Here we go...

So, I decided to start a blog this year. I am doing this mostly for me because I feel like I am so much better able to process and internalize things when I write them out. I intend for it to be musings from me and some funny little kid stories and some pictures of our family and some more thoughts. It really is more for me than for you. But, at the rare possibility that I might write something interesting or be going through something you are going through or have gone through, I thought I’d let you know I am starting this. Because of the weirdness of the internet and it’s public-ness I have decided to use initials or nicknames to describe family members. I am not really sure why honestly. I have seen other intelligent people do it though, and I am sure they have a good reason. I trust their judgment. Luckily, everyone in out family has a different first initial. And we didn’t even plan that!

All in all, I really enjoy living life in community with others. This journey I am on of trying to follow Jesus with J and our two toddlers in tow is proving to be interesting enough, so far, thus the title of the blog. I’d love to have you comment and correct and challenge and encourage and laugh with me if you’re willing. Thanks for being our family and friends, and therefore our community.

So, here we go.


  1. Hey Erin! I'm not the best at keeping up with my blog, but I'm excited to read yours! It still takes me like 30 minutes to get the pictures on and in the right places...and you can imagine how often I get to sit at my computer for 30 minutes! This is a beautiful picture of your family! Can't wait to see more!

  2. Glad you started a blog. You will love being to capture all of the memories that you have with your family.

  3. Welcome to the blogosphere! I will definitely link. Can't wait to keep tabs on you guys. Love your family!

  4. What an awesome idea. I really love your mother's heart and find you to be a fabulous example of a woman, wife, and mother to us all. We need more people with your heart of integrity showing us how it is done! Thanks for being so open about your life. Love, Mary Robin

  5. Hey Erin!

    I'm so glad you are starting a blog! I guess if I had a real exciting life that others might want to read about I would start one too! :) It is a great idea. A lot of my family and friends (it seems like everyone really) have a blog and I frequently read theirs. It is a great way to share ideas and memories.

    Your family is adorable!! I am so glad to have found you and hope we can keep in touch. I went to CCC but never ran into you there!!? It is a small world!

    Say hello to your family for me. I look forward to reading more about your journey.

    All the best,

    Jenn Western

  7. Hey Erin!
    I'm so glad you are doing this. I so have been wanting to start my own blog, but I guess I will have to live vicariously through you. I have all ready included your blog under all of my other tones of favorite blogs out there. Have fun with it!

  8. I'm glad you finally started a blog! You'll love it!! :)
