tis the gift to be simple

My life is simple.  Sometimes I struggle with that.

It can be hard sometimes for your life to consist of waking up, working out, eating, showering, picking out an outfit, doing makeup and hair... then... checking the blog and facebook... then... doing whatever dishes are sitting in the sink... then... figuring out what's for supper... then... making sure the house is tidy... then... checking the blog and facebook again... then... maybe, if I feel like it, playing the piano for a while, making a piece of jewelry, or diving into the pile of sewing projects I have... then... what movies have I still not watched???

Days come, days go... and I can forget to see the joy.

Friday Favorites {No. 22} Love, Snow, and Worship

Wow!!!  SO much has happened since my last post!  I've included a couple of "Valentine's Day" pictures and lots of pictures from the Teen Retreat I went to last Friday through Monday.

My amazing husband really treated me well for Valentine's Day!  In return, I baked a couple dozen of Andrew's favorite oatmeal raisen cookies and made him a card.  :-)  How fun!

Tribute to a special man

This dance was the only time on my wedding day that I cried.

Even as a married woman, my Dad is one of my favorite people to talk to and sit down over a cup of coffee with. The fact that he still calls me every so often just to see how I am and that he desires to support, encourage, and spend time with my husband just reminds me of how much God has blessed me with my Dad.

Friday Favorites {No. 21} Simple Life

Sometimes life is simple.  This week was one of those simple life weeks.  So there are fewer pictures than usual, but they sum up my days quite well.

Josh got a brand new hat and was really enjoying wearing it when I visited with my family after church last Sunday.  Isn't he so cute?!

Recipe Time... Andrew's Stuffed Peppers!

Yes, this recipe was created by my husband!  He is an amazing cook and it is really fun when he is home and has time to make a meal for us.  We had been wanting to do stuffed peppers for a while and so he came up with this one evening and I got to just stand by and take pictures!
