{Currently // May}

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. We sure did. But, now it's all about catching up for me today. We got in around 4:30 pm yesterday and didn't unpack anything but our phone chargers. We weren't ready to let go of the holiday weekend just yet! So we grilled some burgers, watched the Ranger game and then had popsicles on the porch. We soaked up every last second of it. Now I have over 300 photos to sort through as well as 20 something videos on the GoPro!

Anyhow, today is all about what is currently going on in our little world.

Loving //
Life, my sweet family, our church & church family, photos, making sweet memories on our trips.

Wild and Free: A hope-filled anthem for the woman who feels she is both too much and never enough. By Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan

The Anthem of Wild and Free

The world may tell us we're too much and never enough.
But we can walk wildly in who God created us to be
and rest freely in the work Jesus did for us. 
We do not have to be confined or conformed by cultural expectations.
We are unchained from our past and unafraid of our future. 
We choose compassion over comparison.
We love without condition, without reserve.
Our eyes are on God; we hold nothing back;
we run fast and strong; we do not hide our light.
We aren't wild and free for our sake alone;
rather we sing life, hope and truth over the world 
with abandon - just as our God sings over us.
We are wild and free.
And we are poised to do mighty things, in Christ alone.

Listening to //
The Chris Tomlin with Matt Redman station on Pandora, 94.9 KLTY, or 'Ever Be' by Bethel.

Eating //
Fairly healthy {even while camping this weekend...wahoo}. I've cut out carbs and trying to eat less and better in general.

Drinking //
All the water. {with strawberry or cherry packets} I rarely have diet soda anymore and do not feel dependent on it anymore. I actually crave and prefer water now. This is big for me!

Watching //
Trying to catch-up on shows, but I am so behind. The last thing I watched was about 30 minutes of the first episode of the bachelorette.

Missing //
Our church and church family. We didn't go this weekend because we were 4+ hours away camping. I saw photos and videos on FB and was so sad that we missed such an amazing Sunday with our church. They sang all of my favorite songs, had baptisms at church and then again at a creek not too far from our church. Looked like an amazing day!

Also missing our sweet Diesel boy! We kenneled him this trip and I miss him something fierce. Nate will pick him up today after work.

Feeling //
All the feels! Mason is just about done with Kindergarten and it's so bittersweet. I can't believe how fast this year flew by! He has had an amazing Kinder year and I am so, so grateful for his amazing teacher and school. But, I am also excited to have him home with me this summer. And to have that one on one time again.

Looking forward to //
Oh so much! Summer! Weekend camping trips. Swim lessons. Summer vacation. Having Mason home with me.

Needing //
To catch-up. On emails, blogs, photos, videos, laundry, housework, Instagram, etc. This list never ends.

Enjoying //
My camera and taking {and learning} photos on manual mode. I am obsessed, really. I take my camera everywhere with me now.

Marveling at //
God's amazing grace and unending love. I am so undeserving, but oh so grateful.

Thinking about //
Things I can do with Mason this summer. I hope to find a couple of little camps that he can do.

What's going on in your world currently?


  1. I wish we could practice in manual together! I signed up for this free class that Sarah from Seeing All Sides mentioned. It starts tomorrow! I can't wait!

    I can't wait to see your pictures from this weekend!

  2. Aww, this post has me excited for summer. I've just begun sorting through all the photos and videos on my phone. Like 3,000 of them. Literally. I love capturing all these special moments, but then it takes 3 days to go through them all. Great job eating healthy while camping! I really need to cut out diet soda too. Sometimes something cold and fizzy just hits the spot though.

  3. I love your currently list! I want to read Wild & Free, too! I've been slacking so hard in the eating healthy and drinking water departments lately. I'm bummed about it but feeling ready to get back on track. I am so glad it's summer and I get to have Dylan home with me. I wish my hubby could be off work with us, too but it eases my heart and mind to have my son home. I don't understand parents who can't wait for school to start back. I'm loving all your snaps and instagram pics!

    Here's to summer and all the sweet pictures and memories to be made!

  4. What a great long weekend for you and your family! So do you carry your purse and your camera bag, or do you have one that is the same?

  5. Oh goodness friend. I sure do like you. Everything about this post made me smile or was something I could relate too. I hope you are having a great "Monday" and getting caught up on whatever you need to.

  6. I'm with you on playing catch-up! A week semi-unplugged has me trying to do all the things to get caught up.
    That picture of Mason is just perfect!
    And all the feelings - yes. How has this school year come to an end?!
    Hope you're having a great Tuesday!

  7. Girl i need to learn how to take picture in manual. Wanna teach me? I love the picture of Mason in his holiday cuteness. :)

  8. Great job with the water! I'm feeling all the feels too with H being done with Kindergarten. Time slow down please!

  9. Camping sounds fun! My new camera arrives today. I'm so nervous!

  10. I need to add Chris Tomlin with Matt Redman station on Pandora because I love them both separately so I'm sure this station is a winner!

  11. I want to read that book! What a powerful excerpt! Ohh I know youll be sharing some good pictures soon, yes?! :)

  12. Isn't photography just the best!? I love it :). And I'm in awe of you cutting out carbs and ditching the diet soda... I should really do both but am struggling with willpower!

  13. I love everything about this! I definitely need to catch up (hence just now getting around to blogs from yesterday) too. Sounds like you guys had a great weekend and I love that picture of Mason! He is a perfect patriot :)

  14. I'm totally intrigued by wild & free! Checking that out!


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
