More, please

Every morning I try to set aside time to read my Bible and write in my journal. My first order of business is thanking God. 

Life has been so beautifully full lately. I keep thinking I’ll have more, please, if that is your will, God. 

Life isn’t always easy, but it is incredibly blessed. The hard days are blessings in their own special way. The good days are absolutely amazing, and I want to soak it all in.

I’ll take more sunrises. More mornings eating breakfast outside. More evenings weeding the garden. More walks with Lola.


I’ll take more time with my sister. More acro yoga. More laughing. More watching her grow up into the amazing woman God made her to be. (P.S. Hannah started a blog!)


I’ll take more celebrations. More birthday parties. More get-togethers. More date nights. More time meeting new people. I went to my friend Kim’s house for her daughter Annabelle’s first birthday party and it was such a beautiful celebration. I can’t believe sweet Annabelle Grace is a year old!

Annabelle Birthday

I’ll take more renovations. More time making our house a home. More happy exhaustion from hard work. More trips to hardware stores to wander around aimlessly.

Bathroom Work

I’ll take more of Pittsburgh. More baseball games. More exploring the city. More new restaurants. More adventures.

PNC Park

I’ll also take more time spent with God. More journaling and Bible studying. More writing. More Pinterest browsing. More time spent reading and listening to podcasts. More traveling. More smiles. More coffee. More photography. More sleeping in. More staying up late. More drawing and painting. More deep conversations.

Thank you, God. If it’s your will, I’ll take more, please 🙂

What will you take more of in your life?



  1. I love this post! I’ll take more rainy days. More coffee, always. More relaxing nights. And more morning sun lights. More times with my sister. I almost made that into a poem! Love you ❤️

    1. Thanks Hannie! Oh, I love a good, cozy rainy day with nothing to do! It makes me want to organize things and read haha. Amen to more times with your sister! Yes please! I love you, too! ❤

  2. What a beautiful post! And such a lovely reminder to focus on the good things.
    I`ll take more swimming in the lake, more toddler cuddles, more iced coffees enjoyed on the deck…and Brady slept through the night again last night so I`ll take more of that too!:)

    1. Thank you, Nicole! You made me realize it’s basically a post filled with things that make me happy haha. Yay for toddler cuddles and sleeping through the night and iced coffee and the lake! All the best stuff 🙂

  3. This is a pretty awesome post. I’ll take more evenings on the porch, more days of doing yard work with my husband (then being able to look at our home and yard and admire how awesome they look), and more randomly cool temps in the mornings!

      1. Yep! I hated yard work growing up. Sometimes I don’t like it now but it is nice to look at the house or take a pic when it’s finished!

  4. Love this! Also yay for Hannah starting a blog, I’ll be sure to add her to my reader asap 🙂 Welcome, Hannah! I’ll take more sunshine, warm summer nights, laughter, smiles, times with friends, and more trips to the mountains.

  5. What an awesome post baby girl!! I will ABSOLUTELY take more time with my adult married children (hint), more coffee (x100), more cuddling with the dogs- as Hannah nor dad are ever home anymore 😑 And WAYYY more time studying God’s word. Love you beautiful!!

  6. I loved reading this Allie because you are enjoying your life. I’ll take more laughs at work with friends, more naps and more rainy/warm summer days.
