Knoxy

Do we have any middle children in the house? 🙋🏻 Stockton and I are both the middle of three kids. But our personalities don’t necessarily follow traditional birth order psychology (OK, mine is birth order to a T, but Stockton is in a league of his own, always mature and responsible and VERY UN-MIDDLE-CHILDISH).  This […]

A Lenten Covenant

Lent. What do you think of? I’ll be honest, the first thing that comes to mind for me is giving up chocolate, or tv, or booze… some feeble attempt to temporarily give up something that you consider to be no good for you. For what, though? So you can scratch those 40 days off your check […]

Pray & Purge

I have been in a major purge mode lately as I prepare for our move later this year. Everything I own is on the chopping block it seems. And if you are a local friend in a certain Facebook resale group, you can totally attest to my random postings (old kids shoes, platters, my Christmas […]

Picture This

Last Saturday, I attended a workshop that has been on my bucket list for several years. Stockton and I bought a DSLR camera before we got married in 2010 and it took me several years before I tapped into the potential of that camera. I shot in manual for my business (product photography and product […]

I am a Girl on the Run

Ten years ago, I ran my first half marathon. I was a Freshman in college, and I trained on a diet consisting mostly of large Reese’s cup blizzards from Dairy Queen (oh youth, I miss you). It was a family affair (as running often was as I was growing up) and I ran the Indianapolis Mini […]

Jamie’s Junk Salad

While we were in Florida, my mom whipped up the most delicious and filling salad for us to take down for a big poolside lunch with some friends. It was basically an exercise in throwing in everything she had in her kitchen into a bowl. It’s sort of the Helman style of cooking. A little bit […]

We interrupt this diet to bring you: Vacation

So about those macros… 😐 Vacation involved lots of indulging, LOTS of wine (forthelove, we put away some serious vino over the last two weeks), lots of fish (don’t be fooled, most of it was of the fried variety) and an overall mindset of “if it sounds good, I’m going to eat it.” And you […]

Beach Daze

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end (sadly, this includes our vacation to our favorite beach town of Fort Myers Beach). Stockton joined us for the first week and then jetted off to Arizona for a week of work and meetings in their Phoenix office while I stayed in Florida with my mom and […]

“This stage is my favorite”

“This stage is my favorite.” I must have used this line no less than 1,000 times in the last 5 years of having kids. It began when Navy was a baby and I thought I would be sad to watch him get bigger. The newborn stage is my favorite. I’m reminded of this now as Brighton […]
