Hi there! Welcome to Currently, where we share with each other what we are Currently up to and let you share your post through the link-up below. We love this link-up, where we can make new friends and build community. Join us.
Thinking about // Marriage. And how it's so incredibly difficult. Especially when you're in the thick of the woods and you can't clearly see the end, you can't clearly see the path. It's hard. It's hard getting to know someone's idiosyncracies and understand their family history to figure out why they are the way they are. It's difficult. And to those who say it's not difficult, I often wonder how they got the luck of the draw. But I don't wonder too long, because I've got my own stuff to figure out. I've got my own positives to find and worries to set aside to look for the good in this incredibly difficult and growing vocation of marriage.
Because that's what I'm doing -- I'm being stretched and pulled and prodded and planted and uprooted and planted again. I'm growing.
Thankful for // Friends. My goodness, what would I do without my friends -- virtual and real. I am so grateful for the women in my life who shower me with love and prayers and grace. They are helping me navigate through these woods, helping me see that no matter how many times we feel stuck in here, blinded by what's around us, that there is a clearing up ahead.
I am so grateful for the women that I have as friends.
Loving // This new shirt I got at Gap. Grrrrl am I excited! I texted Mary right away to see if this "look" was good, because she's my fashionista lady, and she said I looked cute, so I went with it!
It's actually a white dress from Gap with a shirt over it. I figured it would be good for my collecting of my capsule wardrobe. Unfancy does all sort of fancy (get it?) things with her creativity of finding new ways to wear this and that. So I'm excited to have adopted this look from her. What do you think? Have you gotten started on your capsule yet?
This week, my gorgeous host is Courtney of One Lyric. She is an incredibly wifey and mom to three precious boys. I am in love with Courtney's honesty in life as well as her immense love for her family. Here are a few of my favorites of hers:
- The Burger King Mom
- I Can't Breathe
- Is that poop in the tub?!!! (finding rest in poopy circumstances ;) )
