Reading: The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close. I really loved Girls in White Dresses, so I was excited to see another novel from Jennifer Close. I’m only a few pages in, but so far I’m enjoying it. More on this one soon!
Watching: Happy Endings. Bryan and I are binge-watching Happy Endings on Hulu, and we’re both pretty obsessed. Think Friends if it was was made 20 years later. Obviously it’s not as good as Friends (nothing ever will be), but it has a very similar plot. And every episode makes us laugh out loud.
Listening: Ellie Holcomb/Red Sea Road. I’m loving this album for the season of Lent. It’s a beautiful reminder of God’s unfailing love and grace.
Learning: To be comfortable in my own skin. Getting to know yourself is one thing and making peace with who you are in another. I think we all have things we wish we could change. There are times I long to be more outgoing or adventurous. I definitely wish I was more easygoing and flexible. But every day I’m learning to be more comfortable with who I am and who God created me to be. I’m becoming more aware and more grateful for how my unique personality—and my unique gifts—equip me for the work God has called me to do. That doesn’t mean I don’t have things I need to work on and learn to do better. I absolutely do. But I am becoming more content, and that is a gift.
Anticipating: March Madness! I’m still celebrating the Tar Heel victory over Duke on Saturday and looking forward to a month of nothing but college basketball. Time to dance!
