Hello all! This week we are gearing up for... well not my birthday. Chucky's birthday party got rained out last weekend so we will be celebrating this Saturday instead but Sunday is my actual, factual birthday and I am turning the big 3-0. I kind of don't care but I kind of care A LOT and I can't pin down what my actual feelings are about this birthday. While I figure it all out I jotted down 30 helpful things I've learned in 30 years. And stay tuned til the end of the post because I've got a BIG surprise waiting for you...

If you had asked me 15 years ago what I thought about turning 30 one day I probably would've doubted that the day would ever come. Not because I was suicidal or thought I was going to die (I was … Continue reading Let God Be Your Light

If you have a heartbeat or a twitter account there’s a possibility you’ve already heard about One Beautiful Dream from the one and only Jennifer Fulwiler. The book is released on May 1st (unless you’re one of the lucky dogs who preordered it from Barnes and Noble, in which case you have it already) but … Continue reading Fancy Book Parties and One Beautiful Dream
Hello my friends, we meet again. You may have noticed I took a week off from the blog. Or maybe you didn't, I'm still not convinced anyone reads this. In any case, my week off wasn't by choice. Some things happened that made me a bit melancholy and I couldn't find the words to say... … Continue reading A Sinner Holds Unto Them
