It was two days ago that my mama took me out on the town to see Hamilton. I laughed, I cried, I just took it all in and thoroughly enjoyed it. The words, the music, the whole shebang just blew my expectations away. I keep finding myself singing random bits of songs and thinking about it and how no matter how much I enjoyed the music before, seeing it in person was a while ‘nother ballgame. 🤩

Everyone loves it when Daddy gets to go exploring with us. 💗

So far 2018 has seen me baking up a storm with my trusty sourdough starter, Bianca. If you are looking to get started with sourdough, I can’t recommend enough @theclevercarrot’s book, which is pictured if you swipe. Her recipes are so easy to follow and fit so well into my schedule. I’m sure I will make my longer-fermented recipe on special occasions and keep using other resources here and there, but I will probably be doing most of my regular baking with this book by my side. And if you’re local, I always have enough starter to share. #nicolesadventuresinsourdough #nicolelovesbooks

That moment when you find out there’s a sequel to a book that you loved dearly until you got to the end and wept! A sequel to The Wild Robot is coming in a couple months, whew!

I have long loved @readaloudrevival but we are finally joining the January Read-Aloud challenge, and to Brody’s glee we are finally starting HP book 2.

I still need to sit down and think through some goals for real life (something I love doing), but I did do the all important soul-searching exercise of coming up with some Instagram goals. Here ya go:
•Don’t use stories so much that I forget to post in the main feed, because the main feed is fun, too. 📷
•Pretty monthly divider posts to spiff up my feed. ✨
•More houseplants and pictures of houseplants.🌿
•More book posts because #bookstagram is the best -stagram. 📚
•More people in front of walls. Why am I on IG if I’m not taking pics of people in front of walls? 😂🤷🏼‍♀️
This is mostly silly tongue-in-cheek stuff, but feel free to play along. Life’s too short to be serious all the time. So what are your #2018IGgoals? 😊

It’s been a long three months without a complete kitchen, and my sourdough starter has been long neglected. But we’re on the home stretch and so I brought it out of hibernation to try my hand at @theclevercarrot’s sourdough cinnamon rolls and they were a delicious success! Thanks to my sous chef Hallee and to my parents who actually have an oven in their kitchen. 😜 #nicolesadventuresinsourdough

Not just a new month, but a new year!! (Copying my friend @jenlovesaqua’s cute month divider idea this year! ✨)

Always fun to see what photos you friends liked the best this past year and see this little overview of some of the year’s highlights. I’m happy to see books and my lovely table here amidst the faces I love. And I think that it’s a good sign of community that my dear friends’ adoption finalization made the cut. 💗 I love New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day and the reminder that God is in the business of making things new, bringing beauty from ashes all around and through us. Looking forward to another year and more chances to grow in His love and grace, and relish in His new mercies.

Christmas morning walk. Thankful that this day many years ago ushered in his reign of truth and grace— two things I daily need more of in parenting these three little gifts of mine. ❤️🎄

Part 2 // A few of the fun experiences we had— snorkeling, swimming, rock climbing, playing cards, lots of yummy food and drinks, awesome shows, cultural experiences, the flow rider (harder than it looks!), and a day at the Kennedy Space Center (kids posed by a Myra of the Delta rockets David used to work on). It was a wonderful Christmas gift! Thank you @yayapavone and Papa! #pavonechristmascruise

We had a great travel day! Nonstop flight 🙌🏼 with a super nice seat-mate for Hallee and me. Brody and Hallee had a fun time on their first flight and so did Gigi, who didn’t have a lot of memories from her flights as a baby. Made it to chilly Orlando (?) to meet up with cousins!!

Here’s to a toasty bonfire and good gospel conversations with friends... perfect chilly night to break in our new fire pit, especially since inside our house is all upside down and crazy. #thefieldscarlsbad #communitygroup

Crowd-sourcing question!! Here is a sneak peak at the basic design of our new kitchen! My question is about farm sinks: I don’t know if I want it partitioned or one big sink, and I was originally thinking white but since we’ll have white cabinets and stainless appliances, should I consider a stainless one? Tell me what you think, especially if you have one- do you love what you have or have strong opinions?? Thanks in advanced! P.S. this rendering makes me feel like I’m on Fixer Upper. 😂 If only!!
Morning faves // a little over a month ago, I had began reading the Psalms and I started to write down a verse or a passage in my journal. I have heard of some of you “writing the word” and wanted to try it. I’m loving this simple discipline of meditating on the word by recording verses that speak to me amidst sermon notes and prayer requests in my journal. Do you do this? Has it been a blessing to you? If you haven’t tried it yet, maybe this is a good season to try. 💗📖📝

Taking just a few minutes... (and reading a few pages in Julie Buxbaum’s new book “What to Say Next”- yay!) #nicolelovesbooks

Look closely for my little reader in the background who is up early thinking about his new Kindle which should arrive today! •
