a blog about adventures in early marriage, the effort in making a house a home on a budget, the unexpected struggle of infertility, an exciting twin pregnancy, a surprise second pregnancy, adventures in doing preschool at home ~ really this is just a blog about where each season of life takes me!
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. ~ Proverbs 3:6
We usually try to do a daytrip the
Saturday before Memorial Day.Last year
we drove up to Lake Michigan and had a beach day, but it was way too cold for
the beach this year.
Instead of putting our toes in the
sand, be put on some tennis shoes and headed to Turkey Run State Park for a day
I love Turkey Run!It’s about an hour and half west of where we
live, but it has some of the best hiking trails in our area.Most of the trails are pretty easy, making it
a really nice park for families, but they also have more rugged trails for
those who prefer a little more of a challenge.The park is not as large as some other state parks, but the beautiful
scenery and the well-maintained trails that are easy to navigate make
the park a real gem.
The weather was cooler than average
on Saturday, which made for great hiking weather.After picnicking at one the many picnic
locations in the park, we spent the remainder of our time hiking.We spent several hours on the trails, hiking
about ten total miles.
Welcome to Loving Life! I'm so glad you stopped by. This blog has a little bit of everything. The intent of creating this blog was to journal the everyday experiences of life, creating a space that reflected my life's journey. My first post was in 2011, when I was still in the newlywed phase and a first-time homeowner. Much of those early posts were about our adventures in marriage and numerous frugal DIY projects. A few years later, this blog became my personal outlet, as I opened myself up and shared about our struggles with infertility, our exciting twin pregnancy and our how our plans to adopt were changed with a surprise second pregnancy. Being a new mom meant that my posts soon revolved around early motherhood. Currently, I'm the mom of three kids, four years old and under. I enjoy homeschooling our kids for preschool, so you'll find a little bit of that here too! It really is a hodge-podge of LIFE on this blog! If you like what you see while you're here, I invite you to leave a comment or click the follow button follower, and then invite your friends to do the same.
I'm just a girl who enjoys being creative. My three men are my world! I'm truly blessed to be a wife to an amazing man and a new mom of twin boys. In my spare time I love reading, thrifty shopping, home decorating, cooking, scrap booking, and blogging about this little thing called life!
