Welcome, friend! Relax & rest awhile, if you please. I'm an ordinary girl, a follower of Christ, mama to Gabriel, & wife to Evan. Here in this little space of the online world, I share all manner of bookish things, including full content reviews, writerly snippets, encouragement for everyday life, and a whole collection of names & their meanings.

welcome to my blog

A + A Friday!

  • When someone greets you on your lunch break right after you took a bite, and an awkward silence ensues while you chew hurriedly with a loopy grin to finally say, "I'm good, how are you?"
  • When you overhear a sister talking to the cat in a Gollum voice: "Is it sweet?  Is it cuddly?"  O_o
  • Using four sticky papers from the sticky roller to delintify and de-fur your black coat.
  • Just thinking about the purpose of shedding eyebrow hair, and wondering if that didn't happen, if one's eyebrows would get bushier and bushier. . .
  • Oh, the accuracy!
  • When a sister holds a teddy bear hostage during a brief Nerf war. . . Nothing's really fair in love and war.
  • Walking to your bed from the closet and a sister is standing in the doorway; you flinch because you think she's gonna shoot you or throw the giant penguin.
  • On your way to Cleveland with your sisters following behind in their car for a shopping trip before work.  A red truck passes and you wave before you realize that's not your brother coming home from school; turns out your sisters waved to the poor guy, too! 
  • Getting ready for bed and all of a sudden you blurt out: "Whaaaa--? That's a GOOGLY EYE!" (because there was a googly eye lying randomly near the trash can.

  • That feeling when you finally saved up enough green paper to buy that expensive something you really want: in this case, a new CAMERA!!
  • The sweet glory of a Little Debbie Fudge Round.
  • Trying to find the perfect text tone and going through tons of funny ones.  That's when the nerd kinda comes out.  xD  I currently have the Kimmunicator beep as my text tone!!
  • Receiving my autographed copy of Anon, Sir, Anon!! (by Rachel Heffington)
  • Putting in a request for a new blog design (AGAIN).  [Yes, yes.  I know, this one is cute, but I am having technical problems and I think it involves the template. . . So, I've asked Brittney, from Daughter of the King blog, to make me a new template! And I'm getting so excited!]
  • Thanks to my good friend, Amanda, I'm officially a Kombucha girl.  Here's a great article on the benefits of Kombucha tea. 
  • Remember Calvin & Hobbes (mentioned last A + A)?

  • "I am sure that God keeps no one waiting unless He sees that it is good for him to wait." C.S. Lewis 
  • This:


Thanks for reading!

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
