Life Lately

Last night, I told Matt I needed a break. I wanted two hours to just process all that has happened in our life, write a little and write out a cohesive to-do list. He not only did he agree, he took it as an opportunity to take the kiddos and go visit his mother and go to a local festival. It’s been 4 and a half hours… the house is… quiet. In honor of the quiet, here’s a life lately post 🙂

Reading/// One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp {affiliate link}  Wow. I was blown away within the first few pages. I’m an analyst of life. Why did things work out this way? What did I eat that made my body ache and cramp for two days? What is the key to this person’s reaction? So many questions always swirling in my mind and then I read the line “Just that maybe… maybe you don’t want to change the story, because you don’t know what a different ending holds.” And deep in my soul I wondered if perhaps all my analytical thoughts aren’t in fact, working against me. I can’t wait to read more!

Drinking/// Oh thank God. The Salted Caramel Mocha is back. End of story.

Planning/// Christmas for my darlings. Stockings are done, but now I need to buckle down and figure out what exactly we want to do for them. I want this year to be simple. Last year I started with making something for each person on our list and I fully plan to do something similar again.

Writing/// newsletters for the MOPS group I am a part of. Our year starts in just 3 weeks and I am excited to see what we all learn as we explore our bravery.

Linking/// I haven’t written much lately, but I have been reading and making discoveries thanks to my blog subscriptions and pinterest

  • Not sure how I didn’t read this blogger before, but I am now and loving her posts!
  • I’m considering making these for my living room soon.
  • I really need to make this again. Thank God for soup season!
  • Just bought this for family photos next month. Sylvi will look adorable in this with her leopard tights.
  • Am I the only one who loathes stink bugs? I’m not messing around this year.

And now, I’m off to continue on my Mama Day… I’m looking forward to getting in a little time at my sewing machine!
