reinventing

It always seems so exciting...so invigorating...to see someone change courses and find something they're passionate about and run toward it with all their heart. But being on the side of the one getting ready to change course...let me tell you, it's terrifying. I've...

Our other kids

I write about our three children all the time. Their pictures are scattered all over this website. But we consider that we have several other children. Kids we've never actually met, but who we love very much. The oldest is one that Josh and his sister sponsored when...

ACTION update: March

It's now mid-March. How's my action coming? First off, I'm realizing that I've bitten off more than I can chew. So I'm changing my schedule for some things, and I'm choosing to be okay with that.   make tamales make macarons make Manti (a Turkish ravioli-style...

Action: Month 2

2019 is my year of Action. And boy, does that mean something different than I expected! First of all, life throws curve balls. 10 days ago, I fell and landed on my tailbone. Like, directly on it. I'm pretty sure it's just bruised and not fractured (the treatment is...
