Dr. Seuss once said, “You never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” What stunning and poignant words. I’m trying desperately to catch each one, and hold on to it just long enough for an imprint to stay behind. To grasp all of the beautiful and wretched like my favorite old polaroids which always remain in my head, and never fade with the passing of time. There’s been so much life swirling inside this living of mine, and all I’ve been begging of myself is to write it down and remember. For too long. So here goes!

Some long sentiments, some short. Some light, some dark. Some weightless as a feather and some heavy as a wrecking ball. But I’d like to preserve it all in this form. And look back on it when I need to, when I want to. To show my babies. And tell a few stories. I hope you will find a little something here to stir up your head and heart, with a splash of solace and a dollop of joy on the side...

Thank you for being here!

I can’t breathe over a baby in a bonnet and I’m too tired to post anything else! We never made it around to the family picture in all of the Easter flurry so one day after school this week I will force everyone to get dressed again and pose in front of the azaleas. They will be very upset with me! But it must happen for the Easter 2024 photo of course. Arlo is 6 therefore it is the last year I will smock him with a lace border 🤣 He was fine at first then started crying “I look like a girl” the second the church service started so I had to remove him and relieve him from the white outfit that I LOVE. I have now accepted that it was my last Sunday smock on him ever, ever 😥 As soon as we get to the azaleas for this weeks after school “let’s pretend it’s Easter photo shoot” I will post a picture of this lovely outfit! For now-how precious is this, I hope you have found deep peace, comfort and joy in the Resurrection. Happy Easter!🐣
Sending so much LOVE to each and every one of you this Valentine’s from Miss Georgia Grace ❤️ Best photo ever by the incredible @rachaelboutwell ✨
MAGIC-Ok where do I begin? Did y’all see this absolutely stunning performance?! First of all, it was one of the most lovely and serene family moments we’ve EVER had. The kind I will remember when I’m in my sunset years- well rested, alone on the couch, in the blistering silence, and I will think about the minutes I would give anything to live over and over again. Watching this together as a family. Music is healing-I wouldn’t say we are used to many quiet moments with these 4 littles, but they all went into complete silence when @tracychapmanonline started her brilliant playing, and continued motionless until the last note. That never happens, it just doesn’t. Our house can be summed up as pure chaos in this season. Georgia Grace sat plump in my lap, in literal stillness-completely mesmerized by the sheer simplicity and beauty of the genius that is “Fast Car”. The same way that I was so entranced by this song back in 1988. I would legit pray for it to come on the radio again. When they aired the story tonight, and @lukecombs was talking about driving around in his dads truck as a little boy, constantly listening to that song, and then we all got to watch him sing it with her on stage-I was goosebumped head to toe. And @colemantime, did I see tears falling when you were telling the kids how this is what dreams are made of? I know that’s a yes! It’s cool, real men cry for the greatest songs of all time, the kinds that bring all ages and generations together to watch and listen. It was beautiful, one of the greatest Grammy moments there have ever been. Did y’all love it?!?! Was it everything pure and beautiful and timeless and nostalgic and perfect? Good lord I sure do think so. I sure do. These are the real music moments-the ones that bring our hearts and minds back to their most settled places, the ones that form a halo over division and help us all to remember that we are all in this together. There is more connective tissue between us than we realize, thank God for these glorious reminders in the form of a song…
Mornin’ time…
