anybody out there?

well...hello.  after a year and a half of no blogging, i have no clue if anybody will even read the ole blog anymore, but i want to write again. first a little update to let you know what we've been up to...

our first trip as a family to disney world. it was magical. and beautiful. and we were all sick. hello reality.

 i ran my first "race". and let me tell you something...when i sign up for a 3.2 mile race, that's what i expect to run. not 4.1 miles. that is just wrong. no wonder i felt like collapsing that last 1/2 mile.
 sadie belle learned how to ride a bike. no more baby girl here.
 we went to my happy place. well yes, i visit target weekly, but i'm talking about seaside, florida. it was perfect. and our next summer trip is already booked. cannot wait to go back.
celebrated our 11th anniversary with a trip to NYC and upstate New York...
 and a family dinner at my mom's house! aren't the girls in our family looking so colorful here?!

another item to note: instagram has taken any photography skills i thought i possessed and thrown them out the window. i never use my real camera anymore and don't even know where the sd card is! ha! well that's going to change. hello 2014-it's going to be a great year!


  1. Glad to see you back! I was cleaning up my favorites and before I deleted your site I checked in and to my surprise a post!! I am a fellow servant in Fresno CA. and somehow found your blog several years ago with a mention to the District Convention so I started following when I had a few free moments. Nice to see you and your family again. I don't blog, don't have the time nor the inclination but I do follow a few with good recipes, organization skills, decorating, photography etc.

    1. How cool!! So glad you commented..I'm going to try and post more frequently, so be sure and check back :)

  2. Glad to see you back! I've missed your weekly menu! HA!

  3. Glad to see you're posting again. Whatever happened to susannes blog A Simple Life?
