New Year. New Look.


Well HELLLLLLOOOOO, Friends! We are long overdo for a game of catch up, so warm up a drink and sit with me for a bit.

Sooooo how do you like the place? 4tunate was in serious need of a freshening up, and what better time than a new year? All the props to my uber talented hubs and the magic he does with his WhirlSites web design business. What can I say? His skills pay the bills. Literally. Which is why 4tunate went on the back burner for a while, since I don’t pay him as well as his “real” clients. I pay him with warm meals, winks across the room, and clean socks. You know, the important things.

It’s still a bit of a work in progress, so there will be a few changes as we go, but I’m loving the new look and I think you’ll discover it easy to find your way around this space. If you find things that could make it function even better let us know. I’ve been blogging for TEN YEARS now, which is pretty much older than the internet, so it was a TON of content to transfer.


I know I say this every dag-on year, but I LOVE fresh starts and a new year. I love the reflecting on the past year and making tweaks and sometimes big changes to make things better for this year. ┬áIt’s like one deep fresh breath that lasts all January long!

And it helps with a fresh hair cut too, right? {Been putting that off for nearly a YEAR!} #MomLife


Speaking of Mom Life, we have settled in so well to being a family of SEVEN. {Although that still sounds like a BIG number that doesn’t seem real.} Hudson is a people-loving, smiley, champ sleeper, joy-giving, dream of a baby. I know, it’s just ONE baby, and that has him set up to be a breeze, but he really has spoiled us all. . I’ll dedicate a post this week to catching you up on all his stats and fun things he’s up to at six months old.


The boys are CRAZY good big brothers, and love being his constant source of entertainment. They’ve adjusted really well, and are such fun people to do life with. We are approaching a BIG milestone birthday of TEN next month, which is mind-blowing!


Brad and I just celebrated 14 years of marriage. What a RIDE it has been! It’s been a good growing year for our marriage. I love how God continues to teach us so much through our roles. My prayer for this year is that our marriage and home would reflect the gospel.


I’m sooooooo looking forward to writing more, connecting better, and sharing my heart in this space again now that we’ve freshened the place up!

*** Take a quick minute in the comments to say hello again and tell me something fun that you’re doing this new year. ***
