I created this space as a place for me to share these loves and passions of mine; what makes my heart beat and colors my days alive. My hope is that this blog is filled with the realness, the rawness, the beautiful, the heart stirring, gut aching, shakey nervousness, slow and pensive, wild and thriving thoughts and moments of LIFE.

Our New Brentwood Home Mattress

I feel like such an adult because we’ve never bought a real mattress or bed frame, but here we are and we are IN LOVE. 💃 We chose Brentwood Home’s Cedar mattbecauseacuse of what it was made out of. An average person spends 1/3 of their lives on their mattress, and I’ve recently learned how toxic […]

Our Marriage

Though neither of us would ever wish to walk through the pain that we’ve walked through for the last 3 months, we are so freaking thankful for the growth that has come from it. We’ve both learned so much about compassion. Ty has lead me so well in what it looks like to show grace […]

Take the photo

I’ve been going through the thousands of photos we took in the last year (still… because it’s so dang hard) and I’ve never been more thankful than I am for my husband. He took so many images. Of me, of the babe, of me + the babe, of all three of us. He didn’t care […]

A Trip To Tulsa

the hardest day of my life so far

One month ago today, I went about my day in a daze. I remember that I held the boy who made me a momma for his last two naps he’d take in our home, we took a million photos and videos of him, and played a new game we discovered where we’d poke our head […]

A Thing I Regret In Fostering

I’m finding that while walking through grief, it’s easy to start feeling guilt and regret. And while I don’t think either are healthy or helpful, there are some things that I regret that I want to be productive with. I never once thought of how little man’s mom must have been feeling after her children […]

A Place In My Photostream

There’s a place in my photo stream on my phone where he suddenly doesn’t appear any more. A photo of his little hand in mine, wearing his tiger romper from old navy, sitting in his car seat from the day we made the painful 20 minute drive to his new foster family’s home. As the […]
