A Snapshot Of My Week

Hello Friends!I wanted to give you a little update on what has been going on in my life this past week:

  • I got to hang out with my sweet friend Alexis before she left for her China adventure. She is going to be teaching there for a year and I could not be more excited for her! Alexis and her family have meant the world to me since moving to Atlanta and it is so hard to see her go. Luckily, I still have Jess and David! It also makes it so much easier when I know that it is such an amazing opportunity for her.


  • I finished my 120th book of 2018! It is surreal to see that number continue to grow. Next week I will be sharing my books from August. Some were enjoyable and some I wish I had skipped. In the meantime, if you want to read more about my process of reading so many books, you can check it out here.


  • My Mother-in-law underwent surgery yesterday afternoon. I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has kept our family in your prayers. We are waiting on important test results, so please keep those prayers coming!


  • My Mom has been blown away by the amount of love that has been shown since our family home burned down. Within 24 hours, my sisters had HUGE piles of clothes that people had donated to them in their time of need. They have received gift cards, clothes, money, and so many prayers. It is times like these that truly renew all of my faith in humanity. Not to mention MANY important things were miraculously saved in the fire. I will post about those miracles another day!


  • This weekend Timothy and I are headed on a cruise! Our good friends Bonnie and Alison gifted us a cruise earlier this year. They fly in tonight and on Friday we will be off to Orlando. I would love to hear your tips and tricks for making the most of a cruise, or any vacation for that matter.

  1. This post is exactly why I like your blog so much. Even through all the turmoil, you focus on the positive – not an easy thing to do. Enjoy your cruise! You certainly need a break with all that’s been going on!!

    1. You made my morning! Thank you so much. We are so excited to relax for a few days:)!

  2. How fun! Although I am so sorry to hear about your family’s home, I’m glad some things were managed to be saved. Have a great weekend trip!

  3. So glad your family is doing well. Amen! There are so many kind people. Have a wonderful cruise, haven’t done one. But I’m interested in the Disney Cruise – although I’m thinking it may cost me an arm and a leg! 🤦🏽‍♀️

  4. My week:
    Visited Hill House and played with my not-a-wife and my mentor.
    AC went out in my rolling home.
    Went to a rodeo.
    Took a bunch of pictures.
    Played with a cockatoo.
    Was told to mind my own business. lol
    It’s a good week.

  6. I can’t wait to hear about your cruise! Now that we don’t live in Florida anymore, I think my partner is FINALLY willing to cruise. 🙂 I want to know if it’s worth it before I start trying to convince him to go! 🙂

    1. I will definitely let you know!☀️ I think it’s gonna be a ton of fun, hopefully you can convince him 😉
