As I’m writing this post, on my heart are my sisters waiting for their babies, the battle-bruised warriors fighting infertility. It’s a beast, that monster, but I’m proud of you (of US) fighting the battle that’s waged war on our lives. Some of the strongest women I know are waiting for their arms to be […]

    Katie - I needed this today. Knowing that others deal with the same pains and feelings makes it all a little more bearable.ReplyCancel

This is a post for the introverts. If you’re an extrovert reading this, I’ve got nothing for ya. But feel free to stick around to learn about your fellow introverts. I’m an all-around introvert. If you don’t know what that really means I’ll tell you what it doesn’t mean. It doesn’t mean I’m shy. It […]

    Kasey - I’m loving the daily blogging. Almost no time for commenting, but am reading. ReplyCancel

    Chandra Hadfield - From a fellow introvert, this is so good (and true). I also need a lot of down time after events. I like “friend time”, but I love “me time.” Now that both of my kids are in school, I really enjoy the quiet house each morning. No tv, no music, just plain quiet. It helps me recharge and refocus.

    So glad I found your blog today through 31 days. I’m also from the Houston area (between downtown and Galveston). Blessings!

(source) If you’re surprised that I’m writing about Lucille Ball, well then my friend, we need to get to know each other better. I’ve had a slight major obsession with Lucille Ball since childhood. She was my imaginary friend (weird). I hoped she would write letters to me during my sleep (weird x 2). I’ve read every […]

I told you about my tree-less tree house reading nook I built in fifth grade. I’m proud to say that my rogue creativity dives deeper beyond that one incident. It’s been a life-long characteristic. I’ve been thinking like that my entire life. I’ve had ideas on what I wanted to create, but didn’t necessarily have […]

    Tabitha - Hey there–I love your perspective on limitations! God has been challenging me in this as we are in a season of homelessness. Adaptations, concessions and creativity are the name of our game!ReplyCancel

One of the biggest qualities of a rogue is that they keep their eye focused on their goal. They get excited about possibilities. They enjoy the process of whatever it is they are working toward. They don’t get discouraged during the journey – whether it’s because of what people say or because things aren’t going […]

How many times has fear stood in our way of going rogue? Keeping you from going after the things that fuel your heart… Starting that band? Running for senator? Being in a relationship? Starting a business? Defining your own personal style? Writing a blog? Where does the fear come from? Is it because you’re worried […]

    Aaron - thanks for the reminder. We can’t let fear overtake our own rogue potential! ReplyCancel

    Dawn Paoletta (@breathoffaith) - If we counted up all of the things we didn’t do because of fear…that would be scary! Great topic and post. Your whole blog layout is such a great reflector of the message you are communicating! Have an awesome 31 Days!

I was a tree-house-obessed fifth grader. One of my dad’s favorite places was the Home Depot, and a few times a week he would take me along with him. There was a book about tree-house construction in the book section at the front of the store near the checkout stand. While my dad stood in […]

    La - Awesome! My sister and I always wished we had a tree-house (alas, we lived in NYC). SO we made a lot of blanket forts instead. :) Thanks for jogging those great memories! ;) ReplyCancel

I remember reading once that as the years pass, humans shed their skin and every seven years they end up with completely new skin cells. Thanks, Science, for being cool and gross at the same time. In this new season of life that entails motherhood in addition to wifehood and creative-hood, I’ve felt like this […]

    Gabrielle - I’m so interested in this rogue thing! I feel like I’m exploring this a bit in my series for the 31 day challenge, stepping out of your comfort zone…In so many ways I do this, but in so many ways I need a push! Looking forward to your thoughts on this stuff!

    Erica - I LOVE that word! And especially the way you described it! Rouge. It just kinda rolls around in your head, and off your tongue. I love your concept behind it – there are so many pressures and expectations that society puts on us, but it’s our choice to decide what is truly important. It’s time to buck the system, and go rouge on some things. Slowing down some things, speeding up others, putting more effort in things we think are important verses what others tell us are important. Love it – I can’t wait to read the rest of the month’s posts.

    Heidi Joe - Hannah, this is great. This quote you wrote “I’ve felt like giving this blog its seven-year-slough; making it something new to reflect the season of life I’m in. But I want to be intentional about it ” is exactly where I am. I want to write write write and blog again but I think I’m waiting for it to be perfect. Whatever that actually is. I want to write about new motherhood and new life and how it is not what I expected. Rogue, if you will. Thanks for being an inspiration to me. I can’t wait to read more. One day, you, me and giant cups of coffee, I tell you. ;) ReplyCancel

    Moi - Looking forward to the rest of your series! I think going rogue sounds like a good idea!
