I feel like it has been a REALLY long time since I've let you guys in to see our day to day lives. I've spent some time away from social media lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't taken a thousand photos! Ha! January was quite a month for us and looking back on it makes my heart so happy.
We rang in the new year at home and we really had such a sweet night. It was bittersweet ending the year and starting a new one, but we had a fun night dressing up, cooking dinner together, and sharing a midnight kiss!
A few days later I hit the road for Athens! I spent the night with my favorite Georgia friends before picking up my sister and some gals from Passion in Atlanta. It is always fun spending some time with my people!
Before I picked up the girls I spent several hours in IKEA and it was BLISS!!!! Ha! It was such a fun time of just walking around and picking out little things for the house.
After I picked the girls up in Atlanta we took the long way home and stopped in Nashville. We walked around the Opryland hotel for a little while and they still had a lot of their Christmas decorations up! Jesus was smiling down on us for sure!! Ha!
We had some hard days at the beginning of the month. I cried. A lot. But, we also spent some sweet quiet time together. I got a new coloring book in the mail and we spent several nights together in bed just being quiet. Sweet marriage memories!
Surprise! Our friends moved in! If you don't remember, we lived with the C fam for 8 months while we built our house. We moved out in August and baby Teddie was born a week later. They decided to put their house on the market, sold quickly, and needed a place to stay for a month while they waited to close on their new house. Their new closing date got moved up, so they ended up only being here for a week and a half. But it was SO STINKIN FUN to have the "family" back together! I can't wait to show Teddie our 579543 photos together from that week and a half. Her Aunt Nicole and Uncle Tyler love her so!
Fun fact, I've been saving text messages that people send when they encourage me or tell me they are praying for us and baby C. I have a chapbook I'm making of all our photos #aswewaitforbabyc and it makes my cry thinking about all the sweet prayers that will be included!!! PS I die at that photo of me and Teddie. GOSH.
This photo makes me laugh SO HARD. We were moving them into their new house and all the pups were freaking out. I was putting some clothes in my car to take to them and Beaumont and Oakley (their pup) jumped in the car and stayed until I was finished! Ha!
The month was a challenge, but it also brought some really sweet time with the Lord. I'm so thankful for grace upon grace AMEN!!!
It "snowed" in Mississippi! We were HIGHLY disappointed in our "snow" but we still made a fun snow day out of it. If you are part of my everyday videography class you'll see a sample video I made from all my clips from our snow day!
We've gotten really into cooking and trying new things. We made crepes for breakfast a few Sunday mornings ago and we felt so fancy! Hahahah
I got to FaceTime Jamie and Bennett to celebrate Jamie's birthday!
The last weekend of the month was BEAUTIFUL springlike weather. Saturday we did some work in the yard and then sat around the fire pit with smores. Sunday after church we sat outside while Ty worked on our community group lesson and I worked through my power sheets. COME SPRING!!!!
If you made it this far, congratulations. :)
