Twas the Night Before Christmas

By Courtney Robertson | December 24, 2012

How do you prepare for Christmas?  I’ve spent a few days in eager anticipation of this mystical holiday.  I love Christmas. It’s a wonderful holiday thought it has little biblical foundation for the season.  I love preparing, putting thought into gifts for others, and gathering with friends and family.  The days between Christmas and New…

Cocoon to butterfly

By Courtney Robertson | December 21, 2012

I’m beginning to think that our family is in its cocoon state of life. We were the caterpillar for a little while. Striving through thick and thin to just stay alive. So now we are sheltered and getting our selves ready for the next step of life. To be a butterfly is to be free.…

Wait Upon the Lord – O Come O Come Emmanuel

By Courtney Robertson | December 16, 2012

How long have you waited upon the Lord?  I mean both in the prayerful state, but also waiting on the Lord to make the connections needed or the provision desperately sought after.  How have you felt about that happening? There are seasons life where we need to prayerfully sit and ponder the matters of the…

Christmas Tea Party

By Courtney Robertson | December 9, 2012

Christmas is a great time to spend gathering with friends.  I’m thankful for my friend Brinn who hosted an open-house Christmas tea party.  I enjoyed the time to catch up with friends that I hadn’t seen in over a year, as well as ones that I see all the time but just haven’t spoken too…

Time for an update…

By Courtney Robertson | December 9, 2012

It’s been a few months since we settled into normal life, and it’s time for an update.  I’ve gotten the site up to where I’d like it to be visually, and functionally.  I’m using this as a fairly plain self-hosted WordPress site so that I can test it for business, but I also am testing…

The Day Has Come

By Courtney Robertson | July 27, 2012

It’s the dream of little girls to be the bride.  I’ve never been much of a girly girl, so the extent of my thoughts involved finding a man to spend my life with, and wearing a simple flowy gown.  I wanted to also spend the week being very girly by getting my hair, nails, and…

Engagement – A new year begins

By Courtney Robertson | June 20, 2012

December 31 2010 was an oddly warm day.  Matt broke out the grill he had just received for Christmas and lawn chairs for a mid-afternoon grilling session. I was busy taking a nap until the food was ready.  Little did I know what all had happened during that nap, or the week before. Despite all…

Adventures Begin

By Courtney Robertson | June 19, 2012

Though Matt has lived in many different places throughout his lifetime, there were a lot of things he hadn’t done. Just after Labor Day in 2010, we packed up for a few days at the beach.  I’ve grown up spending a week in southern New Jersey nearly every summer, so we headed there. The funny…
