I hope you all had a great weekend. We ran our half marathon and to my surprise actually did better than expected, something that rarely happens but was a good surprise, thanks adrenaline! It’s a little harder to find time to train with two kids, but I was happy with my time and actually beat my goal!

This weekend was also a very tough one for our family. You may have seen this story in the news, but it hit a little closer to home for me. The father of this sweet family is the brother of my brother-in-law, and I had gotten to know him and his lovely wife well over the years. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Life is precious and short. I am thankful for my faith which helps me understand that we will see those that we love again some day.



  1. This is such a practical and easy summer look. I love the pop of red with it!

    So sorry to hear about this sad story. Praying for the family.

  2. A tragedy like that is hard to cope–wishing your family comfort and peace!

  3. So sorry to hear of the tragic loss in your family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  4. I am so incredibly sorry for your family’s loss. I live only about an hour from where the accident occurred and heard about it over the weekend. It takes on even more weight, however, as I just learned about the family and that you guys are connected with them. You, and their surviving children and family will be in my prayers!


  5. This outfit is adorable! I love the red bucket bag! I saw your half marathon pictures on Instagram – that must have been such an amazing feeling, congrats!! And I am so sorry to hear about your friends family, praying for the family and for you as well!

  7. What a strange world we live in. You express your grief over losing friends in a terrible tragedy, a wee boy is orphaned, and people are commenting on your frock? I’m astonished.
