Quick Takes

fifty-seven Weeks.

May 30, 2014

The hours until my wedding are whittling away. And let’s be honest, did you really think you weren’t going to get at least one more post out of me before the big day? With the hours fading and my mind surprisingly calm, I wanted to take a few minutes to jot down some of my last…


quick takes: seven Posts?!

February 28, 2014

For this week’s edition of Quick Takes, I decided to cultivate a little gratefulness in my life. What are you grateful for this week? My list is below: {one} The blog. I’m grateful that I decided to take the 7 posts in 7 days challenge and write. It has felt incredible to log in, sit down,…


secrets of the Posts.

January 17, 2014

Remember how I kept my relationship a secret on the blog until I was engaged? Well, that doesn’t mean that Anthony wasn’t here, inspiring so many things that you read. Before I forget them all, I want to take some time to explain some of the secrets behind the blog, some of the things God…


quick takes: hiatus inducing Edition.

September 27, 2013

{One} So…I decided. The blogging hiatus is coming. Maybe that is stating it too strongly since you’ll still be getting two new posts from me every week. However, the direction of the blog is changing, namely, you likely won’t see the Quick Takes anymore, and my participation in the Not Alone Series will be more sporadic.…


quick takes: late night Edition.

September 20, 2013

{One} Perhaps I really should not write Quick Takes late at night, goodness only knows what kind of things will come out of my fingertips and this late hour (and after the third straight day of 12+ hour days!). Suffice it to say that this week of kicking off faith formation classes has been a little…


quick takes: super behind Edition.

September 13, 2013

{One} Blogger confession: I usually write my Quick Takes by Tuesday night. I just like being ahead, and then if I want to go back and change things, I can. But here I am, Thursday afternoon, and I’m writing this week’s Quick Taken. Can I be honest? I feel like there is a chance coming to…


quick takes: inspirational Edition.

September 6, 2013

This week’s installment of “7 Quick Takes” is simply all of the things that have been inspiring me and making me think as of late! Enjoy 🙂 {One} “We fight one another, and envy arms us against one another. . . . If everyone strives to unsettle the Body of Christ, where shall we end up? We…


quick takes: odd things Edition.

August 30, 2013

I hereby dedicate this edition of Quick Takes to all of the random things I’ve learned and seen and experienced this week, in no particular order. Enjoy! {One} There is actually a blessing for bacon or lard. How did I find this out? Because I was looking through our Book of Blessings at work this week…


quick takes: feast day Edition.

August 23, 2013

{One} It is my feast day today! I like to call today one of my Catholic birthdays because it is a pretty rad day! In case you didn’t know…today is the feast day of Saint Rose of Lima, who is my Confirmation saint and why I refer to today as “my” feast day. She was a…


quick takes: crazy days Edition.

August 16, 2013

{One} Monday was one of the busiest days on the blog ever. What post tipped it over (and set its own new record for most hits in a single day)? If you guessed “dear Husband.” then you would be correct! What was really amazing about Monday was how the post seemed to travel all over the world.…


quick takes: link-up is coming Edition.

August 9, 2013

{One} Why is it that I always come up with the best things for Quick Takes after I’ve posted for the week? Then, when it comes time to write next week’s quick takes, of course, I’ve promptly forgotten all of my brilliant ideas for next week’s quick takes. Such is the life of a blogger, I suppose.…


quick takes: something cool Edition.

August 2, 2013

{One} Well, y’all spoke, and I’m answering! I’ll be hosting a CONVERSION STORY LINK-UP starting on AUGUST 15th! So get to writing those fabulous, crazy, godly conversion stories and come back here to link up on the 15th! I can’t wait to read them!
