December Madness

Since Thanksgiving ended, the Rev. and I have been up to our eyeballs in events. All beautiful events for families and our community, they have just caused us to be busier then usual. This is the longest we have gone without blogging, sorry about that, we will be back in full swing come the end of Advent. 

Here is what I have been up to in PICS. 










Merry Christmas!!!

A Grateful Heart

Hello Friends. We are on the eve of Thanksgiving and we are pretty busy around here prepparing for manana. Each year we host a supper that feeds 200-300 at St. George's Church. We are busy organizing volunteers and prepparing to share a meal. Of all our work, one of the most meaningful activities for tomorrow will be our Thanksgiving service. I don't know about you, but sitting quietly in a beautiful space is the perfect opportunity to reflect on our lives and give thanks.

Liza and I have been a bit absent this semester on the blog, because there is much to be thankful for in our lives. We love blogging, but more importantly we are so appreciative of the people we have been given. This season, I have found myself slowing down in a real way. I am trying to listen to my ninos when we walk to and from school, Jake and I are tucking our phones away more often, and I am taking the time to just breath. 
I know as we prepare for one of the most wonderful & anxious seasons of the year, taking a moment to be grateful for what our season is about will be what gets us all through December. 


If you need a place to rest and breath there are two things I suggest. 

UNO: Stop in at Calvary- St. Georges Church


DOS: Pick up the Mockingbird-Zine. You will find real respite within the pages of each magazine. 



Happy Thanksgiving to you all! 
Thank you for reading and being part of our lives.

Big News

In case you haven't noticed, I've been a bit preoccupied lately and haven't been as active with either house projects or on the blog over the past few months.  I'm happy to report that I have a wonderful, tiny excuse for my overall lack of renovation motivation-- WE ARE HAVING A BABY!!!!  

We have wanted children for many years, but it just hasn't happened.  We have waited and prayed and been to a thousand doctor's appointments over such a long time, so this amazing news is pretty overwhelmingly wonderful.  I'm so thankful!  

AND, we're having a girl!  I'm all about surprises, and finding out what we are having was a fabulous surprise-- just not one that I was willing to wait for:)  



Thanks for sharing in our joy... and for hanging in there with me as I recover from pregnancy exhaustion!
