"When a soul recognises the will of God and shows a readiness to submit to it entirely, then God gives Himself to such a soul and renders it most powerful succour under all circumstances." - Rev. Jean-Pierre de Caussade

7 Quick Takes (vol.15)

1. I really want to get in a groove again with this here blog, but life is slightly nuts and will be for another 3 weeks. Sooooo you might have to deal with just pictures and quick takes for awhile. Sorry.

2. We went on a much-needed vacation! 7 days in Gulf Shores, Alabama. It was so very wonderful and fun and I will have many pictures posted. Eventually. But for now, this:
He had SO much fun!

3. I love being a mommy to boys. Seriously. God really knew what He was doing. And although I am soooo not that mommy that dresses her kids alike, I did buy one set of coordinating outfits when I was pregnant (coordinating, not matching…there's a big difference). I rarely buy baby/kid clothes because a) they're expensive, and b) we've gotten so many for gifts and as hand-me-downs. But, I thought it would be fun to have them both wear cute overalls at the same time (and, um, they were on sale):
Yep, cute. Until Chase pooped all over his.

4. Today my wonderful boys decided to take turns really needing their mommy (to put it nicely). They must have known that I had 472 things to do on our first day back after vacation, because seriously…I still have to unpack and go through our mail and pay bills and do laundry and wash dishes and take care of auction stuff aaaaaand I'm blogging instead. Because when I get overwhelmed with life I just don't know what to do with myself.

5. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned it before, but I like to journal. I started the summer before my junior year in high school…over 11 years ago! There was a time where I wrote every single day (or every other), and I've been pretty consistent with it overall, especially in college. Writing about my day or about life or what's going in my head just really helps me stay sane. So you can imagine my shock when I realized on vacation I had gone ALMOST TWO MONTHS without journaling. And now I'm kicking myself because so much has happened in that time period (emotionally, spiritually, etc.) and there's just no way I could recap everything. Ughhh.

6. So! I really need to get into a routine, but I'm finding that rather difficult with an unpredictable 2-month old and an even more unpredictable 2-year old. Plus I never know when people are going to call/text me about auction stuff. (Are you tired of me mentioning this auction? I'm sorry. It's consuming my life.)

7. So just imagine a house full of 8 adults and 13 kids. And in the midst of that:
Landon on our last night, candy still uneaten in his hand, so you know he was tired. 

And now I should do the same. Because it's laaaaate. And my goddaughter is getting baptized in the morning! :)
