When a little sunshine left Philadelphia | Day 21








Sometimes I forget I live in the middle of the fifth largest US city. We took one last trip with my mom this morning before she headed off to the airport back home to the deep (hot!) South. This morning took us to the Morris Arboretum about a half hour from our house. The wildflowers in this part of the country – even in fall – are just breathtaking.

I’m so thankful for my mom. She came up here with her little Southern self and went exploring with us. In fact, it was quite exhausting for us to keep up with her! She helped me organize a few last rooms and closets while she was here. (Which, for those who know me well know that is the biggest gift of all – organizing something for me!) And we ended up getting a couple date nights and lots of fun chats in my native tongue. Southern. 

We’ll miss her alot. A little bit of the sunny in Philadelphia flew away today. Surely, Georgia is a tad brighter with her back home. But hopefully, we’ll catch her again up here soon.



Pennsylvania Treehouse

The people in Pennsylvania know how to build treehouses!!

The giant birdhouse was the biggest hit. I think both girls would have stayed here all day if it hadn’t been for our needing to catch a plane for my mom!

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!
