All about pancakes, well at least all about the Narraway 12 Days of Pancakes. I'll answer a few questions some of you have asked me this go around. Then I shared all 12 days in one post including links to recipes. Last there is a poll where I want to hear from you on your … Continue reading the 12 days of pancakes
Life with the Narrawaggles
One year later… do you trust me?
Over the last week I've been keenly aware of each day passing as we approached today, July 1, 2018... the one-year anniversary of our move to West Virginia. Is there protocol on how to celebrate this type of anniversary? Should I make a cake? Is here a special song that should be sung? Some sort … Continue reading One year later… do you trust me?
PostIts make me happy. I am a Type A person... can't deny that. I function better with lists and use PostIts at my desk to organize my thoughts. If you've been through a recent meeting or workshop with me then you've also fallen victim joined my sticky note madness of different colors, categories, etc. None of … Continue reading PostIts
Generosity and Hospitality
[In many ways this post is WAY overdue and VERY inadequate.] Bigg Riggs Ramp Mustard and a guide to The Appalachian Outpost... yup folks, that right there is generosity and hospitality (with a good dose of humor) rolled into one. The "Next Big Narraway Adventure" has been an overwhelming process on many fronts. But one … Continue reading Generosity and Hospitality
The Next Big Narraway Adventure
It's been almost a month since I wrote this post about our upcoming move. How is that possible? Almost a month has passed?! Micah wanted me to write a "how to move your 10 person family 7 hours away" post... I'm not sure I have one of those to write. Honestly, Josh should write that one. … Continue reading The Next Big Narraway Adventure
Shine the light
This flashlight... I'm not too sure what to say about it other than it is like the energizer bunny and it keeps going and going and going... No, really. Against all odds it keeps on shining. Its proud owner is my 2 almost 3 year old, Calah. For a year she's had this flashlight, loved it, … Continue reading Shine the light
Up at 6am, trying to be quiet to avoid waking the family, I stood in the kitchen waiting for the heating water to make tea. In the early morning light I wrote, filling in our daily board: notes for the day, jobs, meals... the words hit me kind of hard Not the literal meal, that … Continue reading Easter leftovers
sometimes you don’t know how much you can’t see
Our little Elanor is now the proud owner of her own pair of glasses. She's been in need for a while. Friday was the day of her eye appointment and she was so very excited! Can't you tell?! During her eye exam it was quickly apparent that her glasses were going to have a relatively strong prescription considering … Continue reading sometimes you don’t know how much you can’t see
the temptation of freedom and independence
This little lady... crazy how fast time flies. Doesn't seem possible she is almost 3. But it's true. And, let me tell you, 2 turning 3 is a rough place to be. Growing by leaps and bounds while running into every boundary and falling down along the way. See her face? This is the face of … Continue reading the temptation of freedom and independence
