Adventuring should be one of the core love languages. I think it’s necessary for my soul; part of my essential self. I can’t imagine a life without adventures, just like I can’t imagine a life without animals or pineapple or Reeses. Even better when I get to adventure with people I love, and who love
Father’s Day was more than a little bittersweet for me. I had a mental block on the day for weeks leading up to it, and didn’t even buy my own dad a card (#daughterfail). I bought Husbeast a card, some ice cream, and his favorite candy toppings the night before, so, clearly, I was less
Hey y’all! First and foremost, we are so very grateful for your support, love, partnership and interest in our adoption journey thus far! We have a new update, and we are so appreciative for your involvement in our story. As most of you know by now, we have had three matches since September, and
This is kind of a “weekend wrap-up”, I suppose. One day, when I have time to post more than once/week, I may start doing these more regularly. One day. Over the long weekend we went up the North Georgia mountains with another family to chase some waterfalls with easy hikes for toddlers. These are

In one day I euthanized three dogs, all for vastly different reasons. Each dog died peacefully, and each time, I was immensely grateful for the kindness of euthanasia. People tell me all the time that this must be the worst part of my job, or that they think it’s wrong and we should just let
Husbeast made an astute observation about our current situation the other week, and I cannot stop thinking about it. He said “it’s ok to say no, if for no other reason than the fact that we are so empty right now and have nothing to give.” Empty. Empty arms. Empty energy reserves.
I learned how to macrame last night. I went over to Soul Sista’s house and had another friend who happens to be an expert macrame-er come to teach us the basics. She taught SS how to make a plant hanger, and I’m making a wall hanging. I learned the basic knot and the spiraling knot
We celebrated Easter, Tonks had puppies (woot woot!), and I’ve been adding pieces to The Barefoot Evergreen Collective. Here’s our life lately, in photos! . We dyed eggs with turmeric and blackberries this year, and Punkadoodle got the sweetest book about a unicorn who believes in
I really don’t have anything to write about today. Well, that’s not true. I have a long list of future blog topics, but none of them seemed “right” to me today. It could be because I’m on day three of a headache, started by sinus pressure from allergies and being around a fire for several
