Favorite Things || Spring 2K17 Edition

I realize that it *technically* is not quite spring yet. However, the weather feels like spring, the trees are blossoming, the flowers blooming, the honey bees buzzing (you get the picture) and by the time I get around to writing another one of these posts it will probably be summer. So spring it is. I can't believe it. I can't believe I am already halfway through this semester. The time really has flown. But I digress. Without further ado, here are a few of my favorite things these last few months:  
  • Hearing my little students on Sunday morning say, “I can’t wait to find out what we learn about today!”
  • Hugs, kisses, giggles, hide-and-seek, and candid conversations with my contemplative nephew and my spunky sassy niece
  • Sunday afternoons with family and friends. These are the good days. 
  • weather like spring in FEBRUARY. Give me more, please. (yes, i know this means the summer will be miserable)
  • evening runs in the pink sunset glow (they don't happen often enough these days)
  • stretching and getting significantly more flexible (the splits are going to happen this year...or maybe more like in the next five years, but they are going to happen)
  • new music from Michael BublĂ©, Allman Brown, Colony House, Ellie Holcolmb, and Allison Krauss
  • seeing Newsies Live! in theaters - if you missed this you missed out big time
  • chai spice and matcha lattes (fuel for life my friends)
  • reliving high school in my General Biology college class (the nostalgia is real, folks)
  • learning to use my new Instant Pot - it's been an uphill battle since apparently i have a phobia of steam
  • writing news articles and (fake) obituaries for my Journalism class! 
  • catching up with good friends over coffee
  • making wedding plans with my sister and getting oh-so excited for the future!
  • seeing plans become reality one step at a time
  • witnessing God's providence every day in the big and little things! 
And there you have it! What are some of your favorite things this spring season? Please share!  


  1. * I love the slightly warmer weather... almost spring!
    * Daily prayer with two friends. Today as day 10 and we'll continue through till Easter.
    * Feeling blessed with God's daily provisions.
    * Ginger root tea! (hot or cold)
    * And as always, coffee!

    1. Lovely!! Ginger root tea is the best. Prayer with friends is even better. ^_^
