for the words

 writers, bloggers….. sometimes they have the words

the words that are lost. they meet you where you are.

sometimes words are found on a blog that have been lost for years. searching for a way to be expressed. then suddenly they find you.

blogging is a beautiful thing. stories told, feelings shared, heartaches spilled.
inspiration given, friendships formed.
all lovely.

memories captures. smiles frozen in times.
feelings bottled up and shared.

in moments of sadness, a stranger can meet you where you are. The middle of the night tears can be related to through a simple computer screen.

joys can be celebrated.
little people can forever stay small in time through this space.

words and feelings can make us better. they can be balm on our aching souls.
they can be what holds time still as we keep moving forward.

    This is super sweet Casey! Some nights in moments of frustration or sadness I can read a blog that feels quite close to home and I can easily find that sense of peace I was longing for.

    You are such a beautiful soul, Casey… I love reading your words and I always look forward to a blog post from you. 🙂 I'm a big fan of John Mayer, too! 🙂 These pics are just adorable! Aiden looks so much like you and Apple looks so much like Chris. I think Ainsleigh is a good mix. 🙂 They are precious!

    Beautiful pictures! Not to be weird, but I had a dream the other night that you and I hung out. I woke up thinking we were best friends. 🙂 If only I lived closer, maybe we could have our kids hang out together and we could chat. 🙂

    I love what you say here. Through blogs I'm able to read the words that people often don't say outputs and it has been so meaningful to me.

    It's so true…I never knew what blogging would do to me until I started doing it. I hope I never stop.
    And tell your kids to stop growing already; they're getting so big so quick!

    That's exactly how I feel, Casey. I grew up where my parents hid from technology and claimed it was a waste of time. I felt guilty when I started a blog…that this was useless and meaningless business. And soon I began to see blessings from it, much like the ones you described. And I was able to see past the negativity and see the good, balancing it in my world. It's a much better place to be. Thanks for sharing, friend.

    The little blogging/instagram community I am apart of is such a beautiful one, full of SO much support from mamas that i know will be life-long friends. Blogging has made me a better mama, wife, friend, and teacher. I am so thankful for it.
