Let It Just Be ‘Today’

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on May 5, 2013, one comment

One year ago today, I wrote this blog post: “Today would have been Beth Postlethwait’s 62nd birthday.  That is, if she hadn’t died 11 months ago.  Next Sunday is Mother’s day.  Nathan and I stood in the ‘Mother’s Day Card’ section at Wal-Mart Thursday night.  I was looking for a card for my Mum who I […]

Last fall our church called for volunteers to help grow their youth group.  Nathan, and his brother and his wife and I volunteered, hoping to give back an ounce of support for everything the church has done for Nathan and his family over the years.  Newly renewed ‘regular church goers’, it is nice to be […]

Walking to Work.

Since we moved (23 days ago) I’ve been walking to (and home from) work.  It is about 1.8 miles each way, and takes me about 25-30 minutes (usually 27, to be exact).  The first week or so I spent the walk adjusting – getting used to what bag was best to carry, what route was […]

Dust and Memories.

I am trying to be patient with moving. Don’t get me wrong.  I am absolutely excited about being in our new place.  About being in our new place.  I am not absolutely excited about packing.  Or about unpacking.  But I’m excited to be there.  For the move to be over. We cleaned the house the […]

Because It Has To.

The past 365 days have been a mixed bag of emotions.  Ups, downs, downs, repeat.  Some days we are falling apart at the seams and on others, it feels our stitches are finally healing.  Tomorrow it will have been a year.  So today, today it hasn’t happened yet.  Or, a year ago today, it hasn’t.  […]

Happy Birthday, Beth

Today would have been Beth Postlethwait’s 62nd birthday.  That is, if she hadn’t died 11 months ago.  Next Sunday is Mother’s day.  Nathan and I stood in the ‘Mother’s Day Card’ section at Wal-Mart Thursday night.  I was looking for a card for my Mum who I love dearly, and we realized, that this year, we […]

TwoMonths&ThreeDays

We get married, soon.  Two Months, 3 days, but who’s counting.  I am beyond excited to be Nathan’s wife.  I am really just ready for the day to be here, honestly.  I am finished planning.  I am over the ‘excitement’ of picking things out. I just want to be married. And I will be, in […]

2011 can be Officially Titled ‘The Year of Change and Surprises’.

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on December 31, 2011, 3 comments

As of yesterday I was determined not to do this.  I did not want to recap 2011 in some big, wide open blog post.  It felt vulnerable , and scary.  It’s not as if remembering the events will bring up some sort of emotion that I have not had to already face this year, because […]
