Project365: January 30 - February 5

February 5 | Today was a tall cup of coffee day. Simon woke up every hour, starting at 1am last night. His nose was stuffy/runny and it was hard for him to breath…therefore making it hard to sleep. Upon hearing his pathetic cries, I would stumble in, wipe his nose, mumble a prayer for him as I caressed his blonde locks of hair and than stumble back into my bed, 2 minutes later. This happened about 5 times total. So yes, Dunn Brothers to the rescue! :)

February 4 | I changed my lock screen wallpaper. This picture makes me happy for so many reasons: 1) The time 7:55pm, because sleepy boy Simon is now sleeping. 2) The day - Fridays are pretty awesome and 3) It’s a whimsical piece of art of a girl in a yellow dress knitting. Love! :)

February 3 | I just finished knitting my very first pair of mittens…owl mittens at that! I guess you could say I’m going dpn crazy, now that I know how to use them - lol! I came across this easy pattern (originally posted by a fellow Tumblr knitter: rainydaynyc) and I had to give them a try. I did make a small change to the right mitten, making it so I can text-and-wear. Ha! Here’s the free pattern for anyone interested: http://kelbournewoolens.com/giveahoot.html

February 2 | One of the few perks about apartment living is that they plow the lot where you park. Our apt. complex posts signs throughout the building stating the date and time of each plow session. At the bottom of the page they give clear instructions on moving your vehicle…and if you don’t, you get towed. They plowed today. This is how we found the lot 2 hours later - empty (our car pictured). After seeing how sore and wiped out my husband is from shoveling out our new driveway, I have a deeper appreciation of the plowing of our apt. lot.

February 1 | We bought our first house today!! It’s a yellow house with a red front door. This makes me happy. I kind of have an obsession with red doors. And yellow houses make me smile too. It’s charming and cozy and I can’t wait to move in! But first we have to pack up our old place. Yeah.

January 31 | A highlight for Simon is to help with taking the trash out. It’s quite the journey down to the dumpsters. You go down four levels and across a wet underground garage. He loves to carry the light stuff and won’t let me help, even if he starts to show signs of distress. ;) He’s so precious and such a good little helper. :)

January 30 | One of our great finds when we moved to our current apartment was the “Donut Hut”. Their donuts are SO yummy. The best part is, they’re just down the street from us. I’ll miss them when we move. And so will my butt.

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 …

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 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…
