Okay, now is the time to make the move to the new Tiny Twig! I believe that if you were subscribed here, you will still be subscribed over there (don't quote me on that...check back if you haven't heard from me in awhile!!). However, definitely click over and take a look around. There is some fun new content and lots more to be found in the days to come. All through October I will be blogging about how to look better and spend less time and money on your clothes. It should be a really fun series and I hope... Continue reading

Toggle Commented Sep 14, 2011 on A Summer WrapUp at Tiny Twig Goes Out on a Limb
Since fall is most obviously approaching, as evidenced above, I wanted to share a few of my favorite summer pictures with you. It was a great summer that started with a bang at Mr. Asher's arrival, lulled during his recovery, and then chugged right along until now. Never have I enjoyed (or needed!!) a vacation as much as our trip to the lake this year...and I've been dreaming about going back nearly weekly since our return home. sweetest brothers on the boat my baby brother with my baby and infant skull sized tomatoes! It's been a full summer, indeed! This... Continue reading

Yesterday I posted the above status on Facebook. My oldest is in preschool for the first time--and the half days and constant commuting have put a little bit of a kink in my normal routine. I found myself starting to feel the unrest and frustration that I described in my previous post about seasons of change. I also started to feel like I had more creative inspiration input coming in than I did actual creative activities coming out. That happens to me when I feel stuck...I consume more than create. I get caught up in all the inspiration out there... Continue reading

As we gear up for the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01 this weekend, I wanted to share a few things with you. First, I wanted to share "my story" of that day...we all have one. Then, I want to share with you a site that I have been engrossed by, in the remembering and the stark detail. First, "my story". Well, not to date myself, but I was a junior in High School--nestled safe in the cornfields of Indiana. Living in a town that was consistently rated in the top 5 places in America to raise a family. Protected. After 2nd... Continue reading

your wish is my command. :)
The sweet Aussie foreign exchange student had never had s'mores. GASP. She had never even roasted marshmallows. The horror. Clearly, the situation needed to be rectified--made right. Lucky for her, our backyard is the prime marshmallow roasting locale. Where we live, you have to visit the firestation to get a one day permit to make a bonfire. Our boys accompanied Husband and got the grand treatment. We're talking a firestation tour, sitting in the firetruck, seeing the firepole, and firehats for all. Noah is just making sure he's doing his duty as Honorary Fire Marshall for the evening. His serious... Continue reading

In October, I am joining the ranks of my friend The Nester, Darby from My 3 Boybarians, Emily from Chatting at the Sky, Emily from Remodeling this Life, and Melissa from The Inspired Room in writing on single subject for 31 days. Because I am a busy lady on the go and on a budget--I've decided to write about my secrets to a simple, stylish, not too expensive, no brainer wardrobe. I'd love for you to read along as I tell you how I compiled my wardrobe, show you a sample capsule wardrobe, share outfit ideas from the capsule wardrobe,... Continue reading

Today, I am recovering from a house full of teenagers. Husband's cousin and her Australian foreign exchange student came for the holiday weekend. My youngest brother happens to be the same age. We had all spent the week together a month ago on our family vacation, so the teenagers were anxious to be together again. Husband is the consumate host, and he had a whole weekend planned out with fun and out of the ordinary things for them to do. We went downtown and made our way through the biggest mall in Indiana while we killed time before a baseball... Continue reading

He smiles. He quiets when I snuggle him. He sleeps through the night most nights (PRAISE GOD!). He is wearing 3-6 month clothes. He coos and squeals. He loves his brothers...I can tell this, you know. He seems to prefer his blankie over a pacifer to soothe himself. I thank God ever more each day for him. I am more thankful today than I was the day he left the hospital for his the fact that he is well. I can't imagine life without him. I can't wait for him to sit up--it will make life easier--the Bumbo is cumbersome.... Continue reading

These boys love each other. Noah had his first day of preschool last week--and he LOVED it. He was really ready to spend some time away from the house, away from the family, gaining a little independence. I was excited for him and not even a little bit sad, but I sure next year will be different story. Kindergarten and being gone all day every day is a whole different ball game! Cooper, on the other hand, missed his other half. He sobbed and sobbed the most heartwrenching cries as we pulled away from the preschool. He kept saying that... Continue reading

Photo by Sarah Rice / Sarah Rice for This article makes my heart so full, I could burst open. Take a moment to click over and read it, if you can. You see, I am beyond blessed to be married to a wonderful man and a part of a very giving family. When the dark days after Asher was born proved too difficult to handle alone, we had help. Many people don't have that safety net. They may wonder what would happen to them if a serious illness or injury befell them. I can relate to some degree due... Continue reading

thanks, Michelle for sharing this. also, the actual song starts at 1:00 if you don't want to wait through the chatter. For you, this morning. Love hymns. Something about the timeless truths being sung simply, purely. Nothing like it. I love knowing that what was true then is true now, and the feelings we have now echo through the ages. It doesn't hurt that Mumford and Sons are amazingly awesome. Continue reading

pinned on my pinterest I am a planner. I like plans. I like being intentional, and I like making good choices and decisions. Blame it on my first born tendencies, I certainly did for a long while. But, I think a lot of this fact is that I am afraid to fail. I am afraid to make less than perfect decisions. I don't want to just make good decisions, I want to make perfect decisions. I live in a world of affluent Dave Ramsey advocates and Master's educated influencers. I live in a world of good Christian men and women... Continue reading

Who gets your sweetness? Your ooey gooey, most loving and giving part of yourself? Who gets the reap the benefits of the best you? Who spends time with you during your best part of the day? What is the best part of your day? And, who are the poor souls who have the endure the moments during your...not best...part of the day? What is the time of day you drag and struggle through? These are all things that are good to know about ourselves. You can maintain your schedule so that you love the best during your most "loving" times... Continue reading

This is the outfit I wore for our portraits on vacation. You may see this image on the upcoming Tiny Twig redesign...who knows? Consider it a sneak peek if you will. :) The shirt is from Madewell, the little and slightly edgier sister of J. Crew. I am in love with this shirt--well worth the money for a little added style. The skirt is a chambray paperbag-ish skirt from Target last year. I wear it a lot with a vintage T and flats. It's super easy and has a nice forgiving waist (would have been cute while pregnant!). The belt... Continue reading

Seasons change. We know this. We instinctively start quietly yearning for the next season, just in time for it's arrival. Is this how we were wired? I know that in the changing seasons of life, this has served me well. Just before a huge life change, ones that I couldn't have predicted or planned, my heart has grown uncomfortable with the status quo. Such grace. I'll be chugging through my days, with the contentedness and peace that I get when our family is operating in our "sweet spot". Then, slowly and surely I'll begin to feel an itch. It is...

we live in town--so when i left the crowds I came how to my crazy boys. :) love them, but they are practically as overstimulating as the conference! looking forward to hearing what you think!
looked at the lineup for who is speaking at that one--it's totally different than Indy. will be interested to hear what you get out of it. :)
I thought of you and prayed for you while she was speaking. She described the physical conditions that Audrey had, and it sounded so similar to what you had described of your sweet Ollie. Know that you are still prayed for, friend.
i agree about the marketing. oh man! the women of faith visa definitely made me cringe--so strange to see that. and, it definitely felt like one loooong book pitch at times. i tried to take the good and not be critical of what bugged there were definitely things that bugged me. :)
