recently i'm... (17)

Loving: Ephesians 2:1-5.
"As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and followings its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath.
But !
because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved."

Enjoying: Visiting the CHV pool across the street on these crazy hot days!

Excited about: DC this weekend! LASP reunion with Doug's friends and DC Bannister Babes reunion. (The only downside is that I had to turn down an opportunity to shoot my first wedding...)

Listening to: Um, I randomly started listening to my old Aqualung albums to fall asleep the first night we were in New Orleans... and have been listening to them every day since. Magical.

Reading: Finished The House on Mango Street yesterday - wonderful. Also read The Help before New Orleans and adored it. Pumped for the movie!

Cooking: Yeah, haven't done this so much since New Orleans. Doug & I have both had meetings or other stuff in the evenings where we've been fed, which is pretty nice.

Annoyed with: Music that plays automatically on people's blogs. Usually, I'm listening to music while perusing the internet, and your playlists are interrupting my sweet jams!

Wanting to make: bright & bold pillow cases for our couch pillows. They're so boring.

Also wanting to: chop all my hair off...

Wishing: I could go to Africa with the team that leaves next week...

Helping with: planning our church's walkathon this fall! So excited about this. All the money raised goes to World Orphans.

Laughing at: the usual.

  5. dad... is that you? because you don't have to blow dry your hair before work every morning...

  6. Lindsay is reading The Help too -- let's all go see it when it comes out! Also, I just found out yesterday that the first Hunger Games movie comes out in March!
