A Week at a Time | 9/30/16

 

When life gets crazy or exciting or overwhelming or things change, I write. It’s always been this way for me. And so as an extension of this, I am going to have a weekly, “here’s a little bit of life”, post. From working in college ministry to life as a part time nanny. Date nights and soccer games on the weekends. Reading and drinking coffee and squeezing in a run. Just taking a moment to look back at what the week has brought me before plunging into that all so wonderful weekend! 


Coming to you a little late because man oh man it’s been a week. It’s been a week where balance just didn’t happen (does it ever…?). After babysitting two fun (read: energetic & full of questions) little girls the entire weekend, I jumped right into the work week, and let me tell you, I do not recommend making that a regular thing.

A Week at a Time | 9/23/16

When life gets crazy or exciting or overwhelming or things change, I write. It’s always been this way for me.

What a week. From 4 am mornings and late night conversations, it’s been full. But it has also included some very intentional still time. Last weekend I was completely stopped in my tracks by a real swell headache. I didn’t want to look at any screens or try to focus on words in a book, so I just stopped. And it was good. I relaxed and had some time with my thoughts and time in prayer and time with my parents. And all of that was very good and very needed. And it has me carefully reevaluating the time I take to rest. In other words, I am making it a priority again. Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 9/23/16”

Late Night Notes // Life of a Night Owl

This post was started many weeks ago and has been a work in progress since. 

Maybe it’s because I’ve gotten more sleep in the last few days then I have in the last few weeks. Maybe it’s because I’ve just discovered some great Instagram feeds that have me all inspired and feeling creative. Maybe it’s because I have this sneaking hunch that change is right around the corner and I want it to be something amazing. Maybe it’s because Continue reading “Late Night Notes // Life of a Night Owl”

A Week at a Time | 9/16/16

When life gets crazy and exciting and things change, I write. It’s always been this way for me. And so as an extension of this, I am going to have a weekly, here’s a little bit of life, post. I would love to say what this will include, but who knows! From working in college ministry to life as a part time nanny. Date nights and soccer games on the weekend. Reading and drinking coffee to cleaning the turtle tank and squeezing in a run. Just taking a moment to look back before plunging into the weekend! 


This week is a start of some mellowing/forming of an almost routine in my schedule, I think. I hope. With the fall semester starting, the last couple weeks (months) have been all about college ministry. And they have been full to the brim with work (and squeezing in a long weekend in Cape Cod), and really, I have been loving it. So much planning and big picture work mixed with details and nitty gritty. It has been a continuous lesson in Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 9/16/16”
