When life gives you...

A broken glass thermometer in a vat of beautiful, fresh strawberry make jelly :) it just makes a lot less than I thought the morning's efforts would produce.

Facing any disappointments today yourself?
I found this message to be very inspiring: Persevere to the end, because the conclusion is astounding.

Can you have a book review before you have written a book?
We got this review from Candice Watters based on our announcement. What I find most fascinating about this topic is that in reading the comments, there are the same threads in every conversation about women at work.

Do you what those are? What do you think about the phrase: 'women should be good investors and pursue a career until they marry'? Does that ring true to you? What problems do you see with this?

I'm not going to put my opinion out there yet, I just want to hear what you have to say.

Beautiful film. Beautiful truth

My friend, Carolyn, and her team, made this video that went viral over the last week. If you haven't seen it, give it your full attention. It is truly a beautiful film with beautiful truth.

Happy Mother's Day

5x7 Folded Card
View the entire collection of cards.


Whether thick or thin
Rich or poor,
Classy or trashy
Life is more fun when you
Color Me Beautiful

Thanks for giving me a wonderful upbringing and for teaching me through all these years that beauty is found when we live our life for Jesus and not for ourselves. (even though you bought me my first dress at Nordstroms and spoiled me forever :)

Love, Nora

P.s. How did your mother teach you to have style?

Grant. Big 2

Here is a photo review of my (not so little) man who will turn two on Sunday, May 13 in no particular order.
 Turning One
 First Beach Trip- 15 months. 
 First Bath
 First Camera Smile

 Crawling at six months.
Pulling to Standing
 Bathtime Crazies
 Love the blond duck fuzz hair.
 Playing in the mud- 13 months.
Every boy's favorite food: Spaghetti
 Big Boy Chucks which he could barely fit on his fat feet

  19 Months.
First Gingerbread House. 19 Months.

 Seven Months.
The famous potty shot.

Grant we love you so much for all your goofy smiles, your ball obsession, your tender heart towards your sister (you always share first), your big-ness and for just being a joy to see every morning, even if it is mostly before six in the morning.
