so if I’m telling my story…

A story is based on what people think is important, so when we live a story, we are telling people what we think is important.
-Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years
Since it’s my story, I’m not going to be frustrated over the fact that our only car isn’t working, or about how long this season of waiting and looking feels today… nope… this is the story that I’m going to tell.
my story is about…
how much I love this little fall baby…
and how cool his new wagon is….
and how radiant the colors of fall seem to be…
and how great being a mommy is…

and about how maybe we didn’t really think the whole giving a red frosted cookie to a one year old, on a walk, with no wipes on hand…

and about how no matter how much they fight it, the nap will win…

that’s the story I’m going to tell today. What is yours?


  1. Love the pictures, Liv! And I love, love, LOVE that quote...oh so appropriate. I'm so sorry to hear about your car...didn't realize it was still out of commission. Let me know if I can help in any way, ok?

  2. We are so glad that you and Hudson are enjoying the wagon. There is no greater joy in our lives than Hudson. He is such a precision individual.

  3. Hi Liv,
    I love reading about how much you love being Hudson's mom. He is adorable. I have not had time to check in with you for some time, but love reading about "your" story today. He is precious and a wonderful gift from God. Liv, the Lord has blessed you with a beautiful gift of words and creativity. I believe that he is going to doubly bless that gift for you,and I look forward to seeing where he takes you with it. (((hugs)))
