new abode

Upon special request from certain friends (you know who you are!), I recently took pictures of our new Utah-house.  Decorating is still in process in the living room, but it is starting to feel like "our place" more and more.

seeing, dreaming, living...


Seeing… much work to do; laundry to finish, suitcases to put away, lunch to be made.

Hearing... fans blowing and the clicking of my typing.  It is a quiet day so far.

awesome and oh-so-awkward

~ awe ~
Living with a mountain view!  These pictures don't even come close to capturing the beauty surrounding me!  Even driving around town, usually at least one mountain is visible.  I am so not used to this!  I'm feeling my flat-lander upbringing.  ;-)

In the car heading to church last Sunday

Take it slow and give your soul a change to catch up with your body.

people-love... and blog survey!

I like people who have a sense of individuality.  I love expression and anything awkward and imperfect.  Because that's natural and that's real.

... little table next to "my spot" on the loveseat,
Thank you for holding journals, mugs of coffee or tea, nail polish, my Bible, earrings, pens, dark chocolate, and many other little things I set on you throughout the day.  I like you.

a girl goes west... {otherwise known as "picture overload"}

Bekah getting in some big brother time!  <3

It has now been over a month since I last saw the rolling fields and towering forests that are my beloved Indiana.  It is amazing how a place can be so significant to you, not because you were born and raised there, but because of the little memories and amazing people that embody a location.
