Happy New Year! My prayer is that this year is great for each and every person visiting this little corner of the internet. If you have any prayer requests, leave them in the comments or email me. I would love to be praying for you this year ❤

Here’s what’s current in my life this month!

Current mood Content. I’m finding so much joy in the place God has me at in life right now.

Current food Chocolate pancakes. Just had a few for breakfast before sitting down to write this post.

Current excitement My brother and sister are both having their second child this year. I cannot wait to meet the new family members ❤

Current fun We filmed a vlog the other day! It includes homeschool, cooking, cleaning, Jimmy hoarding chocolate (LOL) and more. Just a normal day at our zoo 😉

Current books This midwifery memoir, this guide on essential oils, and this Bible study on Hebrews. Sadie is loving Mittens at School and God, You Make Me Feel Special.

Current need New boots. I have a pair of riding boots that are on their last leg. Does anyone have recommendations for where to get a pair of boots at a decent price?!

Current beauty product Lip balm. This season has me stocking my purse, bathroom, and car with a tube so I’m always prepared!

Current cuteness Niva sleeping in our yard. If there’s snow on the ground, she wants to be outside. She often just curls up and does the Siberian swirl (where she uses her tail to keep her nose warm) and sleeps. So cute!

Current baked good Corn bread has been hitting the spot lately.

Current drink Coffee-wise, we’re working our way through a bag of this and my favorite non-coffee drink of the moment is orange juice.

Current craving I really want to go to the National Aviary here in Pittsburgh. I think it will be opening back up soon, so hopefully Jimmy, Sadie, and I can find a day to visit. Sadie was only a few months old the last time we went and I think she would really enjoy it now!

Current fun We went to our church on New Year’s Eve for a fellowship and it was a blast. The perfect way to end 2020.

Tell me something current in your life!

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.

Yellow and cherry tomatoes and zucchini from vegetable garden

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!
