I'm Still Here

I don't know why, but for some reason I just haven't felt the urge to stay on top of my blog over the past few weeks.

I don't know if it's because not much is going on in our lives right now, or the fact that I'm still waiting for spring to lift my winter blues.

Really, I think it's that recently I've just been using the little free time that I have differently.

I've been reading more, which has been a shock even to me. I used to label myself as someone who just doesn't read. However, a few months ago a friend suggested that I read The Help. I did, and I loved it! I haven't stopped reading since I finished The Help. Now I have a never ending list of books that I want to read. Who is this person?

I've also been spending less time on the computer in the evenings and more time talking to and snuggling up with Caleb. I feel like we're in a really great place right now, and I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that we're getting more quality time together. ;-)

Don't get me wrong, I really don't want to come across as one of those "holier than thou", "the computer is the devil" people. I don't feel that way at all. I love the Internet, and I love keeping up with people on facebook and by reading their blogs. I didn't make a conscious decision to make these changes, it just happened slowly over time.

I'm not saying that I've made a permanent change and that I'll never blog again. I just hope to find the right balance. Like everyone else, I'm still learning how to juggle time with kids, time with the hubby, time with extended family, keeping up on house work, keeping up with friends, spending time with God and reading his word, and how best to enjoy my free time.

I still love this blog of mine. It's definitely still one of the things I enjoy doing when I do have some free time. I love how it gives me a place to record my thoughts and journal about my life and the lives of my loved ones. So, I know I'll be back soon and I hope I won't neglect this place for too long again.

I was just going to ask you if you planned on ever blogging again =)
I hear you on just not being in the mood lately. I've been there for awhile. Hopefully our blogging picks back up as the weather starts to get warmer. And you better keep posting pictures and stories of your babies!

Love, Sarah

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.
