The Week in Review | May 3 – May 9, 2016
This past week and the week ahead feel busy in the “lots of little practical things that need to get done” kind of way. Hair appointments. AC repair. Picking up stamps. Plumbing repair. Mailing packages (this one is super fun for me!). Taking the cars in to get serviced. The usual, day to day life things. It’s not lost on me that I have a work schedule right now that allows us to get a lot of those things done during the day so that we can spend most of our evenings and days off together investing time into the things that are really important to us, and that’s such a gift for this season ♥ What are you thankful for in this season of your life/marriage? It fills me up so much when I take the time to really stop and think about it, and maybe it will do the same for you!
And with that, here are some of the highlights of the past seven days!
-I met a friend from church for a morning walk, and she introduced me to a new walking path/park that’s right up the road from us but I’d never been to…and I was definitely missing out! It’s a one mile loop around a beautiful creek/lake with tons of wildlife, huge fields for the dogs to play in, and all kinds of pretty views!
-On Sunday, after church and our #SundayStarbucks, I wasn’t quite ready to go home yet…it was SO pretty out…so we drove over to the beach and walked along the shore in the water, which was crystal clear and tinted a pretty teal color further out! It was so fun to see all the families out enjoying the beautiful day, with squealing kiddos running in and out of the water. But thankfully, we didn’t see any fish 😉
-I’m sending out a Salty Pine Paper Co. print today, which means I get to go back to the post office (!!!!!!!!).
-We got our AC repaired!!!! Even though it’s something we sometimes took for granted living up north where it never got super hot, we are incredibly thankful for it down here, especially as the summer approaches and we start hermitting indoors for fear of melting on our way out to our cars 😉
-And last but NOT least, I still have no idea what/where our secret little getaway this weekend is (I LOVE surprises)! I’ll be sure to fill y’all in on all the fun details in next Monday’s Cheers! ?
