Well, we’re back in our home state of Texas! It’s been a good three weeks here, on our way PCSing (Permanent Change of Station) out to Peru. It was a taxing drive here from Monterey. I drove down to San Diego with the kids (8 hours of driving, plus stops) while John finished checking out, […]
So this is it. We’re down to our last few weeks here in California. It’s definitely bittersweet. Our family was really a family for the first time here. Olivia got her first real nursery after we moved here when she was 11 months old. We had truly been nomads for her little lifetime up until […]
Today marks 5 years of marriage with my handsome Marine. God has truly sustained us through the good and the bad. Two deployments, many more separations, two sweet children, 5+ homes lived in (long-term) and so many more adventures than I could count! I love you, John!

Cliff turned 10 months on December 14! This photo was taken at 4am – just before catching our plane that morning! Still such a happy little guy! He has 8 teeth, loves eating squash, and speed crawls like a pro. He’s also been taking steps and loves the encouragement he gets when he tries to […]
Yesterday I published a post on choosing less activities to make our family happier. If you haven’t read it yet you can do that here. As I’ve been pondering this “do less to get more” idea over the past year, I’ve also thought about how it applies to our family materially. We hope to teach […]
As the Christmas season comes to a close, I feel now is a perfect time to share what God has been teaching me this past year. It has been profound for me and yet the idea is very simple: choosing less. We live in an awesome town. There are so many things to do here. […]
