A blessed Sabbath to you. Ah, I just love this time. The house is (mostly) clean, and I'm cuddling with my one-year-old. At the moment, I feel at peace. But I don't always feel this way. The world is bleak today, ladies. In my home, there are meltdowns and tantrums sometimes. Things definitely don't always … Continue reading Sabbath Thoughts || Finding Peace
I've checked my phone about one million times this past week. We closed on our cabin on Friday afternoon. There was one form left to be signed by the buyer (who wasn't there, since the sale was a 1031 exchange), so our funds would likely be delivered the next week. On Monday morning I started … Continue reading We Paid Off the House!
The year has just flown by to me. How is it even possible that it is already October? Our days are full to the brim, and I'm so grateful to be my children's teacher. Homeschooling takes up a good bit of our mornings, and sometimes extends into the afternoon, too. I like to get started … Continue reading Homeschool Days || October 2021
Today, I'm wearing a cotton polka dotted dress which is so very comfortable. In fact, my closet is filled with skirts and dresses. I've been wearing them for ten years. It feels very normal in our home for me to dress this way. I love it. While I do have some Biblical reasons for doing … Continue reading Feminine Modesty Combats the Degradation of Our Culture
We closed on our cabin on Friday. It was pretty much the most seamless real estate transaction of all time. Ah, I am so excited to become 100% debt free again, possibly today! We also will be able to work on some much needed projects around here. This home has been lovely, but at the … Continue reading Home Improvements on the Horizon
My little girls have been waiting for this day for a long time! While I've been burned out from leaving our home so much this week, seeing their faces light up at the pumpkin patch and Babyland General Hospital was worth it! I thought I'd write a Modest Monday post since I haven't in awhile. … Continue reading Modest Monday || Outing with My Girls
Once upon a time, I craved leaving my home. Every day, I wanted to leave. This is something I'm not proud of. I didn't understand God's plan for me to be a keeper at home. I couldn't keep my home well if I was never there! Lately, I've realized that if I have too many … Continue reading Slow Living in Today’s World
Ah, how I love October! The temperature is finally cooling off, and the outdoor world is simply glorious! I'm looking forward to mountain drives to take in lots of beautiful fall leaves soon! On this October morning, I woke up to my husband slipping out of our room to begin his workday at our dining … Continue reading A Homemaker’s Morning || October 6, 2021
His alarm sounded at 5:30 am this morning. My husband had to arrive at the parking lot near his office by 6:30. A table should be waiting for him outside, containing a test and face shield. No one else will be there. That's the point. Unvaccinated, he has been deemed too much of a health … Continue reading How Can I Support My Husband Through This?
Good morning ladies, and a happy Sabbath to you! It looks like today will be absolutely lovely in our neck of the woods. How good the Father has been to us! I felt led to share a bit of an update with y'all regarding our cabin. It has been an interesting journey in which God … Continue reading We are Selling Our Cabin
