Day Sixteen: Love Loses a Little Sleep

Across the street from me is a sweet couple who brought home a newborn baby three weeks ago. Their first child. A little girl. By looking at their house I can tell which room is the nursery. A soft light with a hint of pink. The past few mornings I have noticed the lamp on … Continue reading

Day Fifteen: Love Remembers

A couple of years ago my grandmother stayed the weekend me. Brent was away for a conference. She does this a lot when he is gone. We are good company to eachother.

Day Seven: Love Hears

Day Six: Love Moves In
