• Baby!

    No, not us. Not yet. Maybe sometime. At least Josh will talk about it now. Well, he always would talk about it, but now talking about it doesn’t make him sick to his stomach. Anyway, congratulations to our friends Gary and Jennie Underwood on the birth of their daughter Allison Joy. Check her out here! They are the real reason behind today’s blog. We are very excited for them! We look forward to watching Allie grow, and watching Gary and Jennie grow as parents.

  • Birthdays

    Well, here I am, another year older. Today is my birthday, not technically until 10:34pm. But anyway, I’m 28. I can’t believe it. I have never been a big fan of birthdays, at least not my own. Not only because I am aging every year, but because I don’t want anyone making a fuss over me. I have spent the past few days explaining this to my husband. He doesn’t quite understand, but he knows I can be strange about somethings so he just accepts what I am saying. We spent last night trying to figure out how to divide tonight between our two families. We had already planned to…

  • The Pool

    I love going to the pool. I grew up going to the pool, Montrose Swim Club. It was the best pool! It was huge. Two Olympic sized lap pools connected by a diving well, complete with a water slide, a high dive, and two low dives. A giant U shape of fun, and memories. If I am ever asked the question, “What’s your favorite summer-time memory?” My answer is always, “The Pool!” I can remember going to the pool when my brother was a toddler. That wouldn’t seem like a big deal except for the fact that he’ll be 21 in November. So, toddler time for him was a long…

  • More Inspiration and…Rain

    What an adventure on Thursday night at Alive. After rain was predicted all day at home, and we had none, we traveled to Alive, thinking it would be dry. It wasn’t. They had rain earlier in the day. When we first arrived we got stuck in the mud, literally. Luckily were able to be freed fairly easily. The journey to find a seat was pretty sloshy, but we managed. Then the clouds started to roll in, we saw lightning in the distance. They made an announcement that a short storm front was moving through and it might be wise to take cover. We purchased dinner and headed for the car.…

  • Alive

    Almost a week since the first blog. Seems like a long time, but there are times when one is unispired. Then there are nights like last night. Josh and I attended theAlive Festival, and we were inspired. We were surrounded by hundreds of fellow Christians, all gathered in one place to worship the Lord and to learn more about how to truly live for Him. Leading worship was the David Crowder Band. It was awesome. Not just because Josh and I are huge fans, but because their sole purpose in creating music, is to bring glory to God. That is to be our sole purpose too. Or, should I say…
