Breathing room.

Life has been hectic. Busy. Full. A four year old turned teenager. Ten month twins crawling, climbing. Hubby’s work. Buying a house. Moving, but also settling. All the stages and new phases happen so quickly in this season of life. One second I have breathing room, the next I’m going non-stop. The blog, the crochet, even the camera (thank goodness for a phone!).. have been pushed to the side to give complete focus to three little boys. The days. They are tiring. They are rewarding. They are difficult. They are joyous. They are full of life. In it all I try to find the simplicity and beauty of the now, the new, and the what’s to come.

We want more than this world’s got to offer
We want more than the wars of our fathers
And everything inside screams for second life”

Playing Catch Up! Part 3- The Hook

Finished project: I’ve been into hats recently, though I have to find just the right pattern otherwise I lose interest pretty quick. This beautiful pattern has been hooked a couple times now. Love the stitch.IMG_7958In Progress/Almost finished: My Granny blanket is in it’s final stages, finsihing the border, weaving loose ends. Hopefully I can have a post dedicated to this little lady in the near future!


IMG_7961Just Begun: On to something new.. I really shouldn’t allow myself to start on another something before I finish the previous somethings.. BUT, I just couldn’t help myself. Not much to speak of or see yet, but here’s the start..

IMG_7959And one item to say goodbye to: We had the unfortunate experience of having our stroller and diaper bag stolen recently. We have forgiven and let be, however we still mourn the loss. In the bag was Isaac’s much loved Spider Man hat I had recently finished for him..


Playing catch up! Part 1- Using the Force…

Back in September my Isaac turned a startling FOUR years old! We worked out a theme with his latest obsession.. Star Wars. Though his introduction and knowledge of Star Wars comes entirerly from Lego Star Wars and Angry Birds Star Wars. Pinterest was my helper. Seriously. What did we ever do with out Pins? My lovely husband and family lent their creative genius too. We ended up with a party that would make George Lucas proud. Even Darth made an appearance.

Let the wind fall wild across my path
IMG_7136Even though we barely move, there’s no turning back
There is a river, there is a road, place of holy riches untold
It’s where I’m supposed to be… my heavenly
I know it never feels right to let go of the safety we’re used to holding so tight
But there’s a lion underneath these skies
IMG_7126Though love cries, love will rise… my, my, my heavenly
So fly me higher, higher, hope fill me, keep me here
Love Lion, my, my…
So when I’m lonely or when I’m old, life is more behind me
All the stories have been told
IMG_7150I can fix my gaze up through the clouds
Where I’m gonna be, where I’m gonna be… my heavenly

I got my mojo back!

IMG_6742My fingers have been itching to feel some soft yarn again. To get back into the groove I’m hooking some big ol’ grannies. Something easy so I don’t have to think and can just pick up and continue if I have a small bit of time. I’m keeping it interesting with a variety of colors. These warm grannies will eventually be joined into a throw for the cold winter months.



Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name

IMG_6533The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again


Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

IMG_6665Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name


Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name


You’re rich in love, and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find


Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name


And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore


Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name.

Guess who’s back?

Sara’s back.

Or I hope to be off and on. But in reality my life has entered a new phase, a new season.. A season that leaves me breathless with excitement at times, that leaves me exhausted, that is pure beauty, and completely overwhelmingly busy.

My two beautiful twin boys entered this world in screaming fashion on May 25th, 5 weeks before their due date. Jack Andrew came first at a whopping 4lb 12oz and Ben Timothy burst out 2 minutes later, 5lb 1oz. Healthy for the most part, but needing the NICU for a week to get weight and feeding issues under control. It’s been wonderful. It’s been tiring. Twins take a new kind of energy that’s for sure!
