Welcome / How This Blog Came To Be

I had been thinking about starting a blog, but I couldn’t seem to come up with good enough reasons to do so or a good title or a good design. I spent many hours trying to set one up and I did, mostly, but it sat for a long time (years!). There were things I thought I could share like our Rose’s adoption, homeschooling, college choices for our older kids, etc. Not until our second daughter entered a cloistered monastery did I try seriously to hit go. That was two and half years ago and I’m not totally sure what happened or what didn’t happen. 🙂

I did begin sharing her story on Instagram and Facebook and that is what is now posted here. All copied over for those wishing to find the older posts or for those not on social media. Thanks to my fifteen year old for making it happen!

I hope to share about the other things now too. In spite of me and my simple, average, sometimes lazy, sometimes unorganized ways, we’ve witnessed some beautiful fruits of this life we’ve chosen. Homeschooling a large clan like ours, being active at our parish, participating in far too many activities including sports, and trying to be good friends and neighbors can get crazy. Maybe we can be an encouragement or maybe people will think we’re plain nuts. Either way, here goes. Hitting publish. Finally.

P.S. I know part of the reason I have hesitated in making these writings public is my tendency to make grammatical errors. I truly wouldn’t mind a friendly correction if you see something. Shoot me an email. 🙂

  1. Thank you so much for starting this blog, Erica! You and your family are an inspiration to me. I’ve followed your posts about Sister Marie Elizabeth on Facebook and Instagram, but re-reading them here made me cry all over again. She is and always has been such a beautiful person, inside and out. Keeping her and your family and all religious in my prayers. More about the cow and other funny stories please!!
