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!

Currently: July 2020

How is it July already?! I kind of feel like it’s still March. Anyone else feel that way? Regardless, it’s July and I am loving summer! Here’s what’s currently going on in my life with a few affiliate links included!

Current books Just finished up Simple Pleasures and now I’m onto this memoir. Sadie has been loving the crafts from this book and learning about colors in this lift-a-flap book. Jimmy and I are still reading our Couple’s Devotional and The Purpose Driven Life together as well!

Current food Baked beans have been extra delicious lately. Something about summer makes me crave ’em.

Current toddler product Sadie has had this little trampoline for a while, but we brought it outside for the first time and it was like a whole new toy, haha.

Current drink Starbucks coffee. Jimmy bought me the Komodo dragon beans for my birthday and we have been loving our morning cup even more than usual. 

Current baked good Cowboy cookies! I had never made them until recently and now I’m hooked. I have to have one every day 🙂

Current pet product Niva is still blowing her coat like nobody’s business, and this brush has been helpful!

Current joy Sadie growing up and understanding more and more. It’s really neat to talk to her and she understands what we’re saying. 

Current blessing Spending time with family ❤

Current project Our back patio renovation is still trucking along thanks to Jimmy’s hard work! He added some plants and fresh mulch and rocks yesterday.

Current fun Making a scrapbook from our camping trip pictures. I thought about making an album online and having it printed, but that takes all the fun out of it for me. I love figuring out layouts, picking stickers, and using colored paper. 

Current cuteness We had a cookout yesterday and my cousin from New York was visiting and brought her daughter. We took pictures of my niece, Sadie, and my cousin’s daughter and they are too sweet!
