Canada, Oh Canada | Part 1

Guess who gets to cross a destination off of her Passport Picks list..... Me! Last weekend K and I took a short anniversary get-away trip to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada! Our little Midwestern town is exactly 5 hours from the tourist trap and neither of us had ever been, so I booked us a trip!… Continue reading Canada, Oh Canada | Part 1

My Full Heart

Two years ago at this time (10pm) I was freshly married and dancing amongst our fabulous wedding guests. I had no idea where I'd be two year later. I definitely can't complain.

We typically… Continue reading NASCAR: Bristol, Tennessee

Grateful Heart: link-up

I have been waiting for this link up since Friday. Sometimes I let my heart get dark and jagged, and when I finally realize what's happened it's too late- I've already pricked someone. Yesterday we celebrated Jesus' resurrection. He died for our sins. My sins. Sins like my prickly heart. And for that I am… Continue reading Grateful Heart: link-up
