Walking in the Way

Come, sweetheart… come for a walk with your mama. It was not long ago that I carried you every time I went walking, but then you grew a bit and began to stretch your legs. Another little one came along then, and I carried him in my arms while holding your hand tightly in my […]

Photo Challenge, Week Ten

Week Ten: Portrait, Environment Here is my little girl… in her child’s-version of her someday-environment! I love it. Little future homemaker. Barefoot, in a vintage dress, making cupcakes & tea. And then, just for fun, I used a post-process to give it an illustrated effect!

Marshmallow Munchkins

Isn’t there something just completely, inexplicably wonderful about the way children look like fairytale characters when they play in snow mounds, bundled up like the softest of marshmallows?!    I love these marshmallow munchkins.

one little reflection

We see ourselves in our children better than in any mirror. ~Lisa-Jo Baker, Surprised By Motherhood, p187~   I believe God loves us too much to leave us flailing in our self-centered universes, so He delivers these tiny reflections of ourselves into our homes with earthquake effectiveness. ~Lisa-Jo Baker, Surprised By Motherhood, p187~

from Great Grandma

Published by under Evangeline Joy

Evangeline Joy was ecstatic to receive mail, and plopped herself right down in a rocking chair to read her card from Great Grandma and Great Grandpa. She and I will have fun birthday shopping using her birthday money too.
