Currently in Joyful June


...reading A Million Little Ways by Emily P. Freeman, finishing last month's book club read, and Embracing the Love God Wants You to Have by Taffi Dollar.

...watching season 7 of Grey's Anatomy. I've been re-watching the series and I love it just as much as the first time through. Something's got to hold me over until the next seasons of Grey's, Chicago P.D. and Once Upon a Time return!

...trying to finish strong. I have 1.5 weeks left in Seattle and I want to make the most of them

...eating nothing at the moment. This weekend was full of sweets and celebrations, so I'm taking a break.

...pinning apartment inspiration and Project Life spreads. The two things most continuously on my mind.

...tweeting about some very fun giveaways! Check out my twitter @baileyjrobert.

...going a little stir crazy. However I do know that rest is much needed and I'm learning to embrace it!

...loving having mornings all to myself. With no more opening shifts at Anthro, I get to sleep in, jog the lake, and spend time blogging/reading before the day really begins. It is quite nice, I must say.

...discovering that new habits are hard to make but so worth it. 

...enjoying sweet time with friends. I am really going to miss this crew when I move! Can't I smuggle them all into my suitcase and take them with me?

...thinking about all the incredible things God has done this year. So many answered prayers, adventures, and incredible experiences! 

...feeling pretty tired/sore. I have had severe lower back pain for several weeks and finally saw the doctor last Friday. I am so thankful for an easy-going Monday and for muscle relaxers to ease the pain.

...hoping for a peaceful transition. My world is changing oh-so-soon and I know God will be faithful.

...listening to James Vincent McMorrow. If you don't know him, you should.

...thanking God for the hundreds of little gifts. My gratitude journal is halfway full and I love re-reading it!

...starting to realize how close the big move is. It hit me yesterday at church for the first time and I was a mess of tears.

Your turn! What are you up to this week? Plans, adventures, priorities? I'd love to know!

  3. Re-watching Grey's was my best life choice yet (ok, maybe not the best- but makes the top 10)! It is so good! Enjoy your last few days, savour the moments and take lots of photos for posterity!

    1. Oh girl, Grey's is addicting! I've been re-watching it and I'm halfway through season 8 already. Yikes! And thank you for your sweet encouragement! God is faithful and will continue to be faithful, I just know it. Blessings, dear!

  7. Moving is so fun, but so hard! I hope you enjoy yours and your new place. :)

    I was on the Once Upon a Time train and I'm thinking I need to get back on it. I find myself wondering what's happening all the time.

    A Million Little Ways is SUCH a good book! I have a feeling it's one that I'll keep coming back to. I just love the way that Emily writes and connects faith with everyday life. :)
