Thank You


I have said thank you innumerable times the past week and yet it doesn’t feel like enough. So many wonderful family members, friends, church members and co-workers have come around us this week to celebrate Ali’s adoption day with hugs, balloons, gifts, cards and encouraging words. Tthey’ve been cheering us on for the past 11 months. I’d be remiss to not also thank YOU: my blog readers.

I know a lot of you consider yourselves “lurkers” because you read but don’t comment. And that’s perfectly OK. I’m posting my thoughts all over the web and you’re welcome to hang out here—I’m honored that you even read what I write! Many of you do comment and I’m always delighted to see feedback from the handful of “regulars.” I’m thankful for those who have read along with our foster/adoption story, cared about us, supported us, prayed for us and celebrated with us.


From the bottom of my heart, Thank You! I wish I could send you all a card!

Thank you, Ohdeedoh!


I failed to mention it here last week (crazy week, you know?) but last Monday—4 days after Ladybug arrived—Ohdeedoh ran a very kind interview with me and a tour of our kids’ room. I’m honored that they would choose to share our story with their readers. Also thank you and welcome to all of you who have been stopping by here after reading about us on Ohdeedoh! I hope you’ll stick around and share in this exciting new journey with us.

I Love Y’all!


It’s the week of Valentine’s Day and I just want to take this opportunity to tell you all how much I appreciate you. When I started this blog (like any other blogger I guess) I was talking to myself, then a few friends, then a few strangers and now there are a whole bunch of you who read. I am seriously so humbled that you take the time to visit this here little blog.

A week or two ago my post to comment ratio inverted. Maybe that doesn’t seem like a big deal to you but I was pretty excited about it. I don’t ask for comments very often and not many of you comment. I don’t mind cuz I still know you’re there. I mean not specifically who you are or anything creeper like that, but I know the number of you that are out there on the other side of the screen. And truly, it means the world to me. I love you all!

In celebration of love and blogging and mid-century modern, I’m doing my first giveaway tomorrow!
