Family Time

A few weeks ago my family and I met in Orlando for some fun and sun (which didn't happen since it rained all week 😭). It was the first family vacation we'd taken in a while and the first since we've all grown up. Family vacation used to mean piling in the car and preparing for hours of interrupted personal space. Now we all get on planes to see each other.

This pattern is still so foreign. When did I get old enough for this to be the new normal?? While I'm still in denial about that, there's also a romance to it. There's a thrill to answering the inevitable question of, "Where are you going?" with "Family vacation" and knowing that your clan is descending onto an unsuspecting location.

Bibliophile, Party of One

If you know anything about me, it's probably the fact that I LOVE books. I impulse buy them all the time and typically have at least one, if not three, in my purse at any given moment. And, confession, I have two boxes of books still in my car.

A few weeks ago someone asked me why I love books so much. I fumbled something out about it being a way to unwind at the end of the day, but there's really so much more to it.

Morning Vibes

I woke up at 4:15 today. It was one of those mornings where I tossed and turned and finally gave up on ever getting back to sleep. So I flicked on the light and tucked in for scripture study and am now peeling myself out of bed to work out at the cheerful hour of 5 a.m. I always begrudge these mornings but I think secretly I might love them. These are always the days where I get a million things done. So here's to productivity on a Wednesday. ✌🏻
