Around here....

These days I am….

Feeling…. excited about leaving for a trip to New York next week. I’ve never been before, only driven through the state.

Looking forward…. to taking this adventure with my sister in law. We get to drive_ talk_ sing_ and drink salted caramel mocha’s together and I can’t wait.

Reaching out…. like never before. Because I have to. Because it’s imperative that i get out of my comfort zone.

Learning…. how much I really need those girlfriends and relationships that are real and raw and honest.

Practicing…. letting go whenever I'm hurt repeatedly by the same person. Forgiving_ letting go_ and moving forward so that I can move forward.

Appreciating…. so much my husband and the way he supports me in every way. He is my biggest fan and greatest support.

Noticing…. how we as a family, all of us, chose joy in the midst of a scary situation this week.

Believing…. Phil 1:6_ that he who began a good work in me will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Loving…. my Fall wreath hanging out on my front door. It makes my door a little more happier. And happy front doors are the bomb.

Happy Friday.
