making the trek

Trekking through life: Faith, family, friends and a whole lot of coffee!

Where I introduce myself… August 31, 2011

Family Photo sesh Oct '12

Family Photo sesh Oct ’12…….love this pic, but maybe this year we will update it!  Maybe.

I’m Tracy.  Married to my high school sweetheart with 4 awesome kiddos (all gingers!) who routinely bring out every named emotion (and a few un-named ones) in me, especially the older they get.  Somedays I truly long for those 2 year old temper tantrums versus these fledgelings preparing to venture out into their own lives!!

I “found” blogging as my therapy dealing with life’s challenges  several years ago while raising 4 young children and doing my best keeping our life “normal”  while our family and our marriage experienced a tremendously difficult season.  Writing helped.  Teamwork helped.  God glued us all together and we made it through.  But THIS is not about THAT.  In THIS blog we ALL have a journey and we ALL have our crosses to bear at some time in our life.  How we accept those crosses molds us forever.  While I touch on our family’s past from time to time this is more about my own ramblings and processing of our life’s journey:  marriage, family, careers, balance or lack of…. and all the outside influences–basically how we do life!

I love coffee, my family, my friends, reading, paddleboarding, the beach, naps, Instagram and podcasts. Not necessarily in that order!!

We’re all making our own trek in this life, thanks for stopping in and don’t forget to “Follow” and keep up with us, because in my “free time”  I keep adding stuff and you wouldn’t want to miss out!  😉

    I finally was able to get to your blog. I’m so thankful.

  2. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog and checking out my squash casserole recipe. I am enjoying reading your blog. You are a very strong woman………Exactly like my Aunt Shirley who passed away in April. I always admired her tough-as-nails personality and her ability to raise 2 boys, one heavily developmentally disabled for 7 years while my uncle was away in the same circumstances. After he came home, they rebuilt their life and if she had lived until July, they would have been married 60 years. I don’t believe in coincidence and I don’t want this chance to get away………I look forward to reading your new posts! KK
