Today (technically yesterday at this point) was filled with giggles. Lots of them. Plus warm snuggles and hot toddler breath on my face from Elsie laying on my chest as I sang her to sleep. That hasn't happened since she was Vernon's age. Speaking of the mister, Vernon is becoming more of a little man with each passing day and just today walked up to me, took his paci out of his mouth and kissed me right on the smacker, then walked away dragging his blankie behind him. I died. So sweet. The both of them.(Look at these pics below of these two sweet babes, exactly a year ago to date...)
I'm also excited in terms of the blog for the month of August. As I wrap up July with over five hundo followers, thanks to all of you and a lil push from miss Alissa last night on twitter I will be kicking it off with a giveaway! So be on the look out for that tomorrow. I'm also stoked for all the blogs I'm partnering up with this month and can't wait for you all to meet them or for the ones you do know to maybe get to know a little better. Because seriously, they are awesome!
However,I always try to remind myself that just because I have big plans and have a list of things I want to get checked off for each month that I need to treat each day as a blessing and to not get ahead of myself. To pray that my plans align with God's plans for my life because I don't know about you but I've been there. You know, there in that place of disappointment and regret. Worry and maybe even a tad bit confused when YOUR plans don't go the way you had intended. When in fact if you had taken the time to pray about those plans and really listened you might not have gotten into the sitch you ended up in. Yeah I've been there and pretty much want to avoid feeling disappointed when my plans go array. So I'm praying to stay focused and driven by only God's word.
"Many are the plans in man's heart. But it is the Lord's purpose that prevails." --Proverbs 19:21
So now I can either keep writing my thoughts or give in to my heavy mascara coated eyes and leave you with this. July was good but August is gonna rock people! Bring. It. On.
