Opposition or Just Different Position

Do you know anyone who rubs you the wrong way no matter what you talk about? Every conversation with them is an event. You have to either bring your shield to keep your appearance in tact and pretend their words haven’t phased you, or bring your sword to defend…

Weight of Presence

We live in this strange time of both too much and not enough communication. I can text my friend in another state and get a response in seconds, but will we talk about anything of substance? Or will we just ask each other what’s new, reply with a bulleted…

Back to Busy

Whether you have 3 kids in school, you’re a college student, or you’ve been completely out of the school scene for 20 years, we can all feel it. Summer break is at an end. There’s this almost-lull to the time in between seasons.

A calm before the storm.

For parents, the…

You’re Not Stuck

You’re not really stuck, you know.

You can move. Change. Grow. You may not realize it, but you have already grown. You’re not who you were before this season began, and when it passes to give way to something new, you will no longer be who you are today. (Isn’t…

We’re Not OK Either

Raise your hand if you never struggle.

…nobody? Not a single hand in the air…hmm….

Exactly.

This post isn’t “how to fix all your life problems” nor is it a plea to “stop your whining, you big baby”. Number one, heck if I know how to solve all your problems–I’m still working…

Fireworks and Front Porch Sunsets

I grew up on a “farm”–quotation marks because we didn’t actually farm, but we did have 10 acres of land and all sorts of outbuildings full of old, rusty farming equipment. (Sounds totally safe, right?) It was a great place to grow up and explore. And keep a teenager…

Memories of Dad

Father.

What comes to mind when you hear that word? Is your memory flooded with images of being held steady as you ride your bike without training wheels for the first time? Strong hands fitting a wriggling worm onto your first fishing hook? Furrowed brows you can barely see, peeking…

Remember on purpose

As a young country, I think America sometimes finds it both too easy and too difficult to actively remember our history. It’s all so recent that we don’t have the story-telling-down-the-generations habit in place like native tribes all over the globe so beautifully demonstrate.

Memorial Day in the US can…

What Makes a Mom?

Mothers do so much more than make meals, wash our clothes, and drive us to soccer practice and music rehearsals. They are present – from beginning to end. They change mountains of diapers. They sacrifice hundreds of hours of sleep to hold us when we’re crying or sick. They…

…And We’re Blogging!

Our company has grown and morphed so much over the past several months–starting a blog just feels like the next natural piece of our puzzle. My name is Megan and you’ll be hearing from me and my good friend Sara (wave to the people, Sara!) on a regular basis,…
