Taking Stock

Making: Lots of messes and we're never home to clean them up
Cooking: Nothing.
Drinking: Water, always water.
Reading: Brent's pick for this month's book club - The Client
Wanting: A day to take a breather.
Looking: Ahead at lots of changes and hoping they play out exactly the way they were meant to.
Playing: Candy Crush 
Wasting: Sticky notes with too many things to do.
Sewing: Halloween Costumes 
Wishing: We could see all the people we love who live so far away
Liking: Bright bold colors and patterns.
Wondering: when the rug is going to be pulled out from under my feet.  It's been so calm for so long, I'm preparing for a doozie.
Loving: The hot afternoons we have here right now.
Hoping: the summer stays for a little longer but desperately hoping Fall comes soon
Marveling: every time I drive home I just think, "I live here!" 
Needing: Some more time with Brent
Smelling: The bite of Fall every morning I step out the door.
Wearing: Long sleeves and shorts
Following: the wisdom of those who came before me (in the new business owner world)
Noticing: Happy kiddos at swim practice everyday
Knowing: more than ever Heavenly Father is waiting to bless us.
Thinking: How lucky I am to be exactly in this moment in time now.  I treasure everything that we are planning and we have such high hopes for the future.
Bookmarking: Boots and leather things 
Opening: a clothing store like we own the place! 
Giggling: when Steve and Heidi came to visit.
Feeling: At peace.

I felt inspired by everyone who posted something new this week.  It must be the Fall in the air; somehow it always seems to bring a refreshing change that makes you sit back and review.  Summer is a time for Play! and Move! and Do!  But Fall wants to take everything slow.  Fall lends a slower change of pace, preparation, and introspection.  Right now I feel like no matter where I am, as long as I am moving forward, I am succeeding.


  1. This is so clever, I am obsessed with it! It gives me a glimpse into your life. I love you and miss you and am dreaming of the next time we can hang out!

    1. Thanks Bekah! I am so far behind on this blog I figured the least I could do was a snapshot. Got it from here: http://meetmeatmikes.com/2013/08/taking-stock/
