A Great Day

The sun is shining outside. . . I think I am going to be taking Finn on a walk after his nap. Which he is currently taking, peacefully. We went to Target earlier to return some things and grab a few produce items. He was pleasantly behaved in the cart the entire time, and to top it off I met Stephanie Nielson (author of the Nie Nie Diaries blog and the coming soon book, Heaven is Here). I admit I was a little startstruck. But I just had to stop her and tell her what an awesome person she is, and thank her for sharing her amazing story. I just stared at her while we talked and honestly thought that she is probably the most beautiful person I have ever met. I just wanted to give the whole store a hug after talking with her for a few minutes. I'm so grateful for inspiring people in our world who make us feel better by sharing their strength and humility with others so freely. If you haven't read her story, you should. Check out her blog here.

Then I got  a baby update from my awesome sister in law who is ready to give birth literally any moment! I love new babies being born and I can't wait to meet their little bundle!! I love the little thing already.

THEN I got to go down and see Gideon for lunch. Sheesh I love that guy. I got to see where he works and watch him carry Finn around like the proudest daddy in the world. We sat in the car while he ate lunch and we drove through the gas station and got some sodas. It's always just a fun treat to see him during the day instead of when I'm a little fried from being a mommy all day long.

It may not seem like anything special, but for me today is a great day. I am so happy with my little life and my little family. Grateful to have so many simple but priceless blessings from a God in heaven who loves us and truly cares about us.


  1. I love Nie Nie! So jealous you met her! I've met CJane at Cafe Rio once, but have wanted to meet Stephanie :)

  2. Isn't it funny who are celebrities to us? that's awesome. Sounds like a great day to me! Glad Finn is being such a happy boy. once again, I MISS YOU>
