We have an on-going joke in our house about how I’m constantly making our house a home. I’m always changing something since we moved in nearly 7 years ago. Writing this post is making me legit LOL because I thought I would be done with showing you rooms of this house; Within the last 2 months […]

I’ve been sharing our purging and minimizing journey with some friends over the months and a recurring theme I hear is how overwhelmed they feel when they think about doing the same with their stuff. And there is no judgement from me because I totally know what that’s like. It’s easy to look at a house […]

For a long time I’ve imagined our family living in a smaller home in the area of town we longed to be in. We’ve always wanted to be out of the suburbs and closer to the heart of the city but never could imagine how that was possible. We’ve had the desire to pick up […]

Before kids I had grand ideas of the type of mother I would be. I’m a deeply creative person! Surely that will spill over into my parenting and I would be the mom sending her kids to school with the most Pinteresting goodies for all of their school holiday shindigs. Then I became a mom […]

  • Kyla - You are an amazing mama, Hannah! There is so much pressure to “measure up” to the Pinterest moms, but I bet those kids would love to have a mama with the time to play with them instead of making pin-worthy desserts that kids never seem to appreciate anyway. I always think of Mary and Martha…sometimes sitting on the floor with someone you love is the better choice. ReplyCancel

Our playroom is the space in our house that changes the most. And it’s not because of my habit of rearranging. It’s mainly because when kids are such a young age, they grow so fast! As their growth evolves so do their toys…and their ability to climb things to get to those toys. Aaah! Last […]

The title of this post is not click-bait. I’m literally having brain surgery. I don’t even know where to begin with this. It’s so detailed and elaborate how we’ve come to the point of my name being on a surgery schedule. I just keep thinking how this story is going to be in a book […]

  • Allison Humble - Hannah! Sweet girl! I am sorry you’re having to go through this but so grateful you finally have answers and a solution. I am believing with you that this will work and you will have a speedy recovery. I will absolutely pray for you and the surgeons.
    Habakkuk 3:17-19…so encouraging!

  • Sam Mathis - Just saw your picture on facebook and had to come find out what was going on. Praying for a smooth surgery today and fast recovery.

    As a thought, if this stenosis was a chronic issue, it would explain why you had such a bad reaction to the lumbar puncture. If you were not getting good spinal fluid out to the spinal cord, the fluid they took out from the lumbar puncture would have created a void that would give you the severe headaches because your body didn’t actually refill the area with spinal fluid like it should have.

    Anyways, praying for you, Aaron, your family, and the doctors today.ReplyCancel

    • hannah_bunker - Just now catching up on blog comments. That makes sense about the LP! Thank you for the explanation and for the prayers as well. ReplyCancel

  • Robyn - Just found your blog a couple of seconds ago when searching for vday ideas ( found your 52 reasons…)

    Praying for you during this time! you’ll come out so much stronger and better than before.ReplyCancel

My mom, with my twin sisters in the car, picked me up from my house to carpool to the Med Center to see my dad, who is quarantined in the cell and gene therapy unit of the hospital, after having a stem cell transplant. This weeks-long hospital stay fell on Thanksgiving this year, and I […]
