First blog..first post!

Well, I did it! I finally started a blog! I have been told many times by my sister, Brittany, that I needed to start this and after meeting a lot of people who have them and are going through the things we have been through I decided I would bite the bullet and start one. So, after hours of playing with the design I decided to go with something basic to start out with and add onto it as time goes on. I LOVE to scrapbook and want it to eventually look like a scrapbook page, so that is the longterm goal. We will see how that goes! Until then....here it is! As I think about what to write, there are so many things that come to mind. I could write about my house and the ongoing project it is...I could write about adjusting to country life...I could write about my daily life and the play by play of my day...or I could write about my wonderful husband that I am blessed to share this life with. However, the thing that is constant on my mind these days is the life of my precious daughter Blair Nicole. Unfortunately, for unknown reasons, her life was cut short on this Earth and she is now dancing in heaven at the feet of Jesus. This is by far the most painful thing we have ever had to endure and not a day goes by that we don't grieve her loss. However, I know that God has a plan and there is beauty in the ashes. While we may not see it now, our pain has a purpose. Blair's life has a purpose to bring God glory and it's our job to make sure her life and legacy live on to change this world around us. Therefore, I want to use this blog as an outlet to talk about her life as well as where God brings us and what he shows us because of Blair. Thanks for walking this journey with us! 


  1. Oh my sweet Brooke...so glad you started your blog!!! I look forward to keeping up with you and hearing more of your heart through the writings on this blog. I am extremely thankful to have gotten to know you; just wish our circumstances could be different. ;) However, I know His plans are great and our future is bright because of being rooted and built up in Him. Know how much you are loved and prayed for...by SO many...and I hope you know I am always here for you. Love you dearly, friend.

  2. You can write about any and all of those things, Brooke, whatever is needing to come on that day. Blair's story is irrevocably intertwined with yours, as her sweet mama, and she's a part of everything you do from now on. We all love you so much.

  3. Yay - so happy you started this blog! We are praying for you and love you so much.
