Kate Morton and My Mom
Well, hello there! This space is getting a bit dusty from lack of use. But, I'm thankful that it is available when I take the time to use it. Isn't that a great photo! That's my mom in the foreground. When she was 19. Come to find out, my mom was a roller d...

Let
Lately I feel like I'm walking a very thin line placed right smack dab between barely keeping it together and everything falling apart. I've been having "spells"-for lack of a clearer term. I will be in a conversation about my mom and her ALS, and I start s...

3 Things I'm Not Doing in 2016
I read Anne Bogel's post this week, and it got my mind a whirring. What we don't is just as critical as what we do.  I was mentioning to Mr. Hippie the other day that some times I feel like I am waiting for someone to give me permission to do or not do some...

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up
One of the most blogged about books (at least in my spheres of being influenced) in 2015 was Marie Kondo's The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up . I, of course, don't jump on band wagons, so it took many, many, many blog posts for me to decide to read the b...

Parents, Teens, Babies-Overlapping Seasons
Many someones have warned young moms that the time with their littles flies so fast. (which is ridiculously hard to comprehend while in the midst of dirty diapers and sleepless nights and endless nursing and all.the.things.) And yet, here I am on the cusp o...

Christmas Decorating, Swedish Meatballs & Our Week
How has your week been?  Mine has been good. Quite busy with cooking and decorating. But so much to be thankful for. Things have been quiet here on the blog. I'm done apologizing for that. I write when I have something to write about, and when I have time t...

Spicy Chicken & Pasta and My Week
I had a great week. How about you? I don't take great weeks for granted as much any more. There are too many variables. That being said-it was a good week. This was week 20 of school. Which means that we are past the halfway point, and almost to 2/3 of the ...

Chicken with Sun-dried Tomato Cream Sauce
Well, it's been forever since I've done a recipe post. That's because I am trying fewer new recipes these days for SPD, and I've already shared a whole lot of my old favorites with you. But, occasionally I come across a recipe that is not new to us and is w...

Strength for the Day
...And as your days, so shall your strength be. (Deuteronomy 33:25) My family ended the year with some life altering news. My mom has ALS. Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge that was all the rage way back in the summer of 2014? The proceeds from that benefit...

New for 2016
I'm not a big resolution maker. And since I tend to make more life changes in September than January, I don't have a huge list of "new". But, some changes have either already dawned or are breaking on the horizon... -New year=new fitness goals. After a part...

Christmas Favorites
I don't know about your neck of the woods, but here in the Mitten it has been unseasonably warm. Which I love. Any day that I can wear flip-flops in December is a really good day. My husband is enjoying the snow free roofs and warmer temps, being a roofer a...

You Don't Know What You've Got 'Til It's (almost) Gone
A really good friend of mine went into the hospital on Tuesday night. She was having some pain and there was evidence of internal bleeding. The word on the street (aka, FB) was that she was going to have some kind of a procedure on Wednesday where they send...

aka Barefoot Hippie Girl
Introduction
I am a wife and a mother of 4. I home school. I run and swim. I write a blog to keep my sanity. I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, mind, soul and strength. I want to encourage others to look to God, the source of my strength, to renew their strength. I want to encourage others to run the race of life, and not grow weary. To keep on walking, and not faint.
