Lots of catching up to do. Jade and I knew by the time we left Charlotte in July that that's where we needed to be. We called David and let him know we wanted to move to Charlotte. After researching... Continue reading

It''s hard to explain why you and your husband are driving to Charlotte to "get away". I mean, Charlotte's nice and all, but why would we drive 13 hours to go there? It really was lame, but we weren't free... Continue reading

We hung up with David and stared at each other. Move??? To Charlotte, NC??? Boy, we didn't see that one coming. Jade has never had a job where moving is involved. We expected to live our whole lives here in... Continue reading

In June of this year, we got a call from David, our contact at CBAC. We had been working toward opening a store in Baton Rouge for almost a year. David: "Guys, we're ending the search for a location in... Continue reading

Sorry for the delay. Thanksgiving, holidays, etc. Jade and I were so excited about building a store in Baton Rouge. We couldn't wait to find out where CBAC would put us. We were hoping it would be closer to where... Continue reading

Jade and I were thrilled that my parents were able to give us the investment for the CBAC (Christian Brothers Auto) franchise. We took that as a sure sign from God that we were on the right track. We called... Continue reading

Alright, so we definitely felt the Lord moving us toward a Christian Brothers Automotive franchise. The only thing standing in our way was that we had NO money to invest.We talked about trying to save the money for the franchise... Continue reading

OK, so you know we're moving to North Carolina, right? But you don't know all the juicy details I've kept secret for almost a year and a half! Well, here goes. It's 12:30 a.m. where I am, so I'm not... Continue reading

"Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you... Continue reading

It's May. Home of... Mother, may I? Yes, you may. May I have the envelope please? May Day Cinco de May-o, and my favorite... "Mommy, may you please get me some water please?" Homeschool co-ops are finished until Fall. We're... Continue reading

As always, our Easter weekend was busy, but full off fun. Saturday, we went to Jade's mom's house in Opelousas. Jade's dad fried turkeys, Jade picked up boudin balls (YUM!) in Krotz Springs and Claire made her first cheesecake --... Continue reading

I just finished filing my taxes. Yeah! I can cross that off my mind. Owen had his second set of tubes put in his ears this morning. I wish that meant he would listen to me now. I'm trying to... Continue reading

We are back from a week in Charleston, SC, and a MUCH needed vacation. Of course, the term "vacation" takes on an entirely different meaning when you're a mama. Vacation no longer means "freedom or release from duty, business, or... Continue reading

Like most mothers, I've let the weight keep creeping up on me until it's no longer tolerable. Shockingly, what everyone has been saying all these years is true: "All that eating's going to catch up with you one day." and... Continue reading

I don't have long to blog. Civilization as we know it is falling apart right outside my door. I'm so glad it's February. February is a big motivating, encouraging month for me. February is not long -- and I have... Continue reading

I finally found a picture that's decent enough to use for my "profile" picture. I've had the same one for two years. I needed to change it before I embarrassed myself in a few years with a drastically aged "me".... Continue reading

At long last, the new location of Treads and Care Tire Company on Coursey opened in September. Jade and I joke that I had my baby in August, and he had his in September. Miles Holley, the owner, and his... Continue reading

More pics to get me caught up. I have a lot of pictures like the one below. It's what Claire does. It makes me happy to see her enjoying her littlest brother. I can remember some pictures from when Ethan... Continue reading

Boy, it's hard to get back to blogging. I think maybe I've got blogger's block. I sort of feel like it's all been said. Also, my thoughts are mostly occupied with "serious" things lately. I'm not sure they're good blog... Continue reading

It's the end of 2010 already, and I'm still in wonder at all that can happen in a year. Our family is not the same as when the year began. God has definitely done some molding and shaping of us... Continue reading

Well, I'm expecting company (on my blog). And it occurred to me that not having posted in awhile is like not having coffee and cake made. I still don't have pictures. I'm still trying to get the dead camera from... Continue reading

Where has the year gone? It never ceases to amaze me how quickly time flies (whether you're having fun or not)! I was all ready to write some actual posts tonight and my camera is dead. Figures. So much has... Continue reading
