I am a follower of Jesus Christ who fails to follow Him well everyday.
And He pours His grace & love on me anyway.
I grew up in the church, 3rd child to faithful believing parents (who had 10 children total!).
I was a know-it-all kid who questioned her Sunday School teacher's correctness.
Now I am seeing how much I don't know.

Blogging is awesome because of all the people out there 
who inspire me to think beyond what I have previously  known.
Bloggers push my borders wider, learning to care about things I would have never seen.

On my own blog I write about marriage, because I love mine so much.
I write about grief, because I have held my firstborn son so briefly.
I write about food & home & learning, because that is what my days are filled with.
I write about my 4 young children who delight & challenge & make this place the Everyday Carnival it is.
I write about adoption as I learn a little at a time.
We are on the road to another child through International adoption.
We are currently waiting for a referral.  We don't know when that will come.  Perhaps in 2012 2013.

I close my eyes almost any time I smile.
I laugh loud.
My hair began to gray when I was 18.
I wish I didn't have such a short temper.

I cook & don't finish the dishes.
I read bits of books & rarely finish.
I have a fabric stash of which I may never see the bottom.
Someday I hope to publish a cookbook, take better photos & get a counseling degree.
It's okay if I don't though.

Let's Not Go Back

p.s.  I am so lucky because I live on the central California coast.  No better place.

I'd love to hear from you - eadamsdesigns [at] gmail [dot] com
