Reading // My bible. I started the 365 Days Of Truth on the She Reads Truth app. I am doing an okay job staying caught up and trying to read with attentive ears. Ultimately staying caught up isn’t the goal, learning and growing is. I love it when I read a familiar story but pick up on a detail I had never noticed before.

Learning // How to take pictures in manual. I have learned it isn’t easy, but it isn’t nearly as hard or intimidating as I thought it would be either. I have really been enjoying this free course online


Watching // Friends. Just in case you missed it Netflix added 200+ episodes recently. Finally a series that will take me less than a couple weeks to watch… maybe. 
Making // I decided to get crafty with a fun DIY project this weekend. But you’ll have to come back tomorrow for the details on that. 
Wishing // It was warmer outside. Temps under freezing for several days in a row. Just not cool. 
Looking Forward To // The beginnings of this years garden. So crazy to think that in about a month I will be starting my seeds. Peppers need about 12 weeks to mature. I can’t wait for dirty hands again. 

Wearing // It is #SCARFWEEK on Instagram. So I just might have to wear a scarf every day this week. Make sure you link up your picture and join in on the fun.

Drinking // Tea, lots and lots of tea all day long. English Breakfast tea with honey and half & half or Green tea with honey. 
Wanting // A good sale at Kohls so I can order a pair of my favorite jeans ever. 
Planning // So much to think about in the planning department. This years garden, Emily and Russ’ birthdays and next years school curriculum. Must, not, procrastinate. 


Praying // That God would teach me more about Grace this year.


Missing // Christmas. Winter with no Christmas is just not fun.

How about you?

  • Love your scarf! SO talented!

  • Haven't told u lately but I am proud of u. And those two girls r beautiful and special. Love u and your family.

  • Your photos are looking great!! There definitely is a learning curve with manual mode for sure. So worth it though. What kind of camera did you get?

    • It has been tricky and that was just my second attempt. It will be fun playing with it in different scenarios.

      I have a Canon SL1 and I LOVE it.

  • These post are among my favorite! And, so many bloggers have been posting them lately. I think I need to borrow this for a rainy day. 🙂
    Your photos in manual are awesome! I'm so intimidated to switch over. Might have to check out those courses, though!

  • I agree – winter without Christmas is no fun. Can't wait to see your DIY project!!

  • Loving how your pictures turned out! Playing around with manual is sooo worth it!

  • I'm with you. Winter after Christmas isn't nearly as fun. At least when you have a winter. I learned that in Colorado. But in fl it's the best. So how about a 'winter' house in fl?

  • Looking forward to seeing what you DIY'd 🙂 Also, your pictures are amazing, especially since you're just learning! I will have to check out that course!

  • Amy

    Thank you so much for sharing the Manual mode class! I need to practice more with manual. It intimidates the crap out of me. lol! And I'm on the Friends train, too. I can't stop laughing out loud. I love that show soooo much!

  • Yay for shooting in manual!! I'll have to check out that course!

  • So fun with the gardening and love your scarf!

  • Your scarf is GORGEOUS! Love your outfit!
    Also, I don't know how much the jeans normally cost on sale but I clicked the link to see what your favorite jeans were and they say $29.99 (at least online)! Might be time to do a little shopping!
