One of my friends is currently the most beautiful pregnant women. See? I wasn’t exaggerating. If you have been reading here for awhile, you have probably already seen Craig and Christine get engaged, get married, and now they are expecting their first child. Last week we met up for some photos of this beautiful, happy, expectant time.
^^We took one almost like this the day they got married, only minus the snow and the baby bump! Congratulations Craig and Christine – can’t wait to meet that little babe!

Lately, on InstagramAnother day of seeking the peace of wild things with my wild things and OK FINE, I’ll post the whole poem in this comment- just because you [didn’t] ask. When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free. -Wendell BerryThis morning Henry heard us talking about what’s happening around the country, heard it again from our pastor as we streamed church online. So we had the talk, about racism and violence and protest and right and wrong. It is the worst thing that we have to even have these conversations, and the best thing that so many people I know are having them. Nothing is more encouraging about the future than how confused children are when you explain that some people hate others just because their skin is different.
