my one year old love bug.

my one year old love bug.

It’s hard to believe that 1 year ago my little love bug was born. It has been the best year of our lives. So different. So crazy. So sleepless. But more love than I could ever imagine and more joy that I could ever describe. More happiness. More laughter. More fun. More wonderful. Just the […]

Sammy’s first trip to Montana.

Sammy’s first trip to Montana.

Off we jetted to Montana for a trip of many Sammy-firsts! His first airplane trip went off without a hitch and we landed in Montana on a hot summer day ready to party. We started in Whitefish with lovely Popi Bill and Mimi Tina (Ben’s dad and stepmom), Uncle Jamie (Ben’s brother) and Tina’s beautiful family at […]

Sometimes…

Sometimes…

Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the sent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood – finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could […]

We soaked in the sunshine and the laughter around the campfire and drank in the coming summer. Joy, joy and more joy. […]

Week 4. Our poppyseed on the White Spruce Trail in the Hillside Trail system. A fitting place to celebrate as we had just found out the day before that we were PREGNANT! We spent the whole walk dreaming. And I get tearful remembering how many other walks we had prayed, pleaded, cried, hoped, and wished for […]
