Instagram pillows DIY

by Kym on December 13, 2012

So, I was on the hunt for a couple of really personal graduation gifts for two special girls graduation from college.   I saw these Instagram gifts on Pinterest, and since I have worked with photos on fabric before and I am a cheapskate, I thought, I could make that! I would say that this […]


Elk in Cataloochee

by Kym on November 7, 2012

Saturday we loaded everyone up to go see the elk in the National Park. We had a van full and as we got up in the mountains to the narrow, dirt road, one of the kids said, ” they should have a sign that says ‘he who enters here abandon all hope’.” Ha! I guess […]


I have this box.

by Kym on November 2, 2012

I have this box. It holds parts of my past. Parts of my present. Parts of my future. And I don’t take it out very often, but it is always a part of me. It influences the decisions I make. It determines some of the choices I hold most dear….. For the rest of this […]

On our way to church the other day, we came across our neighborhood black bear. He was hanging out at our neighbor’s bird feeder. Fortunately, he was in the Bear Crossing!


Of babies and toddlers and magic

Short and Sweet

by Kym on May 28, 2012

I am alone. Blissfully alone. For about 30 minutes. Not one kid. Not one husband. Not one friend. I love time alone. To rest. To sleep. To facebook. To pray…. and when the family comes back home, I will be READY! What do you do when you are alone?  


Letting go

by Kym on March 17, 2012

I am a control freak. Not in the type a “gotta have everything perfect” sort of way, but in the I want to be in the driver’s seat kind of way. So, this week with four college aged drivers along on a trip halfway across the country, I have had to face my fears head […]


Making Movies and Memories

by Kym on February 27, 2012

Mornings in our house generally look like this….the older kids get off to school and the younger ones get up and do their jobs. I get my coffee and breakfast and settle in to check email before we get going on our day. Some days we are slower than others… Today as I was drinking […]

I Read and Read and Read….

by Kym on February 23, 2012
