Decided at 5:30 pm that I felt like doing my hair and makeup for no reason, so I did. Because I am enough of a reason. Self care is enough of a reason.

Dexter is convinced I only make the bed for his personal amusement.

from hiding in the corner figuring out how to make enough money to buy the building by grandpa's church to hiding in the corner having real talk about life and relationships and faith. some things never change (but I'll always be older 10 months of the year). ❤️ #cousinlove

I grew this Dahlia, if by "grew," you mean "planted a bulb, forgot about it, then was shocked to see flowers."

Never underestimate the blessing of a friend to whom you can voice your ugliest thoughts and deepest fears without facing judgment. I'm so thankful that I'm just an hour's drive from precious time with this girl.

Aaron is one of the most loyal friends I've ever known. We literally grew up together and shared bonfires, youth group events, movie nights, laughter, tears, and a sizable number of his chocolate chip cookies. And for so many of those years, I've prayed he would meet a woman who could adventure alongside him for life. Today I watched him marry that woman. Words can't express how happy I am for them and for the things I know God will do through them. ❤️ #readytoridley

the most decadent of summer dinners: caprese with heirloom tomatoes, fresh burrata, balsamic glaze, and basil from the backyard garden. .

Dragged Jocie to the Meridian Family Reunion because we have a tradition of terrible photo booth pictures to uphold.

I've always been a library girl. I got my first card as soon as I learned how to write my name - and no, thank you, I did not want the primary colored "kids' card." The librarian in the tiny town where I grew up knew me by name and recommended books to me.
I recently decided to make space in life to read again. I want my attention span to be longer than a blog post. So, about a month ago, I ventured into my new little library in my new tiny town. The librarian's name is Phyllis. She learned my name right away and always has a tidbit of town gossip or a book recommendation when I stop in after work.

Nothing to see here. Just my absurd cat laying in another absurd position.
