The Best Bra I Have Ever Worn

I don’t usually share my favorite types of fashion trends and accessories, however, I found a bra last year that has made a huge impact in my life. This may sound like an ad, but I promise that is not what this is. I honestly just wanted to share the news with you! I have always struggled with finding the right bra size. I also dread shopping for new ones because it feels like a waste of time and money. It takes forever to find one that fits right, and then after bringing one home and wearing it for a day I end up hating it. This has been my life.  Last year I saw an ad on Instagram for ThirdLove. I was intrigued by

Paleo Strawberry Rhubarb Cake

My family was invited to another families house for dinner recently. I hate showing up empty handed, even though I was told everything was taken care of! I knew a dessert would be accepted regardless! This family has some dietary restrictions and I have been looking for healthier recipes for my family too. I did a quick Google search for paleo rhubarb cake…AND OH MY! This recipe I found was sooooo good! Every person loved it, even the kids! The original recipe can be found here: http://www.forageddish.com/blog/2014/8/12/rhubarb-upside-down-cake But I tweeked a few things. I used a bundt pan, I used chopped rhubarb that was frozen instead of strips, and then after it was done cooking topped the cake with a little bit of the pureed strawberries. It

My Favorite Marriage Moments

Have you ever been going on with your daily routine and something happens that trigger a flood of memories to rush your heart and mind? That happened to me and it felt so good. It put a huge smile on my face. It is usually a small gesture that my husband does or something he says that trigger this for me. A few of my favorite memories rushed my heart recently and so I thought I would write them down. Maybe when I am old and forgetful I will stumble back upon this and experience that rush once again. My husband and I have spent a ton of time together. We have worked together, served together, and, well, just living together has all provided ample opportunity

Visiting The Roloff Farm During Pumpkin Season | Vlog #18

Over the last 2 years we have had the privilege of getting to know Jeremy and Audrey Roloff. Jeremy and his family have one of the longest standing shows on TLC called Little People Big World. Jeremy grew up on his family farm just outside of Portland, Oregon. We have loved getting to know Jeremy and Audrey. They are passionate about encouraging marriages just like we are. They launched a site called Beating 50 Percent that has some awesome resources for couples. This fall we took the kids to visit the Roloff Farm during pumpkin season. Unfortunately, the weather was terrible. As we arrived we had heard the news that a tornado had ripped through a small town on the coast not too far from

Glass Beach & Our SoCal Meet-up | Vlog #13

As long as I can remember I have had a desire to see Glass Beach. I don’t know when I found out about it, but it has been years. When my husband and I decided to drive down to California this summer, I begged him to take a detour to see Glass Beach. This is it behind us.  I am not sure if I was uncomfortable from how long we had been traveling or how much more we had to go in our trip or how far out of the way it was or because I was pregnant and emotional or because the experience didn’t measure up to what I thought it would be…I was a little disappointed. By the time we got there and
