Major life events change your relationships. It doesn’t have to be a disastrous thing, it can be a beautiful point of growth. Almost certainly painful, but if both parties are willing they’ll come out stronger. That being said, this major life event, having Victor, has grown Adam and I significantly. The growth seems to have just caused some of the best in us to blossom, and I’m beyond grateful.
[A week or two before Victor arrived, I told Adam he needed to get me the prettiest flowers of anyone that would get me flowers, cause you know, I was having his baby and all. I jokingly told him he should have a flower crown made for me, and you know what, he did. This man has honored me and shown me so much love and respect through this season change… I’m almost without words. Thank you for making me feel like your beautiful queen, Adam.]
Sometimes while you’re practicing loving your season in life, people might make you feel behind. You decide how you’re going to feel! I’ve heard it said this way, “attitude is the difference between ordeal and adventure”. I’ve made so much progress in this area since I started my DD journey, so I know I’m well on my way… I’m just on adventure right now!

Laundry Room Project One: Hang Curtain in Doorway in Lieu of a Door
[This wasn’t an expensive or time consuming project, but it’s made a huge impact on the space. Sorry for the awkward picture, but taking photos in this area is near impossible.]
Two more boxes have been unpacked. This was no small task as I had been looking for a particular box for three days. At least Mr. Potato Head has a home now.
Sometimes we have to fit part of a task into a different time slot than normal. Other times we just decide we want to make the change. Today I began my shopping list and meal plan while on my lunch break. Taking a little bit of time early in the day made my task much easier later this evening.
We took a baby step towards a goal today by test driving some cars! Besides the horrible stench of new cars, it felt great to cross two cars off our list of maybes. I’m a very petite lady who doesn’t want to sit in a booster seat to drive, which will be a challenge. Good news is that we had fun!
[Funny story: Adam went to work today and looked nice when we showed up to the car lot. I, on the other hand, had just gone swimming and was dressed accordingly. This means I replaced makeup for sunscreen, had a bandana in my hair, and wore flip flops. I was the epiphany of style and grace while looking at new cars with Adam… Not.]
There are times when we have a routine that works for us, but it has to change. In times like that we need to be flexible, and if need be, understanding. There are also times when we change a routine because we can, and that’s usually stupid…well, it can be. In today’s case where I changed the time that I listen to my bible, that was not smart. I am having a much more difficult time remembering if I even did or not. Maybe the old saying ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ has some validity.
I actually can’t believe that I made it… without all the love, support, and interest you all took in this venture I’m sure I would not have been successful. I walk into the new year full of gratitude. I appreciate all the likes and comments my disciplines have gotten, it’s a great motivation! Here’s to a new year of disciplining!!!
[Check out the colors happening here!]
To continue mastering the analog clock, Adam let me change the time of his watch. Good news is I didn’t even need help! While we were out shopping tonight he had me tell the time on some watches in the store.
Right around the time I think everything in life is horrible, God brings people around to be a blessing. I’m grateful for the wake up call…prayerfully I won’t hit the snooze button.
(This is from a few days right before I walked home from work. This change of season has been pretty lovely.)
