A Week at a Time | 1/13/17

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!


Today marks one year with the sweet boy. Our story is one of being continually amazed by what God has done and is doing. For me, it’s one of wrestling with trusting the Lord and learning to rest in His all sufficient grace. It is a milestone to be celebrating a year with this dear man.

Happy new year everyone! I spent this week on a work trip with the college ministry to Atlanta to attend the Passion Conference at the Georgia Dome. With three days worth of conference, I had a few ups and downs, but overall, it brought some time of reflection and a bit of clarity, and that’s always a good thing!

I have enjoyed the lighter workload and the last two weeks and I just don’t want to imagine going back to my normal working hours. I have gotten a few runs in as well as more quality snuggle time with Zoe. I have gotten some much needed blog work done and done some envisioning for the future. I have made some decisions and got some rest, and it’s been needed.  Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 12/30/16”

Whirlwind week turned into a whirlwind weekend! I am currently en route to central Florida for wedding weekend.  The trip out is going to be a bit rushed, but I am excited to get there and see everyone and then enjoy taking our time a bit on the way home. I already have a few stops in mind. Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 12/16/16”

Who shopping the day away today? I may just do a bit of online shopping… But crowds of people with overloaded arms /carts of merchandise is not my thing. Instead, I am enjoying the day off with plenty of lounging and macarons. All ready for the weekend, but before that, here’s a little re-cap of the week!

It’s been a cleansing week. With my work schedule being lighter then I expected it to be, I have had time to tackle some life things. I have this elusive extra room at my house that has been sitting unused and so has accumulated things. Having lived here for over two years now, it’s a bit embarrassing. As someone who loves the feeling of knowing I could put everything I own into my car and be on my way, this just doesn’t fit. So I am getting rid of some serious stuff. Organizing paperwork and having a place for every little thing that I must keep and getting the rest out of the house and out of my life. It is incredibly therapeutic and so freeing.

This week started with my Dad taking a trip to the emergency room with a stroke. And so my week consisted of cutting back to minimal hours at work and spending all my time at the hospital. So grateful that, as strokes go, it was minor. Still waiting for answers as to why this happened, but praying for grace to rest even if we don’t get answers. It’s been a week of hard conversations, but also so much sweet laughter and conversations with family. So thankful to every person who sent their love and who came out to visit. We really are blessed to be surrounded by such dear people.  Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 11/4/16”
