Tuesdays With Kayla

Today I am thankful for this pretty lady right here (see above!). This is my cousin Kayla. We are exactly 16 years apart in age, both born on January 9th.

5 Game-Changers With Me & God

5 Game-Changers With Me & God

Please welcome back my hunk of a husband today, Chuck Dubbe! Having grown up in a family of church-goers, I’ve always been exposed to God. I actually don’t recall a time when I didn’t believe in God.

I’m THANKFUL for the people who helped introduce the following 5 game-changers in my life: 1) “Sweet Things”. Shortly after…

Little people have lots to be thankful for, too. It’s a blast to ask them and hear their answers. This is what my 4-year-old-son, Jase had to say. “Jase, what are you thankful for today?” “GiGi” (one of his two amazing Grandmothers) “Climb the tree.” “Running around in a circle with my cousins.” These sweet answers just warm my heart to bits and pieces! God is so kind to bless us with such a wonderful son. #thankfultoday What are YOU thankful…

Nothing Like Old Friends

Nothing Like Old Friends

It’s been a lot of fun to make friends in our new town, but there is nothing like the comfort of old friends (and by old, I mean long-time, we are nowhere near old ;). This past weekend, our dear friends the Rufles came to visit! They are the first friends to visit us from our old home, and we are so grateful they came! Even though we had quite a cold, rainy Saturday- we didn’t let that get us…
