one | Yesterday was my beautiful sister's birthday. You guys would love her if you met her. She's so funny, says what's on her mind, and is just a wonderful woman inside and out. Her husband just recently got back from over a year-long overseas contract and it was so nice to see them last weekend, finally together again. They've been through two military deployments together and then this past year apart even after he got out of the marines. I am so happy that he's back and I'm excited to see where life takes them!
two | Have you been enjoying the Olympics as much as we have? It's on almost every night and I think I've narrowed my favorite sports to watch down to ice skating (both individuals and couples) and skiing. Speaking of skiing, did anyone see that ridiculous interview with Bode Miller last week where the crazy reporter made him cry? She wouldn't stop asking him personal and emotional questions about his brother and even after he needed to end the interview, the camera was right in his face. I wanted to scream, "Leave the man alone"! It was supposed to be a sports interview, not a therapy session. NBC has kind of had annoying coverage of the Olympics- random, back and forth shots and too much screen time for silly anchors.
three | I've been working with an herbalist-in-training who is studying under the amazing Aviva Romm. She's been helping me find solutions for depression, anxiety, hormone regulation, and lifestyle changes and it's been a wonderful experience. I've been taking three to four different herbs for the past month and a half and I finally feel normal for the first time in a long time. I am so encouraged by the success of these herbs and am so thankful for the opportunity to benefit from her knowledge.
four | I haven't written about M's job in awhile, mostly because I don't really have anything new to report. It's been a ridiculous process, we thought we were moving, found out we weren't, and are now facing some possible uncertainties. The changes first began being talked about in August of 2013, so for the past six months our life has been in limbo. Supposedly, we find out solid information in about two or three weeks. We have no clue what's going to happen- we could stay put, we could be looking for another job, we could be moving. I can't begin to tell you the amount of peace I have, no matter what happens. It's nothing I mustered up with positive thinking- I know this is from the Lord. I truly know that whatever happens, He is still God and we will be fine.
five | Last weekend we met my parents, my sister and brother-in-law, and my aunt and uncle for a cabin getaway in the mountains. I really enjoyed the late evening chats, exploring town, and the cozy fire. We found a Mellow Mushroom and we had the most heavenly gluten-free pizza. We ordered a White Pizza & a Regular Pepperoni and both were so good! I could probably eat that pizza every night for dinner.
There's my random round up! What have you been up to lately?
