January Eighth

“I’ve had early morning coffee in this place many times before, needing some peace and ‘alone time’. This morning for the first time I noticed my shadow…you’d think I would’ve noticed it before, because it’s pretty obvious. It was a good reminder that I am not alone even when I’m lonely. He {Jesus} is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow…He isn’t going to leave me.”

“I spent the afternoon in Ventura {visiting the girls, pictured here} and then Shiloh and I needed some quiet time so we sat on the beach for bit at Surfer’s Point and watched the people as the sun went down.”

“I love weekends! I host a small group at my house on Friday nights, tonight was the first night I was actually able to be there :) We turned on these pretty lights and had a bonfire with s’mores, everyone complemented me on my ‘redneck fire making skills’ hah!”

Happy New Year!

The older sister is actually visiting the younger sister this week, so we’re having fun trying to figure out this blog together!

{quick conversation between the sisters about 30 minutes ago} 

Marie: “Do you know what today is?”

Sarah: “Of course I do, it’s January 1st”

Marie: “Exactly” 

Sarah: “Whoooooops”

You would think being together means twice the brain power, nope.

Anyways, this blog is mainly for us, but if you are following you can read about the beginning here and you should definitely take a few minutes to read our bio {that Marie wrote} here.

“Starting two thousand and twelve with a sick baby that somehow managed to sleep in bed with me all night long. It’s gonna be a great year!”

“Marie’s husband gave her a fisheye lens for Christmas and so far I’ve enjoyed it quite a bit!”
