7:22am – My mornings have been so lazy lately. I don’t think that there has ever been a time in my life that I’ve slept in as late as I do now. How ridiculous is that? Kevin always gets up first and takes a shower. When I hear him turn the faucet off, that’s my cue to get out of bed and get Chloe taken care of. This is generally perfect timing so that I’m hopping in the shower as soon as he’s done.
8:13am – Of course, getting out of bed as late as I did Thursday makes me later than I’d like to be for work, but of course I can’t leave without giving Chloe some peanut butter. I don’t have a set time that I have to be at work by, but I’m generally there between 8 and 8:15am.
8:14am – I just had to grab a picture of our front porch on my way out. I even posted it on instagram saying, “I’ll probably hate myself for it in a few weeks, but I love these leaves!” Luckily it only takes about 5 minutes for me to drive to work, so I didn’t end up getting there too late. I hope I never take this short, stress-free commute for granted.
5:44pm – Not pictured, food. We reheated some leftovers in the toaster oven from the night before, so it didn’t take any time at all. I’ve been trying to work through my family recipe book so this meal was the chicken casserole from Aunt Ellie. I’d give it 5 stars, especially because it was quick and easy. As per usual, Kevin washed the dishes and I dried them. It’s always so much better to get the dishes completely done instead of leaving them to dry on the counter for what would most likely be days.
6:27pm – See what I mean? It’s amazing isn’t it? Originally, I wasn’t sure what I was going to put here, but this sign from Small Woods turned out to be the perfect size (if you click through the link, ours is the XL version). It reminds me of Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
10:50pm – Typically, the guys get together on Thursday nights, so sometimes the girls will too. This time, it was just Sarah and I, so we talked the whole night and I got a sneak peek of the presentation she was doing Saturday for the Bravery Board. I’m super thankful to have best friends as neighbors.
11:35pm – After we got home, we played with Chloe in the backyard. She’s getting better at bringing back the ball or Frisbee when we play fetch. I love photos of her after playing because she’s always smiling.
There ya have it, a whole day worth of photos. If you haven’t seen my previous posts, you can find them here (May), here (August) and here (September). I just love doing this, and I could totally see myself doing it on a monthly basis. I guess it goes without saying, but life goes so quickly and just seeing how different life was a couple months ago makes me realize how important it is to document my life.
