2017. Every day. (02.05.17)

I love taking pictures, the every day, the mundane, the big, the fun, the celebrating, even the hard. Images I want to remember.  So, this year, I’m documenting my everyday. A photo a day for my FB/IG and then writing the stories of each on my blog weekly. 
So, welcome to (February) 2017!

Several people have asked me if I am still lettering, and yes, I am. But, only a limited amount per month. February has had several orders and this was a fun one, custom pages going into a 2017 planner. I love a good planner and think this is such a fun gift, and even more special that it is personalized with words all about someone that they will see all year long.

I want to remember this picture of the Super Bowl in Houston, President and Mrs. Bush onto the field for the coin toss. Their love story is one for the ages.

Monday night was a fun dinner hosted by a friend who’s family has become framily. She had several girls over for dinner and crafting. The entire night was around the table, which is my favorite place to be!

Glue, glitter, scissors, hearts, makers, ribbons, letters, littles, bigs.
Perfect example of the mess is worth the memories.

Tuesday night I have class. Usually I change after work to walk Auggie and change again for class. And, this night, I didn’t have it in me. Just went in my leggings, a t and a cozy cardigan. This T is from my church women’s leadership retreat. The devoted co, a group of girls I’m so grateful to live life alongside.

Of course I’m also very devoted to Auggie. 🙂

I wrote at the end of January about my 30 day commitments for 2017 and January included no shopping. This was the first day of the year I went to Target.  And, though there were lots of cute things, I only got what I went for and left.

I love a spontaneous text from a friend for last minute plans. This is one of my dear besties who I have walked miles and miles of Houston with for 8+ years. The last year has been one of many hard talks and it is such a joy to walk along side her through trials and victories.  You can hardly tell, but she is +2 which is a long time answer for prayer and we are anxiously awaiting a May arrival of those sweet babes. Also, this was Auggie’s first walk with a friend and he was beside himself with excitement, even though he didn’t look at the camera for the picture. 🙂

Friday night my friend Kat invited me to dinner with a group of girls who were in town for a Saturday conference we were all attending. A table of strangers who sat down together and were friends immediately. Every one of these girls is working to show women in communities across the US the love of Jesus. Also, we got sneak peeks at upcoming books, and launches of fun things coming soon! I love sitting by those who cheer others on, without one ounce of competition.

I don’t really have the words yet to process LIT, a one day event hosted by Beth Moore to equip and speak into women who have a desire to teach, speak, write and lead in their churches and ministries. There were 750 girls from likely every state across the US and a message so tender that spoke to each one of us while also esteeming us in the work we are doing. This panel was the end of the day, big “sisters”, “aunts” and “mamas” to us; Beth Moore, Amanda Jones, Melissa Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Jennie Allen, Christy Nockles and Christine Caine.

Ended Saturday sitting by the same girls I started the weekend Friday night with was such a treat.

A full week of time spent doing so many things I love.
Feeling so grateful.

Thank you for reading, and would love for you to stay in touch!
