Seven Snapshots of My Life Lately

1. Snow. Pittsburgh has been hit with bits of snow here and there this month and it’s absolutely stunning.

2. Bible and coffee time. Spending time in God’s word is truly the best part of my day.

3. This. I read this quote from a devotional I’m doing in the YouVersion Bible App and it rang so true.

4. Catfinated mug. My father-in-law’s girlfriend gave me this mug and I love it!

5. Malcolm. He has random times during the day where he’s super snuggly and he lets me hold him like a baby. It’s the best.

6. My dad and Malcolm. They’re like two peas in a pod when my dad visits!

7. Cake. Still practicing cakes for Hannah’s bridal shower! This was a vanilla cake with strawberry filling. After I took this picture I frosted it with buttercream. ‘Twas delicious 🙂

What would a snapshot of your life lately look like?

Things I want to remember

Giving a devotional on the book of Esther at my church. I loved it! I’m so glad my mom could come, too. She had to do some unexpected traveling that day for a family emergency, but made sure she saw me speak first. Thanks, mom! If anyone wants me to post about the actual devotional, I would love to.

How hard working and talented my husband is. Kitchen renovations have been happening in the Zottola household!

How wonderfully challenging it is to write and edit a book.

How much I adore animals. Everything about them makes me so happy. I would love to have another dog. And a cat or two. I just need to convince Jimmy ;).

Pet sitting

How lovely freshly baked bread and cookies smell and taste.

That I can’t trust Lola as much as I’d like to. The little miss has been quite the escape artist lately! I was mowing the lawn on Saturday and she snuck out our back door (while Jimmy was working on our kitchen renovations) and blew past me. I ran after her and thankfully caught her. Jimmy carried her home and she looked so guilty. It was actually really cute, haha. It’s comforting to know she still has lots of spunk, even though she’s almost 10-years-old.

And just for fun, one thing I’d like to forget is the feeling of accidentally dropping our oven on my foot while Jimmy and I were moving it. I thought about posting a picture buuuuut I don’t think anyone really wants to see it ;).
