Dive Right In

That first step, taking the plunge, walking into the unknown. It's all hard to do. Going on a cruise with mostly people I don't know was a big deal. Going snuba (kinda like scuba) diving was an even bigger deal. And leaving my husband and my children for an entire week? Well, that's just big infinity.

But we survived, all of us. I had fun, my children are alive and my husband is the best man I've ever known. He didn't SLEEP while I was gone. The house was spotless, the laundry was done and on top of working and caring for the children, he finished priming, painting and setting up my desk/creative space. IT.IS.AMAZING. and I can't wait to show you.

I feel loved, rested, sunned and ready to take that step back into normal life. You know, that life where I'm not waited on hand and foot?

It's good to be home.


  1. that is great. I'm so glad your cruise went well! I'm about to leave my kids for 12 days while Jeremy and I go on a missions trip to Turkey. I'm excited about our trip but dreading missing them like I know I will! They will be in great hands with Jeremy's family but it is still so hard!

  2. welcome back. It sounds like an amazing and well deserved break.

  3. welcome home and so happy you had a great break! your crayon roll is coming!

  4. I looked at the pics from facebook and it seemed like such a fun trip :) I hope you had a blast! I am leaving Sitora possibly with my mom while I go to a conference with Mindy this summer. It will be about a week and I'm still not sure if I want to go through with it. Leaving your children with your husband is much different than with anyone else :)

  5. Wow, your hubs is a rock star. Seriously. You are blessed to have such a beautiful family to come home to. But then you know that already! :)

    Glad you had a good trip.

  6. So glad you had a good break. You know it's been a good one when you come home feeling the way you do -- rested, loved and ready to take on life again.

  7. That is such a sweet picture.


Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I love hearing from you.

P.S. I'm sorry for the word verification step, but oh, my. I'm getting lots of spam.
