Thinking about: How amazing our new site is!!!  The amazing Whittney Vass designed it, and Jenna and I are thrilled with it!!!  We've been hinting at some changes and it's fun to finally reveal this amazing new look for us here at A Mama Collective.

Also been thinking about...

How blessed we have been to have such an amazing community of friends to raise our children along side.  Last night, Jenna and her awesome husband hosted 25 adults and 20 kids at their casa for a family dinner.  We began with some prayer, and the kids jumped and sang joyfully at the end.  We all broke bread and shared stories.  Mostly sharing love and the joy of community.

It's funny, the whole community thing.  It's something I would have never thought I wanted, or needed for that matter.  But now, I simply don't know what I would do without it.  These people, who extend into much larger number than those who could make it to Jenna's are people of not only great faith, but fervent love.  I don't know how else to describe it, besides life-changing and life-giving.  {Thank you Jesus!}

Reading: Does reading about DSLR camera's count?  haha Well that's the closest I have gotten to reading in the past couple days.  If you saw my Five on Friday post you will remember that I am in the market for a new DSLR camera.  I would love any recommendations or tips you amazing mamas may have!

Listening to: All Sons and Daughter's Live record has been such a great way to draw into worship while I work around the house.  They write such simple, but beautiful songs, making it so easy to sing along.  My most favorite part of blasting worship music around the house is hearing my eldest singing along words like "I will love, love, love with this heart you gave, because you've been good always!" {cue mommy heart melt}

Watching: My husband and I started watching the newest episode of Downton Abby last night, but we both feel asleep. Whoops.  I'm pretty bummed about the way things ended last session, but still watching in hopes that they redeem themselves.  Am I the only crazy one???

Thankful for: Sisters.  My two girls are developing the sweetest of love languages, mostly just squeals and baby talk, but the look in my baby's eyes when she sees her big sister is beyond words.
