I’ve wanted a family library stamp for years now. Finally ordered one.

#

Prepping for the upcoming winter school session.

#

Aiming to get 12k more words written in my novel before the end of 2022. 🤞

#

Backyard basil.

#

20 years. 🥂

#

Doing the obligatory family field trip. …Daughter’s a senior in high school and we realized she hadn’t been here since she was 6 weeks old, and her brothers never have. Oops. Bad Texans.

#

The end of Hamlet, when almost everyone is dead. (If you’re in the Austin area, go see The Baron’s Men perform it!)

#

Spooky season? I’m a fan. Indie bookshops? A fan. Spooky season and indie bookshops? Big fan.

#

As seen in the school library where I host my English class. …Nine of the authors we’re reading this year.

#

Friday afternoon office. I love this coffee shop 200 steps from my front door. There’s something (literally) sacred about living locally at the speed of life.

#

I found the Luke Danes of Costa Rica and I don’t hate it.

#

From Italy to Costa Rica. So much to love about this world.

#

When Charlemagne commissioned this Benedictine abbey to be built in an Italian field where his arrow landed on a plant that ultimately healed his soldiers after praying for God’s guidance, our country wouldn’t even be a fragment of an idea for 900 more years.

#

Yesterday I was at St. Benedict’s monastery in the hills outside of Rome. Thinking of painting a replica of this somewhere in our house.

#

At the airport, heading out to do one of my absolute favorite parts of my work. An honor to lead people through sacred places for such meaningful life moments.

#

When it’s so hot the only remedy is water, but also when water parks bring on sensory overload and you’re in the middle of a good book.

I’ve been going to Adoration every Wednesday morning for the past four weeks, and I never realized how much I needed this in my routine.
