Listening To:

All Sons and Daughters
I’m absolutely in love with their sound and the heart of worship they portray through it. Their lyrics speak directly to my spirit.

Dave Ramsey's book Entreleadership
This is a book that my husband recommended to me. I’m finally at a place where I can make my photography business a little more official, but I want to make sure I’m doing it the right way. This book is super motivating and spiritually based. It’s got extremely sound advice so I’m hopeful I can glean some good information from it.

Diana Gabaldon's second book in the Outlander series, Dragonfly in Amber
It moves a bit slower than the first book, but it’s got the same mystery, action, romance, and science fiction rolled into one book that made me love the first one. It’s a loooong read, but I just love the main characters so much I can’t stop reading it! If you like historical fiction, I strongly suggest you check out this series!
Not much, to be honest. I’ve been sick with a nasty stomach virus and I’m just now able to handle a few things besides saltines and Gatorade. It’s brutal being sick when you’re pregnant. You can’t take regular medicines, you’re already exhausted, and your immune system is pretty weak. I’m glad to be feeling somewhat normal again.

This should come as no surprise: FALL! Oklahoma weather does this silly thing where it gives us a week or so of nice, “cooler” temperatures (80s) making us think it’s just going to keep going down and down and then all of a sudden it just shoots right back up into triple digits! Sneaky… Nothing says Autumn like drinking a Pumpkin Spice Latte in 103 degree heat, right? I’m ready to slip on a big sweater, skinny jeans, and boots for some lovely Fall days!

Election years. I just can’t handle the political posts by people who are uninformed or misinformed. The left is so far left and the right is so far right that it really makes my head hurt. Part of me wants to just yell and scream and correct them, but the other part of me just wants to stay completely out of it. I’ll vote come election day, and I don’t need to drag anyone else down on my way to the polling place. Why can’t we be friends?
Family time. Ryan is officially done with college! His graduation ceremony is later this month and that means we get him all to ourselves in the evening! He had previously been doing homework five nights a week and that makes for a sad Momma and Vessie. We like playing games and having dinner and bath time and bedtime together in the evenings now! So grateful for a man who works hard and honors his commitments, but I’m also glad he’ll be around a lot more!
Wanting to Remember
That Vesper clapped for the very first time this morning. She mimics sounds now and says “Dadda,” “uh oh,” and “Ba” (bottle). She’s crawling and pulling up on everything around her and her top two front teeth popped through last weekend! I love seeing that big ol’ cheesy grin with those teeny tiny teeth. She also learned to “high five” a couple of days ago. It’s just a really wonderful age and I want to soak up every minute of it.

Humans of New York is absolutely my jam. The candid style of the photos is just breathtaking! And  you know that there are things you can only see in New York! But the captions are what make the photos really great. Check it out!

Yay! Love to see you posting again.
Can totally relate to the political dialog. I also get irritated at the complainers who don't even vote. If you aren't part of the solution you are probably part of the problem, right???

Keep those posts coming!
