snow day birthday

blogging? what? I know, I'm just as shocked. I have kind of laid low in the blog world as of late and I can't say I'm too sorry about it. I have about 10 different drafts saved of posts I've written this past month, but none of them felt worthy of posting..which is probably why I needed the break. since when do I blog for other people? sometimes this world just becomes too consumed with selfishness, greed, and jealousy. and sometimes you just need a break, ya feel? good.


now that we've got that out of the way let's move on to better things...like snow day birthdays with husbands who bring you breakfast in bed : ) that definitely happened. I've never been a big fan of snow, or cold weather in general for that matter, but a day (or two) off of work does the soul good--especially when one of those days is on your birthday. my first married birthday. my first time waking up with a husband celebrating me! it was too good. adam spoiled me from the second I woke up.


it was nice. but one of the highlights of my day was when I slipped out for a few minutes and ran to the lifeway store and picked up kelly minter's no other gods study. it was a peaceful drive as not many people were out and most stores were closed. when I got home I cuddled up on the couch and dug into my book. the college small group I lead is starting this study together and I could not be more excited. I've only done the first week (I'm a binge bible studier ha!) and I already love it!

even though I had a really great birthday I felt bad all day long. my heart has hurt for those who are still stuck on interstates with no food, the students, teachers, & principals who are still stuck in schools, and those who can't get in touch with their loved ones who are still out on the roads. I'm thankful I made it home safely from work on tuesday but I just wish the rest of atlanta could get home too. keep all of these people in your prayers..

  1. First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :) Second, I just love y'alls house. It's so cute. And third, I am totally with you on taking a break. From any and everything. Resting is not as glorified as being busy, but I think it's so much better.

    Stay warm!

  6. Agree agree AGREE on your intro. I haven't blogged in over like 2 weeks and I honestly don't miss it at this point. I've been focusing on the wrong things and it's nice to take a break and not compare yourself to anyone! You aren't alone friend...not at all! I'm glad you enjoyed your birthday! :)
