pursuit of Bravery video when I was pregnant with our little girl.
{As if I needed another reason to name our first born Brave!}

A few weeks I had the privilege of meeting Lucas, his wife Danielle, and his brother Judson.
I was so encouraged to hear more about his passion for music and desire to produce a full-length album!
Over the years I've backed a handful of projects on Kickstarter.
I can't tell you how blessed I think you'll be by supporting Lucas' project.
Be sure and head over to his Kickstarter page and watch his latest video!
Only 6 days left to get in on this goodness.
You'll be happy you did.
Happy Thursday, brave ones.

{Today's Letters} Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Dear Timothy James, yesterday you started making your first batch of beer for Brave's 1st Birthday party. Here's to making our friend's the hoppiest party guests on the planet. Dear Ireland, fist pumps for giving us Damien Rice, Van Morrison, Glen Hansard, U2, Lisa Hannigan, and C.S. Lewis. Excited to celebrate you today. Dear Spring, last night River and I stayed in the garden past sunset tilling our raised beds. Thank you for letting me fall asleep sore from something other than engorged breastaurants.  Dear Timothy James, yesterday's walk was especially magical, especially when this happened. Love you more than falling asleep in the sun while chewing on your stroller like a wib bone.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, y'all! How will you celebrate?

Chasing Cheerios is better than chasing waterfalls.

This sweet little girl makes us laugh, slows us down, grows us in selflessness,
and reminds us to be patient with each other.
Thankful for our church and for our friends who were present at Brave's dedication today.
We. Are. Blessed.

"All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children."

Every time I go back to Kansas City I always do two things :
Crank up this song & drive straight to Joe's for a Z-man and a Boulevard Wheat.
It's tradition.
Seeing this video made me miss it.
What do you love most about your hometown?

{Dear Papa}

Monday, March 09, 2015

Thank you for letting me stay in my jammer's all day when it snows.

For carrying me in my bath towel like a bag of groceries.

For catching me when I climb the stairs.

For singing Frank Sinatra when I take a bath.

And for taking me out for maple bacon donuts.
You're the best Papa.
I love you,

Sometimes putting away our flannel sheets makes Spring feel even closer.
Happy Sunday, brave ones.
