Oh Ellie, our little explorer. She would live outside if we let her. Fortunately, we live by plenty of parks, and she has plenty of neighbor kids to play with. She really loves to climb up the big kid stairs and slide down the big kid slide. And when there’s no kids playing, she loves to climb all the way up the slide, by herself! Oh, how she loves to act like a big kid!

Speaking of being a big kid, this girl is officially in nursery at church! We snuck her in a few months early since we teach the 3 year olds at church. After a few weeks of dropping her off crying, she went in last Sunday without a fuss! Wahoo! She definitely has a little bit of my personality, she can be a little shy in new situations! It is funny watching her around new people, I have the same expression when I’m out of my comfort zone!


And a few of my favorite links this week:

1: How cute are these floral pants and I can’t get enough of this little chevron skirt!

2: If you’re looking for some inspiration, Diana’s blog and instagram are a must see! She’s lost 100 lbs this last year, simply by eating healthy and exercising. I’ve met her once, and she is the happiest, most positive person I’ve met! Congrats, friend!

3: Uplifting message here! “Behold, my joy is full, yea, my heart is brim with joy, and I will rejoice in my God.
