A new look...

We re-signed our apartment lease yesterday. As I look back on this post written almost a month and a half ago, I don't have any regrets. God met me when I needed Him the most and I know He's still here by my side, still mighty to save. We still have a place to live and store all of our stuff for the next couple of months and for that I'm grateful. We're not giving up on the house, just giving it more time. At the end of the month, we'll see where we're at and decide if we're still willing to go forth with this long process. There is hope that we might still get the tax rebate, if congress goes forth with extending the bill until the end of September. This article gave us hope. Please Lord let it go though! We have slowed our packing process, still packing up here and there, but only the things that we don't use on a daily, or even monthly basis. We have a nice stack of packed boxes sitting in our massive closet out of the way and out of sight. The 40+ empty boxes are still in our bedroom, collecting dust.

It's hard to believe that it's the middle of June already. Spring is almost over and we're ever so close to hitting Summer, although the rainy cooler weather that we've been experiencing lately would make one think that it's early April. Here are a few pictures from this month that make me smile.

These pictures were taken in the car on our anniversary. I'm trying to impersonate Justin Bieber's (or Beaver as I like to call him) famous hair. I think I wear it better. ;) Four years and counting. :)


And of course, I couldn't post pictures and leave my little one out.



I'm trying out a new look...

Bangs:

Bangs off to the side:

Which hairdo do you like better?

  1. I love the side swept bangs! And I totally think you should cut the back into a stacked wedge. I think that would be super cute!

  2. I think so too! Now I just need to convince my husband to let me cut my hair again. ;)

  3. Cute bangs! I think the regular ones make you look super young.

    I had a dream last night that you posted a video of Simon running through your brand new empty house...he was laughing the whole way and RUNNING! It will happen, my dear.

We are His portion and He is our prize...

I've had this song in my head for a few days now. I love Kim Walkers voice and the passion that she portrays in this song. McMillan did a wonderful job in writing this song, the lyrics are so profound and encouraging and...different (the "sloppy wet kiss" part makes me smile). I especially love the first part of this song...

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves …

My favorite flower. The peony.

The peony is my favorite flower. They have always held a special place in my heart. For as long as I can remember, they've grown in my childhood backyard. My mom has a plant from the house I was born in, their current house - the house I grew up in - and a plant from my Great-Grandma. As kids, we would watch in awe as the ants crawled over the peony buds, almost willing them to open. It was a chore getting those little suckers off once the flowers were ready to be cut and brought into the house. But it was worth the effort.

My dad has always commented that the flowers smell like old lady perfume. Haha!  I still think of that when I bring the blooms up to my nose for a whiff of Spring. They're such a romantic flower. I wanted them for my bridal bouquet, but they had already stopped blooming by the time June 3rd rolled around. So sad.

Apartment living was dreary for me when it came to flowers. No lilacs, tulips or peonies. When we moved to our current house, I was …

Be Still, My Soul. Remembering...

My first post of 2014.

Looking back on my last post, I'm overwhelmed with many emotions. It was the last post before our world was turned upside down, before the cold weather hit hard, before doctor visits became our norm. Before Halloween, Thanksgiving, my 30th birthday, Christmas and New Years. Looking back at the title of that post, I'm struck with how appropriate it was for the rest of the year. I tried to blog a few times since October 13th. But I never got to the point where I felt like I could publish. I had a million and one thoughts constantly tumbling around in my tiny mind. Writing helped to unload it, but just like it is with my trusty old dishwasher, there's always dirty dishes to take the place of the clean ones and I found myself overwhelmed and overcome with both good and bad...clean and dirty. My brain has felt like mush since October. Add holidays, getting sick, taking care of sickies, being the strong one, being the brave one, being the hea…
