The Journey Continues

I (Michelle) have decided to continue to blog. Maybe I can occasionally get Dane to post something on here since he's such a good writer. But I'd like to keep you updated on our lives, especially those of you that we don't get to talk to very much.

Probably the first and foremost news in our lives is another baby on the way. We've made it to almost 19 weeks and are very thankful! We are meeting with a team of two midwives who are going to be delivering our baby hopefully at home. It's been a fun adventure so far. First trimester brought a bit of queasiness, but if I ate food every three hours around the clock I was able to stave that off pretty well. The second trimester has been surprisingly uneventful besides the growing that I'm doing, and I think some movement is being felt, but this being the first pregnancy this far along, I'm not completely sure.

We're in Nashville, back in our old house. As Dane puts it, there is never a dull moment in our neighborhood. We have quite the eclectic mix of neighbors. I'm working at Siloam again and really loving being back. I work with some wonderful people who really love Jesus and who I'm learning from all the time. Dane has a job interview tomorrow which we are really praying about. We'd appreciate anyone and everyone's prayers for this job too. He's been keeping busy with some construction at the house (I'll include some pictures below) after we had a small fire in our garage (the day after we moved back in!), as well as studying for an architecture exam, working on his website, and starting to write another book. We'll let you know how the interview went.




  1. So glad you're blogging again....and what a great before and after picture. I'd love to see one of YOU too....sideways of course! Love you all and we'll be praying for the interview.

  2. WOW, the 'after' photo looks so good! A job interview - in Nashville? I'll pray!

    Suz and I went swimming yesterday and were wondering how you are doing. We must see you before you have a baby :)

    Love -awp

  3. Michelle, first of all congrats!! : ) So, so exciting! I'm glad to see you are blogging again! It's nice to keep in touch and see what's going on in your life! If you come to SC please get in touch with me!

  4. As usual, I'm a little late at reading this, but hopefully you'll see it. ;) I very much enjoy the blogs and the pictures so I'm happy that it's continuing and for what it's worth, Mich, I enjoy your writing very much. :) I saw the completed garage in person, but I didn't realize the extent of the massive improvement until I saw the pictures together. Wow! Very nice job. I'm sooo excited about the baby and can't wait to meet my niece or nephew! Side note: Chris and I watched Business of Being Born and I totally "get" the midwife thing now. We will talk more about that in person. ;) Hope to see y'all Friday!
