   M O M E N T S  +  H A P P E N I N G S     

-  jackson slept horribly on monday. he was awake from 1-4:30 am. but there was a moment that overshadowed all the lost sleep. i was laying on the couch, just hoping he'd eventually wear himself out. i asked him if he'd like to get on the couch and cuddle with mommy. he proceeded to climb up + get under the blanket with me. he fell asleep less than five minutes later. jared got up right after that to get ready for work, so i took jackson to bed with me, and we cuddled until it was time to get up. i may have only had three hours of sleep, but ironically it was worth it in some strange way. i also ended up taking the day of work, so that probably had something to do with it.

-  jared + i had a looooong discussion about what we want this year to look like financially. we made plans to get out of some debt we've accrued in our marriage. it's not substantial, but we are thinking about our future for once.

-  saturday was a rare lazy day at our home. we ventured out for an early dinner at texas roadhouse, and then had a game night with friends.




   L E S S O N S   +  R E A L I Z A T I O N S    

-  in my reading of the chronological bible plan, the reading for this week was in job. God's Word is always timely for me. instead of mourning with job, his friends were trying to explain everything away. tara-leigh said something that really resonated with me: "we are called to mourn with those who mourn, not advise those who mourn."

-  my polaroid project is on week two, and i already had a moment of, oh crap, what am i going to take a photo of? when i did this project back in 2014, i was living with my parents on their 10-acre property where there was no shortage of photo-worthy adventures. now that i live in a big city, i'm really having to think outside the box, but that's what i love about it.

-  our childcare situation changed again this week, and we've come to the realization that daycare is our only option at this point. it's all kinda up in the air at the moment, and after lots of tears + prayers + talking it over, we are at peace with it.
