We Made It To Boston!

We arrived in Boston and spent the 4th of July roaming the city and trying to hold on to the last bit of normalcy for awhile.  Zane wasn’t having the best time.  His whole schedule has been thrown off, he had to take two plane rides (the first since leaving Bulgaria, which can bring up […]

Spit Fistula | Our Adoption Journey

Just a heads up– if you’re a really squirmy type and can’t handle anything medical, then you’ll want to skip this.  It’s all pretty mild stuff, but it shows a feeding tube and some weird medical things. No blood, and nothing gory, though. Four and a half months ago we arrived at Zane’s orphanage on a cold day, […]

That Time I Refused to Remain Helpless

I feel like I’m supposed to say that I started doing photography because of these munchkins… because I wanted more time with them and away from the corporate world. But the truth is, they weren’t even on my radar 7 years ago when I bought my first DSLR. My niece, Kyah, has passed away the […]

You’re Four Today.

I don’t know what I was doing four year ago today… the day you were born. I don’t know if there’s a woman… a family… on the other side of the world mourning you today. There’s a lot I don’t know.   As I looked through pictures to share, I cried.  I’ve missed a lot […]

Uncomfortable.

Our son, Zane, has a feeding tube.  I’ve never been shy about feeding him wherever we are. I liken it to breastfeeding or bottle feeding a baby.  It’s how my kid eats, and it’s part of life.  Is it a little uncomfortable?  Sometimes!  But our lives are uncomfortable, and it’s just our new normal. In restaurants, […]

My Podcast Obsession

Two years ago Allison Maxwell suggested a little podcast to me.  You might have heard of it… Serial.  It sounded fascinating, but… I had no idea how to listen to a podcast!  I’m not even kidding! So I called my tech guy (okay, my husband Josh) and asked him how I go about listening to a […]

Moms, It’s Okay | Personal

Hey moms, I’m going to talk to you specifically for a minute.  It’s on my mind right now because I just lost my junk on my family.  You know the drill… you keep it all inside, try to eat your feelings with chocolate (or working out if you’re one of those awesome moms— I’m not!), […]

When Facing Huge Obstacles | Personal

Sometimes I shy away from blogging about things because I feel like I’m not qualified enough to talk about the subject. I don’t want to give tips on running a successful business because I only have experience from my own life. Marketing is the same—I know what has worked for us, but that doesn’t mean […]

The Day I Met You | Personal

The day I met you I had no idea what the future held.  I didn’t know you would be my best friend for life or that God would send us on the best adventures together.  I had no idea that we would struggle so much financially in the first few years of our marriage, or […]

How We Took Two Months Off Work | Personal + Business

We recently adopted our 3 year old son, Zane, from Eastern Europe.  We’ve had him home for two months now.  He has esophageal atresia, which means his esophagus doesn’t connect to his stomach (he’ll have surgery to correct that) and is on a feeding tube.  Our daughter, Hazel, is 5 years old. ——– We did it.  We […]
