For those of you who have been wondering where I've been, I'm sorry!

My last year of classes has begun and it is the first time I have taken a full load of classes since E's birth! It has been an adjustment, and I am much busier than I was throughout the last 6 months. So, I am very sorry, but posts will be a whole lot less regular until this semester is over! Next semester's load shouldn't be quite as heavy.

I really miss writing, posting, photographing, and everything else that goes with it, but right now there are more important things in my life--spending time with my babe and precious girl while being a full time student! :)

I look forward to the days of posting regularly again, but for now, just check in occasionally to make sure you don't miss my sporadic posts!

Much love to you!

Here we are again with a WIWW post!

I know, you're probably thinking, "But it isn't Wednesday!" Here's the thing. If you haven't noticed, I have been forgetting to post on Wednesday (or at all for the last few weeks). One reason is that we haven't really been home for a few weeks, so its been hard to keep up! We are actually on vacation right now, and will be heading home tomorrow, therefore, I won't have access to the internet and need to post today instead!

These photos are from the previous 2 weeks, since I haven't posted in a few weeks I have collected a couple pictures to use!

Sunday Morning Church
shirt-Ann Taylor Loft (on sale last week!!)
pants- Ann Taylor Loft
sandals- GAP

Heading of for the day and Tuesday evening Bible Study!
shirt- it is Express, but came from Gabriel Brothers (its a chain in our area...check it out!)
skirt- Ann Taylor Loft (2 summers ago!)
red rose ring- belongs to my sister

So, there you have it! Hope you enjoy your day, as I will be trying to enjoy my last day of vacation at the beach! Photos to come later! :)

great in the mundane

to some my life may seem fantastic, to others it might seem boring, to me (many times) it is mundane
the same thing, over & over & over again--like dirty dishes, dirty clothing, dirty diapers (mostly just cleaning dirty things it seems)
there are those days when life just seems blah! believe me, i've been struggling with that a lot lately. being at home day in, day out, just me and little e (papa is at work of course) can get pretty tough, but that is where God gives so much grace!

today, for instance, i had planned to simply be at home as usual when things suddenly changed. i heard a "kaboom"--okay more like a "crash" in the kitchen and considering the rat problem we had a week or so ago (yes, rats...i know totally sickening) i was completely freaked out! i called my knight in shining armor who came to check things out for me. no rats, at least not that he saw, but i quickly loaded my things into the car and went back over to the mall with him. while i feel slightly ridiculous packing up everything for the day/evening and rushing to the car, i feel it is also slightly justified and exactly what God has planned for me today.
i wasn't happy about not finished the laundry and not getting the bathroom all sparkly like i wanted, but now that i've taken some time to just sit, relax, read, and sip some coffee, i am beginning to see God's grace in it.
He knew that i wouldn't have taken this time to simply be still if i were at home being distracted by my "chores", so he took me out of that environment to one that is more conducive to me being able to sit still.

so what am i loving this week? what is making my life great in the midst of the mundane?
God's grace in many things...
rats in our yard (and possibly in our house?? eek!)
coffee, Bible study book, Bible, pen

did i mention the coffee was free?!? thanks to Panera's grand opening and my knight (remember him from earlier today??) i score a free cup that gets me free coffee for 2 weeks!

time to just be still...

what is making your life great this week?
