What is this?
This blog was inspired by a friend of mine. He has been journaling using photos that he takes daily and publishes to facebook. I am going to attempt to do something similar, but in the form of a blog. I am the wife of a wonderful, godly, fishing addict and a work-at-home mama of three beautiful boys and life, while it can be beautiful, can also be mundane, which can suck the joy out of everyday living. I have so much to be thankful for, and in beginning this blog, I'm hoping to regain my joy. I hope that this will cause me to seek beauty and pleasure in my everyday life. Today is 7-27-11, no significant date, but I hope, the beginning of something really special <3
A couple of parameters for this blog: I will attempt to sum up each day with 1 picture (A collage is okay!). I will keep my posts short and to the point and I will be taking all pictures with my iPhone 4. Enjoy!

Today was just a slow day at home. I start work on Monday, so I'm trying to enjoy these slow days. My friend Sarah stopped by around 10 this morning for a little visit. She starts work next week too, so we always try to take advantage of the summertime to get some visits in. The first picture was taken at lunch today. I thought it was funny because both Silas and Harper are in their underwear. Somehow, my kids take their clothes off before the day is done. Nothing I can do to control it! After naptime, Bean and I had some alone time together. He was so happy, it was a nice little hangout time for us. The last picture is from my devotional. I loved the line, "To know Him is life's highest attainment." I'm at a time in my life where what I am currently doing, is not very fulfilling. But what I need to realize is the only thing that I need, is Jesus. He is life's highest attainment, the only thing that I need to strive for.
