  • 20 hours of just us. We didn’t talk about our five kids or even pick up our phones to check on them. Date nights are few and far between for us, and we haven’t gone away overnight together in 10 years but here’s to making these “just us” moments a priority in 2020.

  • I often hear ‘It’s time for you to settle down now’ as if this part of my life is merely an interruption of “the real thing.” For a second, I believe it — shame starts to creep in.

Then, I remember that I’ve lived more fully in the last three years than I had in my entire life.

And I carry on. (The Bolivian Altiplano, July 2018)

  • I can’t help but reflect and feel so grateful for all the growth and opportunities, new friendships, and happiness this last year has given for me. It’s going to be hard to top, but I have a feeling TWENTY SEVEN is going to be the best year yet! ✨

  • i won’t regret saying yes... ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
to the mornings where we crawl back into bed a half past eight and i sandwich myself between them while i nurse one down for a nap and the other snuggles close watching a movie on her iPad. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
or saying yes to picnics in the living room because it’s ‘more cozy’ than sitting at the table. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
or saying yes to the stuffed toy she takes with her everywhere she goes, hardly ever leaving her side because “i love it so much!”⠀⠀
⠀⠀
or saying yes to her request “just one more book?” at bedtime even though it’s time to shut off the lights. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
or saying yes to my six year old who asked to take our picture because “you guys look so cute!” ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
there’s so much magic, big and small, found in one tiny word.

  • Long-hour travels could bring boredom or worse, frustration to the passengers, but that should not make one miss the beauty being shown by life's window -- so intricate, so magical. 😊

  • planning —dreaming— waiting. 
I think we have bought 1 book for our future kiddos, but we have been gifted an entire box full! From different friends, family members, social workers, you name it. Books have been really special to us during this process. I dream about the days we get to sit and read them together. 
This baby board book was a special gift from the kind friends at @artifactuprising ! Thank you for this giveaway, and for a book that we can take with us to Kyrgyzstan to show our kiddos what coming home will look like! We packed it full of pictures of our house, neighborhood, ourselves, lil’ Rue and so much more. 
COME ON TRAVEL DATES. (!!!)

  • I’ve been trying to write this post for weeks. But every time I get started, I start deep diving into thinking about who I want to be as a person and the words just don’t flow on to the paper as easily as I’d like.

When my time comes to leave this world, I don’t want my obituary to say, “she was busy.” I don’t want to be remembered for how I dominated a to do list. One thing I began to hear on my heart over the last couple years is the need to stop the glorification of busy. As a enneagram 3, it’s my nature to be an achiever but even that needs to have it’s limits to protect my mental health and stress levels.

Here’s the thing: I have one life and I want to live it well.

Yet, I struggle because when someone asks me how I’ve been, the first thing out of my mouth is “busy.” When I think about the woman I am at 80, busy is not the first thing that comes to mind.

So this year, instead of adding to my to do list, I’m checking in with my to be list. With every thing I do, I’m asking myself: Does this support the life I’m trying to create, the person I’m trying to be? And if not, I need to seriously consider it before saying yes.

I aspire to be:
Strong
Kind
Creative
Joyful
Adventurous
Patient
Prayerful
Brave
Disciplined

So tell me, what’s on your To Be list? ✨

  • Shot this 10 years ago with my brother in law @ramblin.farm.dallas - I wanted to try to shoot an idea I had. Looking back I see how easy this is now days but I also remember how I had to really plan it out and I didn’t feel like I was that great of a photographer. Haha. Found this pic and it’s a good reminder of the early days. Remember where you started. Remember why you started. Hope you guys have a solid weekend 🤙🏻

  • The hubs had to fly up to Seattle unexpectedly yesterday, so it’s just been me and these 3 lovely ladies for the last 2 days. I picked them up from school today and told them we could do whatever they wanted and the consensus was ice cream. So we headed out to Del Mar and hit up @shakeshack immediately followed by @saltandstraw. I think we’re good on ice cream for a while. Although Cleo asked me what was for dessert when we got home so maybe it’s just me who understands what diabetes is 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • Someday these are going to be big hairy stinky teenager feet... and the thought of it makes my heart ache. I love love love baby feet. I love tickling them, smelling them, munching on them, (yep I’m a weirdo). And I’ll soak in every last wrinkly chubby toesy as much as much as possible while he’s little... because there’s definitely a definitive age cut off.

  • Nora, in all of her sweet tininess.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We have quite a few newborn sessions scheduled in these coming months, and can think of few things more refreshing in the quiet days of winter than greeting new life. Those first weeks together are so sacred–when everything is fresh and maybe a little bit uncertain but you've got one another so it's all worth it. Preserving those moments together—how it feels when it's just the two of you is exactly what we're here for.

  • Feeling so thankful for this little life today. I already love being your mama, lil nugg. My fav “symptom” of pregnancy so far has been my insane need to clean/organize. Seriously, this is the most organized & clean our house has ever been and I can’t wait to start planning the nursery! I’m pretty sure @max.mollaun loves this aspect of pregnancy, too. Lol! GAH, thank you Lord for this amazing blessing.
