Day 109

I really do prefer to blog about the lovely things in life.  Or at least the simple things.  Things that are easy and effortless, like my recent blog posts.  Like cakes and cookies

But unfortunately... life is not all about the pretty.  At least not this life. 

But then that's where faith comes in.  It enables you to put one foot in front of the other even when the days haven't been so pretty.  Or predictable.

And after the days turn into weeks and the weeks turn into months, you begin to see something you never would have been able to see before.  Yesterday with all of its unpretty moments has created a beautiful today.  These are my days, our days. 

And their number is 109. 

I realized it was time for a new update since I kept getting the question, "Is B in town or out of town?"  I guess my lack of posting since Day 37 would lead most to believe he was off flying again. 

Nope.  72 days later and his feet are still on the ground. 

After his second visit with the neurosurgeon several weeks ago, he was told he needed another eight weeks of time off to continue healing.  And so the waiting and the prayers continue. 

There have been a couple of hiccups the past couple of weeks at work with all the paperwork that has to pass hands concerning B's status.  We are hoping it gets resolved in the very near future. 

But whatever tomorrow may hold we know it is Secure.  It is the hope of unseen beauty. 

"He has made everything beautiful in its time..." - Ecclesiastes 3:11

Friday I'm in Love

Nothing says, "BE MINE" better than Essie's Limited Addiction nail polish.  I'm thinking of going red for my valentine...


What's Valentine's Day without a sugar rush?  Check out this adorable 6" Glass Cake Stand in pale pink from Shop Sweet Lulu.


Every time I go to Anthropologie, I am tempted to pick up one of these Clothbound Penguin Classics.  These embossed canvas covers are so irresistible you might just find yourself starting a book club!


Jane Iredale's mineral makeup is a new love of mine.  I recently picked up her PurePressed Eye Shadow in Allure.
