We’ve always loved coffee shops. Now we just bring five groupies and let them be our paparazzi.
Seven hours with seven people in a minivan is not for the faint of heart. But Judah looked at us from across the dinner table last night and with all the sincere honesty his five year old words could hold, “Mom and Dad, I really like when you spend time together. Just like this. As a family.”
Rural Missouri diner family selfie for the win!
I didn’t grow up with brothers. But I really don’t think they get better than the ones my girls have.

Saturday morning adventures with the best five around.
Fourth festivities for the land we love. 🇺🇸
Night out with my favs.
These are my children paying tribute to their great-grandfather. I don’t take it for granted that they won’t just have memories but stories of him. With tears in my eyes and hope in my heart, when looking back through these photographs and film, I’m awestruck by the joy that transcends our grief and am left with two truths. First, what undeserved grace it is to have love poured so freely into my life, a gift that comes with such a divine responsibility to reflect unhindered the same light it sheds. And secondly, when the last page of this chapter on earth turns, one of the greatest marks of a life well-lived must be when that passing, though expressed with tears of missing the daily rhythms of humanity shared with that loved one, can be sincerely celebrated with a rooted real joy knowing we will meet again and embrace in the home we were created with deepest longing for. Yes, I want to live my life so that my funeral is, just like this, a celebration, filled with more laughter than tears because in the place of my heartbeat is hope and in place of my breath is the belief unshakeable that I am more alive than I’ve ever been before.

My neighbors, my training partners, my life coaches, my best friends, my sisters. Life is better when they’re around.
