Mornings, kids, plants, glories, gardening, dogs…. Oh the busy-ness of life!

Oh goodness! Where to even start! We MOVED! YAY! Last week we moved to our new house and it is a lovely house! We moved to be closer to Mark’s kids and also to have a very house of our own. The children LOVE the house!! So exciting! They had a lot of fun moving and packing while we were doing so the week they were with us. I had a lot of fun teaching them things and hanging out…

It’s a dangerous business.

It’s a dangerous business.

I am restless. The doors keep slamming. I know I am meant for more than this life I am living right now.

I realize now why a journal is so important to me. It helps me feel like I am talking/sharing with someone. Plus, I hope that someone can read my journal after the trip; you will get the nitty-gritty of…

FolkLife Festival, letters, duct tape, and stuff

FolkLife Festival, letters, duct tape, and stuff

On Saturday I headed into Seattle via bus for the Folklife Festival 🙂 So much fun! I wish we could have gone back Sunday and Monday, but we had other things we were doing instead. I did not get much from the festival itself in picture reference. I wish I had money to buy some the amazing skirts I found 🙂 However, I am sure I will find lots of amazing skirts in Liberia while I am there, so it’s…
