Hi! My name is Bekah. I started this blog in 2008 as a way to keep in touch with family, tell some stories, and embarrass my siblings with old photos. I've found that I really enjoy being a record-keeper for our family as our lives progress, babies are born, and homes are made. I like to have a record to look back on as our lives move forward. This little space has seen everything from our wedding to the births of our two sweet boys.
In July of 2008 I married Matthew. His eyes crinkle at the corners when he smiles...I love that. He is a wonderful husband and father, even if he doesn't like when I come home with treasures I found at the thrift store. He is out-going where I am introverted, and he 'gets' my sometimes odd sense of humor.
In Nov. 2009 we had our first baby boy. This is Jack...he looks a lot like his Daddy, and that makes my heart sing. He can be a wild and crazy kid, but he has a sweet and gentle side to his personality. I have learned so much about the world by exploring it with him. He looks just like his Daddy, and has the boisterous personality to match! You can read his birth stories here and here.
Our second son, Luke, was born in October of 2011, and has brought so much joy to our little family. He is such a happy little baby, and we are enjoying the process of watching his personality emerge. Luke looks much more like Mommy, even down to his matching blue eyes, and seems to have inherited my love for people-watching. You can read his birth story here.
We also share our space with a 5 year old lab-mix named Jaco-bear. He panics at the sight of a vacuum but will do almost anything for a piece of candy corn.
This is the tale of our life, it's not always pretty, it certainly has it's ups and downs, but we are blessed beyond measure.
