Life is Beautiful

I have never been big about celebrating my birthday- well, past the age of 12, maybe. I felt like it was unnecessarily drawing attention to myself. I felt guilty for making any sort of fuss about it. But this year? I'm CELEBRATING! In fact, I plan to celebrate every year after that too. God has... Continue Reading →

6 Months Later

I was visiting with a friend on the patio of a local coffee shop, when suddenly a piercing loud noise stopped my train of thought. It was noon on a Saturday, the time each week when Oklahoma City tests all the tornado sirens. We looked up and the siren was across the street from us.... Continue Reading →

Love, Levi

Dear Mama, When I was born, I couldn't see very well. But you held me on your chest and kept me warm. I loved the sound of your heartbeat. You went away for a little while after this, but Daddy kept me safe and warm. A few things happened while you were away. They took... Continue Reading →

Stretched Beyond My Limits

As your blood mingles with ours and runs through our veins, our bodies, and our very lives, let it cleanse, restore, protect, and... Continue Reading →

The Night Our Lives Changed Forever

TW: Birth Trauma, Blood Loss, Sudden Infertility The Birth We came in for the scheduled induction at midnight on September 22nd. I slept just a little bit that night.

Why I Write

My name is Kasey, and welcome to my blog. I am married to the love of my life and my best friend, Avery. Most of the images I will use here were taken by him or myself, but mostly him. He is a photographer and a darn good one! Click here to see more of... Continue Reading →
