Vacation Musings

Hello from the Outer Banks! We’re spending time with family at my parents’ beach house here in North Carolina and it has been such a fun trip thus far!

I thought I would share some thoughts and pictures while things are fresh in my mind. It’s always interesting to me how being on vacation feels like a totally different lifestyle and gives you a fresh perspective on things, you know?

Five Thoughts and Five Favorites

Hey hey! Hope everyone has had a great weekend! I’m comin’ at ya today with a few random thoughts and favorite things as of late!

Five random thoughts and musings for today:

  1. Do you think whoever invented bug repellant spray was like I think I’ll make it smell so weird that even bugs will fly away?
  2. When I finish a phone call with my family I always say “Bye, love you!” and I was *this close* to saying it to the barista at the Starbucks drive through the other day 😳
  3. Sadie kept asking for maggots the other day, and it turned out she wanted magnets 😂
  4. What is your comfort food? Mine is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or anything my mom cooks/bakes.
  5. I was reading this scripture about how our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit and I was like whoa, it makes so much sense. We worship in temples (our bodies), we don’t worship the temple.

A few favorites:

Baking cinnamon babka! I made it on a whim this week and I’m so glad I did. Love it!
