Well, well, welcome March.  I couldn't be more glad to see you.  Thank heavens we made it through the roughest months of the year, woot woot!  I desperately wanted to wear some green for my first post in March, however the single digits just Won't. Let. Me.  Soon.  Until then- pile on the cozy sweaters, tucked in pencil skirts with the ever-present set of tights.  I will say, a pair of white tights is one easy way to spring-up your winter wear.  Something about it just makes it all feel fresh.  Or maybe that the new mules I've been obsessed with forever?  Either way.  Fresh.

This past weekend was a bit of a go-go-go type of weekend.  To slow it down a bit Kellen and I ditched church and spent the morning noshing eggs and reading on the couch.  I've said it before, I'll say it again, once in a while actually resting {as in not leaving your couch/bed} and soul-searching on a Sunday is more refreshing than heading out to church.  I mean, actually going to church is one of my favorite parts of the week and nothing will ever replace that, but sometimes just sitting and being is just what I really need.  I actually read back through some old journals from when Kell and I had just got engaged and found out we'd be moving to Milwaukee.  Such a huge life change, all at once.  Reading over how God totally orchestrated all of that and absolutly provided for every need {and much more} that we had, brought me to tears.  What a great God we have.  He takes care of EVERYTHING.  It's so good to be reminded how He has totally worked and moved in our lives before and to know that He will 100% do it again and again.  #Mindblown
