44.52 + a little love.

November 21, 2014

I am pretty far behind on my Project 52 | Weekly Walk but I do have a few things to say about that. For one, do you all know how cold it’s been in Chicago recently?! My walks went from 4-6 days a week to… NOPE. None. Well, I am counting the mile walk from the train to the office two days a week (when it’s this cold, you’ll count anything for exercise), but I’ll tell you right now- it…

These are the (last of the) days of (Breaktober) our lives.

October 31, 2014

Good morning and happy Friday! As I write this, SNOW is coming down outside. SNOW. And I suppose while this should terrify me considering it could mean that winter comes early (and fierce) this year, I’m kind of happy about it πŸ˜‰ I’ve heard that Nashville doesn’t get too much snow, and coming from Chicago where – well, it feels like it snows 8 months out of the year, I don’t know how I feel about it yet. While I’m…

42/43.52 + Blogger Love.

October 24, 2014

Happy Friday!! Did this week fly by for anyone else? Whoa. Really though, when did it become the END of October?? This also means it’s nearing the end of my Breaktober, and while I’ve had a wonderful break, I’m also super excited to get back to it all.  Speaking of Breaktober, while I haven’t been doing my daily blog reading this month, I did catch this post from Brettni over at Bringing Up Brumfields and knew I would be sharing it today with Meagan’s…

38 – 40.52 & Southern Women.

October 4, 2014

I was so far behind on Project 52: Weekly Walk, but the catching up was worth the wait πŸ™‚ I was only able to take about one picture a week but sometimes that’s just the way it goes, right? Fall welcomed me on my walk the other day and begged me to slow down, and so – I did. I slowed my pace, I admired the tiny color starting to show in the leaves on the trees, and I breathed…

It’s Friday. (Enough said.)

September 19, 2014

Happy Friday!!! My sweet parents are back (praise!) so this will be a short one today, as I’m busy catching up with them (and still don’t have internet, haha). While they did not bring home a baby elephant for me (maybe next year), they did bring home some absolutely beautiful African jewelry – I can’t wait to share it with you guys – it’s gorgeous. Today we’ll spend the morning sharing stories and looking at pictures from their trip. Tonight…

Light, Love, and a little Steven Seagal.

September 12, 2014

LIGHT. Thank you all SO much for your continued prayers for my parents and their group in Kenya, and also for the Kenyan people. I can’t tell you how much that means to me and to them. Yesterday, I included a picture in my post of a Kenyan woman looking up into the light. Last night, my dad emailed me to check in (they are all okay) and to share the story behind the picture. It is important to me to…

A Prayer Request + Friday Faves

September 5, 2014

Today is a busy and exciting day in my fam – this morning I’m driving my parents to the airport as they head to Kenya with a small group for two weeks for a medical mission trip. Will you guys please keep them in your prayers? I’m praying for their safety and health while they’re there, but I’m also praying that God’s love to just really be felt by everyone involved. I can only imagine the things they might see…
