bridesmaid againWhew! That was a busy week and one of my best guy friends got married. Though I thought my bridesmaid days were over with this wedding, I was obviously wrong. It was such a beautiful celebration of love and grace, and a wonderful display and reminder of Christ and the church.

For me personally, it was also a reminder of trusting in God and finding joy in serving his people. It was so busy trying to juggle the girls, making sure we stayed on top of homeschooling, doing wedding prep (besides being a bridesmaid), and just managing all these other little things we have going on in our home. It was definitely a crazy week, but I am so thankful and blessed.

This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness (I think this will be added in because I need to cultivate a stronger heart of thankfulness)…

In times of stress… pray. I fail at that often.

Glow took four steps! She did a few weeks ago and she took bigger ones this time around.

Soul’s a funny napper (see here). It gets funnier every time.

This cake topper is so cute! I can’t wait to try it out for a birthday!

I love Salvage Life’sย new webshop!

Thankful for the Autumn weather we had this week. We even had rain! This coming week is supposed to be back in the 90’s, but by next weekend dip down into the 70’s again. I can’t wait!

I am so thankful for the BFF and her hubs for taking the big girls on an adventure on Saturday (and a sleepover) and letting Ben and me catch up on some things around the house.

Got to see our good friends from AZ and I am so grateful for them taking care of the 4 girls while I was doing wedding stuff and Ben was at work. It’s not easy watching 4 little girls. They were even brave enough to take them all to a restaurant!

Thankful for spending Sunday afternoon with church family hanging out at Umami Burger. It’s such a blessing to share life with these people and I don’t think Ben and I do it enough, but when we do get the chance, we always leave more refreshed and encouraged. God is good.

It was a crazy week, but there was much goodness amidst the busyness. How was your week? Anything you are particularly thankful for?

    My week was pretty busy as well, not as much as yours though, (hah-hah) but amidst all that I had a lot of fun during the weekend. Last week in photography class I learned how to use presets in Lightroom, and the pictures my mentor helped me to edit turned out really well. This week in church our lesson was “take heed lest ye fall” and one that I am truly tahnkful for, because it helped me realize that I really haven’t given God the time he deserves. So, it’s all a work in progress. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t have many friends and will most likely never get the chance to be a bridesmaid. You’re lucky to be so close to so many people that they think of you highly enough to be included in their special day.

    I’m thankful for the quiet moments in the day when I can browse my favorite blogs, the fabulous teachers that love, understand, and encourage my kiddos, and the fall colors, smells, and warm hot cider! You look gorgeous in that photo, by the way…

    You were fantastic in throwing that cute little wedding together—I told you you were the wedding planner! haha!

    Soul’s cute as a dragon! I told PJ the story of her sleeping in the hallway and surrounding herself with books, haha.
