It has been way too long since I have written anything and my hope is to get a lot covered in one post. So apologies if it is really long.
First I have news...For those of you who may not know, Jordan and I will be moving back to Lubbock. He got an amazing internship with the Bridge of Lubbock and will be finishing up his last semester of grad school and then working there for a semester, followed by graduation in May! So proud of that husband of mine who will be graduating with 2 masters in May 🙂 The other news is that I just recently got a job in Lubbock! I will be moving and start in October…so prayers for a smooth transition from the job I currently have to my new one and for the move.
1. See all of the above. I can’t believe how things are working out for us. Prayers answered in so many ways.
2. The people that I work with in Austin. I have learned so much from them professionally and have been so fortunate to call them my friends too.
3. The Lake. I went last weekend for my friends birthday and for the first time in a really long time I did not mind the 1007624987 degree weather. Bring on the heat Texas!
5. Prayer. Answered and unanswered. My mom took this a photo of us praying around Tanis before her wedding and it is one of my most favorite pictures from the wedding:
(Looking forward to getting to see them (and all of our favorite Lubbock people) more once we move to town. Except for Lauren, because she is going over seas for a year! My little globe trotter.)
(As I have mentioned before, in a previous post, I have some serious problems with painting my own nails. But this is a magical bottle. I was successful and did not have to remove it immediately after finishing. The color is called mocachino. Target. Go. Now.)
(A picture of my parents on their wedding day.)
(Lemon’s new favorite place to sleep. We looked all over for her one day and there she was curled up between the couch and wall. It makes me laugh every time I see her walk over there. This dog puts up with a lot living with us, (between dresses I force her to wear, Jordan always wrapping her head up in a sheet to look like a nun, and our inability to call her by her real name) so I think this is her place to escape. Recently, in honor of the 5th season of Dexter, we tried to change her name to Lumen. We figured it was an easy enough switch but she didn’t seem to like the idea. However, if she had been okay with a name change then the blog name would have to be changed as well, and Daily Lumens just sounds ridiculous. )
I hope your Thursday has been wonderful and may you think of your 5 thankfuls too.
