Thanks and Linking up

 I have to start off by telling y'all how deeply and completely grateful I have been for all of your comments, emails, notes, real-life-hugs, and phone calls and texts you sent after my post about our marriage being a little (ok a lot) hard lately. The only reason I am brave enough to be vulnerable is because you guys are all so amazing and loving and encouraging. Every one of you means so much to me, and I am so grateful for all your love and kindness. I know that I probably havent sent every one of you the response you deserve, so just know that Adam and I have both read everything you've sent us, and we are grateful.

For now, a few quick pictures from our weekend, and a few links from my reader to inspire and encourage YOU this week.
- This guest post on DL Mayfield's War Photographer series from Sarah Bessey. I was, at first, a little confused by this whole series because I keep expecting to see, you know, pictures from war. But it turns out that the whole thing is much deeper and more beautiful than that. You should for sure go read it. Also, I kind of love Sarah Bessey's writing. AND she's Canadian, which is bonus points for her.
- I love this reminder by Timothy Willard to turn off every once in a while. Or more than that.

- When flourishing is possible and we are on our way at a Deeper Story.

- How to Keep our Babies Safe at Momastery. Additionally, I am currently reading Glennon's book Carry on Warrior. And I love it. I'm apparently a big fan of the blogs-turned-into-books a la Big Mama and Momastery, and soon (yay!) Boo Mama.
- Also, I love The Mindy Project, and I love this post (again from DL Mayfield) on just a few of the reasons why. 

What about you: have you read any posts you loved lately, or books you couldn't put down? Do share!!


  1. Yes, I read The Story of Beautiful Girl by Rachel Simon and I STILL can't stop thinking about it.

    Have I read any good blog posts? I loved a recent post by Kasey Height. She is a girl that lives in Seattle I think. Or maybe Oregon. Someplace very beautiful. She is a good Mama and a great person. Her pictures are fantastic. Humble. Different. Here is a link to her blog: http://www.kaseyheight.com/

    I love this circle project that my friend Amy Grace does: http://www.abeautifullifephoto.com/blog/2013/04/15/letters-to-my-son-april/ She is a fantastic writer.

    I can't think of anything else, but if I do, I will come back to share.

    1. :-) yay! thanks for the suggestions, going to check them out now!!

  2. I'm reading Carry On, Warrior too and I swear she lives in my closet and is writing my story. Almost scary! Loving it though!

  3. 1. Silas screamed "go back!" after I scrolled down past that wagon pic of C. So I went back up and he said, "Aw! Is that me?" I said "Uh, does it look like you?" "Yeah. It does." Soooooooooo............???

    2. Mindy Project. OMW. I die. We signed up for a free week of Hulu+ so we could watch all of the first season that we missed. Morgan. Help me.

    1. I know we emailed regarding this comment; however I just saw it again today and can't even stand how adorable Silas is. They are obviously twins, him and Caden :-)


I LOVE hearing from you. Thank-you for reading and interacting, and being the best!
