simplysarahcard Saturday Morning Yums.

We have a few favorite pancake recipes, but this one wins for quick and easy.
1 1/2 c flour
1 tbsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp melted butter
1 1/4 c milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
Mix dry ingredients first, then add in the rest. I'm sure you can take it from there... *Sidenote* Scratch pancakes deserve quality (organic) ingredients and Pure Maple Syrup.

Enjoy!

simplysarahcard Sullivan invited me to play Legos with him. "I got you a wine glass in case you wanted to have some red wine." Uhhhhhhh. He's hilarious. I have no idea why he would say that.

simplysarahcard It's true. YOU ARE ALL THOSE THINGS. It's so easy to see those qualities in others and tell them how amazing they are. Qualities that are God-given. They aren't earned and you can't buy them - they're gifts designed uniquely into you. ...AND ME.
It's not as easy to see those qualities inside ourselves. It's hard to tell ourselves we're worthy of being those things sometimes. But it's still true. So today I'll say and believe it. I AM.

simplysarahcard Saying so long to 2014 and all the experiences that made it rich with love, laughter, friendship and fun!
A glance back at the past year...
JANUARY:
Drake turned 6!
He also got to skate on 'Wild Ice' at the Xcel Energy Center
FEBRUARY:
Sullivan turned 4 and we celebrated with a 'Snack Shop' themed party. Perfect for our sweet boy.
MARCH:
The birthdays kept coming with Casey's early in the month and Jackson turning 11 at the end of the month!
The hockey season came to an end, even though winter wouldn't leave.
APRIL:
Casey and I enjoyed 8 days #underthearizonasun just the two of us.
We had fun yelling SURPRISE for a good friends birthday and spent time with some of our favorite people.
MAY:
When spring decided to show up we headed for the waters and spent time with friends on the lake, at the lake and at get-togethers.
JUNE:
Nothing welcomes summer better than hockey school and fishing and hanging out with great new friends.
We also celebrated the marriage of my sister and the love of her life.
JULY:
The summer heat found us in pools, at golf courses and on the beach of Lake Superior, soaking in the sun and fun.
AUGUST:
The fun continued with the annual corn roast, a wine tour, dinner with friends, and more lake time.
SEPTEMBER:
We welcomed a nephew and a niece, took in a Twins game and school started for the boys.
OCTOBER:
Casey and I celebrated 11 yrs of marriage, we stuffed ourselves at a chili-cook off, enjoyed football under Friday Night Lights and welcomed the change in seasons.
NOVEMBER:
With fall comes hunting for Casey and Jackson, the start of a new hockey season and a time to reflect on all we are thankful for.
DECEMBER:
With winter upon us I got out of town. (Hehehe) I enjoyed five days with a dear friend in Arizona, the boys and I cut down the perfect Christmas tree early one morning and we spent time and shared meals with family and friends while we celebrated the birth of our Lord and Savior.

Twenty-fourteen - you've been good to us. We're thankful for the memories you brought to us. So long... #happynewyear #newyearnewmemories

simplysarahcard I am beyond blessed to have friends who invite me to share their life-changing experiences with them.

In the wee hours of this morning I snuck out of my house and walked to the house next door, where the outside light was left on awaiting my arrival.

It was there that I had the honor to experience and photograph the home birth of my friend and neighbor's precious little baby.

After photos, hugs and tears and smiles, more photos and prayers, I walked back home.
As I ever-so-quietly made my way back to bed not long before the sun would light our earth, I whispered to my husband, "It's a boy." I closed my eyes and a smile crossed my face. A smile no one but God could see. I recalled like it was yesterday, the days each of my boys were brought into our lives.
There is no other word.
Blessed.

simplysarahcard Sullivan reeeeeeally wants a dog. Today, he said. He's serious. He wants a dog that's real and big.

We're trying to hold him off by watching puppy videos on YouTube.

simplysarahcard And just like that... It's winter in WI.

The kids wasted no time getting their gear on to play in the freshly fallen snow. Football, cross-country skiing, sledding. It's all happening.

Over 6" expected today.
I wasn't ready for winter, but after seeing the joy on their sweet faces, I am. Welcome, winter.

simplysarahcard This is one of my closest, dearest, best-est friends.
She is marrying the love of her life on the sands of Playa del Carmen this February.
I have the honor of standing up with her as she takes Luke's hand and last name, and begins a whole new chapter in life.

It meant SO much to me to shoot their engagement session in Fargo, where our friendship began 12 years ago. --- I love you @nicolegrund1 xo
