New Website

So, I've spent the past week trying to get my business website a facelift. I wasn't super happy with it the last time I re-worked it but never did go back and fix it.

Now it is fixed and I am super happy about it.

Feel free to check out!

March is Marching On

So it's a corny title....it's my blog and I'm allowed ;)

March was filled with a trip to Toronto and a 32nd birthday for me,
Numerous birthday parties for the kids to attend....most of which happened in the span of a single weekend!

March also consisted of March Break and a week home with the kiddos,
except, it wasn't really spent at home.

We went to Duluth for 2 nights to spend some time as a family.


 March was also filled with new bikes, early birthday presents for the boys from my mom and dad.

This is Owen's first two-wheeler - he loves it, can you tell?
 He has been riding it every day since we put it together on Friday!

March has also marked the beginning for spring here. And for that I am grateful.

Sun stays out later,

windows can be open

kids are begging to be outside all the time.

Spring always reminds me of God's gift of new  life. A life that is no longer my own. It reminds me of the hope I have in Him alone.

This spring, for the first time in a really long time, I am filled to overflowing with the wonder of Who God is. With the Hope that springs from finding rest in Him through every season, every trial, every joy.

When I know WHO He is, resting in Him is easier. When I remember that He is who He says He is (always) then that hope is a permanent fixture.

This year has been a long one. Filled with pain, with goodness, with learning/changing. The best part about this year (and my year starts in September....cuz I'm weird like that)? That God is revealing His Character to me. Who He is - a.l.w.a.y.s.

My prayer has been that God will do something that only He could do. I didn't matter what, or when or how. But I wanted God to show Himself in my life, in my family, in a big way. A way that was so completely from Him that we couldn't miss what He was doing even if we tried.

And He has.....He is.

And it is the most incredible thing there is.

This week the kids have March Break and we decided, pretty last minute, that our little family needed some fun, some smiles, some good old fashioned family time. Time spent laughing and loving and enjoying eachother and the wonder of the blessings that God has lavished on us.

Tuesday morning we loaded up the kids in the van and headed to Duluth. We got there just before 10am, and went straight to the Children's Museum and the Train Depot. They had a blast, we went to Old Country Buffet for lunch, wandered the mall, came back to the hotel to swim (and the little fishes swam!) Then out for dinner, where my sweet little girl fell asleep in my arms.

This morning offers some more shopping, lunch (belated for my birthday) at the Olive Garden, rest time at the hotel (because sleep is fleeting when little children spend the night coughing and coughing and rolling and kicking you in the head while they sleep!) a swim, some time at Adventure Zone dinner at their favourite place...Old Country Buffet another swim and bed.

Yup, we are enjoying each other.

We are thankful for this time away.

I am loving the smiles and giggles from the kids and the excitement on their faces everytime we let them know where we are headed next!
