Packing…

It’s been absolutely crazy around here as we condense 4300 square feet into what will be ONE Uhaul load across the country to Tennessee. It’s emotional, it’s exciting, it’s freeing, it’s stressful, it’s all the things. On the one hand, it’s been really wonderful to purge a lot of things that I don’t need to have in my life anymore. …

We bought a farm!

So it’s official! Thomas flew out to Tennessee last week with his dad to sign papers on Shalom farm! With only ONE minor mishap (that almost made it impossible for us to close- thank you Wells Fargo for not knowing how to notarize a Power or Attorney properly), we were able to make it happen!

You are making an Impact…

… the question is, is it a positive or a negative one? Everyday we make choices. We decide to smile at the barista at Starbucks, or avoid eye contact. We decide to say please, thank you, excuse me, or to hold open a door for someone. We decide to be rude. We decide to be short. We decide to let …
