It's dark and gray and mid-March. I can hear the Madness in the background as I peruse my long list of blogs. I'd love to be writing this with more wit and spunk today, but it's just not in me. It's a cuddle in a down comforter, drink a pot of coffee and watch your favorite movie kind of a day...but, alas, I have a two year old who has yet to discover the beauty in doing nothing. So, it will probably be more of a keep the damage to a minimum, read the same books repeatedly, dress/undress baby dolls, build blanket "nents" and drink a pot of coffee kind of day.
I think I'm ok with that.
In the meantime, here are of few of my recent (and random) favorite things:
The Table Project : this is a fantastic social media tool my husband stumbled upon. We just recently launched it at hopecity and it has proven to be a great way to help gel our brand new community.
This Message: Brian and I had the chance to visit one of our favorite local churches and hear a friend speak on Romans 6. I love the beauty and simplicity of the gospel that shines through. True hope.
I totally want to make this recipe for Elli (when I do, I'll let you know how it turns out). She has a serious love for "doe-fish". Serious love. I don't buy them, however, because I don't want to encourage empty or processed foods. This homemade version seems to have a little bit of redeeming value.
Strong Love is by far the most played album in our house right now. Elli and I LOVE it. You can't really go wrong with a little Jon Thurlow in your life.
This DIY project. I can't wait to move (ugh, will that EVER happen?!) and possibly experiment with this somewhere in our new house.
