Everyday Life: 03.31.12 – 04.05.12

How can it possibly be the fourth month already?! How did that happen? Time certainly has flown by for me. I feel so blessed with the life I have. I’m especially thinking about it this weekend in light of today being Good Friday and Sunday being Easter. To know what Jesus did for us just blows me away. How can I not be thankful?!

I’m glad this past week has somewhat been captured by Instagram. When I don’t have time to even think about taking photos, Photo A Day helps me :) And now, we’ve moved into April with a whole new set of words. Here we go :)

Day 31. Where you relax. The living room couch is where I unwind and relax now. Come summer (which will be soon with the weather we are having!), Jason and I move to the couch in the family room which is in the basement where it’s cooler and we relax down there. For the same reason we spend our time in the living room in the winter… it’s warmer. This photo show my side of the couch. Jason is usually perched on the other side with the cat somewhere snuggled in between :) What can I say? We are creatures of habit!

1. Reflection. I walked into the church bathroom on Sunday and snapped a photo for the word of the day. I happened to be wearing my new sweater that I got on major clearance at Banana Republic for $4! I love good deals :)

2. Color. I love this color combination. It’s obvious too because I’m using it all over my house right now. This is a photo of one of my living room pillows.

3. Mail. It was a boring mail day. All junk mail. Do you know that I love to get the mail? It’s like opening a present. I just can’t wait to see what’s inside and I’m always hoping for a magazine. Or a check for $1,000,000. I would take either :)

4. Someone who makes you happy. Yes he does. He really does. He’s my best friend and I love him so much. As we always say to each other, I couldn’t do life without him.

The flowers are in full bloom at our house right now. We have moved from flowering trees to flowering bushes. They are gorgeous. I might have to go pick some soon.

More flowers. Roses specifically. Some of the pinks are practically neon. I love them!!

5. Tiny. For some reason I had a hard time with this one. I couldn’t think of anything tiny. And then I remembered this little fawn that I have and decided he would do.

A friend asked me to make a card for her husband for their anniversary. This is what I came up with. He plays the guitar so I used that as my inspiration. I got the saying from this poster I saw and have always loved. I’ve always wanted to buy the post but they don’t carry one in a color that I want. Maybe I will have to plan a room around one of the colors they offer just so I can buy the poster :)

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend! We are going to be celebrating Resurrection Day with some good friends and the food theme is Mexican. I can hardly wait!

He is risen indeed!!
