I’m telling you, summer might be my new favorite!
It’s already been so fantastic every day.
Since this is my way of documenting my life and lessons, I wanted to post how great this morning was. One of my goals for the year was to look for God’s details in everyday life and He has def been detailing.
First off, I went on a short little run. I go on a run once a week. I actually don’t do it for health/fitness reasons, if I did then I’d go more often. I was going to tell the reason but now I’m too self-conscious :) hehe. NOT one of my goals.
On my run, my mom texted that she and my grandma were at the donut shop and you know those are some magic words. So Flint and I headed that way.
We all decided to walk a few stores down to the thrift shop where I found exactly what I was looking for.
I have been wanting red check (is it check or gingham?) fabric to make curtains. I don’t have a specific room for them yet, I’ve just had a hankering for more red in my life. Because I didn’t have a set plan for these curtains, I thought I’d check the thrift shop before going to the fabric store.
And whatchu know?!
It was literally the first thing I saw when I walked in, sitting pretty in their Memorial Day/Fourth of July display. I couldn’t believe it.
And not only is this red check fabric. They are already curtains!
Wow thanks, God.
As an added bonus they also had two chairs that fit my taste so perfectly I can’t handle it.
Our driveway looks disgusting. (Ever so sorry.)
Derek was home for lunch… see that hot leg in the background? Mm.
But those chairs!!! They’re in the weird half-sun half-shadowland so you can’t really see the color, but it’s a light sea blue. They’re calm and pretty.
I cannot wait to clean them up and, well, sit in them. There are two, so that’s one for you!
We moved into this house with not near as much furniture as we needed to fill each room. But I decided that I wanted to slowly add pieces that I only really love. Rather than go buy a bunch of furniture/decor to feel “moved in.”
And I’m so glad. Now, not only are we filling the rooms with things we truly love, but each piece has a story to it too. They’re all conversation pieces!
It’s so fun and meaningful. And it’s all so us; rather than something we picked to go in a room.
Last night, we had to say goodbye to Derek’s sister and her boys. Back to Japan.
I told him that having all his siblings live so far away is like dating… You feel like you’re always saying a hard goodbye.
Goodbye for another year. A YEAR. Ech.
I unknowingly took a wonderful series of pictures I now call “Flint’s Intense Cheeses”
You little cheesehead.
So glad God is weaving Himself into all the little details of our lives. And just as tickled that He gives us the eyes to see it.
Thank you for summer.
Thank you for Your details.
Thanks for all the teeny blessings all along the way that make up a great life.
