i am so behind. these last few weeks have been really  busy with the husband and life in general. it is officially cold & i sort of like it. it is time for fires, thinking of camping, soup, chili, big sweaters and all things happy but most of all-  THANKSGIVING & CHRISTMAS.

some friends and i went and saw david ramirez at eddie’s attic– he was amazing and you all should go listen to his music right now and buy every album he has.







we also are only $250 dollars away from meeting our goal for our haiti trip in december. words cannot even express how excited and happy i am about this mission trip. to get away from this world of want and expectation to see a world where their  needs are something we take for granted every day. it is good to get out of your box, out of your comfort zone and do something good. i have been feeling like this for a while now, like everyday i do things and they don’t really matter. i want to do something that matters. there is so much need in the world. everywhere you look there is need. whether it be a shoulder to cry on, people dealing with self-esteem issues, someone who does not have food, someone who does not even own a pair of underwear or wear the same clothes everyday. you do not have to go on  a mission trip to bring change to the world, but i am very happy to be going on one. i know the change we will bring there will  bring just as much change for my own life.

other news: we are so busy with planning the holidays- so many families to visit but so excited to see all of them. say a prayer for my brother who is going through his ranger school right now- i know he is going to make it and we are so proud of him, cannot wait to go to his graduation.

i already have been wrapping presents for cory- we have decided not to do family gifts this year bc we are so busy so just presents between cory & i. we will be gone the week before christmas so it makes it easier. the family and i are going to bring a dish style christmas gathering and just enjoy being with each other. however i love christmas and i love wrapping and here are some really cool wrapping ideas i found on pinterest.

  1. Prayers! Sounds like so much to celebrate and be thankful for! (On a side note I made those little cinnamon heart ornaments last year and they turned out cute!)
