Love Thursdays...

On Thursday evenings I meet with two fabulous ladies my mamma Bonnie

and my friend Debra

We are currently discussing the book "Hinds Feet on High Places". If you haven't read it you should. It's written by Hannah Hurnard. It's an amazing allegory  about a Shepherd and the ones he cares for... a character called "Much Afraid" that I fear no pun intended  I may have too much in common.  We have dinner together, laugh, pray, we haven't cried together yet but I'm sure we will, we haven't been meeting very long...

looking forward to our evening together ladies...


a year of mornings...

i just ordered this book!!! I can't wait... The book was born from two women 3191 miles apart that shared random pictures from each others mornings for an entire year! The funny thing was that many pictures bared shocking resemblances. As well as sharing intimate tranquil moments of each others morning lives. Two kindred spirits miles and miles apart...

Haven't you had that feeling with people before? I have... I've thought I bet we would be great friends if we ever happened to meet!

sneak peak


the most amazing pj's!!!!

i ordered these pj's from macy's and got them yesterday... they are the absolute softest pj's i have  ever worn in my entire life!!!! they are made from a fabric called "mink fleece" OMGosh. I couldn't wait to get home from church this morning (and breakfast at mom and dad's) to put them back on!!! thank goodness i was smart enough to get 2 pair!!!!!!


the journal

i've been desperately seeking out the perfect journal to begin my 2013 writing frenzy .. a fresh start! as i searched this afternoon, to no avail, i realized i already had the exact journal i was searching for. found during a similar frantic frenzy  back in 2005 at barnes and nobal. it had to be leather, black, not too big, not too small... refillable, it must be of quality to stand the test of time.

i found it funny as i read through this fabulous journal that it spanned over 7 years, now extending 8!!! not to last long since it's almost filled full of "brandiruth"... not that i haven't journaled through this span of 8. yes i have... in other more frivolous pen to paper tools... it's just that this one runs from a deeper well. one that i've only wanted to dip into from time to wonderful and sometimes painful time.

i'm not sure where my journaling this year will lead. but i'm ready to head there. i'm looking forward to our conversation... modern technology be dammed!
i've missed  you my familiar friend...
