Starting a New Hobby

Soo... in the midst of all the craziness and challenges God has put before our family in the last few months, I have decided to take up a new hobby. My husband seems to have had all the expensive hobbies to date, so I thought I would join him. I have recently purchased my first Digital SLR Camera and have enjoyed learning all about it... I am wanting to make it a worthy purchase, not just something I buy, use for a few months and forget about, so I am taking a shot at a giveaway to go to the Love Affair Workshop here in Dallas in September. This is something that I absolutely could not afford, so why not try to go for free! Here's the link to this oh-so-fabulous workshop I would die to go to!
Check out! They are giving away prizes and a seat to their workshop on the blog this week! Go enter to win!

Trying to Welcome the Wait

This is my fabulous husband, whom I love dearly. He is soo patient with me and he loves me despite how flawed I am. And trust me, I am flawed. This past 6 months has been kinda rough on me emotionally. I don't know what it is. I mean, I am so blessed and have so much to be thankful for. We have traveled the world in our 4 short years of marriage, I have a great job that I am really enjoying this year, and truly have some of the best friends anyone could ask for. I guess I have just been so melancholy over what God has been working on in me. It really dates back to July-ish. Caleb and I had decided about a year before that we would begin to venture down the road towards having a baby in August.. However, with Caleb beginning to pursue his MBA, we decided that it would be best if we wait until closer to his graduation. Immediately I was sad, and really began to grieve the loss of the life I was hoping we would have in the next year. There were so many things that I pictured in my mind being "the last before a baby" and all of a sudden those pictures changed. No longer would our Italy trip be "the last hurrah", nor would my school year be the last sans a baby. That lasted until sometime in August, when I finally got on my face before the Lord and just wept. I was beyond what I could handle on my own, which I know is exactly where He wanted me. I was trying to grieve alone, trying to be ok with something I really wasn't and trying to put on a happy face, pretending like I had it all together when I really couldn't be any further from that. I have always thought it to be so cliche, but in that moment when I was literally laying flat on the ground, face down the burden of my grief just dissipated.

Since that day, I have been in a season of restoration. He's restoring me to a right relationship with Him, where I trust His providence, love my husband more deeply, and really just savor this time to grow together before our lives are forever changed.

So... with that, I need to go plan my next vacation I didn't think I'd have!! Ski slopes, here we come!
