35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

The weather here has been quite beautiful.Around 5 degrees below average and breezy. The nights are coming faster.Twilight has its own soundtrack of crickets.

Emma is just so excited to start the 3rd grade!As she should be-she is a super student.
She counts down the days and gives me a report every morning.I think Noah would rather stay home and play video games though.

August always brings another time of year-my birthday!Followed by my baby brother's 2 days later. I'm turning 30 this year. I had been dreading it for years.But now I don't. I certainly don't feel as old as I had thought 30 felt. Of course I have almost 2 weeks to go so I might change my mind.

But really, I feel I'm reaching 30 very content and quite pleased with my life. Not at all where I thought I'd be.(Single,childless and career minded.)One of my very best girlfriends pointed out that we were supposed to have a place together. We would have a leopard print sofa and velvet purple drapes. I don't think either of us would go for such these days.Let alone our husbands.
