linking up with Heather, Laura + Carissa today.
I might be wearing my $15 dress I snagged from Old Navy… I might (or might not) get up early enough to make myself some waffles, after fixing Bubby’s breakfast. I’m not a morning person, it doesn’t matter what day it is. Forgive me? :) The day already feels like it will be filled with [...]Pin It
Dear Weekend… you went by way too fast. With so much to do, so much to see and so little time. But you were awesome. Dear Texas, who knew you could be so stinkin’ beautiful. I think March+April really complement you the best. Dear Bluebonnets, how I wish you could stay forever. As we drove [...]
He does this thing all on his own. He will grab a cap, his daddy’s cap, and turns it sideways or backwards. I know I’m biased (I can be, right?) but he is so. stinkin’. CUTE. It’s times like this where I literally think… Thank you GOD for my little boy. Oh and I thought [...]
I caved and decided to link up with Ashley and Andi on ‘the girl behind the blog’ series. (Thank you Lindsay ;) It’s more or less what’s on my heart, what I’ve been learning – from down right serious to the frivolous things in life. Hope you join in! xoxo ps- at the end apparently [...]
resting… dreaming big… worship… counting your blessings… more than usual :) saying a prayer… taking time offline… thanking God for the breathtaking moments in life… smelling the roses… meeting new friends… planning your week ahead without stressing too much… (somehow Starbucks makes this one easier ;) hoping Monday isn’t too dreadful… and remembering to choose joy.
Dear Mr. Cox, Without getting too gushy, I have to say a few things. Today you turn 28. We’ve known each other since you were 18. 10 years. A lot changes in 10 years. College, marriage, kids. makes me want to cry thinking about it. I still remember those days we would talk about having [...]
1. eyes of wonder. someone on instagram said it perfectly. his eyes are always looking for something to get into, climb or eat! :) 2. at the rodeo this truck was custom painted with extremely detailed images of our country’s history. quite impressive, moved me to tears. 3. joseph discovered the amazingness of indoor play [...]
or does it look like gerber daisies are always smiling? Is it just me or does time seem to be standing still and racing by all at the same time? and does this sometimes just get old? Waiting on Heaven, I mean. Is it just me or does it seem like friends live much too [...]Pin It
One of these days my sweet boy…. You won’t be so small. You’ll be saying full sentences sooner than I realize. And running off to play with your friends. It feels like I can’t hug you tight enough these days. Mommy won’t be your world like she is now, one day. Oh I am so [...]
Garden love… This lily popped up in Jenna’s garden in spite of the cold, cold weather we had a few weeks ago. Last night little man spewed about 10 times in the span of 6 hours. He was such a little trooper. But inside I was dying. Not because I was tired but because I [...]
Dear Bubby… There is always so much to say to you in these ‘dear bubby’ posts. You are incredible. You are so smart. The other day I was trying to being a multi-tasking mama+blogger+crafter+etc and failing miserably. But that happens ALL the time. :) I was snapping away at these little canvases and you deserted [...]
I can’t quite put my finger on it (seriously, I’ve tried) but Christmas just didn’t FEEL like Christmas. That is until Christmas Eve. I was wrapping gifts for my side of the family, as we (Pete, Bubby & I) had opened and exchanged gifts Christmas Eve morning because we knew Christmas Day would be full [...]
It’s been five years. It feels like we’ve been married for fifty. I love this man. A while back someone told me that it’s a good idea to write a list of the things that I love about him. And when he does something that makes me C.R.A.Z.Y…. read the list. It’s actually helped a [...]
In between this world and the next there are many things that go unseen. Tears. Thoughts. Wonders. Frustrations. Questioning. Silence from Heaven. Miracles. Hopes. Dreams. A realization that He never, ever left my side. Ever. The sadness/ anger/ what-have-you just had a way of smushing God out. In between my world and yours, sweet girl, [...]
