Happy Anniversary! It has been 3 WONDERFUL years!

Tim and I are SO grateful that we have been blessed with a beautiful life. We are strong and healthy. We have a fun dog, and great son. We have a home, cars, free time, jobs, food, good health, and a happy, healthy, joy-filled marriage! Our life has definitely changed since Cody came into it, but we love it still. As different as things are for us now, we are still able to find time together--albeit too short most days-- to love on one another, and share our thankfulness to GOD for giving us each other.

We couldn't have loved our wedding day any more! It was PERFECT. Beautiful, and windy, on the shore of Lake Superior in Two Harbors, MN... and--it was FALL! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE  (ps, thanks Megan Harten for the AWESOME wedding photos! Hi Megs!)

Last week, on the 21st, we celebrated our three year wedding annivesary! WOW. AWESOME. WOOHOO. That evening, we had a delicious steak dinner at home, and just caught up on life. We talked and laughed and played with Cody. It was so nice! Then, on Saturday, the whole family: Me, Tim, Codeman, and Maggie hopped in the "band" (the van) and went to Vail. We found a sweet park that is dog-friendly for no-leash. It was the perfect weather day. Sunny, colorful, and FALLish. There is a creek, trails, benches, sweet rocks, and a playground there. We sat around, soaking up our last Colorado Fall :( and then got some noodles at Hunan-Ya's asian noodle place. It was just an okay meal. Nothing to brag about. Then, we tried to go to Piney Lake, but the road was closed for Logging Operations. So after a pretty drive in the mountains, we just went back to Steven's park, and lounged some more.








The Drive home wasn't bad, and we got Chili's take out :) Cody and Maggie both did great the whole day! It gave Tim and I a chance to just be dorky together, listening to country music in the car. Crankin out the tunes... we laughed AT each other when we'd be singing, or Tim was making fun of the fact (always) that I never know what songs are about, even if I know all the words. Oh, and I never know who sings them or what they are called. I'm ridiculously good at trying to tell him about a song I "like" then he tells me it is about a man killing his wife and getting sent to prison, and asks me why I like it. Or that the singer is a totally bad example for real life, so I shouldn't like one of their songs. Ooops. I'm naive to music, okay!?

Having fun when you're not having fun.

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
