Randomness in Pictures

Howdy y'all! 
I know it's been a sweet forever since I posted. 
Between helping with the retreat for moms who lost a child
 {one of the most amazing things I've ever experienced
and something I've been trying to write about},
 starting my new job {which I LOVE but is BUSY},
 helping Madison get ready to leave on a mission trip {she left yesterday},
 and all the normal life stuff I've just been pooped at the end of each day!

 I think I'm finally settling in to a routine so 
I should get back to posting normally soon! 

But in the meantime here's a recap of some things that have been going on......
We had our house painted and I had the front door painted turquoise! 
How fun is that? 
I love driving up each night and seeing it- it just makes me smile!

Found this note in our pantry after Madison left to go spend the night with a friend. 
That girl is SERIOUS about her candy corn! 

Took this picture from a book I was reading with Madison in preparation for her mission trip. 
Such wise words!!!

While Tony is recovering from his knee replacement surgery 
our dog Belle has become even more spoiled which I didn't think was even possible. 
She is a MESS!

I am blessed with many sweet and loving friends. 
These flowers were delivered on my first day of my new job 
by one such friend- who happens to be my former boss- 
{who was very unhappy I was leaving}
which made them even more special! 

Having Madison leave for her mission trip shortly after going on a retreat for the ladies who suffered the death of a child proved to be a bit harder than I anticipated. I have been ridiculously nervous about the trip 
{especially the 24 hour bus ride there and back}
 and so my sweet girl has been texting me every few hours.  
Just to tell me she's still alive.
Oh how I love that girl! 

Happy weekend y'all!
