It was our first day waking up in our own beds since we left for vacation.
We had a wonderful vacation, but I was ready to come home.
The last weekend of our trip I was secretly sulking inside while thinking of
how much I was missing my sweet girlfriends that were all at the blog
meet-up. 12 lovely ladies that were able to leave their families and jobs to spend a
weekend together in a beautiful vacation house on the beach.
I knew they were staying up late, roasting smores in their pajamas and
bearing their hearts. I was so sad to have missed out.
Luckily Courtney had five of us over last night for a delicious dinner.
MMMmmm... Can't stop thinking about those enchiladas!!
I was able to spend a little time with Fairlight and KT, who are both lovelier than I could explain. I was so excited to catch up with Courtney,
Andrea and Chelle, my it felt good to be home.
I have been so blessed with such wonderful friends, I can't believe how much
I adore my life. I love living in Spokane, I just couldn't be happier.
This morning I woke up early and had my worship, which was really special. I'm working through a book called The Power of a Praying Wife, and have commited (somewhat begrudgingly) to wake up two hours earlier to pray in the morning for the next thirty days. I have never had a consistent prayer life, only talking to God thoughout my day casually. I am really making an effort to let God do his will in our marriage and in my life. It's a great book. I absolutely reccomend it.
Speaking of good books, I also recommend the Apothacary's Wife, a novel by Julie Klassen. A really fun Jane Austen-style quick read. I ate up her books while I was in Hawaii, and am currently reading the Silent Governess. So good!
I have reserved tonight for catching up on Laundry, Lost episodes, and Sewing. Just what I've been craving. Well, except for the laundry...
