WELCOME TO THE BLOG
Home to the adventures of love.
Where stories so beautiful,
so unique are told then retold.
Where memories are paused.
Where you'll meet friends old and new.
So sit down, and stay a while...
A red headed light chaser,
story teller & life lover...

One morning, ordinary fields and what seemed like an ordinary morning lay beneath the dim sky. The earth was quiet. Serene. Until something extraordinary happened….. From the corners of the heavens light broke forth. And not just any light. Golden light. Slowly–yet persistently–something magical took place. Buckets of gold poured from the morning sky. Onto […]
There is something about Fall. Where golden yellow leaves from the trees cast their warmth on rolling hills of light. Hills where siblings run and laugh and roll with delight. Where golden pups sit next to their tiny humans. Where wheat grows high and trees grow higher. Where families take a break from routine and […]
You know those people you instantly fall in love with? That was me with Rachel + Zach. Quite literally the moment we met outside our cars I knew that we were going to be friends. And not just, “I’ll take your pictures” friends. Like friend friends. And if that wasn’t enough to persuade me, when […]
It’s the everyday moments that should be celebrated. The little legs. The running. The growth. The exploration. The falls. The getting back up again. The love two people have for one child. The unity. The togetherness. The laughter and tears. The moments that often get forgotten. Misplaced. Pull them out. Treasure them. Take a deep […]
The forecast predicted rain… But not on this–their day. This–their day, grasses stirred and danced. Aged trees joined in the rhythm of the music. This–their day, deep green vines stretched up eager to listen in. This–their day, rolling hills became the dance floor that two souls made one now swayed upon. This–their day, friends gathered […]
A thick blanket of gray clouds covered the sky. As if to wrap the sun away for the season and welcome Fall. The park was quiet–spotting other souls were few and far between. The chill in the air was matched by the clean scent that swept off the top of the waters, onto the dock […]
Brilliant arrays of color blossomed, flourished, grew across the backdrop of simple white. Winsome citrus hues. Grapefruit sliced down the middle revealing vibrant pinks and corrals. Small key limes and plump lemons. It was a summer day in a palette. Simple white plates on top folded white napkins on top of etched white chargers. Copper […]
“We’re adopting!” Words we didn’t dream would be written into our story, but oh sweet friends I sit here choked up and in awe of how our all knowing, all loving God wrote them before time for us! This place He’s brought us, this story He’s unfolded before us—-is so much more wonderful than any […]
I take a deep breath as I begin to retell what came next. After a year, the statistics showed that our chances of getting pregnant would drop. Together we had decided that it was at that point that we would begin testing. So when 2018 rolled around, we knew the next steps that lay ahead of […]
Our lives are stories. Pages, chapters, words written by the Greatest Penman Himself. The last two years of mine and Michael’s story we’ve held closely to our chest. We haven’t shared publicly the story of our season. It wasn’t because we didn’t want to, but we knew it wasn’t time. We had to grieve, had […]
