hello there.
my name is Lyss
I love coffee and living in the country.
I am most comfortable in my cowboy boots and probably wear them with things I shouldn't.
I love to grow things and have big hopes for our garden this year.
I love to dance and my daddy taught me everything I know about twirling around a dance floor.

I was raised on a farm in Missouri with my three brothers.
My husband is an engineer and after we were married (like a few days after) we packed up my little world and he moved me to Texas where he had began his first job months before.
While I hated living in the city I quickly fell in love with Texas.

Almost two years after we were married we became pregnant with our first, a son and then after he turned one we became pregnant with our second, a girl :) and this past October we welcomed our third child another son.

I stay home with all three of our little ones and it has proved to be a great blessing and big challenge at times.

When I first became a mom I thought I had to have it all figured out and be a perfect mom (I knew everything anyway; ahem)

And now four years and three kids later I am learning to embrace the imperfections and uncertainty and learn as I go.

I have learned that the greatest gift from motherhood is that it draws me closer to my Lord and Savior. The struggles and joys bring me daily to me knees in thanksgiving and confusion.

I don't have to have it all figured out and I will never be perfect.

But it is a beautiful ride and God is writing a beautiful story day by day.

I blogged the ins and outs of our days while we lived in Texas and as my children grew older the documenting of their daily activities became next to impossible.

I love to write.
I journal all day everyday and I have missed blogging so much.

While I don't know what to tell you to expect reading here I CAN guarantee it will be my heart.

There is beauty in sharing and it is something I have greatly missed.

So welcome, I am truly glad you are here.
You are a gift to me to be here reading my words and thoughts.

My prayer for my life, these writings included is that God may be glorified in all I say and do.
