Every tree limb overhead seems to sit and wait, while every step you take becomes a twist of fate.
Up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road...

Throwing Caution to the Wind


Last night I sent this blog address to a small list of people.

And am pretty sure I swore my parents and sister to secrecy just a few days ago...

But we are throwing caution to the wind and telling everyone our big news!

In very J like fashion he said to me last night "why are you building this blog again but not sending it out to everyone?" When you put it that way the logic just doesn't hold up.

I'm not a happy secret keeper and I've kept this one for way too long on the scale of Amanda's ability to keep secrets.

So if this is your first visit just scroll all the way down and start with the first post to see why we are so excited.

Thanks for the comments of support so far!

Here is some eye candy from Colorado this past fall.
Maybe more than anywhere I've been Colorado reminds me of God's unique design for beauty.
It is a good place to be for inspiration.



  1. HORRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO SO excited.

  2. I, for one, and VERY HAPPY that the secret is out!! And so happy to be "in the know"....can't wait to follow along with you!!!
