Five years as big as TX

October is easily the favorite month for both J and me (I know we’re not alone in this), because it’s the pinnacle of all things fall and more importantly it’s our anniversary month.  It literally feels like we just got married and we’re still trying to figure out how we’re not newlyweds anymore and how we are closer to 30 than 20, but we’re not here to dwell on that.  I’m not going to lie we for sure went HARD IN THE PAINT this go round on the whole celebrating situation which is totally justified because we made it FIVE YEARS everybody and any anniversary, with exception to the first, ending in a 5 or 0 calls for a little something extra.  Read More »

McKinlee’s Magical 4th Birthday Party

Our sweet McKinlee Harper Horschig is FOUR.  Four years old.  Four meaning that she is no longer a toddler and most definitely not a baby, but four years old and a beautiful little girl.  She continually stretches my heart daily to more love than I can imagine.  She is so smart it’s borderline scary.  She has a heart for people and already an even deeper love for the Lord.  She is a whole lot of sugar AND buckets full of spice along with princess things, dance, imagination, singing, coloring and adventure.  All of it.  I can remember being beyond petrified that God brought me into motherhood early, but every day she makes being a mama the highest honor and the last four years of watching her grow have most definitely been an indescribable gift.  Read More »

Feed your soul.

I believe there is an epidemic spreading like wildfire these days and I hold social media accountable for this problem (yes, another one of those I’m sorry).  Why has it become so easy to side with the hustle and bustle of busy rather than to find time to intentionally invest in what makes our hearts grow?  Here’s the deal, we use a crazy amount of our time taking the quick way out on growing relationship by checking on our friend’s latest story or status on facebook.  Don’t get me wrong I am unbelievably grateful for the resource to connect with people and keep up with them ESPECIALLY when distance is a factor (I’ve made insta friends which has been the neatest thing), BUT I am just as guilty as anyone in feeling like that the scroll check up is good enough.

Horschig Vacay: Glamping Edition

Happy FRIYAY Friends!

It’s the last day of August and FALL will be upon us soon (praise God from whom all blessings flow), but as promised via instagram here I am attempting to provide some details of our extremely “extra” Horschig family vacation in memory of a great 2018 summer.  I am completely unashamed in saying that we went GLAMPING and y’all it was hands down one of the best experiences I’ve ever had camping in the primetime season of sun.  Read More »

Dear Rachel Hollis, Girl, thank you.

Dear Rachel Hollis,

This may not be an ideal situation of how I should kickstart or revive a prior attempt at blogging, but hey who really always knows what they’re doing before they go for it.  There has to be a risk somewhere, a leap of faith right? So here’s mine.  I think every woman and their dog is reading or has recently read Girl, Wash Your Face and rightfully so. It seems to be a song on repeat that we’re all jammin’ out to because why?

Class dismissed.

I probably picked a million different words to title this post because to no surprise the side effects of my regular indecisiveness and swirling emotional character are currently in full swing.  In my “ideal life” I would routinely wake up with the sun as the day is beginning (Dad, you can go ahead and laugh) while having a cream & sugar filled Rae Dunn ‘good morning’ mug of coffee as I have quiet time with the Lord and reflect through writing.  Unfortunately my reality tells a different story starting with the true fact that I could sleep like it’s an olympic sport along with the whole wife, MOM, teacher and coach mixture, so here I am writing my first post in two years.Read More »

Seasons.

Without any surprise it’s been a while since I’ve written, but today more than ever I feel like the only appropriate therapy is to release all of my current emotions and break the silence.  This Earth is completely knowledgable of four particular seasons, but the older I get the more I learn this life abounds far more than a mere four.  I’m reaching the state of vulnerability and complete honesty in saying that I’ve been amidst the season of a storm that is full of dark and heavy crashing waves.Read More »
