If a picture is worth 1,000 words. . .


Easter Sunday with Mom and Dad“Can we have more pictures, please?” “I know you’re really busy, but do you think we could see a few pictures of Chloe sometime?” “Did you send those pictures to Nan and Pop, yet?” “You know, you should really be getting pictures of this!”

Wow! I knew that having a baby would mean sleepless nights, buying diapers and becoming an expert at impromptu songwriting (we even sing through dinner time – whatever it takes to get those peas down!) , but I had no idea it meant becoming an expert photographer!

Thankfully, I have two amazingly talented sisters who would love to have a camera permanently attached to their right arms, so I feel like I have my own personal photographers when they’re around. But, we do live about 220 miles away from them. Not to mention our wonderful church family back in West Virginia who are about 400 miles away, and who, without their prayers, our daughter might not be here today. They deserve to see some pictures of our cutie and hear how we’re doing every once in a while, don’t you think? It’s somewhat of a challenge, though, to fit picture taking in with the rest of the things that have to be done.

After thinking and debating with myself (I tend to do that a lot!), I decided the best way to keep my family and closest friends all happy was to start a blog. The sad secret is, though, I started this blog about 4 weeks ago, and even told people about it! But, here’s only my first post. And, I’d say it’s long enough. Because if a picture really is worth 1,000 words, how many words would this post be? 🙂


About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!

  1. I love your blog, Kim!! Great job! And the picture is adorable. =) Chloe looked like a little princess on Easter.

  2. Yippee, I can see your blog now!! We have a blog too. We have friends and family in OH, FL, Iowa, WV . . . all over that look at it. It’s the easiest way to keep everyone up to date I think. You should check it out. 🙂 I don’t do a great job of updating either but I’m getting better. 🙂

  3. Great start to your blog, Kim! So sweet of you to give recognition to Dad for helping with the flooring! And you and Chris are doing a wonderful job with the house! Congratulations…new home owners!!!!
