What’s on my mind this beautiful day…
This weekend my mother-in-law surprised me with the most enormous bouquet of flowers ever.
Not many things bring me joy like fresh flowers do, and I had so many I created multiple arrangements with more to share!
My current favs are hydrangeas and garden roses. I’ve never loved roses but those pastel pinks totally inspire me.
Saturday we got to celebrate the marriage of one of the sweetest girls I know and a member of my Wednesday night dinner club!
Court & Nathan’s wedding had the most elegant and laid back style, and there were so many friends to spend time with. It was the perfect night!
Yesterday Brent and I went on a countryside run near his parents home.
We ran 5.5 miles, which totally shocked and excited me because I’ve definitely being feeling a little “out of shape.”
I’m so thankful for a husband who loves me enough to slow down to my pace and stick with me on runs like that one.
The weather was truly beautiful and I loved coming home to see the evening light shine through the trees onto the brick wall of our apartment.
We ended the weekend with a delicious fresh & local dinner, (recipe compliments of Martha Stuart herself) and watching the World Cup with friends. (Although I couldn’t really tell you much about the game since Amber and I took a walk that lasted for it’s entirety haha!)
Lately I’m learning to see the beauty in little things, and to truly enjoy moments for what they are. Our days are hardly perfect, but I find that when I focus on the pieces that I love I can cultivate thankfullness within my own heart and that of my husband, and those around me.
So here’s a recipe for you to try as you begin your week-

And a post to help you remember that Mondays aren’t so bad when you’re counting your blessings 🙂
LOVE YOU ALL!
