This is me as of now.

When I first started this blog I was so excited to write every single post. I was motivated and determined to chronicle my (and Little’s) life in this new way. I thought about my blog while I did the dishes or read a magazine and considered what I would share next.

And I still want to do that. I was going through some old stuff that I wrote in college the other day and really enjoyed reading about my life at that point. Sure, that wasn’t too long ago. And yes, I have pictures to remind me of my days past. But there is something about reading my own words that is different from anything else. Please don’t misunderstand me to say that I think there is something especially unique or inspiring about the way I write! I’m simply stating that reading about my life is pretty cool. I like it; and therefore, I want to keep sharing what’s going on in our little family so I can read about it later. Ha!

I’ve mentioned it before, but the summertime and my blog do not always agree with each other. There is just so much going on that it’s hard for me to take the time to slow down and type it out. But like I said, these are some awesome times in my life that I want to remember (in detail) in the future! So here is what’s going on with me and my family right now.

Mr. T graduated from a 22 week police training academy just over two weeks ago.

 

He started the process to join the police force over a year ago just after getting his college degree. Finally in March, the actual training program began. It was a hard road (much harder than I will ever realize, I’m sure), but he stuck with it.

We are all so proud of him! He’s now in the field but will ride with a training officer for the next six months. Please keep him and all of our police officers in your daily prayers!

The day that Mr. T graduated just happened to be my birthday! I was more than happy to share my day with him, but he did something special for me the day before. About a week before my birthday, we started watching the Harry Potter movies. Now if you know me at all, you know that since the HP books and movies have been around, I have had zero interest in them. But my husband is a persistent guy and after about seven years of poking I finally succumbed to the pressure and dove in with both feet. And I’m so glad that I did. I’m hooked. A little late to the game, I know, but about three days after watching the first part of the last movie, Mr. took me to watch the final part in theaters at our local drive-in. Pretty awesome, if I do say so myself (and I know I don’t!).

Little Miss enjoyed her first VBS experience at our church a few weeks ago.

We did a one day event, and while Little Miss was the youngest one there and spent much of the time goofing around with her daddy, I think she had a great time. The theme was “Saddle Up with God,” and the kids looked so precious in their boots and cowboy gear.

 

And finally, last weekend I sang and danced the night away at the Keith Urban concert.

My good friend Emily has her birthday just a week after mine, and after thoroughly enjoying myself at the CMA fest with her, we bought tickets to Keith’s show to celebrate. A long-lost high school friend who we haven’t seen in about six years made a weekend trip from PA, and she and my sister joined us for the concert. It was amazing. My sister and I were on the floor with seats much better than I had anticipated. To make it even better, Keith came into the audience for several songs and was about five rows from us at that point!

 

I’m an even bigger fan of Keith (and Jake Owen) than before!
