kristikay Had a delightful day on the horse trails and picnicking with these ladies for our quarterly book club.
You'd never know it was the first time for a few of them. #braveladies

kristikay No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him. 6mon

  •   kristikay This was a candlelight service outside our church. @lightlovers Our pastor was teaching on 1Cor. 2:9 on the Sunday I posted. God is so good. We cannot even imagine what He has prepared for his own. Thanks for your always sweet comments and congrats on your scrumptious baby boy. 6mon

kristikay Sometimes well-meaning folks on the trail inform us of the hazards of tree climbing and how we ought to keep a distance from the risks in nature. #rebelhomeschoolers #LastChildintheWoods 7mon
  •   kristikay Interesting how comments can affect us, Katie. Those comments reveal the little anarchist in me more than cause me to pause, though. I feel sad that more don't delight in seeing children intimate with nature rather than fearful and at an arm's length. @katiesahid 7mon
  •   kristikay Ha! I used to be one of those! A rule giver! @alison_winter We venture off trail now too. That's where discoveries happen. 7mon
  •   kristikay I couldn't agree more, Leah! A park volunteer told us they highly discourage tree climbing. My mouth automatically responded, "How sad." @sangthebird Thank you for the kind words. 7mon
  •   jendydees You go, tree climbers! 7mon
  •   kristikay You made me laugh out loud! @skoiebiggart I wish neither injury nor disease to befall my boys or others, but I think the risks are often exaggerated and worth putting down the media and getting outside! Let's go catch some frogs! 7mon
  •   gorokris What ???? Who would be so silly?? Trees were put on earth for us to climb. I'm sure of it. 6mon
  •   kristikay Yes, indeed! I agree completely. Thank God for trees to climb!! @gorokris 🌳 6mon
  •   annawho Love EVERYTHING about this photo and dialogue! Go kids go! Builds strength, common sense, and creative minds! 4mon

kristikay So I may have mentioned that my romantic husband of almost 20 years never formally proposed. I guess when you know you're soul mates, those aren't always necessary. But tonight he made up for that and got down on one knee at my alma mater basketball game.
I said yes.

  •   kirstenrickert Oh and I just read his shirt! He went to effort and made it special for you. LOVE 7mon
  •   lightlovers Oh my goodness how special!! Such a romantic!! I have the biggest smile on my face thinking about this! Truly wonderful!! 7mon
  •   kristikay Thank you @jennifernaraki He asked an usher! He's so fun!! 7mon
  •   kristikay I can't believe you knew! So you were over when we had this conversation about proposals?? I didn't remember that! I had no idea he would rectify it, and so soon afterward! @olyashepperson He's the cutest. 7mon
  •   kristikay Thank you Brianne! It was incredibly sweet and so shocking. He doesn't even like UCLA. Not a bit. So he really went out of his comfort zone, putting aside all that for me. He's the one for me. @brebuskey 7mon
  •   kristikay Thanks so much! He asked an usher, who was so kind and kept looking at us the rest of the evening, apologizing for taking blurry pictures when we left. @blissfulsoul111 xo thanks for commenting. And Mr. Kristikay! Ha! He got a kick out of that! 7mon
  •   kristikay Aw, thanks, sis. What a kind thing to say! It blew my socks off! He's dreamy. @mandylee89 7mon
  •   kristikay You and me both! @vwvanfam Thanks so much! I love him. 7mon
