{currently}

So I am linking up again with Becky over at ChooseHappy! For my Currently post! I just love summer time! I feel like we have so much going on – I’m exhausted, but oh the memories that are being made!!!
Currently, we are….
Creating… for Father’s Day, Harper and I did some super fun outside crafts for Rob for Father’s Day! I was really happy with how they turned out & better than that – Rob LOVED them and Harper is so proud of her creations!
I had an idea of what I wanted to help her make for her “handmade” gift for Rob. So we headed to Hobby Lobby.  I was planning on just getting a regular white canvas, but when I saw the burlap canvases… oh my! I just KNEW that is what we needed! Plus they were on sale! Double bonus! We just got some craft paint and paint pens… pulled a medium size paint brush from my craft stash and this is what we came up with! Harper did all the blue with the paint brush, all by herself! Then I helped her make the hand print sunshine, then of course did the writing.

I had also been looking for the perfect addition to one of our gallery walls – so when I saw the tiny 6×6 burlap canvas I snatched it up and incorporated a couple of my favorite pins on pinterest to make this with H…. again, a handprint sunshine! I’m currently quite obsessed with these burlap canvases!!! My next project with them will be for above our bed!!!

 Enjoying… We have been loving all the family time as of late! Grandma & Grandpa T are here visiting form CA! We’ve gotten to spend a lot of time enjoying their stay here! And of course the kiddos are enjoying all their cousin time together!

    Also … one of our best friends from CA was out here for work this past week and stayed with us!  His visit was sure good for our hearts! Just wish his wife and kiddo could have come too!
Smiling… A few weeks ago, I picked up some chucks for Harper in the next size up! Well, good thing – she’s wearing them! And what’s even better than her adorable red ones she had that she outgrew?! Matching black ones with mommy!!! Mine are so worn out they are about to fall apart – but still remain my favorite shoes! Harper is on the same path… she calls them her “hucks” haha.  And there’s just something about the size of these! ha! They just make me smile!!

 Crying… Harper had her first major fall yesterday! She took a head dive (literally) from our couch.  I’ve never heard her scream so loud! It was one of those learning moments for her – for sure!  She was reaching for the lamp that I tell her a zillion times a day to not play with.  I had just corrected and redirected her about 5 times and had lost my “will” to do it one more time… and boom! Now she points at the lamp and says “no-nooooo, fall dowwwn!” I think it was a good lesson learned.  but she has a good goose egg and scratched up face to show for it!
 Doing… I FINALLY got Harper’s reading wall finished this weekend! It only took me over 18months, ha! But that’s ok, I loved the way it turned out! I’ve had this stuff sitting around for SO long!

Swooning… Oh my hubby! He’s just the sweetest!! We’ve had a great last couple of weeks relationship wise! You know how sometimes your marriage is REALLY good.  Sometimes its challenging, sometimes its work, sometimes you want to punch each other in the head. haha! But the great thing – it’s all ok at the end of the day! But, all that to say – we are in one of those REALLY good seasons right now!  We’ve been steeling time away together… even if it is to play Jenga in the garage after H is in bed! And these two dozen roses!!! love just because surprises!!! & to top it all off… yesterday afternoon he set up a candle lit bath with lavender and rose petals, all complete with a glass of wine.  just for me.  then took H downstairs for some daddy/daughter time so she wasn’t pounding at the door haha.  it was heavenly!!! he loves me so well!

Planning… in the next couple of weeks we have birthdays to celebrate, our nations birthday, and a small family vaca away as a family as well as our first little get away ALONE!!! I’m quite excited (and nervous for the later part).
Life has been pretty trying lately – and a little heartbreaking – but God is also blessing us in abundance! It’s hard not to find the joy in the blessings He continues to give us – and ultimately the joy in my husband and little girl! I am so blessed to call them mine! ♥
