Easter photos

Last week I cheated and took the kids Easter photos early.  In case you missed them, here’s a sample: It’s a good thing too, because Easter Sunday brought fevers and very cranky attitudes in 2 of the 4 angels above. Thanks to my visiting sister, we managed to take this photo after Mass: even though this […]

An Unexpected Victor

From a crown of thorns… to a wreath of glory… Jesus Christ is risen today. Alleluia! Alleluia!

Celebrations: Theme Thursday

I know, I know, I KNOW it’s not Easter yet and I’m probably committing a mortal sin by dressing my kids in their fancy clothes, but just let’s let it go, ok?  It’s been a rough week. I’ll be honest  (there’s a lot of that going on around this ol’ blog today): I’m off-topic this […]

Humble Pie: Love, Part 3

This is Part 3 in the Love Series.  In Part 1,  I talked about how people (rather than issues) are responsible for the divisions we see in American politics today.  In Part 2, I discussed why it is so important to put Love first. So… hi there.  My writer’s block is cured, in case you were over […]

Bloglovin’ is a Dumb Name for a Feed Reader

… but it looks like this is the reader people are switching to from Google Reader?  Ugh.  I seriously cannot say “Bloglovin’” without grimacing. Blah  blah blah.  In order to claim my blog as my own I have to write this dumb post.  Sorry for wasting your time.  However, if you want to follow me […]

The Pope’s Shoes

A few weeks back, I suffered from a serious case of Conclave Fever.  One of the symptoms was impulse online shopping.  (Seems unlikely, I know.  But don’t judge me. Until you’ve experienced Conclave Fever, you truly can’t understand its debilitating side-effects.) Before all the February hoopla over the papal resignation and upcoming conclave, I had […]

Mr. T, All the Time

Yesterday Jen made my week by sharing this post.  As per usual, it’s funny from start to finish, but what really made my day was the Mr. T tweet at the end. I had something else planned for today’s Quick Takes, but Mr. T is literally going to steal the show.  This brief video has […]

Mud: Theme Thursday

One of the most difficult things about where we live is the lack of accessible nature.  Every square foot of real estate is appropriated here in the big bad city of Daegu, and while there are places to hike outside town, or walk along the river, Koreans have strong opinions about actually playing in the […]

Bugger it all… I’ve got blogger’s block!

This is Part 3 in the Love Series.  In Part 1,  I talked about how people, not issues, are responsible for the “tearing apart” we see in America today.  In Part 2, I discussed why it is so important to put love ahead of politics.  Today I want to talk nuts n’ bolts. That is the beginning […]

Visitors Welcome

Aren’t visitors amazing?  They bring fun and excitement and give you an reason to clean your house well.  Now imagine you live 6,000 miles over an ocean, far far away from the vast majority of your family.  Imagine what a visit like that would feel like. We already have this angel with us: And today the […]
