A Week at a Time | 12/23/16

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!


Merry Christmas everyone! It’s been such a fun filled week after getting back from Florida! The wedding was beautiful and the entire weekend was a celebration. Friends and family came in from all over the country and helped to create such an amazing atmosphere for the wedding of dear friends. Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 12/23/16”

Back to that college ministry work grind before the Christmas break. We have one last event where we are talking about what is happening around the world, and promoting our annual trip to Austria next summer. So it’s just a few more busy weeks before settling into the goodness of Christmas time. Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 12/2/16”

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!

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.

This week has been one of continual reminders of why I do what I do, and I have needed that. It has been a week of encouragement and just a keen sense of gratefulness for the people who I am really blessed to be surrounded with. After last week just feeling stuck and frustrated and so over it, this week has been the biggest breath of fresh air. Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 10/21/16”

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”

Through the Lens: Vienna, Austria

The first thing you need to know about my most recent trip to Austria: I kind of fell in love. This country is rich with history and filled with beautiful architecture. I loved the city and I loved the mountains. There is so much to see and learn and experience. Also, there is much too much to try to Continue reading “Through the Lens: Vienna, Austria”
