inspiration right now

reading: Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild by Mary Kassian. Have wanted to read this book for so long, and am so excited to finally dive into it. Half way through it and so far soooo good and very challenging. A book I know I will be re-reading very often.

listening: When We're Together by Mark Harris.

loving: The sound of rain outside my open window...that's a sound I will never tire of hearing!

food: Raw zucchini. Believe me, it's super good.

excited about: The fact that I now have 2 extra days to spend at home. Looking forward to filling those days and finding a new rythm in my week.

inspiration: Little people..little kiddos. Watching them interact, be so happy and love life so much really challenges me in the fact that sometimes I just made too big of a deal out of things. Inspires me to just let go and smile more...life is so short!

color: Pink. It's bright and fresh and such a happy color. Oh so perfect for spring.


spring bouquets

Loving all the pretty flowers growing everywhere.  Loving that they can be picked and brought inside.
It's so fun mixing them all up in different little arrangements,  finding the perfect vase, then filling up the middle of the table with them all!  This has to be one of my favorite things about spring. ♥  


holga snapshots

oh April! why must you be so busy? I can't believe it's been so long since I posted. Time goes by so fast, and I never once thought about it. oh well. Life has been sooooo busy and hectic. So much going on, places to go, so much to do and complete. It's a good busy though ( most of the time! )  Sometimes I want it all go away, and find myself complaining about it, because at times, it's so overwhelming and tiring. But then I remember that I am so blessed that I even have these opportunities. So blessed that I even have the ability to do some of these things. I really do have an incredible life, incredible family and such a merciful and loving heavenly father!  And I know this season will soon pass, and I will probably wish it back.  
So, I haven't had much time for pictures, but I have managed to take a few snapshots with my holga lens. Love that thing.

hello april

Roses are already blooming...I can't believe it! Picked the first rose of the year today, and stuck it in a little tiny glass vase.  Put it on my dressser where I can see it when I wake up ♥  Pretty little thing.

Loving so much that spring has arrived!
Also loving this pretty little tune right now.
