for the words

 writers, bloggers..... sometimes they have the words

the words that are lost. they meet you where you are.

sometimes words are found on a blog that have been lost for years. searching for a way to be expressed. then suddenly they find you.

blogging is a beautiful thing. stories told, feelings shared, heartaches spilled.
inspiration given, friendships formed.
all lovely.

memories captures. smiles frozen in times.
feelings bottled up and shared.

in moments of sadness, a stranger can meet you where you are. The middle of the night tears can be related to through a simple computer screen.

joys can be celebrated.
little people can forever stay small in time through this space.

words and feelings can make us better. they can be balm on our aching souls.
they can be what holds time still as we keep moving forward.

  2. Beautiful, captivating images. No words are needed:)

  3. Those sweet little faces melt my heart every time. Thank you for sharing them with me tonight :).

  4. always in love with your sweet words. thank you thank you. :)

  5. I have found so much encouragement from reading others thoughts in this blogging community! Love how you have shared that here.
    And your babies are just absolutely adorable. :)

  6. You are such a beautiful soul, Casey... I love reading your words and I always look forward to a blog post from you. :) I'm a big fan of John Mayer, too! :) These pics are just adorable! Aiden looks so much like you and Apple looks so much like Chris. I think Ainsleigh is a good mix. :) They are precious!

  7. Your kids radiate pure joy.
    What beautiful, little souls they have.

  10. Your kids are absolutely beautiful Casey!!! You are so blessed mama. I just finished "a beautiful offering" and adored it. Thank you so much for taking the time to recommend that to me. I felt like I really connected with the author and may read some of her other books:) Thanks!

  11. That is so so true. And it is one of the reasons why I was so drawn to reading blogs for years before I started my own. These photos of your kiddos are adorable! Absolutely adorable!

  12. wht you write and share are some of the reasons i still blog.

    lovely photos

  13. Ainsleigh's expressions are just the cutest and little Apple is getting so big! Beautiful kids, beautiful post.

  14. Beautiful pictures! Not to be weird, but I had a dream the other night that you and I hung out. I woke up thinking we were best friends. :) If only I lived closer, maybe we could have our kids hang out together and we could chat. :)

  15. simply beautiful. I think I say that every time I comment but it is so true. Your words are light and airy yet hold so much meaning!

  16. wow. this is just too much cuteness!

  17. I read this and ordered the little squirrel print right away. What a sweet reminder! He does lead us and it is so refreshing!

  18. your children are absolutely precious! did you take these photos? if so, your seriously amazing!


  19. I love what you say here. Through blogs I'm able to read the words that people often don't say outputs and it has been so meaningful to me.

  20. It's so true...I never knew what blogging would do to me until I started doing it. I hope I never stop.
    And tell your kids to stop growing already; they're getting so big so quick!

  21. That's exactly how I feel, Casey. I grew up where my parents hid from technology and claimed it was a waste of time. I felt guilty when I started a blog...that this was useless and meaningless business. And soon I began to see blessings from it, much like the ones you described. And I was able to see past the negativity and see the good, balancing it in my world. It's a much better place to be. Thanks for sharing, friend.

  22. Such sweet words. And OMG it's ridiculous how beautiful ALL three of your children are!!

  23. Omgoodness your little Apple is the first of your babies to REALLY look like Chris...they are all just gorgeous!

  24. The little blogging/instagram community I am apart of is such a beautiful one, full of SO much support from mamas that i know will be life-long friends. Blogging has made me a better mama, wife, friend, and teacher. I am so thankful for it.

    xx, Amanda

  25. That is such a beautiful post Casey.

    I am glad and thankful I was able to connect with you through your words, and through mine.

    xo xo

  26. And your words are always so well written. What a gift!

  27. Beautiful depiction of love - through a child's eyes!

  28. super cute photo shoot ;) they are really growing up ... bittersweet how that happens?

  29. i cannot tell a lie - looking at these gorgeous shots honestly made me happy to be alive for a few seconds. they just have so much awesomeness in their eyes!

  30. Oh my goodness, they are absolutely adorable! I found your blog through the $1,500 gift card giveaway (I would use the money towards a new MacBook) and I am so glad I did, I love it and I am now following you! Happy Valentine's Day!
