What I’m Into {August 2015 Edition}

And just like that, another month makes its way into the history books. August ends today, and I’m not sad to see it go. August in Texas is brutal and left me muttering on occasion this month how I’d completely lost my will to live. Apparently most of my outdoor plants feel the same way. Although it won’t necessarily be cooler… Read More

Sharing Enchiladas with Jesus { A New Covenant }

It’s no secret that I love Tex-Mex food. Or, as we like to call it here in Texas — food. My babies were eating tamales and refried beans before they even had teeth.

We went to the beach for a week and I read pretty much the whole time. I’ve also been tackling lots of projects around the house, which means I’ve… Read More

Chasing the Flash in the Ordinary Moments

For fifteen years I’ve been a semi-stay-at-home-mom. There have been seasons when I felt the title was a little ironic, since I was rarely ever at home. And then there were those long toddler days, when the hands of the clock seemed to move in slow motion and the tedium often gave way to depression and a feeling of being… Read More
