snuggles, old friend and laughter {day 342}


I woke up to this pup laying his head on my shoulder. He is my second favorite snuggler to wake up to. 🙂
I also got to see an old friend tonight and spent a few hours reminiscing, chatting and laughing a lot.
I’m grateful for good beginnings and ends to this day.

laughter {day 210}

today was not my favorite. pretty much from first thing this morning, nothing was going quite how I wanted/needed it to. so tonight for small group I thought we might just need some time together. so we did this:




the game of life is a legit way to spend an evening. grateful for these girls, for their kind hearts, and for laughter and silliness.
