1. Letter from Berlin: The Lessons of History and the Heresy of Racial Superiority by Dr. Albert Mohler
Back in April, I shared the first 1/3 of my 2017 monthly spreads. Here are my spreads for May-August.
On this day last year, I was in Louisville for our embryo transfer.
It’s crazy to think that this was just a year ago, and now those tiny embryos are 4-month-olds. God is good!
I think it’s time for another basement room reveal! How about it?
If you’re new here, I’m slowly working my way around to posting pictures of our house. It’s nothing fancy, hence the name – The Krampy Shanty. In fact, it’s like the opposite of ‘fancy’ since we bought this house as a foreclosure for $49k in 2014. It was (surprisingly) move in ready, but we did some changes upstairs to add value, along with finishing out most of the basement! We’ve put about $19k into these renovations and doubled our finished square footage.
I revealed our new playroom a few weeks ago. By far the biggest and best addition to our new space! And now it’s time for our master bedroom reveal!
You might have seen me post on Instagram last week about these delicious chocolate peanut butter crunch bars. I’ve made several batches of them and I think I’ve finally made them just right.

It’s hard living so far away from all of our family, but we’re thankful that our moms have both been able to make the trip up a few times this year already! Here are some pictures from those visits!
Finally. Some basement pictures!!! Matt and I recently did some $19k updates on our $49k house, The Krampy Shanty. We finished out most of our basement, adding 5 more rooms. Don’t get your hopes up too much though, because this room is by far the biggest and best room we added! Well, I mean… the second bathroom is pretty high up on the list too, but the playroom still takes the cake in my eyes!
We’re back! You might not have noticed our absence, but Cara & I both took about a month off from blogging. We wanted to fully enjoy the summer, and both of our families happened to be reevaluating how we use technology & what ways we can step back from spending so much time on our phones, on social media, and generally staring at screens.
