Hello New Wheels!

Hello friends! Big news–David got new wheels–his first wheelchair. We’ve been using a BOB stroller for the last couple years and it’s been great, but David has grown a lot and he needed something bigger.

How about some hellos for a new week?

Hello feeling grateful for David’s new wheelchair. It’s going to be wonderful for traveling. We’re going to England in a few weeks and it will be helpful with the airport and bigger excursions.

Hello feeling frustrated. I wish David could walk more {or maybe I should say cooperate more?} It’s a pain to have to lug the wheelchair around. Also we’re still fighting with insurance to get them to help us pay for it.

Hello content. David seems to love his new wheelchair {which is also an adapted stroller}

Hello brand new week with beauty to be found. I’m on the lookout! Join me? What are you saying hello to this week?


  1. Lisa, I have a few ideas for pendants related to families who have lost a child. Do you collaborate with others in the marketing of new items?

    Thank you for your time.

  2. Way to go David! Don’t suppose there’s an option to buy something on your website and you post it when you’re over here in England?!

  3. Hello Lisa,

  4. I have been a long-time reader, but have been on a self-imposed internet hiatus. I logged on today and was amazed at how big and beautiful your boys are. They have grown so much! And you, as always, look beautiful and serene (even if like most of us moms, you are sometimes faking it :)) Love David’s new wheels and hope you have a wonderful time in Europe. As for The Nightingale, it is amazing, but positively heart-wrenching!

  5. Yay for the wheelchair! We’re looking into getting one for our 13 year old but the insurance hassles has us procrastinating. The Nightingale is so good. I made the mistake of reading it when I was 7 months pregnant and cried like a baby through most of it.
