I'm at (In)Courage Today!!

....You might assume I had started the semi-annual task of updating my children’s closets, but I’m a professional procrastinator, and big projects are my specialty.

You know the drill for the switch: hours of dragging dusty boxes down from the attic, hashing though worn clothes and sorting the current closet contents to weed out what’s needed for the cold winter ahead. I feel a little like George Washington planning and protecting his troops at Valley Forge- except without the white powdered wig and starvation and such. ...

Head on over to (In)Courage for the whole story!

And if you are here from (In)Courage, hey there! Welcome! Have a click around.
Here are some recent posts that might entertain you:
On Motherhood
On Facebook
On Vacation
On my Husband and my love of Harry Connick, Jr.

Or just click around any old way you'd like.
Thanks for coming by!

I just read you Harry Connick Jr. post. Sigh. He's dreamy. And funny.


My husband took me to one of his concerts years ago. It was in a stuffy old "music hall" with a bunch of stuffy old people all dressed up in their finery.

When Harry turned around and shook his butt at the audience, I threw my hands in the air, leapt to my feet and yelled, "WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!"

My husband had to pull me back down into my seat. I think some of the elderly there were a little startled.

I wish he would go back on tour.

Oh, Hillary! Congrats on being featured at inCourage! And what a beautiful post! God is so good, is He not!?! I think with each season, particularly now that I'm a parent, God is really persistent in showing me the wife and mom I'm supposed to be, just in different ways each time. What a blessing that you notice and then share even the small ways God provides for our hearts.

Wonderful post! Love your writing - the serious & the not so serious!

Congratulations! As always your blog over there is beautifully written. The feelings you write are feelings that I feel too, feelings I can relate with. I myself run my fingers over my sons clothes when I change them out because he has grown out of them. I also shed a few tears each time I do.

Hillary, girl, we are so honored to have your wonderful words over at (in)courage today! You are talented, fun, b-u-ti-ful, and someone I would definitely be hanging out with if we lived in the same town! I'll take the next best thing and keep hanging with you here! (:
