 Its the middle of April and I'm not really sure where 
the whole beginning of April went...

Josh bought a bike this weekend and where we went to pick
it up I was certain either we were going to get shot
or we were going to watch someone get shot. Epic.

I've been seeing of pictures of spring all over Facebook and Instagram,
you know where its still not spring?? HERE.
Spring in Chicago is always slow in the coming and quick in the leaving.

Although on Sunday we had some 50 degree weather and all the sudden
everyone was out and we had such fun with lots of impromptu plans.

While visiting Bethany this weekend we realized we've been friends
almost 15 years. I feel so old and so blessed at the same time.

 I shifted this and that around in our spare room and now
it feels 3x bigger.

I still have an itch for minimalism.
It's still making husband nervous.

We're going to spend the next couple nights in said spare room
because I'm feeling extra Anne Shirley-ish lately 
and the room has such beautiful light right now (:

I have Eucalyptus everywhere.
It makes our home smell clean even when its not.

We made homemade pizza the other night.
Goat gouda cheese, broccoli, and bacon,

I love people's laughs.



  1. Great work on the photos, again ;) And what do you know? Jonathan just bought a bike himself! Now Josh and him can be bike riding buddies :) I hope Spring comes soon for you! And I love your mentionings of Miss Anne Shirley. Ya'll didn't happen to jump on an older lady already asleep on the bed did you? ;)

    1. haha! I love that you finished that reference! But no, no older lady (:
      Yes to bike buddies! Now you just need to get a bike and we can ALL be bike buddies!
