Let's Look - What's In Our Grocery Carts

Happy Wednesday!!! Today I thought I would hop on to the Let's Look blog link-up about our grocery carts. 
Oh, grocery stores. I can't even remember what we did before we had Jane, I think we would grab groceries at some point after work, and it was somewhat of a non-event. But then add a little one, and now, every grocery store run feels like an actual event haha And most times one we welcome because Jane loves it SO much and always has... So today I just brainstormed ten things that are almost always in our carts. This obviously varies depending on what we're having for dinner, what grocery store we're in, what time of year it is, etc, but here are a few things that you can almost always find in our cart!! 

1. Jane.

Our Closet Extravaganza - Pierce's New "Office"

Happy Tuesday!!! It feels so fun to be back!! We had the BEST break!!! We loved having Pierce home for a few extra days, I loved the afternoons with Jane with no tutoring or Discipleship Group, we soaked in the weather, and I even enjoyed a few naps when I normally would have written my blog 😉 It was a week for the books for sure. And we are so grateful that we got so much done upstairs as well!! I thought I'd share *Part 1* of our "Closet Extravaganza" that we embarked on earlier this year...

Friday Favorites - Tutoring, Hockey Games, and Spring Break!!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! My friends, even though I'm not teaching this year, I still LOVE the time every year when Spring Break rolls around.

Here are just a few favorites for your Friday morning!! I hope you have found so many small joys in your days as well!!

Frame This Moment - Morning Quiet Times.

Aww Happy Thursday and LAST *bonus* day of February!!! I can't believe it is already the end of the month!! It's no surprise anymore that today is by far my favorite day of the week - the weekend starts a little early in our minds with our love for Thursdays. And these sweet days becoming Frame This Moment Days have definitely become a favorite this past year. A little chance to stop and thank the Lord for a small moment in time that oftentimes might otherwise go unnoticed or overlooked. It's been such a sweet practice for me, and I'm thankful so many of you have started sharing too!! Here's a little look at our Frame This Moment from this past week!

2023 in Review

Well, I had all intentions of posting this little one earlier in the year, but I thought the end of February would a sweet time to reflect on all that 2023 held... This is my third year recapping our year, and they have become some of my very favorite posts...
We had a big year this year with little Jane turning one, our first full year as parents, and the ending the year with a second on the way. We had so many trips, adventures, time spent with family, and many, many simple and sweet days at home. It was a fun year to document here on the blog, but so sweet too to take a look back on a few favorite memories throughout each month. We are very thankful to the Lord for his many blessings and grateful for so many of you following along as well!! I hope you settle in with a cup of tea on this Tuesday morning as we take a little look back on the Riddicks' 2023!
