Full Hearts {Empty Arms}

I admire every mom and dad out there. You deserve to be celebrated. You are AMAZING...raising kids is no joke. It is the most selfless season and despite how you feel, you're probably doing an amazing job. But celebrating is hard for us.

This Is Not Final

I sat on a plane on my way to Johannesburg in January of this year. Part of me was so excited to go see my family and work at the school. The other part of me knew I was going to miss my husband terribly. Some where in between these two feelings was an unrest… Continue reading This Is Not Final
