We have some of the best people in our lives. From old friends, to our closest friends, to our neighbors, to family, to our church family. Despite my desire to deepen many of these relationships, Bob and I decided to make time for a few people and really invest in them. For us, that looks like connecting once a week through a playdate, dinner, or lengthly this-is-where-I'm-at text message. Which may not sound like much, but if I'm honest it's difficult to make a text message happen most weeks. Lame? yes. Which is why I'm praising God for friends with similar personalities who get it and get me.
Gosh, friends are so important and I don't want to be done with this parenting thing (not that we're ever really done) and find I don't know my husband and I have no friends. I'm confident I can't be who I need to be without these two relationships, marriage and friendship, and I don't want to lose sight of that, even if there isn't much time for it right now.
|Well, that was a fun night.|
|Happy Birthday, Tracy! We love you!!|
|Brooks makes the best faces.|
Happy Father's Day, Daddy!
|I could eat these two dishes all summer long.|
Boiled potatoes and green beans with loads of butter, salt, and pepper.
Tomato, cucumber, onion, basil salad.
|Hands down the biggest eater in our house|
|A friend took me to her favorite vendors at the farmer's market. I'm in love.|
|Oh man, this was a hard day. We had so many battles, me and this one, that when it came time to leave for brother's baseball game I didn't have it in me to fight a wardrobe battle. So to the ball park we went, mismatched shoes and all.|
