The Land of Dreams and Fairy Tales: Terra Studios

One reason why I wanted to start this blog is to share the fun adventures that my family enjoys.  Almost every weekend from Spring to Fall, we load up the car and go on day trips.  Being a one income family, we have learned to maximize the local attractions.  My friends are always amazed with how we have so much fun for cheap to free.

If you are in Northwest Arkansas, I think you will enjoy this series.  Keep watching the NWA Day Trips category.  Also, things like this will be tagged as #familyadventures #onabudget and #48walks.

Hope in a Broken World

My husband found me in the closet on the floor—crying.  It is not uncommon…really…if I am honest.  I can be dramatic.  This night I was spent.  One too many things had went wrong with the day.

He walked in.  And then he walked out.  Then he walked in and sat beside me in silence.(So thankful he loves me.)

Finally I said, “Everything is broken.”
