This post is brought to you by the wedding of these two beautiful people: Since I have a few other things going on today, I’ll just be leaving you with this fantastic song (check out the whole album) by Needtobreathe, who have sang me through many a faith crisis. This new album is brilliant, and […]

We got to teach kindergarten through sixth grade to 13 sweet and excitable children, cuddle babies and read stories and cook and clean […]

This week’s post is brought to you by Blue Bell’s Spiced Pumpkin Pecan ice cream. Because when you find this puppy in Wal-Mart in Mexico (even when it says it’s a “Holiday Favorite” and it’s now March) you jump right on that. Listening: – I’ve been in a Mumford mood lately. And I’ve been listening […]

That's me and an agave bush in the town of Tequila yesterday! I hear there are snowstorms hitting the USA again this week. Clearly you all should move to Mexico with me.

Good To Me

Last year I lived in a little duplex in South Nashville with a beautiful roommate and a cuddly fat cat. I started to learn how to be a grown-up in that house (although today I told a third grader that one of the best things about being a grown-up is sometimes having popcorn and ice […]

Feliz Navidad Indeed.

This week’s recommendations are brought to you by Sleepytime tea from my Feliz Navidad mug. There are not many better things in life. Listening: – As Sure As the Sun by Ellie Holcomb. I love Ellie’s voice and her thoughts and her faith and the scripture that is woven into every song. You should buy this album […]
