Family Traditions

Posted by savannahkase on November 27, 2015 in Current Events, Parenting, Personal, Second Child |

When I reflect on my childhood, which was generally glorious, I have a special soft spot for my family’s various traditions. Some continue to this day – for example, my parents still spend Thanksgiving dinner going around the table and asking each person what he or she is thankful for that year. Others have faded […]

Cousins!

Posted by savannahkase on December 13, 2014 in Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy |

“God made us cousins because he knew our moms couldn’t handle us both!” – Unknown Siblings are one of life’s greatest blessings; my sister has been a lifelong best friend, playmate, confidant, teammate, supporter, and inspiration. Still, even the closest brothers and sisters experience unavoidable rivalries and jealousies due to competition for family resources and […]

Posted by savannahkase on November 27, 2014 in Parenting, Personal |

Happy Thanksgiving!  My family’s holiday tradition is to begin our decadent supper by going around the table and each saying what we’re grateful for, so I always try to spend a little time ruminating on my bountiful blessings in advance.  This year, I thought I would challenge myself to come up with thirty discrete things […]

Today is my husband’s birthday, which seems like a good excuse to openly express my appreciation for all that he is and does. At this phase in his life, my husband is struggling to define himself.

Family Reunion: Lessons in Love

The Other Side of Christmas

Posted by savannahkase on December 16, 2013 in Parenting, Personal |

Growing up, I loved Christmas. I suspect most kids do, and for mostly the same reasons. December brings the second longest school break of the year, often filled with a vacation to see far-flung family.

So Thankful

Posted by savannahkase on December 1, 2013 in Personal |

I try to live with an attitude of gratitude (cheesy though it sounds, it is the true secret to happiness) and every year on Thanksgiving I feel overwhelmed by more blessings than I can count. Even so, spending this first Thanksgiving with my husband and son was truly something special. Unfortunately, although Thanksgiving is – […]

Faith, Hope, & Love

Posted by savannahkase on September 9, 2013 in Parenting, Personal |

My husband, son, and I went to a street festival yesterday with some of our new-parent friends and, after maneuvering our strollers around the food booths, performance stages, and craft stalls for a couple hours, we agreed it was time to get out of the chaotic crowds. By the time we had gathered four couples […]
