Life Lately in Pictures

Hi and happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas 😊

I’ll be blogging all about ours later this week but I wanted to share some pictures from the days before the holiday first. There’s something so special about the weeks leading up to Christmas. It’s an exciting and busy time!

So, here are some photos of what life looked like for us in the time before Christmas 🎄

Toddler girls and baby wearing matching blue plaid dresses

Sadie picked out her dress for church on the Sunday before Christmas and we were happily surprised when her cousins Remi and Raven showed up wearing the same dress!

Unplanned cousin matching for the win Of course we had to do a little photoshoot😬

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!

Renovations

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.

Lola

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 ;).
