toes {day 329}


I LOVE my job and that my toes got to spend all day free of shoes. It’s a wonderful thing.

precious {day 328} (late)

I am so thankful for my sweet, snuggly Riley who has such a gentle and kind spirit. I couldn’t help but tear up when I read this. my mom has informed me that she transcribed this exactly word for word. “I want a wedding with you later.” Holy crap. cutest kid ever. He asks about Harlow often. I love that he remembers that she’s sick, cares to ask about her, and writes her the cutest love letters the world has ever seen.

What has made you smile lately?

oops {day 327} (really late)

apparently all it takes to break a 300-something day habit (GOOD HABIT) is a five day vacation. yikes. sorry I’ve been failing so miserably. I will try to get back on board.


I am beyond grateful for my sweet husband, who works really hard to make me feel loved and cherished and valued. even on my most irritable days, I know that I am blessed beyond belief to be loved so well.
