{St Patrick's Day //2021}

 I almost missed posting about St Patrick's Day! And I couldn't let that happen. Not because we celebrated in some big kind of way, but because I have the cutest pictures to share. But first, we had to be a little bit festive, so green Lucky Charms for breakfast it was!


 I'm going to let you in on a little secret...if you want to win over my heart, just invite me to go chase the sunset with you! haha! But seriously. I could never grow tired of chasing the sunset. I mean, it's such an incredible gift that God shares with us every evening.  And if you really think about it, chasing the sunset is quite like our walk with the Lord and spending time with Him. You get away from the world and experience something much bigger. Something more beautiful. Something incredible and so indescribable. I'm sure the exact same could be said about the sunrise, but lets be honest, I'm not a 'rise before the sun' kind of girl. There's very few things I will wake that early for! Anyhow, I am so thankful for a husband that supports my crave for chasing the sunset and I am even more thankful for that time I get to spend with him. 

{Bluebonnets // 2021 // Vol. 1}

 Back on March 26th we made our first trip over to see the Bluebonnets (< click on that link to see previous Bluebonnet posts). Driving the back roads to see these beautiful Texas flowers is one of our favorite things to do on weeknights! It's so soothing to my soul to drive these back roads at sunset and then spend some time in these gorgeous wildflower fields. 

{Easter 2021 // Part 2}

 We spent Easter Sunday morning here at home. Mason opened his Easter basket and we hung out and made the foods we were taking to Nate's parent's house. It was nice to have a slow-going morning here at home. Mason loved all the things that I found for him at Canton! 

{Easter 2021 // Part 1}

 We celebrated Easter with my mom's side of the family on Saturday, April 3rd. We had our gathering at my mom & dad's house. So many of our family members were able to come and it made my heart so happy! We had such a great day together.

{Canton First Monday // April 2021}

 I took off the first Friday of the month so that I could join my Mother in Law, Sister in Law, and Brother in Law at Canton First Monday. We also invited my best friend, Keri. She's off on Fridays and was able to join us! I'm so glad she did. We had the best time.

{ECJ Meet // April 2021}

 Our local Jeep club has a meet on the first Thursday of every month. This month the meet was only a mile-ish from our house, so we were able to take both Jeeps. It's a rare treat when we get to take the CJ to an event! It's a trailer princess!! 

{A trip to the Dallas Arboretum // March 2021}

 Ever since we started working at home, my coworkers and I like to get together every couple of months. We usually meet for breakfast and catch up on accounts we're working on as well as our personal lives. It's such a sweet time to spend with them. One of my coworkers still isn't comfortable with eating at restaurants (Covid) so we found somewhere else to meet. We met super early at the Dallas Arboretum!

{We've reached a milestone over here}

 Mason is finally tall/big enough to fully operate the mower! He's been helping Nate mow our lawn for a few weeks now. We live on two acres and with only a normal riding lawnmower, it takes quite some time. Nate mows the front half and Mason takes on the back half!

{Lunch with NeNaw and Nell}

 A few weeks ago, we were able to pick up Nathan's Grandmother (NeNaw) and her really good friend Nell and take them to lunch. They were so precious and so excited to leave their assisted living facility for an afternoon outing! 

{First supper outside // Helloooooo Spring}

 I love this time of year where the weather is just perfect for eating outside on our porch. There is just something so relaxing about sitting under the twinkle lights and watching the sunset as we enjoy our supper. And, I especially love that we aren't having to bat off mosquitos. Spring is such a great time of year!! 

{Easter Chicks // March 2021}

 I'm sure y'all knew this post was coming! Having chicks around Easter time was too fun. I had to take some Easter pictures of them. So dang precious!!

{Aaron Watson // March 2021}

 Back in March, we were invited to an Aaron Watson concert with some Jeep friends. Not only did they have tickets, but they also had a VIP table at this concert. Nathan knows how much I love Aaron Watson, so with only a day's notice, he made it happen! We found a sitter for Mase and our dogs for Saturday afternoon/evening!

{Spring Flowers & Garden // March 2021}
