READING Nothing at the moment. Lots of stuff for school and about some Major Programs. I need to find a good book soon. Its been way too long, since I've had my hands on a good read.
WRITING This post obviously. :) But In general I have been journaling a lot more lately. I used to write every day and then the life of being a Momma, wife and full time student kind of gets in the way. Journaling is a way to have me time, and also helps me take the incredibly jumbled, over-dramatic thoughts in my head and hash them out on paper. I always feel less stressed afterwards.
LISTENING to Needtobreathe Radio on Pandora.
THINKING about my life a lot. I am excited to see where my photography will take me in the upcoming months, and even if it doesn't I still love it. I'm also thinking about getting school finished, and seeing Josh move forward in his career. I am also thinking about Levi and realizing he will be 2 in a few weeks, my time really does fly.
SMELLING My hazelnut coffee and fresh air from the open windows. This is my favorite time of year, when Summer is leaving and Fall is approaching. What would make it even better right now is if someone had their fireplace burning. Best.Smell.Ever.
WISHING Josh could get home sooner today, but he won't be home until late tonight. Its amazing how a few days apart makes you really miss your Husband. Kind of forgot what that felt like for a minute. ;)
HOPING I can live my life without being so concerned about what other people think.
WEARING Comfy sweatpants and Josh's t-shirt. Its one of those comfy days where you wake up and wear PJ's all day.
LOVING The support I am receiving about my photography lately. I am by no means where I want to be, but It is amazing receiving feedback from people. I love that I love it, and that's all that matters. I love the challenge of learning more and taking better photos each time. I love that I can only improve rather than get worse. And I also love that my Husband tells me I should quit school and pursue it entirely, because it shows he really cares about what I want and is really encouraging. (But, I would never quit school-ya know me, always gotta have a back-up plan.)
WANTING To get my butt in shape. BEFORE winter gets here, and I will never have the motivation to do it. What happened to the days where I loved to run, loved to be in shape? I need to get that girl back.
NEEDING to let go of control and LIVE my life. Regarding careers, fears,etc. I know it will all work out, because it always does. I need to stop wasting time stressing when I could be using that time to listen to God's plan for me, and make memories with my family.
FEELING sad that my baby boy is in pain right now. He's getting those last teeth and is snotty, feverish, miserable, and has a really hard time napping or sleeping period. He seems fine and happy until its time to go night-night, which has never been an issue except for when those 15 month molars came in. Hoping he feels better soon..
CLICKING Lots of boards on Pinterest to get some more ideas for Levi's Birthday Party coming up!
I am looking forward to a busy week ahead. Not because its Josh's long week to work, or because I have classes-but because I will choose to live for me, and choose to be happy. I will make extra time with Levi, teaching him and working on that core haha. (He is still needing to strengthen it, you would think walking around with the Buddah Belly would do the trick ;)) I will choose to read passages in my Bible a few mornings this week. And I will get my butt running. I will stress less and pray more. I will eat better than worse. I will have a date night with my Husband. And I will keep practicing my camera.
XO Have a good week lovelies.
