High Five for Friday!

{one} RAIN!! After weeks and weeks of drought, we finally got some much needed rain. And the Lord blessed us with an abundance of it too! It was a rough night up with puppy {our first thunderstorms in the new house}, but we are grateful for the provision. While I have enjoyed the extension of the warmer weather, I know my husband is looking forward to the rain ushering in more Fall-like temps.

{two} I have been in full crafting mode! Our craft show is in 3 weeks, so I am working fast and furious to get my products ready to sell. It has definitely been a lot of work, but it has been so fun to have multiple craft projects to work on! {Thankfully, I am much farther along than the blank/plain wood in the photo :) }

{three} My sweet friend Laura and her husband have taken the steps to become foster parents. I am BEYOND excited for them, as they seek to trust the Lord and love on sweet kiddos in need of a loving and safe home. Mike and I will be babysitters for them {like we were for our neighbors in McKinney}, so we get to partner with them as they start this adventure. Laura has started blogging about their journey, and has even started a few "Foster Care Friday" posts. If you have a second, check out her posts here. It's good stuff.

{four} I have been working off and on with organizing a gallery wall in the new house, and I think it has finally come together. It's fun to have a mis-match of photos and wall art to decorate our living room. Completely random, I know, but this wall makes me happy every time I pass by it.

{five} This weekend, we don't have any set plans, other than sleeping and working on a few projects at home. It might be the last "free" weekend we have for awhile, so we plan to enjoy it. I am looking forward to a low-key weekend, hopefully enjoying a rainy day nap or two!

Happy Friday!

  1. So I'm a little late in this realization, but do you own a saw that will easily cut all this wood?? Because if so, I'm totally bringing all of my projects to your house because all we have is a manual hand saw. And it's terrible :)

    Oh and thanks for the shoutout ;) love you friend!
