Things have been quiet around here lately. Facebook keeps reminding me of the last two years of Write 31 Days in which I wrote actual words on most of the days of October. But the last several months haven’t been especially bloggable. My immediate family is fine. But outside of that, all kinds of things […]

This is kind of an atypical blog post for me. Basically I have a funny story to tell that is a little too involved for a facebook post. There’s no useful, encouraging bit, no metapicture… just a funny story from the inside of my funny marriage.
…a story that concluded (but mostly began) beautifully twelve years ago today.
I’m going to tell you a story today. Another one. Or maybe a few. I don’t tell you my stories because I think my life is earth-shattering and fascinating to you. I tell you my stories because… they’re all I have. I learn from them. And I hope they bring you hope or encouragement, too.

But… it’s been something I’ve been specifically convicted to share since the beginning of this process (when I was being an immature brat, but before I […]
So… ten years ago, my husband and I got married. Not gonna lie, I feel a little old. Somehow this marker was reserved in my head for a crowd older than I thought I was. Definitely 30’s. (Wait…) The cousins who were the ring bearers and flower girl? High school and college. College. My baby […]
Aw, look! Tiny toons version of us! So… Valentine’s day is about here.I know. I’m not much for the holiday, either. I thought of it as Singles Awareness Day all through high school and college, because, seriously? How much does it suck to be in a public high school on Valentine’s Day when you don’t […]
