pinkThis week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

I got rid of my blonde ombre, and since my sister wanted to ease me back into the dark-haired club, she did an ashy-brown. Soul said, “Mommy, you don’t look like you anymore. I like the yellow hair.”

Strawberry Caprese with Pistachio Pesto looks like the perfect thing to snack on once that summer heat sets in.

I think this space is gorgeous!

I love the embroidery on this dress.

This 1930’s toddler dress is absolutely sweet.

We have some summer plans, but nothing major going on unlike last summer when we went to Singapore and Williamsburg. We have lots of garden things we are working on, so that’s where we are putting our pennies towards right now.

Thankful for how God uses my daughters to teach me grace and the gospel. Grace and gospel is the most important thing I can ever teach them, but it seems that the teaching and learning is a two way street between children and parents.

I have lots of things on my current prayer list, and there are some things God has said no to, but there are other things that are being answered. It’s always in His time, isn’t it?!

      hahaha I still love that ombre though. I went darker, but not completely dark yet. Just no more blonde and more ashy brown. I’m working my way back to dark!
