– My sister’s 25th birthday! There has been lots of celebrating going on and there is still plenty to come…girls night at Carrabbas, yesterday’s lunch/cupcakes at Tropical Smoothie, this coming Sunday’s family dinner and then next Tuesday’s dinner with dad celebration (he always takes his two girls out for a nice dinner to celebrate whenever one of us has a birthday). I love birthday’s and I think every birthday should come with a weeklong celebration.

– My calm before the storm. It’s a good storm though. It’s been a nice few weeks with a lighter workload, knowing the busy days are officially beginning as Spring wedding season is about to kickoff. I LOVE my job, but it’s always refreshing to have a little bit of break.

– My tree. I told you last week there would be a picture this Friday. Without further ado…here’s the booger that makes me smile as I pull into my driveway. Keep in mind, when I planted this tree almost 6 years ago, it fit it my SUV and was maybe 4-5 feet tall. Besides my kids, this is the only breathing thing I’ve kept alive for an extended period of time.

– The bible study we recently started at bible study- “David: Seeking a Heart Like His” by Beth Moore. It’s been such a blessing and so powerful these past 2 weeks as we deeply study the life of David. We’re only 2 weeks into the 11 week study and I feel like I’ve already felt the Lord changing my heart in drastic measures and it gets me so excited for what lies ahead in the coming weeks. I desperately want to be a person who rests my soul with God rather than wrestling all of my life with unmet expectations.

– Publix. Weird, huh? Yesterday, I went to Publix for the first time in probably 3 months and I totally forgot how much I LOVE that place. I always end up going to Target and Costco for our groceries since they’re in the same location and it’s just more convenient. When I stepped into Publix yesterday and the instant smell hit me as I walked in, I was quickly reminded why it is pretty much the best grocery store ever.

It’s wedding weekend for Laura and Chad tomorrow and I can’t wait! Here’s hoping for a wonderful weekend….
