Phone Calls

Wes snuck this photo while I was on the phone with Kelsey. Our phone calls don't happen as often as the "typical" girl might be on the phone, but when they do they usually last plenty long. I love how she will humor me and tell me the happenings from her neck of the woods in chronological order, that way you don't miss anything! I love sitting in a comfy place while chatting, here I was enjoying watching the snow and the workers across the way organize their snow plows. Thank you, Kelsey, for the phone calls and making the time to chat. Thank you for including me in this way and telling me about your adventures in Texas. Thank you for being sweet about my ramblings and enjoying hearing them. Those phone calls to and from Texas have been so nice!

A New Start

     My hope for a new post is that I will continue to post. As I continue to post I would love for this blog to be a place for me to write down small things about this big season of life. I would love to post some things for others to enjoy and maybe smile over, and also for me to use this space as a way of documenting and remembering the things I loved about this season.

     So as this blog got her new background and look for her second start, I was multitasking between frustrated grunts with the computer and test tasting cookies as they came out of the over. What better place to start than to start in my kitchen. I absolutely love my kitchen, I love taking the time to wipe-up all the crumbs I seem to leave all over so that I have a sparkly counter, I love taking the time to do my meal planning for the week, I love trying simple, new recipes, and I love when a cute husband comes and helps me with the dishes as he did yesterday.

I love the yellow kitchen aid most of all
I love the super full and messy drawer with the containers for Wes's meals for his work days
I love the old fashioned soap dispenser that Wes picked out when we were registering and the pink sponge
I love the company and little sounds from Jeffrey our cocktail makes
I love the good smells that come from the kitchen
I love turning out the light and saying good night to my kitchen

Yes, I am enjoying this part of our new season.
