I took a month off from my usual “Everyday Moments” post, but it’s back this month! These can be cumbersome to keep up so sometimes, you just need a break. That said, I love recapping my months like this, finding the good in every day. Even the crappy ones.
1 – A very productive day at work, Jeremy winning The Biggest Loser
2 – A pedicure with my mom
3 – Buying a new piece of luggage for my cruise (Jessica Simpson; $80, marked down from $400!), baking snickerdoodle cookies
4 – My nephew greeting me with a big hug and then running from the playground to give me another hug when I was leaving. (He is very stingy with his hugs so it made my day!)
5 – My brother’s wedding day!
6 – Sleeping in, buying new make-up products from Bare Minerals, and picking up my nephew! (We watched him for a few days while his parents were on their mini-honeymoon. So fun!)
7 – A running hug and big smile from my nephew after a stressful day at work.
8 – Making a long “to do before vacation” list for work and knocking out more than a few tasks.
9 – Cutting my hair back into a bob!
10 – An early Mother’s Day dinner with my mom, brother, and nephew.
11 – Last day of work before vacation!
12 – Making it to Ft. Lauderdale okay, a low-key night before our cruise began
13 – Embarking on our cruise!
14 – A fun-filled day in Key West, biking around the island and walking around all the touristy shops.
15 – Sleeping in until noon, spending the majority of the day relaxing and reading and eating.
16 – Being back in Grand Cayman. Kissing and holding sting rays. Kissing, dancing with, and hugging a dolphin. The feeling of island life.
17 – Being in JAMAICA! The amazing views presented in the rain forest. Zip-lining and the tour guides making things easy and fun.
18 – Enjoying our last day on the cruise by sleeping in, eating a lot, and taking lots of pictures to remember people by.
19 – Getting on the road early (7AM) and seeing DUTCH after a whole week. My brother and nephew coming over for a few hours that night.
20 – A lazy day at home, catching up on shows we missed while we were gone.
21 – My nephew’s school picture. It’s the cutest ever!
22 – The essays in the Stuff Christians Like book. If you’ve grown up in church, this book is SPOT ON for everything that happens. I’m already in love with Jon Acuff’s blog, now I’m in love with the book.
23 – Getting an “excellent” from my boss for my work on a tough project. (I was nervous!)
24 – The premiere for So You Think You Can Dance!
25 – Outback for dinner. Yum, yum!
26 – Long walk with a friend, catching up on life. It’s funny how we can let life get in the way of cultivating those necessary relationships.
27 – Finishing the #twookclub book, even if it made me cry and broke my heart.
28 – Sleeping in until 11, a day off from work, and a day spent doing nothing of importance. Perfection.
29 – A dreary, rainy day. I love rainy days.
30 – My first hard workout in a while. So needed & necessary.
31 – A long, soul-cleansing talk with God about Big Life Issues.
