To Infinity and Back.

November 30, 2016

I love you to Infinity & back. My mom and I have had this saying for as long as I can remember. Whenever we write or text each other, we shorten it to “luti+b“. It’s “our thing,” our saying for sure and each time we say it to each other, it feels like a secret handshake, a club meant just for us. While others may understand what the saying means, only she and I know the depth of all it…

Epic weekends. (A Grateful Heart)

January 18, 2016

Can you remember the last time you had an epic weekend? I’m talking, you-laughed-you-cried-you-barely-took-any-pictures-but-you-did-get-tattoos-and-you-never-wanted-the-weekend-to-end epic?? That was my weekend, plus so much more. Family time is always cherished in my family – I soak up every minute when we’re all together. But, there’s something so special about having time with just my mom, or just my dad, or just my brother. This past weekend it was just me and my mom and there were so many snapshot of the soul kind…

Friday Favorites, with a side of Beyonce.

January 15, 2016

Happy Friday, all! I’m spending the day today with one of my favorite people, My Best Gal (she also goes by “Mom”) – she’s visiting for a long weekend and we have all kinds of exciting things planned like watching Big Bang Theory reruns and Matthew McConaughey movies and planking for 60 seconds in a turtleneck and eating Skittles in our pjs… also, roaming the aisles of antique stores and trying to convince the other person that you came up with…

Shipshewana & BFFs. (A Grateful Heart)

August 24, 2015

Well, WOW. What a week I had!! If you’re catching up (much like I’ll be doing this next week), I’ll tell you that I just spent the last week in Indiana – with a few days of that spent in Shipshewana, IN with my mom, her bffs and my own bff. We stayed at (the CUTEST) Bed and Breakfast, shopped until we dropped (quite literally), and ate until we could not eat anymore. (Darn you Amish people and your amazing…

Adventuring with My Best Gal (A Grateful Heart)

August 17, 2015

Because nothing says ‘Adventure’ like a fannypack. This week I’ll be road tripping it with my mom, one of my bffs, and a bunch of my mom’s bffs as we head to Shipshewana, IN. (No, I’m totally not making that up- it’s a real place.) With a population of just under 700, one might wonder what the heck a bunch of women will be doing in this quaint Amish town and I’ll tell you – WHATEVER WE WANT. WE’RE GONNA GO…

I love you to infinity and back,…

Merry Christmas!!

December 25, 2014

This is one of my favorite Christmas verses – every time I read it I want to jump up and give so much praise! If you read it slowly and focus on each line, there is so much comfort, promise, joy and hope it brings – for all the people. Amen!!! What a special day to be linking up with Anne for some wishing! I am wishing my best gal the happiest birthday today!! Mom, I hope it’s the best one…

A Grateful Heart (+ weeklong linkup!)

November 3, 2014

Happy Monday, my grateful heart people 🙂 It’s a new day and I want to remind you- no matter how great or rotten your morning began, this moment right now is the perfect time to continue the greatness or to turn the rottenness around. Close your eyes, deep breath in, deep breath out, and begin again but this time, begin with a grateful heart. Most of you are probably expecting a Breaktober recap on here today and while that’s what…

Peanut and Goliath

May 16, 2014

I’m on vacation this week, so I thought it would be fun to have some of my favorite people guest post on Ember Grey while I’m away. If you caught my post a few weeks ago about my Wild Childhood, you know all about the wild animals (literally) that I grew up with. Today’s guest is my best gal, my mom, and she’s sharing one of her favorite stories about one of her “babies.”  // “Mom! Peanut’s back!”  This had…

A day to celebrate (Her).

May 11, 2014

*photo taken on our special Mother’s Day shoot by the very talented photographer (& friend!) Lane Lewis.   My mom. My best gal. I can’t even look at this picture without tearing up. She is my life giver and my life saver. She is the one I turn to with every big and every little “thing” that happens in my life. She is the one I eat grapes with, the one I watch really poorly made sci-fi movies with, making…
