What I want, love, have

 ~What I have, what I don't, what I want, what I love ~

Have : 
An immense craving for bread, which I took care after two days of "I probably shouldn't..."
Sourdough bread with a drizzle of honey is heaven.

A husband that spoils me with his love constantly and with his money when he has it. 
I especially love bouquets that come wrapped in brown paper and tied with real ribbon.

Have Not :
A tan. This little girls crisscross lines on her back make me somewhat envious.
She is my little gingerbread girl, and I'm her sugar cookie.

Maybe Have and Maybe Not:
Sourdough bread starter.
After the before mentioned "craving" I decided that I should learn to bake it myself. Following some online direction I mixed up the flour and water and the next morning I had TONS of bubbles. I fed it that night and the next morning a dough volcano erupted all over the top of my refrigerator - I guess things ferment really really well in the west? I'm on day four now...keep your fingers crossed for me - I'm really wanting a cozy fall full of bread and soup. 

Three strapping sons.
The ability to look very domestic and 1950's when I want to.

What I want:
For this amazing kid to have all of his dreams come true - he works very hard.
Brady is doing amazing. Despite having Asperger's Syndrome and severe ADHD, Brady is concentrating and ENJOYING school so far this year. He is becoming kinder and more tolerant of others, he is very social with his family and all around, one AMAZING kid. I'm so glad I am able to keep him home with me everyday and watch him grow.

What I Love:

My kid's sense of humor. Brady drew some hieroglyphics in History class this morning and as you can see, in one of them he is taking a shower after his dad shaved his head. "Don't worry mom" he said, "you'll notice it's censored."

What I Want :
To be crafty again, to learn to sew. I played around at sewing a few years ago but besides pillow cases and simple children's capes...that's about as far as I got! I would love to really really be able to sew.

What I Love:

The way that children accept love so freely. I gave my little apron project to Trin, kind of chuckling at my lack of skill and she said "Oh thank you mom, this is perfect for Charlotte because polka a dots are her favorite and she LOVES the color green." 


  1. I love this post. Fingers crossed for your sour dough starter. I have tried a few times, but honestly can't seem to find my rhythm with sour dough bread. I would love to do more sewing too. I do a lot of crafty sewing, but I would like to do more functional, aka clothes, sewing. I have patterns, and fabric, just need to do it. Love the hieroglyphics :)

    Hope you and your beautiful family have a wonderful weekend.

  2. I wish I were better at sewing too! I got a sewing machine before Judah was born and sewed a lot his first year. It was all experimenting, but I had so much fun. I need to pick it up again.

    And hope your sourdough turns out - it sounds delicious!

  3. Brady's comment made my evening. I'll be chuckling every time I think of it! :)
