Missing Cody | Trials of Toddlerhood

Cody's on his second-ever weekend away, in Milaca with the grandparents... this is so sweet. He has been talking about it all week.

We miss that kid.  :) Here are some pictures because I've got my mind on him.

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 …

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!
