"life is a culmination of small moments, making up an incredible story"

  The answer to the question “How to blog about all the different aspects of my life, in a clean and strategic way.” appears to be not at all. Obviously, the only way I can do anything is perfectly, or not at all.  The irony is that in guiding our children, our team and our […]

Justin and Breanna : A Sparrow Hill Engagement Session

June 11, 2021

03 Engagement

Perhaps the most impactful lesson the pandemic has taught me has been about friendships.   I have this vivid memory. I was in 6th or 7th grade, and we had just moved to a new town. I was excited to have been making a lot of new friends at school and was chattering about it […]

Monday Minute : Friendships

May 3, 2021

Real Talk

What a week. Have you seen that tik tok? The one that says “whoo! what a week!” then someone else responds with “It’s Tuesday…”  That’s totally how I felt this week.  (side bar: should I be admitting how much time I spend on tik tok on the blog? Who knows.)   We got back at […]

They say to not ever start your blog post with about how it’s been a long time since you blogged last, but I feel like it’s worth noting that I last blogged in March of 2020. Now we’re here in November of 2020, and it seems like March is a world away. Tomorrow will be […]

I’m forcing myself to just write. How to start with the words is always the most difficult part, because it sets the tone for what I want to say in this blog post. I’m not sure yet what I want to say, so… maybe I need a format or something. It’s interesting being an adult. […]

Monday Minute : Phase Yellow.

This week has been a roller coaster. Some days I think we’re killing it, have it down and may even be thriving. Then other days I’m chugging coffee and yelling at the dogs before 8am and my patience is just gone and I want to quit before we’ve even started the day. Some ways we’re […]

Monday Minute : Stay at home…still.

It’s Wednesday morning ( just checked… afternoon) when I’m finally sitting down to write this. I’ve struggled for months and months about where to blog my Monday minutes, and I have absolutely used that as an excuse to not do it at all. Last week I watched a you tube video from a photographer I […]

Stay at home… Monday Minute

You’re not supposed to start a blog post talking about how long it’s been since you blogged before. Supposedly, no one notices that when scrolling through your blog posts. I think it’s probably OK for me to mention that it’s been a long time since I jumped in for a Monday minute, because at the […]

It’s the end of February! I’m excited to say that I’ve blogged consistently almost every Monday this year! I gave myself a pass last week, but I may go back and do something to make up for it this week. I had it planned, it just didn’t happen. On to March! I love the start […]
