Do you think simplicity is challenging? It shouldn't be, right? It's not in my extroverted bones to sit still, but I need to. I need to be still and breathe and spend time solely with God, Scott & the girls.

I feel like life is moving too quickly and somehow I'm just sort of half-assing everything. This week, the fam and I are on a family retreat. Yes, we'll work and play and go to preschool, and operate as usual, but we're gonna snuggle a lot, and pray a lot, and just be.

This morning over breakfast, Anna was SO proud to announce the leaves turning colors. Children teach us so much. They notice. They listen. They're present in every moment.
