Puppy Time!


Have you ever seen two more adorable faces?  I just had to share them, they’re sitting here while I’m working on my latest project, and I’m so thankful to have these little cuties. It’s a little chilly outside, and so they’re cuddling.

Here are a few more to brighten your day:






Sock Inspiration


So, one of the things I thought would be a great idea-was knitting socks. Most of you know that I have crocheted (almost) my whole life, and don’t knit. AT ALL. But I decided to grab life by it’s knitted horns and do this. How hard is it? Knit, purl, knit, purl, right?

Well, let me just tell you. I’m stuck. Very Stuck. I don’t know for the life of me what a “gusset” is, or how to “turn a heel.” Where do you learn this? I picked up the easiest book in Michael’s for knitting-but apparently it doesn’t describe how to do some of the more basic stitches, which are not described in my beautifully illustrated Learn to Knit, Love to Knit book.

So I decided to read For Women Only instead. Brad and I got the set of two our first year of marriage, and when he read For Men Only, it inspired some great conversations between us about our expectations of marriage and our goals. I’m really glad he read it. But as for me, I decided to table it. I thought I already knew lots about men, being very familiar and growing up in church, we’d talked in depth about that sort of thing. But I’m so glad I took the time to read this. About half of it was the material I was familiarized with in church, the other was a whole new perspective in how men think about commitment, marriage, and love.  Well worth the read, I think. I would highly suggest the boxed set as a gift for the brides and grooms in the coming months!

Monument Valley

You know those games that just grab ahold of you until you finish them? Beautifully made games do that for me. I’ve found that the prettier a game is, the more each level intrigues me. I have found that with Monument Valley.


It is an MC Escher style game, you you constantly revolve your perspective to get to the next level. I have fallen in love with this beautiful piece of programming, and I’m sure you’ll find it’s just as easy for you to do.

Hello World!


Breaking News: I am now a blogger!

Fair Warning: There will be many a picture of my puppies, makeup, crafty endeavors, and general mishaps. Thank you for taking the time to come see me!

I have started by blog up again in hopes of letting my family and friends know what I am up to in my life, and to let everyone else I don’t know see who I am and what I do! It’s a little bit of a risk putting myself out there on the internet, and I’m happy for your support and love.

Thank you!
