  1. This RULES. It brings me so much joy to see all of the ways that joy is permeating in your life! This is such a giant list! I especially resonate with your feeling of being halfway through July. So, so lame! Haha. Congrats on the big one year anniversary!! That’s awesome!

  2. I want to hear more about this homemade coffee creamer!!! 🙂

    A beach trip?!?!? Sounds great! I spent my summers growing up in SC with my biodad and family….Those beaches are all my favorite! 🙂

    I’m not married, but you’ve got to read John Piper’s “This Momentary Marriage” if you haven’t already. It’s just GOOD!

    Happy Anniversary to you two!!!

    • I will write a recipe post in the next week.. Be on the lookout!!! 🙂

      Ah, I am excited to spend some time there. I haven’t heard any bad things about SC ever!

      And I will definitely check that book out! John Piper is such a genius writer & speaker!

      Thanks so much for your kind words & encouragement, friend!! Stop by again soon! 🙂
