Current book The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. I try to read this book once or twice a year. It’s just a wonderful reminder that each of us were created by God for a purpose.
Current blessing Receiving a letter from the boy Jimmy and I sponsor at Niños de Mexico. It makes me heart so incredibly happy to know that he is safe, healthy, has a home, and is learning about God.
Current beauty product Yes To Carrots Super Rich Body Butter. It fits my beauty product criteria: natural, smells good, and works great!
Current goal This is a lofty one, but I want to finish the first draft of my book by the end of the year. Can’t believe I’m putting it out there, but I’m hoping it will help me stay accountable.
Current indulgence Watercoloring. I love pulling out my paint and brushes every now and then. This time I was making some simple art to put in a 5×7 frame for our bedroom. I chose the bottom right one.
Current drink As always, coffee. Really enjoying the single origin organic Peru beans from Aldi. Also had an iced vanilla latte the other day and it hit. the. spot.
Current craving I want to paint my nails. I just need to find a chunk of time when Mavis is sleeping so I don’t worry about picking her up with wet nails, ha.
Current food Vegetables from our garden! I know we’re nearing the end of the gardening season, so I’m trying to soak up all the garden time I can.
Current confession I don’t want summer to end, but at the same time I’m looking forward to fall and the holiday season. I’m planning a fall dinner for Jimmy and I and looking forward a new season of Gold Rush.
Current obsession Anything that has to do with our fur babies. Jimmy and I brought Mavis to her first training class this week and it was so much fun!
Current need Absolutely nothing! Feeling extremely blessed.
Current procrastination Mopping the floors. I’ve Swiffered the living daylights out of them, but I know they need a good old fashioned mopping.
Current excitement My mom bought a truck! She was torn between a few different Chevy models and the Ford F-150. She went with the Ford and told me she is loving it. I can’t wait to take a ride with her!
Current prayer For all the victims of Hurricane Harvey to find comfort, safety, hope, and solace. Watching the news has been heartbreaking. I highly recommend checking out the nonprofit I.D.E.S. if you’re looking to donate.
Current mood Happy. Looking forward to the weekend!
Current question Have you ever had someone tell you that you look like your name should be something other than your real name? I cannot tell you how many people have told me I look like my name should be Daisy. I’ve also gotten Alice, Genevieve, and Luna (apparently I look like Luna Lovegood?), but I get Daisy a lot. So much so that my parents call me Daisy instead of Allie.
