Capri Sun provided free product for this post. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this blog post are my own. Well.  Here in East Tennessee there’s only a handful of summer days left.  I think we went ALL  in.  I feel equal parts rested and spent. As sad it I am to see summer fading, I’m […]

I met Adriane in Fredericksburg, Texas.  Otherwise known as God’s Country.  We met there for a girl’s weekend with a some other charming ladies and had a dandy good time.  (That’s her photobombing Jan and the boots in the photo above).  She’s AMAZING, dear people.  She just turned 30 and is the editor of an […]

Freedom

“The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day.” Hope you are enjoying a wonderful day of rest and play with your favorite people. True […]

We’ve been in a string of busy weeks the likes of which we haven’t seen for a long time.  The weekends, which for us are often retreats of reading and writing and food making, have been full to the brim.  So, we decided to claim this one for rest.  We are headed up to the […]

“Every written word is a victory against death.” ~ Micheal Butor (Amy’s favorite quote) Amy Greene is one of a kind.  She’s that  person you meet only a few times in your life—where you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the appointment was divine.  I met her in October of 2010 at an […]

We are enjoying the briefest and most beautiful of snow days—one that actually has snow, which is always nice.  I made chili and am contemplating starting some mocha cupcakes for Valentine’s Day.  I’m worried that I might be snowed in with them, which is not good for my thighs. Who I am kidding?  It’s gonna […]

Those who have suffered great pain of injury or loss are joined to one another with bonds of a special authority.  The closest bonds we will ever know are bonds of grief.  The deepest community one of sorrow.  ~Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses What we often want for ourselves and for our children is […]

So many people I love are either coming out with books this Spring or traveling away on mission trips.  I’m so glad I’ve been reading like a wild woman about the beauty of vocation and sorting out my thoughts on how embracing your own calling settles you right down into your very own life doing […]

Unword2014badge_rough draft

Darlene, Nester, Angela and I have teamed up to take down a few ugly words this year—words we want rid of in our lives, words we want to {UN}do.  I decided to {UN}squander.  The more I thought about my life’s purpose and who it is I was put on this earth to serve, I determined […]

I don’t know about you, but I love a good New Year’s Eve at home with the kids.  We drag out the party hats, noise makers, the Scrabble game, our favorite tunes from the year, a big ole batch of chocolate fondue and party like it’s 1999.  Until about 10 pm, at which point, I […]

I went to the mall on Sunday.  Which means that’s the day I lost all faith in humanity.  If I can help it, I won’t go back.  If I go back, I’ll need to be medicated first. Which is why I want to tell you about  Amazon Prime.  We have Amazon Prime and I encourage […]

Where Joy is Found (Advent 2,3)

by Edie Wadsworth on December 15, 2013

It’s getting eerily close to the 3rd year anniversary of our house fire—that dreadful day during Advent when we lost our home.  I remember thinking that Advent would be forever ruined for me.  Right after dinner, the night of December 21, we read the O Antiphon before we lit the candles and finished the readings.
