sheer, squealing joy.
it's contagious.
so excited about a summer full of adventures with you and many more hats.
you have stolen my heart.

New Blog!

well....for some time now i've been wanting to create a separate more streamlined blog for my photography. i've finally taken the time to do it! i'll still keep this one as my family scrapbook, though.

so if you are interested, check it out here....you can subscribe to it on your reader and check back to see what i've seen from this side of the lens!

also, the hubby and i have a new and improved website in the works. so...keep your eyes out for it some time this summer, hopefully! things don't happen as quickly around here as they used to, but the reason for our slow progress is sweet indeed ;)

whew. it was a weekend, but a good one. i'm tired.
friends with one or two kids often ask me how things are going with three. and i answer that it's full throttle all the time. it's chaos. but it's a sweet chaos. life is full.

on saturday we celebrated sumner and grayson's birthdays with a combined party at sports blast. can't say enough good things about that place and their staff. my boys had a blast, thus the name, i guess ;) and so did their friends. i highly recommend it. it was so nice to let someone else take over the party and clean up and just write a check. i usually love diving in and getting creative with a theme and doing their party myself, but this year w/ an infant in the house it wasn't gonna happen!

after their party we celebrated my brother's birthday that evening with a family dinner, then on sunday the ladies of our church had a brunch at mrs. martha's house. good food. good conversation. good times. and now it's time to start the week all over again.

sometimes i get tired just thinking about it. i was talking to a friend at church who has three grown children about the balance of it all. i often say it feels like i can't get my head above water...or the laundry...and i loved her calm honesty in response...she didn't tell me that i am trying to do too much or that i should try to cut something out, because she's been there, she knows the multiple plates that must be spun. she just said, "...and it will be like that for a long time." she knows that what i need is Jesus and His strength and that the only way I will truly keep my head above water is by looking for His hand to keep me afloat.
