Lazy Saturday

   Well, It's Saturday night, the girls are in bed and the house is quiet. Best feeling ever. Daniel and I were just talking the other day about the sense of peace that just lands on us once we know the girls are asleep. Just knowing they're warm, happy, and resting feels so good.

   Today was an incredible day. Ava woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed at 6:15 this morning... and we were dragging. Hallelujah for Coffee! One of my good friends Josh came over this morning and took some pictures of us just living life. Let me just say I am usually very uncomfortable getting my picture taken, but when the person taking it is your best friend from grade school it is a lot easier! It was awesome to have Josh spend the morning with us. Go take a peek at his blog ( and see just how awesome he is. Here is a photo Daniel snapped while Josh was here this morning. He and Ava became fast friends.

   All in all, I would chalk today up as a win. We got some awesome family time today. Thank you stormy weather! Usually when Saturday rolls its lazy self around we are consumed with projects and chores that suck the minutes out of our hands. Such a bummer. Don't get me wrong, we LOVE doing projects and making our home exactly how we want it, but sometimes it's nice to have a breather. I can't tell you how often Daniel and I will look at each other on a Sunday night and say, " Where did the weekend go?" It was so windy and chilly outside today we were forced to batten down the hatches and hang out inside. It. Was. Awesome. Just look at them... Seriously. The cutest ever. 

And real quick, Veggie update! They are officially planted in there raised beds. However, the day after I planted them we had a mad crazy wind storm that beat them up. I lost a few, and am still nursing the rest back to life. But we are hopeful that they will flourish!

Grace & Peace
