2018.

2018 began for us with a house full of boxes.

At the end of January, Josh and I packed our lives into a trailer and moved from Alliston, Ontario to the east end of Toronto.

OUR BIG NEWS

OUR BIG NEWS

It’s hard to know how to begin.  

Looking back, I can’t help but feel like all major life events are really difficult to explain in a clear narrative. When did it really start? Where exactly did that first domino fall over? I honestly have no clue.

2016 was a bumpy ride for our family. 

Between a lengthy job hunt for my husband, a difficult pregnancy (in which my gall bladder basically decided it hated me), transitioning from 1 to 2 children (glorious, but, #CRAY), and then managing the tight financial limitations of an entry-level salary in a single-income home, it’s a year I wouldn’t really care to re-live. 

THE TRUTH

THE TRUTH

Growing up as a pastor’s kid in a single-income home meant we never had much cash floating around.  

I learned a lot of key life lessons because of this, including the fact that Puffed Wheat cereal is a grievous waste of space, Puffed Rice is far worse, and car troubles are actually The Worst Thing Ever.  And they never stop.  At least, they never seemed to for us.
