12 Years! Full of Adventure…Or Maybe Just Craziness…

I think if I had been visited by my future self 12 years ago and been told that I’d be living 5 minutes from where I grew up, working in Longmont where I spent a good portion of my childhood, working as an ER doctor, mom to 5 kids, I was a trail runner and…

Paxton’s 8th Package

With each one of these I hope I’m closer to it being the last one. I love seeing his photos each month, but it is hard seeing him get bigger and bigger and missing that each day. Hopefully not much longer. It is beginning to cool off in Seoul and turn to fall. I have…

Goodbye Little Car

Little silver car, It has been a good journey. You have been with me since 2007. I drove you to my first shift as a MD my intern year, and I can’t even begin to estimate the numbers of shifts I have driven you to and from in the past 10 years. You have probably…

Homeschool Year #3!

I still thinking it is amazing that if you had told me 4 years ago that we would be a homeschool family I would have totally laughed and not believed you at all. And yet, here we are starting our 3rd year and loving it. And most of my fears (about us being weird and…

Paxton’s 1st & 2nd Packages

And I’m back to sending love across an ocean via zip lock baggies. At least they are gallon sized. And I’ve done this before so I’ve got a few things figured out this go around. Like stocking up on clothes when they are off season in the size that he’ll be next year at that…

For The Love….

I have had the unique opportunity (along with 495 other women and 4 guys) to get to read and study and explore Jen Hatmaker’s new book, For The Love, as part of the official launch team. I filled out the application on a whim while making lunch one day for the boys and never thought…

And Sometimes There Are No Words

I’ve seen a lot. Granted I’m not even half way through my 30s yet, but being in the ER I’ve met people from literally all walks of life and everyone in between. Different hopes, different dreams, different hurts, different pains. From the newborns to the 104 year olds (I think that’s my oldest…may have seen…

Happy 3rd Birthday Caedmon Isaiah!

3 years ago today Caedmon Isaiah entered the world. I am so blessed to be his mommy, his spunky attitude, his hugs, his smiles, his bright blue eyes. So thankful for the last 3 years and looking forward to a lifetime of memories with this little guy! Happy Birthday, mommy loves you!

So I’m Married to a Hobbit

I am, it’s true. Most people may not recognize it, (being 6 foot tall throws some people off), but Clint is actually a Hobbit in disguise. His dream life would be to live in a hole in the ground, spend his time reading and minding his own business and tilling the ground. I actually had…

River Walk

As you may recall we had a huge flood last fall. A number of people in our area lost their homes and farms and livelihoods. We were very lucky and didn’t have any damage, but we have been desperately missing the trail system that goes behind our house. We heard last week that enough of…

12 Years After Limp Broccoli and Giggling Roommates

It was 12 years ago tonight that I had my first date with the guy that I would one day say “I do” to. (and first kiss, but that’s jumping too far ahead). I’m sure if there was a ranking of most “romantic” dates ever, ours definitely would have topped it. I mean, come on,…
