Oh for goodness sakes, this month has been intense! Obviously there is a lot going on in the world. There is also a lot going on in our personal life that is really hard right now too, not necessarily bad (at the moment), but we have definitely been praying A LOT the past couple weeks about something and waiting for answers. Vague. I know. I’m sorry. I will eventually be able to share in detail about exactly what is going on later, but for now, vague I will be.
I knew when I chose my “word of the year” to be “embrace” that it might be a challenge. I also went as far to say “embrace with joy”. Well, I can’t say I’m embracing more than I am bracing myself from unknown of things looming ahead.
I’ve been feeling a bit like this lately…
I know God has a plan and we just need to be patient. But waiting is so, so, so hard sometimes. I’m thankful we’re in good hands and that God can absolutely be trusted. I promise, I will spill the beans on everything going on eventually.
Anyway….here’s what we’ve been up to.
“The Great British Bake Off” on Netflix!
We have been hooked on this! I haven’t been feeling too great lately and find myself on the couch more than I would like. But, I have my husband hooked now, so I have good company!
The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles
I don’t typically buy books unless I know I’m going to love it, but I was in a book buying mood and it was my birthday, so I went ahead and splurged after hearing good things about this book. I’m only a few chapters in, but so far it’s good.
I haven’t made anything post worthy that I haven’t shared before, so unfortunately, I don’t have anything exciting to share in this department. I did buy some peaches to make peach cobbler, but I haven’t been feeling well enough to make it. I’m hoping the peaches don’t go bad before I get a chance!
I’ve also been playing with the idea of maybe once a month sharing a weekly meal plan and what we made for dinner during the week (I feel like I’ve mentioned this before?). I’ve been having a hard time posting with everything going on, but it’s definitely something I would like to do!
We found a new favorite bakery! Mi Flavour
I was introduced to this French bakery by my sister (who is from out of town oddly enough), and I loved it! Mikey and I have gone back a couple times so we can have a mini date here and there. It’s very modern and unique. We definitely recommend!
So there we have it! I plan to do a Summer Bucket List recap soon! I will admit, I’m not sure we accomplished even half of what was on our list, but we did manage to check a couple things off!
I hope you all had a wonderful Summer and are staying well! Here’s to a happy Fall!
Much love to you all,
