Currently: August 2020

Welcome to August! Here’s what’s currently going on in my life this month.

Current joy Gardening. Walking out to the garden to see how all the fruits and vegetables are growing is one of my favorite parts of each day.

Current book The Story of My Life by Helen Keller.

Current memory verse Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

Current indulgence Walking around a store by myself. Jimmy put Sadie to bed last night and I spent a while just walking around Target and totally zoning out. I came home with a box of cereal and Jimmy was like “That’s all you bought after all that time there?!” haha. He didn’t understand how I can go to a store and enjoy just looking at stuff without the pressure of a fidgety toddler.

Current cuteness Seeing Sadie with her cousins and friends at the Youth Summer Days our church had at a local park yesterday. The time with other moms + watching Sadie enjoy the park and her friends and family = a winning combo for us girls.

Current mood Reflective. I feel like I’m due for a post on my thoughts about motherhood lately because they’ve been swirling in my brain lately and I need to write (type?) them out.

Current craving Time with Jimmy. He’s planning on taking a staycation at some point soon and I cannot wait. Can you tell my love language is quality time? 😉

Current fun I painted Sadie’s toenails for the first time the other night!

Current food Bunny grahams have been super tasty in a bowl of yogurt before bed each night. Also loving English muffins topped with runny eggs.

Current blessing Help from family. I went to the dentist the other day and my mom offered watched Sadie for me. It’s such a blessing to have help and love from my family! Just knowing that my family wants and asks to spend time with my child is such a wonderful feeling ❤

My mom and Sadie are bffs. Also, us girls have gone to stores together and had people ask if Sadie and I are both my mom’s daughters. We always get a good laugh out of that.

Current drink Starbucks Veranda Blend. I know a lot of people think Starbucks coffee is a bit bitter, but I’ve found this blonde roast to be extra smooth.

Current prayer For Sadie’s eye to heal. I mentioned she has a nasolacrimal duct obstruction and was prescribed some antibiotic eye drops to try and treat it. I’m praying the drops work so we don’t have to do anything more serious.

Tell me something current in your life!

Should Be, A New Collar, and A Cousin Sleepover

I have a few precious moments of free time this morning and should be cleaning our bathroom, or making the bed, or getting some real estate work done. Instead, I found myself with a warm mug of coffee and my laptop.

Owning a husky has been an amazing experience so far. One of the only downsides of living the husky life is the fact that Niva is an escape artist.

When we first brought her home, I bought an ID tag for her collar, but it kept falling off. I finally decided to get a collar with her name and my phone number printed on it and I feel a little better should she run off again, lol.

You know how I mentioned I had some free time? It’s all thanks to my parents babysitting Sadie! Yesterday after the Youth Summer Days at the park, my mom offered to take her home for a sleepover and I was 100% on board with that idea.

My sister’s daughter, Caroline, slept over as well. They had their first cousin sleepover and I was told they followed each other all around the house and were playing and laughing.

When Sadie first met Caroline, I thought my heart would burst from happiness. Seeing them truly starting to interact each time they’re together is a whole other thing, though! Man, God is so good. ❤

What are your plans this weekend?

Are you close with your cousins?
