What I'm Loving Wednesday

Wednesday, you are more than welcome here. Now, the mosquito I keep glimpsing around my room.. not so much. But in other news, today I am linking up {here} for What I'm Loving Wednesday. Let me tell you, there is plenty to love.

The Color Run
*I first heard about this over at Under the Sycamore [one of my absolute favorite ladies to follow!] when Ashley was listing the 5k's she was planning to run. It came up again this week on Pinterest and I knew it was something I wanted to do. It is a 5k where at the marker for each kilometer, volunteers for the walk throw dry paint of a certain color onto the participants. By the end you are joyfully splatter-painted as you cross the finish line. I am hoping the races appear in Austin and Dallas again next year since I've missed them this spring.

Lineage of Grace
*I have just finished this collection of stories by Francine Rivers and it is now among my favorites. She takes what we know of the five women listed in the genealogy of Christ and explores their stories, highlighting how God used women of all kinds, simple, faithful, fallen, and unsuspecting, to bring about eternity's greatest gift. You'll visit Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary as they love and learn to follow the Lord. I highly recommend it.

Mindy Gledhill's Album "Anchor"
*Her voice is beautiful and clear, her lyrics just the same, and playing this album on Spotify instantly brightens my mood. My favorite songs include "All About Your Heart", "I Do Adore", and the album's title "Anchor."

Snow White and the Huntsman; The Score
*Originally, I was hesitant about this movie. I am not a Kristen Stewart fan but the story intrigued me. Plus, I am definitely a fan of Chris Hemsworth :) The movie pleasantly surprised me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. But the score! Oh, it is lovely. I listened to it non-stop the first few days after seeing the movie. A great addition to any reading play list.

Knopf Mapguides {London, Paris, Brussels}
*Ahhhh! It's coming up so soon. Three weeks from right now I will be on a plane headed for London. Seriously, it cannot come fast enough. Last week I picked up a few travel books at Barnes & Noble and swiftly became obsessed. They had the same type for London and Paris, and I ordered the one from Brussels which came in yesterday! These Knopf Mapguides divide the cities into regions and have a little fold out map specifically of that region to simplify things and highlight attractions. I shall be highlighting and marking things soon.

Ruche's Summer Look Book
*This is perhaps my favorite look book so far. I now want to run off to Tuscany and dress this fabulously, doing nothing but shopping in farmers' markets and taking in the scenery. Anyone want to come with me? :) The pieces are beautiful and the styling of the shoot is lovely. See more at shopruche.com or at A Joyful Journal's peek into the look book {here}

The 66th Annual Tony Awards
*This is the first year I've actually been able to sit down and watch the Tony's all the way through. Once I did, I couldn't believe I never had before! What an incredible night honoring brilliant theatre! And this year was especially exciting since a Baylor Theatre alum was a nominee! Sic'em Elizabeth A. Davis. She was nominated for Featured Actress in a Musical for her role in Once. She did not win but we are still so proud to call her one of our own. Plus, she looked fabulous on the red carpet.

Rifle Paper Co.
*Y'all. This is where I gravitate to in The Paper Source and Anthropologie. I am a lover of stationery and the Rifle Paper Co. is my brand of choice. Their botanical garden series can be found in several places on my desk, and I have recently been eyeing their set of travel notecards {pictured below}.

All for now, dears. What are you loving this week?


  1. That is so exciting that you are going to Europe! Those three cities are such a delight and all very different. If you get a chance head out to bruges from brussels for a day.

  2. Every time I hear about the Color Run I get sad. I planned to do the Nashville one, and it is booked. Then got so excited that it's coming to Memphis, and turns out I'm in a wedding that same day!!! ugh!!!! you have fun and please take pictures!!!

  3. Love the color run and the book lineage of grace is one of my favorites!
    blessings to you!
