Thanks for stoping by to "listen" to me share bits & pieces of my life each Monday, as I link-up with A Mama Collective for her "currently" series.
overwhelmed with/blessed by // all the editing I have to do! which means I've been taking a LOT of photos, which is such a huge, huge, massive, gigantic blessing because I LOVE my job and am so grateful I get to do what I do. seriously, capturing the most precious moments & seasons & details of incredible people's lives is about as good as it gets. thank you, thank you, thank you for all my wonderful clients who hire me, fellow creatives who inspire me + friends who encourage me. I'm blessed, blessed, blessed.
working on // a few home projects, finally. 1 for M's gallery wall, which I'll be blogging about soon, 1 piece for our living room -- a sweet little side table that needed some lovin' + in general, updating the style/aesthetic of our home a bit to encourage a little more contentment with the fact that we'll be living here much longer than we anticipated.
trying to // be more eternally-minded, while living in the moment. while there is nothing wrong with focusing on home(/life) improvement of the earthly house(/life) we've been given to live in, it is not good to be so caught-up on fixing everything about our life here-and-now that we forget that everything here is temporary (yet has eternal signifgance) and the Lord has prepared a perfect, eternal home for us that will need no improvement, leave nothing to be desired and fulfill our every need. I am so, so focused on the struggles of my day-to-day, dreams for my future and complaints of my "currently", that I not only miss out on the tiny joys that come from staying home with my rapidly-growing-into-a-kid baby girl, but I forget that each and every moment I have the opportunity to make matter eternally. whether that's being a loving wife, an encouraging friend, an attentive mother or a passionate witness -- individual moments matter and can be so much bigger than we give them credit for.
loving // my sweet, silly, strong-headed little girl. she is growing up so fast that I am making note of several new milestones a day! yesterday she started crawling/climbing over and in-and-out of everything, often getting herself into an adorable little predicament that I had to save her from. she also held a (full-size, metal) spoon and scooped guacamole out of a bowl to feed herself. today, she cleaned up toys when I asked her to, by throwing them back in the bin & is clearly understanding more and more about the world around her and the way things work each and every day. I love how she "learns" new things in her sleep and wakes up the next morning showing them off to me. welp, there's a bit about me + my right-now, what are you up to currently? do you ever have to remind yourself to really live-in & appreciate your current moment, while remaining eternally-minded?
