Little Things: Love

I’ve never been much of a romantic. As far as I’m concerned love is definitely not enough. It’s important, it’s filling, but it’s just one piece of the puzzle.

Little Things: Rain

It’s wet here right now. And while I could do without all the mud that gets tracked into the house, I’m not about to complain. (And I would appreciate it if you all would remind me of that commitment if or when this precipitation turns back to snow and we’re buried in the stuff.)

Thirty Days of Little Things: Day One

Since returning from Ethiopia I’ve felt a bit like my wheels are spinning. I have a lot to say, but am unsure how to say it. I have a lot to do, but am unsure how to do it. I’m so small and the world is so big. And yet, I’m so big and the… Read more »

Little Things: Red

I spent much of yesterday afternoon lingering in the hog pens. There’s something therapeutic about being out there and it’s just the comfort I needed the night before heading out for a week and a half. I also applied the temporary tattoos that came with my ONE briefing package to The Small Humans — figuring… Read more »
