smiles, sweat, stress, and serenity

My life has been all of these things this last week.  This last weekend was all four as my church held a special service at a local camping park (the same beautiful park where Andrew and I were married).  The weather was very nice, which was a blessing as we had no AC.  We had very little time to prepare, but everything turned out wonderfully in the end.

List Burning, Anyone?

When I was single, sometime during highschool, I made three lists.  Each one had certain things listed about what I wanted in a man someday.
The first was the "Must Be" List.  He must be a Christian.  He must hold to the same Theological beliefs as myself.  He must desire purity.  He must love God.  He must want children.  He must believe in homeschooling (or at least be supportive of it).  On this list was the no brainer, duh!, stuff.

Friday Favorites {No. 34} Midsummer Days

The last few weeks have involved simple, little days of craziness.  I have felt quite busy, yet most days haven't involved a ton of activities.  Maybe it is that sweet laze that is mid summer.

take a trip to my kitchen

Yes, please do.  There are still no curtains on the windows, but everything else is ready for you.  You could come by some morning when I'm still bleary-eyed enough that I don't mind you seeing the dishes in the sink.  I'll make us both some coffee (or tea, if you prefer).  You will have to try a spoonful of our raw honey from out west in your drink, it truly is amazing.

Friday Favorites {No. 33} Free and Brave

Oh yes, it has been forever since I did a Friday Favorites.  Mostly because I didn't feel those posts were too super interesting... I'm over that now though.  ;-) 

My family celebrated the 4th of July with another pastor's family from our church.  We had such an amazing time of fellowship and hilarious fun.
