Here. Pregnant. Living Lent.

Freshly harvested heirloom chicory leaves from my garden!

I feel like that title catches all.
Do you?

We are doing very well.

I'm (apparently) quite pregnant.
Or to quote an observer: Well! Don't you look like you swallowed a watermelon!

Lent is in full swing. I just feel like it is so real this year. Had a preterm labor scare - come to find out our eggs were bad (bought at a national chain store, national brand - better believe I was at market bright and early Saturday for local eggs)!!! Just a good ole' case of food poisoning last week. That scare has totally shifted my outlook on my last two 41-week long pregnancies. Thank God for healthy, full-term babies. After last week I will be so grateful for when I hit 37 weeks!

Hoping your Lent is full of depth, learning, reflection and grace.

Please join me in praying for all the men that will be ordained priests this year. Come Lord Jesus, fill their hearts and light their souls on fire for you!


  1. Yikes! Food poisoning from eggs?! That's scary. So glad you and baby are good now!

  2. I second what Jen said! ew.

    Also, what do chicory leaves taste like? They *sound* delicious!

  3. WHoa! Glad to hear sick passed and all is well.

    And- Fresh chicory?, that is awesome. I am confused tho- can you clarify, I thought chicory was like a nut or a bark or something that gets added to the yummy coffee y'all drink. Mmm. And- it Snowed here today, we have a little while until we're seeing green. By a little while, I mean Wednesday cuz it's Colorado. Take care mama!


So glad to hear from you! All conversation is welcomed, within good reason and kind intentions.
