Stitches and Laces

The ole hubs asked me why “Stitches and Laces”. September is a great month for us when it comes to sports. Baseball is nearing the end – this is the time of the year that they really step up their game to make the final push to get in the post season. Football is starting up. And EVERYONE in the South is excited about that. It never fails that during the month of September we have a football game going or a baseball game going on the television every single night.

But it is so much more than just sports. A baseball has stitches that holds the leather together at the seams. And just like the stitches in the baseball we have “stitches” that hold us together when it comes to certain areas of our lives. If you are like me you keep those “stitches” as tight as possible and let very few people in. A football has laces. Those laces help the quarterback grip the ball to help him get the ball to his teammates. I have a few people that are the “laces” in my life – they are my soundboard, they help me get through the struggles, tell me when I am being crazy, and help me get through this rollercoaster ride called life.

I am learning slowly that I need my “stitches” to become a little bit more lose, and to add a few more “laces” to my arsenal.


Welcome to the crazy, wonderful world that I call my life. I decided to start blogging to have an outlet to the world – to share the good, bad, and the ugly for those of you “on the line.” You may find this inspiring, cheesy, informative, or a waste of your time. Whatever the outcome is, thanks for joining.

I’ll be sharing abut my life with seizures, being a mom (I’m due with our first in January 2019), travel, sports (we are a HUGE sports family, hence the name Stitches and Laces), good books (or bad), food that we live off of, and offers that you may find helpful or useful to you.

Please feel free to pass this blog on to anyone you may know that would benefit from this page!

When life gives you lemons, accept them graciously. – Unknown469688_10100255694689792_519505444_o
