Reading: A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler. I’ve had a huge stack of books on my nightstand all summer, and this one was recommended to me over and over again. Summer reading is one of my favorite things on the world (even better when it happens on the beach), so I’ll let you know how this one turns out!
Watching: Bachelor in Paradise (and no, I have no shame). One of the best parts of my week is getting together with my friends to watch Bachelor/Bachelor in Paradise. It’s a guilty pleasure, and of course we love the drama—but it also gives us an excuse to get together once a week, laugh, and catch up on each other’s lives. The older I get, the more I realize how precious those friendships are and how much it matters that we make time for them.
Listening: The Naked and the Famous/Young Blood. Bryan has been listening to this song non-stop, so that means I have too. It’s perfect for a long drive…or a dance party!
Celebrating: The end of Vacation Bible School! Every year VBS nearly pushes me over the edge (hence my hiatus from blogging), but I’m always thankful that we do it. I’m always amazed by how much a loud, energetic, chaotic room full of children looks like the kingdom of God. It truly was a great week…but I’m also glad it’s over!
Loving: Summer…and everything about it. I seriously can’t believe that it’s August already. I love summer—the sun, the lazy days, the adventures. I hoping we squeeze a little more summer fun in before September arrives.
