A Birthday Wish

chrisannportrait1

I've known you for 20 years, almost as long as I've known my husband. We've raised our babies together, parented our littles through scraped knees, hurt feelings and joyful discoveries. We've talked countless hours on the phone and worked side by side while on skype. We've moved states apart with the resolve it was just the beginning of a new chapter and not the end of an old. We've argued and struggled and wrestled when our first born-ness wanted to be heard...and we listened. We listened to the intent of each other's hearts. We … [Read more...]

Better Together

Two weekends ago Kristin and I were together in Baltimore.  Which makes being apart today, Kristin's Birthday, somewhat bearable. Happy Birthday to my bff and biz partner!  Here is to another year filled with JOY and all sorts of good things! Over that weekend we savored every moment, doing the things we love, sharing dinner with friends, planing and talking over our business and catching up.  Of course in order to run our business we talk everyday on the phone or skype, but nothing beats being together in real … [Read more...]

Our Friendship Story ~ Beads

beads

I remember as we left the nursery after the first time we met Devon and Kristin that the nursery care giver had said, "I never saw two babies that age actually seem to interact with each other." We figured if our small babies got along so well in the nursery, their parents probably might get along too.  And, so we hoped for the best.  We enjoyed their son's first birthday and then our son's. One afternoon I sat, round and pregnant folding laundry on my sofa.  To my surprise there was a midday knock at the door.   I could see … [Read more...]

Our Friendship Story~Part 2

We were a little nervous. We'd never been to their home before and here they had invited us to celebrate their son's 1st birthday with them. We pulled up and squeezed our Hyundai Scoop in behind a few other cars. There were a lot of people here. We unbuckled our son, popped the trunk and got our gift out of the back. Linking fingers, we walked up the sidewalk towards the house. We heard a lot of voices coming from the back yard. "Do we go to the front door or just walk around back?" I asked Devon. "Let's just go around back," he … [Read more...]

Our Friendship ~ Story Part 1

Kelly Sauer Pic LoveFeast Girls

Colorado was behind us now. We had left our sanctuary, our beginnings as a married couple. He was just 19 and I was 22. We had married on a mountaintop and had our baby in a town where no one knew our past. Our little town of LaVeta only had 700 people in residence. LaVeta was the perfect stage for falling in love. We woke up every morning, facing the Spanish Peaks, the only mountain range in Colorado that ran east to west. It daily pointed it's majestic finger to home. We would drive up a windy road, weaving in and out of the … [Read more...]
