Hello from Portland.

Hello friends! It’s been awhile and I’m feeling chatty! We are 4 months deep into a new life in a new city and are only now feeling settled and semi-familiar with our surroundings, but we are loving it here! It’s been so long since we updated and I thought I’d take some time and let you […]

Hello friends! As is our fashion, we have yet to give an update on our whereabouts…because we just really like to be difficult. Not really; we just procrastinate. It’s been a little over 2 weeks since we left our tiny Gleanings family, and trust me that was not easy. We fell in love with the […]

Starting small.

This post is written a little after-the-fact but I just wanted to give an idea of what’s going on, up to now. On February 20th, we got the news that we were accepted to the 30 day outreach program in August, and to be honest, we were a little surprised, and a little caught off […]

The weather outside is contradicting itself, as it so often does in Georgia. I’m sitting inside click-clacking away while the sky is all greys, the ground is sopping and yet the birds are singing like it’s the first day of spring. That makes me smile. By way of introductions, I should explain who we are, […]
