I'm justifying my lack of posting by the fact that there isn't really anything going on. Chris is busily finishing the chicken coop and we have Carver's pirate themed birthday party this weekend. I've been running around crazily trying to get everything ready for the party and a bridal shower I'm hosting next weekend. But the real reason why I'm posting is this:
My life has been turned upside down... in a GOOD way! I just finished reading this book called 7 by Jen Hatmaker (read this). It's about her mutiny against excess and making room for God in her life. It totally changes the way you look at your life and makes you rethink the "American Dream" of more is better.
This book has challenged me in more ways than one to live simpler, eat healthier, spend less and love more. It will break your heart and inspire you to change for the better. Our group is ON FIRE right now and I love it! I can't help but not talk about it, that's how good it is! I challenge you to at least check it out. You won't regret it.
