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!
This has been a week of wondering. Making pro/con lists, weighing the options, trying to figure out the outcome of potential decisions. I am reminded that I do not know the future. I never have. It’s okay to take time to make decisions, to ask wiser people for advice, but ultimately, the decision is mine. That is equally freeing and overwhelming.
Really excited to be starting (on week 44) the 52 Lists Project. I have always been a list person anyway, and I think this is a unique approach to processing and meditating on one’s life. Anyone else out there doing this challenge? I have really enjoyed exploring the #52ListsProject on Instagram to see what others are learning and discovering on their own journey.
Finished the book Objects of His Affection by Scotty Smith. Talk about some perspective. Unfortunately, it’s a perspective I all too often forget; that I am deeply loved. It was a really lovely read that included a whole lot of highlighter action.
While I was planning on laying relatively low for the remainder of 2016, but I am excited to spend a long weekend in Florida next month to celebrate the wedding of one of my dearest friends! I am honored to be able to stand beside her on this big day and spend some time with some old friends. Also, excited to say that the boy will be coming along for the trip and I am so, so excited to travel together.

This weekend is going to be a mix of fun and work. Spending an evening in playing games and passing around my friends new baby boy. Then shopping the day away Saturday for work preparing for our big end of semester Thanksgiving feast. Can it be that time already!?
