Currently: October 2022

It’s October! How do you feel about this month? Do you love it and look forward to the upcoming holidays or do you look back wistfully on summer? I’m a bit of both. There’s so much fun fall-related stuff going on, I’m excited for the coming months, but I also miss the long, warm days of summer.

Here’s what’s current in my life during the tenth month of 2022(!). As always, please share your responses for some of the prompts. I love hearing what everyone is up to and enjoying lately.


Mother’s Day Weekend in Snapshots


Friday was spent working, pet sitting, and getting gifts together for our mamas.

Malcolm likes to hang out with me while I work!

At night, we went to my mother-in-law’s and enjoyed Chinese takeout. We gave her a French press coffee maker and she reported that she loved it when she tried it out the next morning!


Saturday also included pet sitting, and a few hours spent packing up meals at our church for I.D.E.S., which stands for International Disaster Emergency Service.

I believe we packed over 20,000 meals to be shipped to mission partners and churches throughout the world. The mission partners and churches then distribute the meals to anyone in their surrounding community who is in need of food relief. It was a really great experience!

Jimmy and I also worked on our garden, which I need to blog about soon! We will be planting in within the next few weeks, and I am so pumped!


On Sunday, we went to church and then headed to my mom and dad’s for a cookout! I gave my mom this book, which was a lot of fun to customize and decorate with pictures and stickers.

After having a delicious lunch, Jimmy and I headed back home because I had some pups to take care of. Then we went to evening Bible study and then bed because we were tuckered out! It was a fun-filled weekend 🙂

Tell me about your weekend!
