{Happy 4th Bravey Train!}

Wednesday, April 25, 2018











And just like that she's 4. Brave was the daughter I was most afraid to have but who has taught me more about selfless love, true courage, and the color pink than I ever could have imagined.
I knew from the moment we took our first walk that I was committed to being a safe place for her to land.
That I would carry her gently as the Lord has carried me.
She is curious, adventurous, and a lover of nature's tiny treasures.
She is determined a thoughtful giver of gifts, and a strong finisher.
She is Brave.
Happy Birthday sweet girl!

Dear Timothy James, your recent dude trip to fish, play, and rest not only had me belly jelly but excited every time my phone would blow up with trout pics. Ps- if I grow a beard can I come next time? Dear BBRAAPE, you’re getting so close. Don’t give up. Dear Ben Howard, can’t wait for your new album. Here’s to June 1st and to more of your music being tied to some of my favorite memories. Dear Tim PA-C, after nursing school orientation I left more motivated than ever to finish my last pre-req so we can take some time off before my program starts in July. Here’s to strong finishes and a family vacation up the coast with some of our favorite friends!

Happy Tuesday y’all.
(or Tootday as Bravey calls it)

Listen. Repeat. Listen. Repeat.

{Faithfulness}

Friday, April 06, 2018


Here's to being faithful with the hard things like tackling neuro and toddlers who
want cuddles and animal crackers at 3am.
I've learned there is rest that can still be found in the midst of motion, but
I'm thankful we have some weekend fishing adventures ahead of us.
Where are you traveling this spring?

{A Reason to Celebrate}

Thursday, April 05, 2018


Tonight we celebrate 4 classes down, 1 to go.
We're in the homestretch of my nursing pre-reqs!
Couldn't do it without the support and encouragement from this guy.
Love you more than all things endocrine, sweet Tim.

{Sweet Support}

Wednesday, April 04, 2018


Going back to school while being a wife, mama, and friend has been challenging,
but I've learned a good support system is everything.
There is simply nothing better than a surprise visit from your favorite humans when you've been studying Anatomy & Physiology for six hours a day for almost two weeks.
Tim and Bravey, I love you more than your medial epicondyle bones and buccinator muscles!

{Happy Easter!}

Monday, April 02, 2018



We were grateful to have sweet framily to celebrate our favorite holiday with.
The kiddos burned about a thousand calories running around hunting for eggs.
Brave was disappointed to find out the Easter Bunny was a boy but all peace was restored to humanity when she learned the Tooth Fairy was a girl.
How was your Easter celebration?
He has risen indeed!

{An Easter Tradition}

Sunday, April 01, 2018


No, we aren't that family that keeps their Christmas tree up for months,
but we do save ours for a special tradition.
This has helped us remember the correlation between Jesus birth at Christmas
to his death and resurrection at Easter.
He. Has. Risen.
