Route 66

My father in law has a cool car.  We used it as our getaway car from the wedding when we got married and I am seriously in love with it.  It is a 1958 Nash Metropolitan and quite possibly the cutest car ever ;)

Today my FIL made a surprise trip to Springfield and wanted to photograph the Nash in front of historic Route 66 landmarks throughout town.  He is planning to start a blog combining his love for the Nash with his interest in Route 66.

It was fun taking an afternoon to visit sites around Springfield with him :)  We definitely got a lot of looks!

Today was a beautiful, snowy day!  There are quite a few pictures for today because I just loved it and had lots of moments I wanted to remember.

My new favorite picture of this crazy kid :)

Winter wonderland in the back alley.

Sweet potato chips!  

Catch in the freezing cold because this cutie had cabin fever.

Happy Day 31 of 365 :)

I'm not feeling clever

Sometimes coming up with a blogpost title is hard.  I'm not always in the clever mood.

 25/365 The finished purple shelf in the living room!  I love it :)

26/365 The food pantry and the city wide garage sale

A case of the winter blues

I have a case of the winter blues.  It takes a lot more effort to bring my camera out and catch life when I am not feeling amazing.  Nonetheless here are snapshots from the past few days.

18/365 My sweet baby lounging during family movie time :)

20/365 My favorite ladies and I at the murder mystery party with church.  The theme was Mad Men and it was so fun!

21/365 The new shelves are up in my office and they give me so much space on my desktop!  I also love having a bunch of books lined up filled with topics I love :)  

22/365 Laura and I took a lunch time trip to a local antique mall and I found this tray for $9!  I am going to use it as a magnet message board in my office.

23/365 A few of my great grandmother's handkerchiefs.  I plan to frame a few in our kitchen and bathroom and I cannot wait to have them on display.

Pray for the blues to go away.  I love every one of you!

This was my morning today.

I like mornings.  I love having time to myself at home to sit, enjoy my coffee, and look around at all I have to be thankful for.  It is easy to get caught up in the dreaming of "someday" and forget that I need to be content with the life that I have.  My life is beautiful and it is the life God has blessed me with right now.

Happy day 16 of 365 :)

The Girls Are Back In Town

Classes started back up today!  I only have one seated course this semester so it did not feel very different to me, but it did mean that both of my office friends were back :)  Last week was really quiet so it was nice to have company.

I'm nervous about this semester but excited at the same time.  I am taking more classes about family development, but the classes are going to push me.  It is good but scary.  Pray for me please :)
