I Swam Across... I Jumped Across For You... Oh What A Thing To Do... 'Cause You Were All Yellow

As I begin a photo journey with some dear friends revolving around a new theme each week and 2-5 pictures being posted on our individual blogs, I started by taking pictures of my daily week on my phone to fit this weeks theme of "Yellow".  I will work harder to take great pictures, but this week I wanted you to see my life through simple, plain images of things that were not so special, but still a part of my days.  These were things that made me smile and in a strange way, got me through my week. 

This Week's Theme: Yellow


These sit in my bathroom and make me smile in the mornings.  They were the cake topper at a friend's wedding that I was in and they were at her rehearsal dinner for each member of the bridal party to take home.  I love them.


This cheesy danish surprise from a co-worker made my transition into a new office at work a little more bearable.  You see a silly picture of a pastry, I see my first day at my new desk.


Cade is such a special little boy.  People are wearing these bracelets to remember to pray for him as we join together as a community to support the Spinello's.  It is truly amazing how God works.


Trader Joes bathroom door - I know its strange, but as I closed the door and saw that it was yellow I thought of my dear friends doing this photography project with me and snapped a quick photo. 


Bill gave me these sunflowers for our 1-year anniversary.  I love that boy with all my heart.  He melts me and makes me laugh and smile.

I look forward to doing this photography project weekly with you all in the coming weeks/months/years.  This coming week's theme is "Let There Be Light".  I can't wait to see what we each come up with!

In the Nursery: Whole Hearted Parenting Manifesto

I recently finished a book by Brene Brown titled, DaringGreatly .  It really moved me, and I am definitely still processing it. At the beginning of the book I wasn’t resonating deeply with the topic of vulnerability, as most people will tell you I am an “open book”.  I will answer most questions without holding back and love to deep dive into good conversation.  However, what I came to realize through her many examples is that we all wrestle with vulnerability, guilt and shame throughout this book even if is more momentary than constant.  I gleaned SO MUCH from this book that I did not anticipate, and I thought I would share this Parenting Manifesto that she put right at the end of the book.  I am printing it and framing it for our nursery, as I think it communicates some deep parts of my heart cry for parenting my kiddos well. I hope this resonates with someone else as much as it did with me.   I needed these words to remind me that parenting is not a checklist,

At the Library - May through September 2019 Reading

We had another baby in May (SO much more on that later) and blogging has obviously taken a back seat, but I am still reading for pleasure and have managed, in my sons first four months of life, to complete these 8 books!  Y'all, I remember a time when even completing 2 books a year would have sincerely sounded daunting, much less with a newborn.  If you want to read more, you can find the time!  Take stock of your days and see where you are wasting hours.  For some of these, I listened to the audio book while I was pumping or watering the garden.   Rather than give you an individual breakdown of each of these books, I just want to report I found them all incredibly enjoyable.  A total cross section of a food memoir to a psychology deep dive to nature centric novels, I would recommend them all in different capacities.   We have fallen a bit behind on our Bible reading, but we WILL finish by the end of the year. You do not make it to September

A Penny For Your Thoughts - On Insecurity and Looking Back

23 Years Old and so Insecure - 10 Years Ago I have felt compelled to write about something lately, and been shying away from it, which is not my typical style.  As I look back over my life, I have recently realized that I finally feel like "enough".  I know my worth is in the Lord and I know I am beautiful and worth people's time, but that has not always been my story.  Far too often from the ages of 12 to 30, I defined my worth by whether someone was interested in dating me or not and after I got married, whether people "liked me" and wanted to be my friend or to hire me.  Was I pretty enough?  Interesting enough? Worth someone's time?  Talented enough?  Smart enough? etc... Recently, as pictures pop up in my Timehop (an app that shows pictures taken the same day as far back as it can reach through social media and the camera roll on my phone), I distinctly remember feeling like I was either fat or unattractive in most pictures.  I remember being
