... A Blogging Year in Review

Not my idea, but I'm taking the first sentence of a post from each month throughout the year.

There is a little bakery cafe in Soho I like to visit.

Today while I was working, I had one of my favorite Jane Austin movies on and playing in the background-- Mansfield Park.

Just around the corner from my home stands a charming little independent book store named Broad Street Books.

I've been thinking a lot lately about the lies I tell myself.

If you are ever in a rut or in need of a little pick me up, I highly suggest throwing a party for a group of preteens.

Today Rebekah and I spent four hours hiking part of the Appalachian Trail.

This week I finished reading a very propelling book called Good News About Injustice: A Witness of Courage in A Hurting World by Gary Haugen.

Lately I've been making a concerted effort to buy my food locally and to buy grass fed meats vs. grain fed meats.

Yesterday, my friend Madonna succumbed to a 6 year battle with cancer and went home to be with the Lord.

I love being outdoors year round, but it just seems extra special in the fall -- especially listening to the wind blow through the dry, crunchy leaves.

For me, November 6th will begin at 5:15am when I raise my right hand and repeat an oath swearing me in.

One of the stranger things about being in Arizona was being in a desert.

Here's to another year in blogging... Happy New Year!
