• Meet Riley Ann

    Wow it’s been a long time. I guess you could say having two kids in two years has kept me busy. But, it only seemed right that since I shared Adley’s birth story, I sure as heck better share Riley’s in case blogs are around when they’re teenagers and one of them feels slighted…. #secondkidproblems So, where to begin? In… [Continue Reading]

  • Welcome to the Family, Adley Mae

    Well, I blinked and somehow our little Adley Mae is already over a month old. Mama’s don’t joke when they say that it goes by fast. I’ve been taking this last month to soak in every sweet, little moment, figure out our new normal and live life at a much slower, but sweeter, pace. Now don’t get me wrong — pregnancy is… [Continue Reading]

That pregnant life though… But it’s hittin’ me. This baby is going to be here soon. I’ve had this weird feeling since the beginning that… [Continue Reading]

  • 2018: A Year to Simplify

    Hopes, dreams, wishes, plans, resolutions; whatever you call them, the start of the new year is always the sweetest time to write these desires of our hearts down. For me?

    With snow on the ground & the leaves all long gone, it seems like we’ve made the abrupt transition to winter here in the upper Midwest.

Seize the Adventure

Carpe Diem is quite possibly one of the most overused phrases. It rings in our heads as more than just a life motto written in a lost language, but as a constant reminder to fully embrace each and every moment and to “seize the day.” “20,000 miles, 19 states, 4 cities, 3 time zones & I finally learned what adventure is…

10 Lessons Learned from North Dakota

“Who moves to North Dakota?!” My dad has asked me this question probably 10 times over the last month and a half that I’ve called this place home. Even locals give me a questionable glance and a furrowed brow when I tell them I moved here from California. I then get the “Wait, so have you ever experienced winter?” “Do…

The thing they forget to tell you about adventures…

Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned. Try and try as we may…we pray, we plan, we prepare, but still; our dreams fade, the road gets bumpy, and we end up in a mess on the floor crying over cookie butter ice cream. Luckily, that last part hasn’t quite happened yet, but I feel like it’s not too far off. The…

My Journey

I still can’t believe I’m here…in Montana. A place that I specifically told myself several years ago that I would NEVER live in, ever…under any circumstances. But, God changed my mind, He changed my heart & He changed all of my plans. The choice to move here was the biggest leap of faith I have ever taken in my whole 25 years of…

MONTANA!

Nearly 4,000 miles, 13 states & 7 days later….we’ve made it to Montana. I have been here barely over a week and I’ve already fallen in love with the magnificent beauty that I wake up to each morning. Whether it’s the bright morning sun that peaks through my curtains in the early morning hours, the gentle pitter-patter of rain drops…
