Yay! An 'About' page! Now I can sleep easier tonight. Keep up the good witness!
Wow! You are an incredible woman of strength and character and you are so REAL! Thank you for writing. I am so inspired and I can relate on soo many levels (Catholicism, big fam, nfp, coffee, JPII,etc). God bless you and your family in Italy. How amazing! I wanted to tell you that I was there when John Paul II died. He is my hero. I will keep you in my prayers. Peace, Carolyne
I am living vicariously through you! WOW, Italy! How awesome! I love your blog (from a new blogger in Indy)!
Just discovered your blog and wow! Love the photos and you have such an interesting story on the About Me page! I hope you wrote about your experiences in China, too, as I've been reading about the Christians there. I can't imagine being Catholic and living under their strict one-child policies. I imagine it would be foolish to even get married in China if you were Catholic given the policies---if you accidentally get pregnant a second time, the govt can either force you to abort or take your baby away. Okay, getting off track here, but I look forward to reading the rest of your blog. You really do have a blessed life!
I just found your blog - thanks to your picture of Papa kissing the baby.We want to retire in Italy, so naturally I am insanely jealous. Some people might just say insane. Regardless, I am going to follow your posts.Blessings,Emily
Hi thereLOVE your blog...love sent to you form your newest follower in NY!Can;t wait to hear more abt your trip!Keep up the great work!xoxoxoPeaceChris C
What a refreshing "About Me" section. Such a great witness to God's love. So glad I stumbled upon this blog! Blessings -|-
WOW what an amazing woman you are! Just discoverd your blog and am loving it already. I love your takes on the Pope's leaving and am looking forward to your "coverage" on the upcoming conclave!
I found your site this morning reading Catholic Exchange while drinking my coffee. My husband is military. We have five kids and move about, but I sadly doubt Rome is on our list of stations. I have found your comments refreshing; very catholic and a little feisty. I can relate. God bless you in your work as a daughter of God, wife, mother, and witness to all His sheep.
Jennie-As a fellow Catholic-nut, Jesus-lover, aspiring runner, AND current resident Rome, I was so happy that a friend stumbled across your blog. I'm looking forward to reading more and meeting more American Catholics here in Rome.I had to laugh about your comment about chasing football players... I was after Nebraska Cornhuskers in my day, but now -- by God's grace -- I'm married to an absolutely wonderful, faithful Catholic major in the US Army. We're still trying to figure out parenthood with our 5-week old Isabella.Have a blessed week. Will you be attending Papa Francecsco's Mass tomorrow? I'm still trying to figure out a morning schedule that will allow me to attend daily Mass here in Trastevere.Blessings to you!Kristi
Hi, I just found out about your blog from a couple of fellow FUS-ers, one of whom was with me and your husband in Austria! It's a pleasure to pseudo meet you! This looks like a fun blog, and I'll be happy to follow along. God bless you! ~Betsy formerly-known-as Russell
Came over from Moxie Wife and looking forward to reading more from you. And let me just say how great it is that you said "Hold on to your butts"!Thank you for that blast from the past!!!
Is that a Jurassic Park Reference? Awesome. Hold onto your Butts.
I just found your blog today and am loving it. Your post today ("Let's Be Done") was just beautiful. I have never actually wanted to be "done," and in fact am having a struggle right now with trying to have another baby (I have three girls, 5,3,2), but I can definitely relate to the frustration of having lots of littles. And bedtime? Not my favorite part of the day (until it's over) and usually not my best. I just wanted to say Hi, and tell you I really enjoy your writing.
I can't believe I'm just now finding your blog. Jenna shared your post about contraception "Let's Be Done" and I'm in love. Also, BJPII is my patron and source of reversion as well. Yay! New blog love!
My oldest was born in Sept 2010, second in June 2012, and youngest Feb. 2014. We really ARE similar!
I cannot tell you how much your About Me reminded me of, well, me! Solidarity!!
Is your email linked to your comment? I'd love to respond to you directly, but I can't if it's not!
