I am...


I am getting contacts on Wednesday! I’m quite ready not to have to wear glasses (I don’t go anywhere without them) and be able to buy more than one pair of sunglasses that don’t cost $100 because they are prescription.

A rafting trip with friends, I’m looking forward to being on the water and meeting new friends.


I never seem to finish up my sewing projects; I just keep hopping from one to another. My biggest project at the moment is an Edwardian tea dress for this event. Currently, I am trying to figure out a skirt design. (I’m not using a pattern). A couple of years ago I found some beautiful fabric on sale and haven’t ever used it, now I finally have the chance!


My life today does not last forever. A few of my friends are moving away this summer. I currently can’t imagine life without them. In times past, God has brought something even better when my life has changed; I simply have to have faith that He has plans for me.


During winter I wish for the warmth of summer, I always seem to forget what life is like when it's 97 degrees with 90% humidity. I generally compare it to walking through hot pea soup. Thankfully, the beach is only 5 minutes away! And my family takes full advantage of the beautiful blue-green cool water.


After picking three buckets of blueberries on Saturday I baked a blueberry pie for my dad who’s favorite dessert is blueberry pie.
I have pretty much only ate blueberries on Saturday. I ate while I picked, and the bucket has been sitting on the counter in a perfect place to snitch every time I walk by. I’ll probably wake up blue tomorrow… 


For the ultimate sacrifice that so many men gave in defense of our country. We went to a Memorial Day picnic today and one of men in his talk pointed out that today, America can probably win any war. During the revolutionary war, and many other wars, men went into battle believing that they could not win, yet the cause was so important to them they went willingly anyway.  


If have been watching the weather, you’ve probably heard of the tropical storm Beryl. Currently it is headed dead for us on Wednesday. Normally this does not bother me. But the hurricane season hasn’t even started! I’m wondering if this is a sign of this hurricane season being an extra busy one. We’re due for a big hurricane soon.

I’m also worried for the blueberries. On Saturday there were ripe berries, but there were way more that were still green that will be ripe in a week or so. The branches are drooping there are so many berries. I hope this storm does not destroy the crop!

I know just what you mean about the eternal sewing projects; I'm currently rediscovering sewing and just keep cutting out patterns!
It's crazy but good. :)
Please post pictures of your dress! I've been watching your pins on pinterest and am really looking forward to seeing what you finish. :)

Yikes, so sorry about the kindred spirits moving away; I can imagine how you must be feeling. Praise God for using this time to show you His past and future grace in your life.

Love you, friend!
