Can you believe this design? I’ve longed for a fresher look — one with photos of those I hold dear. With seven children and one amazing husband I knew it would be a bit of a task to make it look cohesive. Well, a challenge for me, but not for my html loving blog-designing daughter, Hannah. She whipped up this new look for finding joy this afternoon. In about an hour. Love her. She, however, laughed heartily when I asked her how long it would take for a nav-bar. I asked her at 11:57 pm. At least I knew what a nav-bar was, right?

No, I am not going to be revealing my age today. (I might for a coffee gift card) Anyways, I’ve begun to realize that I am aging. Getting old(er). The irony is that I feel really, really, really young sometimes. It doesn’t seem possible for me to be aging — I’m okay with it — but the reality that I’m not a young spring chick anymore is becoming more obvious.
Like when I shake my head at the preteens/teens milling around the gas station. Seriously? The Super America is the only place to hang out on a Friday night? I also felt older when I passed my reflection in the mirrors scattered throughout Target. And, honestly, it might be because I’m passing mirrors in the grown-up section of clothes. Not juniors. That’s where you’ll find my oldest daughters — Hannah and Chloe. I will still only buy cute clothes. Approved by those older daughters. 🙂
I’m okay with aging. Really.
I need to go find that verse in the Bible about gray hair being a crown of splendor. I don’t have any — yet. But, I can guarantee you that there’ll be a blog post on that day.
Today I was featured on 5 Minutes for Faith. It’s quite the honor, and I’m grateful. I’d love for you to check it out — they republished an article I wrote here on finding joy earlier this summer. It’s one of my faves — giving thanks, changing perspective, and priorities. Who would have imagined that I would ever write about that? Seriously — I am grateful for blogging, for the friendships that I’ve made, and the encouragement you’ve provided. Thank you!
Hoping that your Saturday is blessed.
