i can’t believe it’s already the end of april, & i have a 3-month-old daughter. wow. give me a sec to get over the surreality. lots of good things worth sharing from the last month, so here goes.
10. books on my nightstand:
>> persuasion by jane austen [a reread]
>> practicing resurrection by eugene peterson
>> a year of biblical womanhood by rachel held evans [a reread]
>> breaking dawn by stephanie meyer [a reread]
9. song stuck in my head:
>> “can you feel the love tonight” by elton john [i started playing disney pandora station for roo.]
8. mantra i repeat to myself all day long:
>> “just go with the flow.”
7. can’t-do-without accessory:
>> my newest “ring” — an extra pacifier for roo, to be hand on-hand [literally] at all times!
6. must-see tv [or netflix]:
>> still supernatural [on season 6 right now]
5. annual goal i’m most focused on:

3. latest addiction:
>> dr. pepper, always. [i even wrote a poem about it for national poetry month…]

2. heavy on my heart:
>> i have lots of friends who have recently lost parents or have one dying. they’re all older & ready to go, & their families are at peace, but it’s still hard.
1. most looking forward to:
>> honestly, my first mother’s day. [it’s a little bit of a sensitive topic, for me & for others, so i’ll just leave it at that for now.]
so, what’s new with you?
