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 »

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 »


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 »


I’ll start off saying it’s probably a good thing I didn’t make it an official new years resolution to blog often, because if so I’d have to admit I’ve failed miserably.  Luckily, I only hoped to write more so it’s not quite a failure right?

My best description of life lately would be appropriately labeled as crazy and if you’ve talked to me recently you can testify that I’ve said that word a time or two… or twenty.  My second year of teaching has come and gone; today I already completed my Professional Development swap days for THANKSGIVING BREAK. What? As Ellis Grey said, “the carousel never stops turning.” (and not in the morbid negative connotation she so often meant by this, moreso that time keeps flying by…okay?)  Read More »

Cheers 2014. Hello 2015.

At the close of every year most people take the time to reflect on their past year and I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that 2014 is already past considering I thought 2013 was going to be a huge year to top, but oh was I mistaken.  I was still experiencing a lot of new things in my first job when I found out I was pregnant with McKinlee and that surprise became the catalyst of decision making which included changing school districts and moving to a small duplex to prepare for building our own house.  Read More »
