Technology can be so wonderful at times. I have been blessed this year by a Bible study I am doing long-distance with my best friend, who lives over 600 miles away. (Yes, I looked it up). Even though it would be ideal to be able to hang out in person, it's still a good feeling to be able to study together, pray together, and to share our lives with one another via modern technology. Today I even learned to use headphones with a built in speaker, and I didn't even have to hold the phone! :)

My husband surprised me for Valentines day with a gift that he PLANNED IN ADVANCE. For any of you who know me ~ this is huge! I was so impressed. Thank you Dear!

Sweet little girl cuddles in the morning.
The sweet smell of newborns
Singing in harmony
Listening to the Beatles
The aroma of coffee

The sound of children playing outside
The quiet that fills the house after the children are asleep
A fire in the fireplace
Diet Dr Pepper from Sonic (oh - did I mention that one already?)

Part of my weekday morning ritual is to stop by Sonic and purchase a large Diet Dr Pepper. It lasts me through the morning. It costs me $1.07, and so far this year, I'm still using a gift card that I was given for Christmas to pay for them. (Thanks Travis & Rachel!)

One of the benefits to having your own business is setting your own hours. My studio is closed on Mondays. Since I work many Saturdays, it's nice to have a little time at the beginning of the week to get organized, do my grocery shopping, etc. This morning I started off by having an un-rushed breakfast with a friend. It was so nice to just take the time to sit and visit over a cup of coffee. It got my week off to a good start!
