oooops.

Sorry for the delay in posting. 

Kind of. 

We ran away to the cabin for a few days to celebrate the end of Chase's semester. He works so hard - going to school full time and working full time. He gives so much of himself to me & Knox, his job, his course load at seminary, and to his friends.  Needless to say, it was a much needed getaway and I am so thankful for this little piece of Heaven that Chase's family so graciously let's us use when we need it. It's good for our hearts, our souls, our marriage, our sanity, etc...and It's truly my favorite place in the world. It was special to take Knox there for the first time. He loved it. ;)

I've never been one to be able to "slow down" very often, but motherhood has gracefully ((most of the time)) forced that need upon me. Whether it's driving a bit slower & more patiently to protect my precious cargo or just giving in and resting when Knox falls asleep on my chest ((rather than putting him down and answering pending emails)), I'm finding out how important it is to just slow it down and relax. I'm finding out how crucial to my health and sanity it is to occasionally stop doing so much and just sit, recognize that I'm not a machine, soak up beauty around me, and drink in precious memories in the making. 

Here are some photos from our time in the mountains. I loved every second.

Our little s'more. Amazingly adorable onesie by The Wishing Elephant.

I hope your all of y'all's weekends are restful and slow

love.

  10. It looks gorgeous there! And the pics are beautiful too :)

    I've noticed that my daughter has made me take it slower as well. I always want to do something around the house, but sometimes I simply cannot. I say enjoy these earlier months when Knox is all cuddles because it won't be long before you're chasing him all over the place. My daughter is 11 months now and constantly keeping me on my toes. It's so much fun watching them discover and learn at this age though.

  11. Okay, that roasting marshmallows is so sweet. I also love your outfit in the pic of you standing with your arms out and the mountains behind you. Do you mind sharing the details? I'm obsessed with wearing leggings, cute shoes, and flowy tops and yours is just that! :)
