Christmas tree farm

Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year. It is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus - our Saviour who set everything back in place and brought new life to the earth. What a splendid time, and what a reason to celebrate!

First Snow

The first snow is always a delightful event. I looked out my window in the morning, and quite literally jumped out of bed and ran to wake up my brothers. Snow calls for two minute showers and tripping down the stairs in a hurry to get outside. ;)

Last night my mom and I drove to my grandpa's barn to pick up our bins of Christmas decorations. We also got my mom's old four foot tall dollhouse; I am beyond excited to renovate it!

Christmastime is just around the corner and I couldn't be more ready.

A day to give thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you all enjoy this day with your family, friends, and food.

To celebrate this wonderful day to reflect on many blessings, I've compiled a short list of things that I am infinitely grateful for.

1 // The sky. 
I love it's many different colors and designs - I often find myself thinking that it is so beautiful it seems as if Jesus could return any minute.

2 // My family. 
God truly blessed me with a wonderful family. I am thankful for my parents and their love for God that they've shared with me, and I am thankful for my two brothers who double as my best friends.

3 // People in general.
Humans are really really wonderful. I am thankful for the lives that have intersected with mine and for the people who have inspired me, taught me, and loved me.

4 // Jesus.
I am never not amazed and grateful for Jesus. He died that I might live, he forgave my sins, and he is living and loving right now.

What are you thankful for?

Have a splendid Thanksgiving!
