Cheers to Monday | April 25th
The Week in Review | April 19 – April 25, 2016
I’ve sat here and typed this intro probably five different times already, and each time, I highlight and delete. I’m feeling extra tired tonight and the words just aren’t “flowing” like I wish they would. It’s been a really good week, filled with friendship, encouragement, hard conversations, and growth, and I want to give those stories weight, not just breeze past them with a bullet point or two. BUT tonight just isn’t going to be the night. So, I’ll save a couple of them for a mid-week post, and leave you with a few fun tidbits until then 😉
And with that, here are some of the highlights of the past seven days!
-I got a TON done on our honeymoon photo album on Sunday afternoon! I’ll save all the details for a separate post, but suffice it to say, this creative, detail-loving heart loves having a book that holds actual, printed, real life photos and keepsakes from one of my favorite weeks of my life!
-We went to our last Foundations Class at church and feel more certain than ever after these past seven weeks that Gulf Coast is where we want to put down roots and grow deep together with the community there.
-Oh my goodness, I finally, after all these years, got a library card! If you know me then you know that I LOVE books, as in, I played librarian by myself when I was younger, I have to purposefully read books slowly so all the good parts last as long as possible, etc. When it dawned on me last week that I had FREE access to all the books my heart could desire, I immediately googled the closest library….and promptly checked out these five books, reveling in old book smell and crinkly plastic book jackets the whole time 😉
-We got our new bed (frame + box springs from Amazon + mattress) all set up!!! And it’s like sleeping on a blissful cloud of back support and cool cotton. Ahhhhhhhh.
There are so many things from this week that I could share here, but we have company out in the living room that I want to get back to, and after, I’m certain I hear yoga pants calling my name 😉 So that’s a wrap for tonight’s Cheers, friends! I hope all of you rest well, and wake up tomorrow ready to tackle a new day! I’ll be working on another post for later this week where I share a bit about some of the recent marriage moments that have changed the way we do things now, so stay tuned! ❤️
