Reclaiming A Life: Bold And Fearless–Revisited

I just spent the morning reading through all of my posts and I am in awe.

Who knew so much could happen in 6 months?

Happiness, Bold Love, and a Husband

Wow. These past six months. Wow. There was no way I could fathom the changes coming when I started writing. I got happiness, bold love, and a husband (with a Baby on the way!).

Lemons, Lemonade, and Love

Fact: I am not in control of most things that go on in my life. Most plans don’t go “according to plan”. Most relationships go through rough patches because, you know, other people are involved.

Finding Joy: A Bold New World

One of the significant benefits I get from blogging boldly is the ability to look back and clearly be able to see where I’ve been. My blog marks my life completely. It also keeps me accountable for better or for worse. There is a record of every New Year Resolution, Birthday Dream, or Life List I’ve made since I started blogging almost 4 years ago.

Going to the Chapel

I’m getting married tomorrow. Married. I am equal parts excited and pumped with a nice streak of freaking-completely-out thrown in there for good measure. Completely normal, right?

Addicted to the Busy

As part of the wonderful Molly’s Joy Juice [Beta] I’ve been receiving some pretty phenomenal journaling prompts in my inbox every week. I have really relished the opportunity to spend some quiet, reflective, me-time these past weeks and I wanted to share an little epiphany I had during the process.

Dear Baby A

Dear Baby A, You’re going to have a magical childhood; protected and save from all the things that make children grow up too fast. Lucky for you, your Dad is a teacher and gets summers off. You two are going to have the best summers exploring and playing together. You are going to be the only kid in our group of friends; you’re going to have a ton of “Aunts” and “Uncles” who are going to completely fall in love with you. Love, Mama
