These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things - Summer Baseball Games

There is nothing like a baseball game.
 
 
I know, I know - you have heard this from me before, but let me tell you, it never gets old to me.  I can't go to too many games.  I want to one day have season tickets with Bill and go all the time: Get to know the people around us, cheers victories with them, and like we are not surrounded bystrangers.  The ambiance, the food, the drinks, and just the attitude of baseball is so fun and carefree.  It is a sport where I feel like the entire time I am watching, I am a part of something so fun and worth my time - it brings so much joy to my heart.
 
This past Friday the Baltimore Orioles were in town, and I always attempt to make it out to support my home team and wear my Orioles t-shirt :)  It was a blast (and not just because the Orioles won), but mostly because it was the best of times with wonderful friends!  I went with a pretty big group (12 of us to be exact) and we laughed and danced and ate and just relaxed.  What a lovely thing to do on a Friday night! 
 
There is something so nostalgic about a baseball game, and I think I will always just love to be at a game waching and smiling. 
 
Happy Tuesday!

  1. We are season ticket holders for the Padres, and there is nothing more fun than going to the games and getting to know people! I LOVE baseball and even though the Padres are awful, it's just a good time, every time! So glad you had an awesome time with friends!

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

Floating Lanterns and Fascinations...

I am a little ashamed to admit I have been following the Bachelorette this season.   However, I do want to justify my actions (for those of you that instantly rolled your eyes).   I am fascinated by the psychology of this show, and also by the quest for love that people think can be fabricated and discovered over three or four spectacular days together.   I could go on and on, but the reason I preface my post with this tangent is to say, that I saw a couple of the participants on this show partake in an event in Thailand that I found myself wanting to get more information on, and when I did it did not disappoint. They took part in a Floating Lantern Festival in a small Thai village.   When I looked up this festival, I found that there is one in Thailand where the lanterns float in the air and one in Japan where the lanterns float on the water.   Both fascinate me and intrigue me.   The floating lantern festival in Thailand looks overwhelmingly amazing.   In the show, they painted wi
