Here’s a few random ramblings from the behind the scenes at A Delightful Glow:
First off, we’re a Kansas farm family. Nope, you don’t normally find us on the beach! 🙂 We’re more likely to be on a dirt road or in a wheat field. My sister took these family pictures for us in 2015 when we met them in the Outer Banks and I’m so happy to have them!
Because I’m the blogger and “talker” behind the face of A Delightful Glow, here are some of my details.
I think laughter is important. I can be optimistic and I can be pessimistic. I can be opinionated. I believe in compassion and mercy. I’m thankful for grace, because I mess up a lot. I love Jesus Christ and I strive to have a faith that keeps growing and getting stronger. I’m a fan of marriage and I believe fervently in great marriages founded in Jesus and I believe in commitment.
I wish I wouldn’t be so quick to judge others. I’m most-certainly-absolutely-definitely a work-in-progress. I have fears and insecurities, but I know fulfillment is in Christ alone.
I have this great husband who happens to farm for a living. I’m glad I get to share life with him even though I’m not exactly a perfect farmwife type. I’d rather be behind my camera taking pictures of a tractor than behind the steering wheel of the tractor. But I love our small farming operation and I love having a home in the country for our kiddos to grow up on.
Cause I also have two super-cali-fragi-listic kiddos. I thank God for blessing my man and me with them. They are growing up all too quickly and I feel the moments slipping through my fingers. We are a homeschooling family and I’m so thankful for the time we get to have with our kids.
We have a lot of cats usually. My children could tell you their names, but I can’t. I’m losing brain cells and I can not keep up with all the kitten names anymore.
We do a lot of ordinary living. We do laundry. We do dishes. We cook. We bake. We clean. We run errands. We work on stuff. We play. We learn. We do it all again. Some days it feels a little like an endless cycle. 🙂
We have our good days and our awesome days and our-not-so-awesome days and our no-good-terrible-yucky-very-bad days, too. I mostly talk about the good days. But don’t ever think we never have the bad. None of us wants the bad and I thrive much better when I focus on the good instead of the bad; when I probe for the positive instead of getting knocked down by the negative.
I love good quotes and random trivia questions. Little things that make life interesting.
Beauty blesses me and I am grateful for it. I enjoy creating home and adding touches to make life beautiful.
I love to take pictures. I’ve been taking pictures since I was sixteen. Really, since before that. But I received a Fuji camera of my own for my sixteenth birthday and loved it and used it for a lot of years. In 2006, I bought my first digital camera and that opened a whole new scope to taking pictures!
Photography just rolls well with blogging. I like farm pictures. I like pictures of my kids and my man. I like pictures of inanimate objects and everyday. I like pictures of the day-to-day and of the details. I like pretty pictures and beauty. I enjoy capturing life through the lens.
I read and review books here on my blog. And offer giveaways for books. And take pictures of books. And get excited about books! If you love books, then YAY!!!
You’ll find me sharing crafts and knitting and projects and recipes too. I’d love to hear about your favorites!
I sell Lilla Rose! I love my flexis and I’m excited to share them with you! Find sizing and styling tips and tricks here. Young Living Essential Oils are another of my interests and loves. I’d be happy to help you learn more about them and launch you on your own oil adventure.
A Delightful Glow is… Of Family, Faith and Farm…and some food thrown in too! Where there’s family there’s a need for food and where there’s farming there’s a need for faith. Faith for the sprouting of seed to burst forth into a crop ready for the harvest!
A Delightful Glow is also my place to simply delight in the daily details. I can get bogged down in the routine and the mundane and the cycle of all the dailies. Yet, when I step back and adjust my view, I see the beauty of the blessings we have and the awesome thing it is to have the ability to go about each day, living life and performing daily duties. Life will not always be as it is today.
So, if you’ve stopped in here or stumbled upon us, AND read this far, welcome and come back!! 🙂

More randomness…just for fun…some of my likes and dislikes…
and a few of the hats that I wear at any given time~Cook, Laundress, Errand-Runner, Secretary, Kansas Farmwife, Teacher, Maid, Groundskeeper, Nurse, and any other title needed at the given moment…
Photography is fun!
Baking is much preferred over cooking, probably because I’d rather eat warm rolls or fresh chocolate chip cookies than, say, cooked broccoli.
I could never have been a real nurse or doctor.
We have a heart for the ministry work of Compassion.
I enjoy crunching numbers.
Chocolate and good friends go hand in hand!
New toothbrushes make me happy!
Sewing is ok, but I definitely didn’t get the talent my sister did. She was born to sew. She even makes wedding dresses…and enjoys it!!
I grew up in Ohio.
There’s nothing like cuddling your kiddos..
Science is not my thing.
Red raspberries Rock!
I strongly, strongly dislike snakes.
I don’t like grasshoppers either…at least I DO NOT like it when I am mowing grass and they jump on me with their clingy little feet. (shudder)
I really, really like tea parties.
Two favorite pastimes=movies and books.
The smell of mothballs and I don’t get along.
Beef and Potatoes-my man will happily eat them every day. My daughter is in firm agreeance with the potato part.
I am all about massages and pedicures.
And almost anything for the home with the brand name, Tag.
Bouquets of fresh flowers are fantastic.
Brownies-well lets just say my daughter and I could clean out a pan of brownies at record speed if so needed
Getting to spend time with my husband makes me smile.
Swallowing pills has never come naturally or easily to me.
I am not fond of strong winds.
I can’t whistle very well at all and I wish I could. There are so many times I would like to wolf whistle at my husband across the farmyard.
Chocolate malts are so, so delicious!
