May Flowers, Naps & Busyness

May 2, 2016

Can you believe it’s already May?! The fact that the previous statement is true is blowing my mind.  For our family, we are getting ready to enter one of our busiest summers on record.

June is kicked off by my husband’s birthday, followed by my son’s four days later. Then when you add in Father’s Day and our 8th wedding anniversary at the end of the month, that makes a great deal to do and celebrate. We’ll also be going to a few weddings over the coming months as well.

In July, my husband will be going on a missions trip to Honduras. I’m so excited for him to serve in this way. Our church started coordinating mission’s trips a few years ago and I’ve always wanted to go. When I was 15, I went on a mission trip to Mexico that changed my life. There’s just something about getting out of your comfort zone and sharing Jesus with people who have never heard that name – much less know the power of it – that changes you. Of course when you mix-in the potential Zika virus, being pregnant and having a two year old, it’s not really feasible for me to go and I’m just fine with that. This will be my husband’s first time out of the country and I couldn’t be prouder of him. Please keep him in your prayers in July.

Then we have a little break in our busy beginning in August followed by the birth of our second child in October. I couldn’t be more excited, overjoyed or hopeful about this season of our life. I’m almost half way through this pregnancy and we have the option to find our Baby #2’s gender in three weeks.

I’m doing my best to enjoy being pregnant this time around because after having our son I know first hand that all the rumors are true and kids do grow up way too fast.

As far as my blog goes, I still have lots on the horizon including introducing you to a very dear friend in my first Kitchen Table Talk installment. I could’ve had this done by now but I’ve been neglecting my blog for more important things like sleeping when my child sleeps. Naps have never been sweeter or more necessary to my sanity.

Thanks for continuing to read my blog and support me in my writing endeavors.

Love you all!
