A Look Back At 2013

Here I sit just hours away from 2014 all while reflecting on 2013.

It was a good year.

Last January I got on a plane and flew to Washington D.C. to meet an online friend and quickly realized she has become one of my closest and dearest friends. I'm still anxiously looking forward to when either she will come here, or I will go there again. It will happen. But for now, we kept up our promise to text or talk more often than before.

In February, I announced that I had started a new adventure in 2012 of birth photography. This journey into birth photography has kept me very busy, has challenged me to challenge myself more in photography, and has been one of the biggest blessings that I can't even begin to possibly explain. To see brand new life being born is a complete miracle and one that I refuse to take for granted.

Meridian also took a big step of self-weaning in February. It was so incredibly bittersweet for me, but at the same time quite painless because we were both so ready. As I did with her older sister, I wrote a weaning letter to her.

In March, I got to fulfill my dream of going to a Maroon 5 concert and seeing Adam Levine in person! :) I have a bit of a crush on him and thanks to my confident husband (and maybe the fact that I'm no supermodel), my hubby took my teenager self to a concert and I had a blast!

I also shared my very first picture of our dog, Teal in March. Although, I would later have my husband, Chris guest post about her in April!

In April, Zoelle lost her very first tooth and if I'm not mistaken, tooth number four will be coming out either late tonight or early tomorrow.

The month of May was a busy one! Meridian received her first haircut (and then later on this summer cut it on her own)! Zoelle and Meridian both turned a year older (when does time stop?) and as always, I wrote them each a birthday letter.

In June, we went to our annual parade, enjoyed some sunshine, and just relaxed knowing that summer was finally here.

In July, we celebrated the 4th of July, followed only a few days later by our Xiomara's third birthday. We also took a wonderful, relaxing, sun-filled, camping vacation that was pure bliss!

In August, Chris and I had a joint 30th birthday party. We spent the whole day with friends and family who celebrated with us by doing some of our favorite things (floating down the river, supper at a local pizza place, bonfire late into the night at our house). A few days later, Chris and I celebrated 10 years together. I still can hardly believe it has been that long and I feel so blessed to be Chris' wife. In celebration, Chris and I took a few days off for a bed & breakfast trip. Also, I took my favorite picture of Xiomara to date with my iPhone at the end of the month. I absolutely adore it!

September meant the start of school, but not until after we took a wonderful Labor Day trip to the North Shore. It also meant attending another concert, this time to Taylor Swift (hey BFF!). Much of my September is documented in this post that was a conclusion of summer that I posted in October.

November and December have seemingly flown by with both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I turned 30, and realized that maybe it isn't so bad after all (I'm not sure though, still thinking on that one). I also opened up a bit and shared with you that we have had some scary times. Yet, I have seen God time and time again in those times, even if it is through a pair of P!nk tickets.

Now as I look forward to 2014, I can honestly say that I am excited! Excited to see what God will bring into our lives this year and excited to see what God will have us do for others. Long ago, I came across this picture and have since saved it in order to keep this in my mind for the future.

I have one life to live and I plan on using it wisely. Here is to 2014! Happy New Year!

Compass Study Bible Review

Are you still looking for that perfect gift for someone in your life? If you have a friend or family member who is in need of a Bible, I can highly recommend the Compass Study Bible.

With the birth of technology, I have mainly done most of my bible reading on an app via my phone. However, I still miss holding books in my hand, and since I am a visual learner, it helps to have something directly in front of me that is more tangible than my phone.

I like the Compass Study Bible because if you aren't sure where to start reading or applying the Bible in your life, it is a guide to doing that. I also love that it has notes as I am someone who needs an explanation behind the verse.

If you like reading plans, this Bible has a 365 day read through the Bible just for you. One of my favorite parts of this Bible is the topical guide based off of scripture and notes, so you can look up verses on whatever you need for that particular time in your life.

Overall, if you are missing reading the Bible, or need to gift one to a friend, I recommend the Compass Study Bible!

In Which I See God Through A Pair Of P!nk Tickets {And Other Things}

This post is one that has been on my heart for awhile, yet hard for me to get across on paper. I want to make sure I do though as it is important for me to remember.

Part of the reason it is hard for me to get across, is because it is personal. Personal is hard for me. I'm actually quite an introvert and feel as if I only let a few people truly know my heart. It is pretty easy for me to shy away from opening up and sharing as I am so private. Yet, this is one post that I must share.

Financially we are at a tough point in our lives. We've all been there before, right?

The last six months we have been stretched in finances in ways we were not expecting. Not even close. Part of the reason I hesitate sharing is because I am not immune to the fact that we have far more than others. I know we are blessed. I've always been of the belief that we are blessed when we have little, and we are blessed when we have much.

Well right now is a little time in our life. Probably more so than ever before. It has had us stressed and relying on God in a way that we haven't in a very long time.

The awesome part is: God knows and He always provides. Even if it is just to bless us with extra.

In October, a local radio station had a chance to win a pair of P!nk tickets via Facebook. Now, you all know that I love Taylor Swift and Maroon 5, but I also like P!nk. However, hubby loves her music! When we saw she was coming in concert, we talked about buying tickets, but ultimately decided that we just didn't have the funds. By chance, I entered the contest by liking and sharing the picture. Over 2,000 people shared the picture and I won!

I saw God in that moment. He blessed us with a pair of P!nk tickets! While some may say that isn't God, I know it is because He knows exactly how much my hubby wanted those tickets.

Can I also take a moment to share how four simple eggs can show me God? I shared before how our chickens seem to be molting and thus not producing eggs. One particular day I was feeling very down. We had some unexpected news and I was just feeling like crying out, "Where are you God?". It may be crazy, but when I went to collect eggs that day and found four, I rejoiced knowing that God cared.

Perhaps the greatest time in my life that I have ever seen Jesus is through the love of a stranger. Zoelle is an avid learner. She has burned through math books, reading books, and pretty much all of her school. I was desperate to buy new curriculum for her. Like a whole set of curriculum. However, this meant spending close to $300 and we just didn't have that right now. So about a month ago, I sat down after the kids went to bed, figured out exactly what we needed and was going to just buy it with some money we were wanting to keep for savings. Before I bought it though, I hoped onto Facebook, posted on a message board for the curriculum we use looking for any coupon codes. Several people responded and told me that Heart of Dakota will work with people and financial circumstances if you contact them directly (side note: what an awesome company for doing that). I also had two people message me telling me that they were done with that particular level of curriculum and were willing to sell it, but they had to get back to me on a price. They both promised they would get back to me by the following night. I was more than willing to buy used curriculum. One of those two people friend requested me (so we could message back and forth about the curriculum), but I also received another friend request from someone I didn't know. I ignored it all day. I kicked myself the next morning when Chris went off to work and I forgot to send with him the one check I had to pay for this curriculum. That meant we couldn't buy the curriculum during the day, which meant one more day of delay for Zoelle and moving on in school. That evening, I opened up my computer and was browsing Facebook before going to bed when I decided to check my messages to see if the two people had decided on a price for their used curriculum yet. No messages in my inbox, but I happened to see a message in my other folder. Now, I know that other folder exists, but I rarely use my computer these days unless I am editing photos or blogging. So the message did not come up on my phone. When I clicked on it, it was from the stranger who had friend requested me that morning and it said something like this: "I would like to buy the HOD curriculum you need. Please message me and let me know what you guys need. Have a great day! "

I was shocked! We messaged back and forth a bit, and a few weeks ago a package arrived on our doorstep with all the curriculum I will need to finish out Zoelle's school year (and I can use parts of it in the years to come for the other two girls).

The day that package came, I cried tears of gratitude. I'm still crying tears of gratitude. That a complete stranger, not knowing me, or even our financial circumstance would offer to buy the curriculum for us just because she saw my post, is beyond me.

Excited over her new math!

But it isn't beyond God!

I honestly have fought with God these last few months. I'm not going to lie, there are times I have felt that He has abandoned us. That He no longer cared. We have worked hard, been faithful to Him, yet there have been some tough days.

I'm not immune to the fact that there won't be tough days ahead. But, I can look back on them and realize that God is faithful. In both the big and the little, He is faithful.

So while this post may be written for me to remember in the future, perhaps you needed to hear it today. God knows and He cares. It seems cliché, but as I've realized these last few months, it is oh so true!

Pure Happiness!
By the way, the two people who had used curriculum...never got back to me. His plan all along!

In Which I'm A Jesus Feminist {Book Review}

Hi! I'm Vanessa! I'm wife to Chris, mama to three girls, a piano teacher, a worship leader, a birth photographer, a lover of books, and...I'm a Jesus Feminist.

But don't let that scare you off! At least not until you've read Jesus Feminist for yourselves and understand exactly what it is!

But first perhaps you have to understand who Sarah Bessey is. I've been a long time follower of Sarah's blog and I quickly realized I felt like she was writing the words that I had inside me, but just wasn't sure how to say them (or even too afraid to voice them). She is a mum (that's just for you my Canadian friend), a wife, a writer, and a Jesus feminist.

I know that word scares you. It makes you think of a rebel; a "worldly-girl" who refuses to submit. At one point it scared me because I was taught it was wrong to be a feminist. It was wrong to have my own beliefs once married. It was wrong to voice my thoughts (even though they were a part of who God made me). It was wrong to fight for justice.

But really, Sarah puts it best when she says, "At the core, feminism simply consists of the radical notion that women are people, too. Feminism only means we champion the dignity, rights, responsibilities, and glories of women as equal in importance-not greater than, but certainly not less than-to those of men, and we refuse discrimination against women." I breathed a loud "Amen" upon reading that! As a woman and mama to three girls, I so long for this for myself & for my daughters!

But the book is not just about the Western world of women having a voice. No instead it is about fighting for the social injustices of a world that for many is unseen: human trafficking, domestic abuse, poverty, war, sexual abuse, unequal access to education, and so much more.

It's crazy, but this book washed over me a sense of healing. While I read it, I literally felt God heal wounds on my heart, deep down in my soul over the injustices I have experienced as a woman. Even the injustices I have seen during my time spent in Brazil and Venezuela. The injustices I witnessed in D.C., in a small southern Georgia town, the pain I've seen on a dozen women's faces in the Midwest. It's as if God whispered over my soul that He cares. He cares for me. He cares for them. That He sees and that He is using me to fight for them. That there will be a time of redemption for all.

That brings peace. Sweet peace! Peace that I can firmly and confidently rest in. Knowing that He will show me in His time.

So my friends, if you haven't already, go out and buy Jesus Feminist! You will not regret it! Once you do, come back and share with me your thoughts! I'd love to hear them!

Somehow, through it all, Jesus made a feminist out of me!

A Look Back On Our Summer (Yes I realize it's November tomorrow!)

A 36 degree, cool, brisk, October day seems like a perfectly reasonably time to talk about our past summer, right? Perhaps it will warm me up! :)

I live for summer every year. Maybe it's because summer around here is so short, or maybe it's because I truly love sunshine and warmth. Whatever the reason, I look forward to it each year.

This year however, was one of the strangest summers I can ever remember. After the longest and coldest winter I can ever remember, we were looking forward to summer more than normal. Sadly though, summer took the longest time ever to come and it didn't seem to last long enough.

Xiomara, Zoelle, & India (cousin)

We did however try and enjoy it to the full. In June, we had our annual parade that I love and look forward to each year. However most of June was rather cold, so that was a bit of a bummer.

In July, the heat finally came and we enjoyed the 4th, we celebrated Xiomara's third birthday, we went camping (and met new friends), we attended our county fair, and we swam as much as we could!

August brought about Chris' 30th birthday. Since I can never surprise him as he will find out, we decided to have a joint birthday party together (I'm not turning the big 3-0 until December, but shh, we aren't talking about that yet). The guys did their thing (which meant shooting at clay targets), the girls did our thing (which meant floating down the river on our tubes) and then we all met up for dinner at a local restaurant. Followed with ice cream at a local candy shop and lastly a big bonfire in our backyard. It was one of the best times I can remember with some of our greatest friends and family joining us for the whole day! Chris & I also celebrated our 10 year anniversary with a Bed & Breakfast getaway for a few days. I wrote more about 10 years of marriage, here.

This summer however also brought some challenges to our life. I'm not sure I'll ever fully blog about it, but there were some new stresses that were completely unexpected that came to us this year. Ones that took me by surprise and challenged my faith and trust in God more than I can remember in a long time. To be honest, some of these stresses are still here. I can't say I really like that, but then again, it's making me look at God differently and I literally have to wake up each morning knowing that He has everything in His hands and that I can't control it, no matter how much I want to. There is comfort in knowing that I'm not in charge, but also a bit of fear because somehow I feel like if I can control it, all will go well.

So combined with the weather of summer and these stresses, I can say I didn't enjoy it like I should have. Looking back, I'm really regretting that as I do love summer and it only lasts so long.

I suppose since I'm finishing writing this on the last day of October, I can catch you up on our Fall thus far. The highlight of my September was going to a Taylor Swift concert. I've loved Taylor for years and honestly feel like we could be best friends (you know if she wasn't famous). ;) She did not disappoint and bless my husband for putting up with 13 year old me once again!

October has been full of state park visits, pumpkin patch visits, and getting ready for winter. While I feel like fall hit way too soon, we did have a beautiful one.

Now, as I gear up for winter a sadness does come over me. I think part of the reason I don't like cold and winter is that for my life, it's always come with loss. I've lost some of the closest people in my life always in the fall or winter of my life. Both physically through death, and also emotionally through life changes. It brings a sadness over me each year as I think about it. I've also mentioned before that no sun, lots of snow, and cold, do not mix with me. I still don't know why I live where I live and if it wasn't for my husband, I would not be here. So as we all go into the winter season, would you mind saying a prayer for me or thinking good thoughts? I'd really appreciate it!

I hope you all enjoyed your summer and are currently enjoying fall! Catch me up on your lives in the comments below!

Calorease Review

Despite what you may think, I'm always very hesitant to hop on any weight loss bandwagon. For one, I don't want to be jumping from one weight loss product to another to another. For two, I'm still working on being satisfied with the way I am right now. However, I'm still a woman, and I'm human and I know that I do need to lose weight. My main goal in life is to be healthy in what I eat, drink, and also through exercise.

Recently Moms Meet offered me a chance to do a review on a product called Calorease. After doing some research on the product, I decided to give it a try.

Calorease is a stimulant-free and therefore heart-healthy diet aid to help manage weight. It has been shown to bind and eliminate up to 9 times its weight in dietary fat, reducing up to 500 calories a day from the fat in foods.

Here are some other facts on Calorease:

*It's easy to use! Simply take two tablets with a fat-containing meal three times a day.

*If taken as recommended, results can been seen in 2-3 weeks.

*It does not contain gluten, lactose, yeast, wheat, sugar, salt, eggs, soy, dairy, artificial colors, sweetners, or preservatives. It is naturally sourced from grain and is suitable for vegans.

*A 90-tablet pack retails for $29.99

*Calorease is not a license to overeat, nor is it a magic bullet for quick weight loss.

*Stay consistent for best results.

*If you are still needing more information, click here to watch this video on how exactly Calorease works.

So what was my experience with Calorease? Well, I've said it before and I'll say it again, unless I set an alarm, I am very inconsistent with taking vitamins, pills, etc. of any kind. Consistancy is one of the things stated to help further weight loss. However, for the last two weeks I have been for the most part very good about remembering to take the pills with a meal. At the end of the two weeks, I am down 1.5 lbs. To me, this is a positive experience as so far, I have really struggled to even lose 1 lb. It is also worth noting that I had no negative side effects! I will continue on taking Calorease, along with starting a new exercise routine, an in general trying to up my vegetable/protein intake.

An Update From The Chicken Coop

It's been a long time since I did an update on our chickens. If you remember, we started out with eight chickens last summer. We wanted an even dozen, so we ended up getting four more. All throughout the winter, the girls kept laying for us. We got around eight eggs a day, which I considered awesome considering we had the coldest, longest, winter we have seen around here in years.

iPhone pic. Chickens following me on a walk!
Come spring, we had a new challenge in keeping Teal (our dog) away from our chickens. Last year, we let our chickens free range all year. They had four acres to roam, but mostly really liked hanging where we were at. In fact, my husband would always laugh if the girls and I went on a walk through our woods, the chickens would be following along right behind us. Since Teal is a brand new puppy (now 8 months old), we are working on training her. She is my husband's hunting dog and is trained to mainly pheasant hunt, or duck hunt. Thus creating a bit of a problem with our chickens. So we determined that this summer, while Teal is still in training, our goal is to leave them in a huge fenced in area until around 3 or 4 p.m. when they are once again allowed to roam free. It's not my ideal situation for them, and I'm hoping by next summer, we can have Teal so well trained, that it won't be a problem to have them out together.

Thanks to my CSA leftovers, scraps, and some kind neighbors who give us scraps from their garden to feed our chickens, our girls are well fed. This spring, we were getting some of the most beautiful eggs and an abundance of them.

iPhone pic. The chickens come right up to us! This is my personal favorite!
Then this summer we went camping (still have to blog about our summer). A friend has agreed to check on our chickens for us when we are out of town. On this particular camping trip, Teal was at a local dog kennel, so we told our chicken babysitter (Ha! That sounds super funny!) to just let the chickens free range from sun up to sun down. Well, three days in to our trip I got a text that said something like, "Hi Vanessa, has Chris gotten any of my texts or calls? Something terrible has happened." I frantically had Chris call her thinking maybe something had happened to our house. Thankfully, our house was fine, but our chickens not so much. Somehow, all but five survived an attack that we think must have been by a dog. I'm not going to lie, I was devastated! Not only were some of my favorite chickens as far as personality goes, killed, but these were my best layers. The girls too were so sad that all their chickens were gone. I promptly went on Facebook and Craigslist once home in order to get some more layers. Surprisingly, I found 10 more to get us to 15. The transition for them wasn't perfect though, and one refused to roost in the coop and would fly over the kennel. I didn't realize it one day, but she was out and I let Teal out and you can guess what happened. So much for trying to train her not to attack them. Another one got sick one day, laid down and never woke up. We still aren't sure what happened, but I'm grateful we didn't lose more.

However, our girls have pretty much stopped laying. I typically now get 3 or 5 eggs a day, but today got none. I know that the stress can cause a chicken to stop laying and I'm pretty sure that is what happened with many of our chickens, both old and new. Now though I'm wondering if some aren't molting? I often find lots of feathers in their coop and around the yard. Although my daughters and I do 99% of the chicken work around here, I really know very little about them and what to expect from them. So if anyone wants to tell me how long molting goes on for and if they will start laying again, I'd appreciate it! :)

iPhone pic. This one is my second favorite, although she isn't as friendly!

Oh, and before I finish the long post, you must know that my daughters (with the help of their dad), have decided to name of few of our chickens. Hop along Hope (because she has one bum foot), Oreo (because she is black & white), and Cheetos (because she is orange). We all have our favorites, and I'm really hoping they all start laying soon and that nothing more happens to them because somehow, we have all fallen in love with them.

What School Looks Like Around Here

With it being October, I figured it's finally time to blog about our school year. We are one month into our second official year of homeschooling.

Just because we homeschooled last year, did not mean that it was an easy decision for us to homeschool again this year. In fact this year, the decision became a lot harder because I not only have Zoelle to teach 1st grade to, but I also wanted to start Meridian & Xiomara in Preschool. On top of all that, I have a household to keep clean, laundry to fold and put away, and all the other households duties to keep up with. To say I was worried about it before we began, is an understatement. However, we firmly felt that this was the right thing to do for this year. I'll admit though that I'm already looking ahead to next year and knowing that most likely, unless things change, I won't be able to keep up. So this may potentially be our last year homeschooling. It's bittersweet for me to admit that, but I'm just not sure I can do it all.

As for this year, and homeschooling in specific, it is going very well. Zoelle is doing an excellent job and particularly loves math and reading. She also has a community choir she participates in, that she looks forward to going to each week.

Meridian is showing an interest in school this year (which is very different than last year where she showed no interest), so we are working through our curriculum which focuses on learning her letters and the letter sounds. She is showing more and more interest in learning to read, so perhaps she will do so this year.

Xiomara likes to sit and do "school" with Meridian. While she isn't as interested in school as Meridian, she does like to sing her abc's, count, "write", etc.

So overall, life has gotten a lot busier around here, but we are each learning to adjust our schedules and show grace to ourselves or one another in the process.

How is your school year going? Has it been a process of change, or has it gone smoothly for you so far?

Wordless Wednesday: Breathless Sunrise

On blogging {or my lack thereof}

Today is the first day in weeks that I've had time to sit down and actually blog. I've been so busy these last few weeks that I haven't even had time to do my Wordless Wednesday posts. Sometimes, I'm ok with not blogging, but other times my perfectionist side comes out in me and I feel like I'm lacking in keeping a good record of the girls' childhood. Then it hits me that I haven't made a Shutterfly book in years, nor have I made my blog into a scrapbook like I said I would. Sigh...maybe a winter project? At least I have all my pictures organized on my computer.

To be honest, sometimes I feel as if I fail at blogging. I'm not a fashion blogger because I'm not that into fashion, nor do I have the money to put towards me. I'd rather spend that on my house or girls. I don't have a Pinterest worthy home to blog about. Nor am I very crafty. I still find myself struggling to cook gluten free, and we all know I don't meal plan very well, so a food blogger would not be for me.

So where does that leave me in the blogging world? A mom who is blogging about my life with three girls, in three years. A homeschooling mama who isn't sure she is cut out for it. A woman who is so tired at the end of the day, she falls asleep at 10 pm when she used to stay up way past that.

Seeking Peace

Basically, I've been crying out to Jesus a lot these days! There has been a lot of stress and sometimes I don't actually feel like blogging it all out.

It's a pretty eventful, but boring life that I'm pretty sure everyone out there experiences at one time or another! But it's a life I haven't had time to write about, and that makes things harder for me as I de-stress and process through my writing.

These next few weeks I'm going to try and do my best to commit to blogging. I'll try to catch you up on my summer (I'd also love to hear about yours). Lastly, we can talk about Fall, Downton Abbey, my love of Salted Caramel Mochas, what I'm reading right now, and anything else that strikes either your fancy or mine! I'm looking forward to connecting with you all again and gaining back a little piece of my sanity while doing it! :)

Catch me up on your life in the comments! I'd love to hear about your adventures! If you blog, please link me to your blog as I'd love to stop by.

The Fresh 20 Review

I know I've said it before, but I really am one of the worst meal planners in the world. It stresses me out and takes up too much of my time to plan meals out ahead of time. However, this is one area where I so desperately want to get better at! I do keep a good supply of meat on hand, but so many days I have Chris make a quick run to the grocery store for me before he comes home. Not only would meal planning save me time, it would also save us a lot of money in the long run. Thus, early this summer, I contacted The Fresh 20 about trying out their meal plans.

The Fresh 20 is a meal planning service that uses just 20 fresh, seasonal ingredients per week. Each week, there are meal guides to prep the food and recipes for five meals for the week.

Now perhaps summer was not the best time for me to fully try it out as we are gone a lot of the time. I'm realizing that now, and really regretting it as I found it incredibly convenient.  However, what I did try, I was very impressed with. The meals were easy to prepare, fresh, and tasted wonderful! While we eat gluten free, I did have access to the Classic, Gluten Free, and Vegetarian meal plans. While I only used the Gluten Free plan, I did take a peek at the other two and found them to be just as great as the Gluten Free one!

Good news for those of you who are Dairy Free, Kosher, Cooking For One, or needing Lunch plans, The Fresh 20 has just released menu plans for each of those so you will not be left out! One of the best parts of the plan, is that it is very affordable.

Ultimately, after three months, I concluded that The Fresh 20 is way worth it for me and that I wish I would have actually used it more than I did. The only thing I wish they would offer is Paleo meal plans, as we are starting to eat more Paleo based as a family.

So if you are like me and wondering at 4 o'clock each day what supper will be, I encourage you to look into The Fresh 20, as I don't think you will be disappointed in the healthy, quick, easy, meals and the best part is, you don't have to do the planning!

Keep up to date on The Fresh 20 and everything that is happening on their Facebook & Twitter pages!
