Living A Simple Life-Part 62: Summer Plans & Notes

This week, our midwives came for a visit to our home to get familiarized with everything before the birth. We made sure the birth kit was in place, and talked about our plans for the birth. The baby is head-down and engaged, and I will be continuing my regular “pelvic tilt” exercises to help with

Living A Simple Life-Part 60: Preparing for Natural Birth

This past week, we had a lovely visit with our midwives, and a dear friend (who is planning on attending the birth) was able to be there with us as well. She got to hear the baby’s heartbeat through the fetoscope, and feel the baby snuggled up in my tummy!

Since I’ll technically be “full-term”

Gratituesday: Potty Learning

These past couple weeks, I have been so thankful for our potty-trained two-year-old! It has been such a blessing to not be hauling around bags of diapers during our recent traveling and now our moving.

Living A Simple Life-Part 47 (A New Season)

In choosing to live simply, we choose to trust God for our daily provision- one day at a time. We are content in living with “just enough.” knowing that many others in this world lack even that. So, when God blesses us with abundance, it is overwhelmingly precious.

Cream & Chive Dip

Every afternoon after lunchtime, Gen hauls a stack of books to her bed for “naptime.” While she’s crashing around in there “napping” (playing with toys until she collapses with a pillow & blanket), I usually spend some time refocusing. I like to pull out a devotional and a snack (or occasionally hop in the shower!)

Living A Simple Life-Part 40- A Simple Pregnancy

Along with everything else in life, I am striving to approach pregnancy/birth simply as well. We were finally able to meet with our midwives in person today!
