A great song to slide into your weekend with.
This whole album is killer.

{Gratitude Lately}

Thursday, March 22, 2018


Lately I've been thankful for warmer weather and laying ladies.



For two good things coming together to make a great thing.


For new seasons.

For the friendship these two tiny humans have.



And for a 27 yr old Jeep that keeps kickin.
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
What have you been thankful for lately?

{Simple Victories}

Thursday, March 22, 2018


Today I fell in love with the liver and gallbladder as I studied for an anatomy exam.
 I also got to spend five minutes here this morning drinking hot (not cold or
forgotten in the microwave) coffee.
Here's to simple victories.

Dear Timothy James, you teach our daughter how to do lots of things ... set raccoon traps, build homemade zip lines, but the latest game played with your high school football laundry bag made me laugh. Here's to Bravdini being the next sensational escape artist. Dear Fly Box, I never would have anticipated using you to organize doll accessories but thanks for rescuing all things that had gone to live under our couch. Dear Bravey O'Loerke, your efforts to catch a leprechaun with rainbow stickers and Lucky Charms have been admirable. The joy you bring our family is better than a pot of gold! Dear Rib (who always gets two letters), next month we celebrate 13 years of marriage. I think this calls for a baker's dozen of Northlime donuts chased with a shot of Pappy's 13 Year Reserve. You dig?

Happy St. Patrick's Day Eve lads!
Enjoy some Shepherd's Pie and Guinness this weekend.

{Here's to Growth}

There was a time when I thought this pup would never stop eating our curtains,
learn to walk off-leash, or sleep through the night.
Here's to growth and how good things take time ...

Happy 3.14, y'all!

Dear Dad of the Year, every night you read the Children's Storybook Bible to Brave during bedtime. Last nights story was about the women who had been hemorrhaging for 12 years. When Brave asked you what a hemorrhage was you dove right in and told her all about periods and tampons. By the end of the conversation she was calling tampons "coupons" and asked if all girls bleed from their baginas. Welp, I think that went well. Want a beer? Dear Bravey Train, this morning you asked me if museums had unicorn bones. The fantasy land you live in grounds me in ways this adult often needs to be tethered. PS- Wanna take a trip to the Smithsonian and find out? Dear Picture Frame, you've been hanging on our dining room wall for over a year now showcasing your black and white stock photo of the Taj Mahal. I intended to replace you with a family picture months ago but you've become a running joke for our friends to ask about our love for India whenever they come over. Fist pumps for being as magical as a leg lamp at Christmas. Dear Timothy James (who always gets two letters), there are 168 hours in a week. Saturday we spent 8 of them catching more trees than we did trout but I'm convinced the laughter that followed your Eddie Vedder impersonations and crazy medical stories is what scared the fish. Thank you for always bringing your A-game of playfulness.

Happy Monday, y'all!

{Baby Steps}

Sunday, March 04, 2018


I'm continuing to learn the importance of holding space for joy while taking
baby steps towards doing the hard things.
It isn't easy to be stretched and uncomfortable but being back in school has been such a gift!
Also, can we talk about keeping house plants alive?
If you ever need one killed, I'm your girl.
Happy Sunday, y'all!

{Smell Ya Later February!}

Thursday, March 01, 2018


Goodbye February, hello March!
Can't think of a better way to kick off a new month than with two things that make me
wanna shimmy across our hardwoods.
