In February, Catherine and I made our first solo long drive to Williamsburg, Va. (a.k.a. the Promised Land). I had 14 hours of drive time with my delightful but non-verbal companion which translated into plenty of time to think and pray. Right now we are in the phase of Andy's medical journey where the most commonly asked question… Continue reading Our Plans, God’s Plans
Wow, it's been almost a month since my last post but in the blog silence we've been enjoying our summer. Andy and I joke that we'll be glad for school to start because it forces us to be less busy. In the past month, we've visited family in 3 different cities and 2 different states,… Continue reading Our 30 Minutes of Fame
Andy and I don't feel like the average med school couple. I mean, we are on paper, but somehow it doesn't seem like it, and I think it's because we feel settled. In the med school, residency, (fellowship?), and beyond! family life it can be hard to put down roots. As a family you have to… Continue reading Settled.
I've been suffering from some serious writer's block lately when it comes to the blog. There are now 18 partial posts sitting in my drafts folder but I haven't been able to get it together enough to finish one and get it published. Nevertheless, I still wanted to join up with Medical Mondays today so… Continue reading Go Cats?
At 12:30am on Monday morning, we returned from a 5 day getaway to Colorado Springs over Andy's spring break. The American Academy of Osteopathy was having their annual Convocation there this year. One of the clubs Andy is in was going and I thought it sounded like a great thing to tag along on. We… Continue reading Spring Breakin’ in Colorado
Sometimes you wake up and it looks like this outside (which has happened a lot lately) our university doesn't normally close for weather but this is the worst storm we've had all winter so the university actually closed and I got a real day off (yay!). Our county was even declared to be in a… Continue reading Med School Snow Day?
So this installment of quotes just features Andy. I guess that's one of the luxuries of being the person who records the quotes... 😉 Andy: Good News! Sarah: What? Andy: I thought I had eaten all of the candy apple, but I realized that I dropped some of the candy coating on my pants! It's… Continue reading If Our Walls Could Talk
Today is Andy's first day back at school after an awesome Christmas break. I went back to work last Thursday. We spent most of the break in Virginia visiting our families, and when we came back to KY we brought 9 of our college friends with us for New Year's. It was a lot of fun. You… Continue reading Back to School!

Please enjoy reading our Christmas letter below. 🙂 Dear Family and Friends, Howdy from our little place amongst the hills and hollers of Pikeville, KY!

I saw this post on Words of Williams about 11 things they don't spend money on, and I thought a variation on that theme might be good for Medical Mondays this month.It probably doesn't come as a surprise to anyone that med school ain't cheap. There have been a few articles floating around recently about… Continue reading Living Cheaply But Still Enjoying Life in Med School
