Life has been full the past few days. A good kind of full. The kind where you wouldn't change a thing and the days were well spent.

It's helped that there's been a reprieve from our little molar monster, which means a full night's rest and my happy baby is back. Hallelujah. The weather has been incredible as well, giving us ample time outside. It's so fun watching the kids explore nature. For Braydon that means identifying insects (or running from them) and building forts out of sticks. For Avery it means touching everything and climbing every surface she can. She will be the first child to break a bone, mark my words.

Last day with the rental car was spent eating Chick-fil-a with this cutie and running errands. 
DIY gel nails. They lasted four days before chipping and it was easy to take the polish off.  I'll do it again.

New read.
