sunday afternoon.


It's so cold here. I've been surviving with wool socks, hot green tea, & lots of blankets. In the spirit of hopefulness for warmer temperatures & spring, I thought I would post these pictures from my mom's birthday bouquet.

In other news, I am so thankful to be back to blogging & writing. Spring Break came & left so quickly. I had a long list of things to do, but only accomplished a little less than half of my lengthy "to-do"s. I did finish cleaning out my closet & reorganizing. Luke made a poster for our Art in the Yard Sale. It is so great! In the next month, I hope to make some earrings, print some photos, & possibly make a stamp & create a stationery set. We'll see.

so. recap of my Spring Break...
-camping with Luke's family. I found a beautiful piece of drift wood on the bank.
-quality time with my family in Liberty. We visited an adorable cupcake shop & a small garden shop where I found lavender seeds. They had so many types of bulk herbs & spices. Sadly, I forgot my camera.
-We planted our starts! The sunflowers are already sprouting. I will have so many fresh flowers on the kitchen table. I'm so excited!
-We went to a garage sale & found a cardboard box of old mason jars of various sizes & colors. I cannot wait to fill them up with found objects & wild flowers.
-Luke & I made dinner together almost every night. It was so much fun to set the table, pray together, & eat together.
-We also registered at Target for our wedding. We chose the most beautiful green & cream & blue textiles for linens. I can almost picture our home together :)
-Sunday service was what I needed most of all. The message was about anxiety & our struggle for joy in life. {This} is something I know will help me many times.

Well, I hope you all have a lovely Sunday. I must finish cleaning up my bedroom & prepare for the week ahead. 

love,
Natalie

I didn't get much done this spring break, either.

Oh yay...Target! I must get on-line and see what you registered for and figure out what to purchase.

Great scripture!!!

Having everything listed out like that makes it seem like we actually did quite a bit. We were quite ambitious with our "To Do" lists, after all.

I have been having a wonderful afternoon. I hope you are too. I look forward to seeing you again.

love,
Luke
