It’s the weekend!!  It means a little less right now as every day feels a little bit the same, but it still means less emails, less deadlines and a little more relaxation (hopefully)!

I am both surprised and proud that I did achieve my goal for this week (mentioned last Friday).  I feel like I was mindful and intentional of how I spent my time.  We made better choices this week than last.  I enjoyed the consistency and feel like I’ve “earned” some total decompress time this weekend.

There are plans on sharing a full blog post about this soon, but I wasn’t able to wear my engagement ring for a year because the stone kept getting loose.  We chose to reset it last year and just got it back!  After not wearing it in what feels like so long, so it almost feels like I got engaged again which is definitely fun.

I started a new devotional and have been determined to set aside time each morning to be still.  If I can’t find the time now, I know I never will.  So even just trying to make good habits is enough to give me a positive attitude for the day ahead.

A few things I’m loving:

30 Home Projects to Tackle This Weekend – love 18, 22, 27 and 30.

These earrings.

This ring stack that is so eye-catching.

Ina Garten’s cheddar corn chowder that is so, so good.

This tee I bought in 3 colors.

The video I plan on watching whenever my “kit” comes in (say prayers).

  1. We went to a marriage conference to hear Paul David Tripp and loved his style of teaching. I have this same devotion and really enjoy it. Best way to start the day with some time with the Lord.

  2. Loved so many things in this post. We went to a marriage conference with Paul Tripp in February at our church in Atlanta and it was so good and helpful for our marriage. I’m going to have to check out his devotional, too. It’s been a long time since I’ve made Ina’s corn chowder so It’s time to make it again. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. That bust is gorgeous. I’ve been reading daily devotionals at lunch time. I love that you mentioned that! I think it brings a great sense of purpose and peace to my days.
