Last night I finally got to watch the very first episode of 2021’s Great British Bake-Off. 😍😍 As someone who fell in love with and binged the whole show last year, it’s truly a delight to get to watch it in semi-realtime. I’m already in love with this year’s batch of bakers, and I could … More Happy Cake Week!
There are so many big changes happening so fast right now. Our first wedding gift arrived, boxes of belongings and wedding decorations swamp me, apartment hunting = stress, and I’m trying to keep up on homework for my church’s recovery group (more on that later 😉) and a ginormously boring work project. There’s even been … More Three Kids in a Trench Coat
Joshua and I love taking pictures together. Whether it’s a date night adventure, celebrating a holiday, trying a CRAZY looking new food, or just making goofy faces and trying out zany filters, we’ve catalogued so many beautiful memories in the time we’ve been together. ❤️ But this past weekend it was time to take some … More A Very Special Photoshoot
Last night I finally threw away two pairs of shoes that had been mine for approximately 15 years. One pair were my “fancy” slides, with just enough sparkle and heel to make me feel formal but not like I was going trip and fall over.

Since I’ve been looking for a copy of The Last … More Mini Book Haul! (Literally)
It is a truth universally recognized, that a blogger in possession of a schedule must be in want of a knowledge of what day it is. The days have been running together lately. Some stressful and tiring. Others filled with creativity and projects and service and fellowship. All marching on toward holidays and blessedly cool … More What Day Is It?
Books are amazing things. Some shape our childhoods so much that when we reread them we suddenly understand ourselves in a whole new way. Others feed us during tough times of doubt or lend a healthy, lighthearted escape during stressful months. Still others open our eyes and fill us with new empathy and understanding of … More A Visit With An Old Friend
I was catching up on my Bible study today and ran across this oft-quoted verse again. “But Simon Peter answered Him, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.’” (John 6:68-69, … More Words and Life
Once upon a time, there was a Kate. This Kate was a short, frizzy-haired person who loved books and childcare and tea and rain and baking creative things. Kate started out as a kid and slowly became an adult (though it took her a while to realize it). Kate was busy loving books, childcare, tea, … More Once Upon a Time…
