First off, thanks for stopping by my little piece of the Internet. I hope you stay awhile and that we can get to know each other.

My name is Alison but everyone except my mom when I am in trouble calls me Ali; and once we’re friends, you can too.


Way back when {2008 to be exact} I decided to call my blog Enjoying Now as a way to help me remember to treasure each moment of my life. I foolishly spent much of my teens and early twenties wishing I was in a different season, only to realize that the dissatisfaction I had for myself and my life was coming from within.

All the glory for the woman I am belongs to the Lord. He has made me a new creation, freed me from a deadly sin and *still* gives me the grace I need to live my life fully committed to Him. I love Him deeply.

I have always lived in the most beautiful state {Colorado}. In 2006, I married the most wonderful man {David} and began my nursing career. In 2010, I bore our first miracle baby {Elijah}. In 2012, I was blessed with another sweet baby, Ella. My life is far from perfect but I am more than blessed.


This is a lifestyle blog where I mostly share stories about my life as a mom and wife coupled with the things that the Lord is teaching me. Oh and occasionally I do share a successfully completed DIY project and my photography endeavors.

And if you are interested, here are a few more things that I ENJOY:

  • Climbing to the top of a 14’er.
  • Eating my frozen yogurt and then finishing my husband’s.
  • Hugging my sweet babies in the morning.
  • Praying for people.
  • Running.
  • Photography.
  • Kissing my husband.
  • Avocados.
  • Reading a great book.
  • Watching Friends.
  • Actually coming up with a crafty idea of my own.
  • Camping.

“Crafty Concentration” :: I like to buy the little wood crafts at Michaels for Elijah to paint. He really gets into it. We still have a bird house that we painted last year hanging on one of our Aspen trees. It’s green and orange paint is faded. The premises are vacant. I am not even sure if a little bird could even fit through it’s hole. I have to say that this new bird house’s colors are my favorite yet…I think they complement each other quiet nicely. And a certain little boy is insistent that we put some bird food in it before we hang it on a tree. I suppose it’s kind of like when a realtor encourages a homeowner to bake chocolate chip cookies before a showing…except not because I am not even sure if the prospective birdhouse dwellers could even smell the proverbial bird cookies through such a small opening. Nevertheless, the paint job is a darn good one. 😉

“Sleeping Beauty” :: Of course I would title Ella’s picture that, right? My girl is such a good little sleeper. I am SO thankful for that quality in her. She goes to bed at 730-ish and wakes up around 830-ish. Then she takes a 2 hour nap in the afternoon. She falls asleep easily and wakes up happy. It’s just the perfect combination. Oh, and she is one of those kiddos who you can actually transfer from the car to her bed during her nap. It’s truly a miracle. You know what else is a miracle? The blanket that she is sleeping with. It was mine when I was little. It still looks amazing AND I didn’t throw it away. I have a really bad habit of throwing/giving things away so that I am not even close to being a hoarder. But since the blanket somehow made it through…I can now listen to Ella talk about the animals that I remember studying when I was little. Priceless.
