Life around here :: a week of sickness, lots of naps, saltine cracker crumbs, two bible studies, baby baths, a dozen laundry cycles, a phone call to my mama, groceries delivered (praise hands), a cup of Friday evening tea and @erinloechner's book. Yes.

I really really really love soup night. ❀πŸ₯„πŸ²πŸ₯•πŸ…πŸ₯–

a highly happy time of year, when we absorb the smell of sunshine in our hair πŸŒ€β€πŸ’™

HAPPY 32nd BIRTHDAY, BABE! We're all blessed by your giant happy smile, your dedication to taking care of us, your humor, your love for the Lord, and your "nerdy focus" towards getting out of debt next year! I'll be your "free spirit" 4-ever! ;D We had a great time celebrating YOU tonight!!! Happy happy happy birthday, Zack! πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

All day long, no matter how many times I tried or prayed or cried hot tears, I felt like I was failing. So impatient, so exhausted, so focused on only God knows what... really, today was one of my hardest days as a mom. I stopped many (many) times and asked God to help me, but I still continued to flop around in my own impatience and filth. I'm not sure what's going on, I mean, I know there are things lingering in the near future that are absolutely YES LORD opportunities. So maybe it's a little bit of spiritual warfare? I need peace tonight. I am in need of a cleansed heart. God, take away this bitter impatience and give me more grace and a joyful heart.

What do you want for your self / your family / your life? How are you going to help yourself get there? I bet you have more resources within reach than you realize. Grab a trusty pal and ask for help if you need to, I LOVE asking for help ;) two is better than one!!!!!

VDAY 2017: a pizza party at home, homemade cards, a spur of the moment birdhouse craft, coloring, and hanging some woven baskets on the wall. Yep, we hit everyone's love language πŸ˜‰πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’˜#valentinesday

It may be 42Β° out, but the sun is shining and we are happy happy happy people at the park! β˜€οΈListen to their laughs!!!!! πŸ’–πŸ’–
