Currently (Vol. 1)

So excited to be taking part of this link up this week for the first time.  This is what I am currently doing, nothing really extra ordinary just a glimpse into my piece of this world.  Between the laundry and the cleaning and the feeding, there are morsels of goodness that I am trying to savor.

Thinking about…. how excited I am for summer!  The kids have 4 weeks left of school and I think I am more exhausted and sick of school than they are.  I keep praying everyday that one of their teachers will decide that homework is done for the rest of the year!  I need sentences to be done, and school projects to cease!  I don’t want to have to worry about how late they stay up, or whats on the schedule for the next day.  Summer in our house is such a refresher from the normal day to day routine all year long.  25 days till school is out, not that I am counting or anything!!!  Summer come quick!

Reading….Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life around the Table by Shauna Niequist.  I am loving the recipes scattered throughout the book.  I literally just started the book this week and am thinking it will be a good book to kick off the start of this beautiful weather.  I so badly want to have an open house where we have people gather around our table.  Sadly, I often find myself more concerned with how things look and how littles will behave that I quickly talk myself out of having people over.  Hoping this book helps change the way I approach this.




Listening to… this song on repeat, all day, every morning!  It is Well by Bethel Music & Kristene DiMarco.  This is a must listen and a must add to your itunes library.  I had somewhat of an emotionally overwhelming week, last week, and the truths in this song are so true and so pure that you cannot ignore the powerful words.


Watching…..the season finale of Saturday Night Live.  We have it saved and are waiting for to watch it tonight!  We have a ritual of having wine and cheese on Thursday nights to celebrate the start of the weekend for us!  My husband has off Friday/Saturday so the weekend starts a little early for us.  I also started watching the pilot episode of the New Girl!  LOVE it, its hysterical.


Thankful for….the beautiful weather.  I am loving being able to be outside, grill outside and just live outside the four walls of our house.  We have this amazing little 12×10 screened in porch off the side of our house, and it literally becomes where everyone gravitates to during the spring all the way till fall.

Remembering that….

No matter the stress or the tears, these are the days and the moments I will look back on and cherish.

  4. I’m so happy that the sun is finally shining and I don’t have to be bundled in layer upon layer of clothing (most of our winter was below zero–brr)! I love your little screened in porch! It looks like the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night. Oh and I love the song you shared, so powerful!
