I'm back! Can you tell? It was kind of like being gone and kind of not. I so enjoyed my time with family and friends. I am blessed. Over the weeks, God has been doing some serious work and me and my husband. We are growing in Christ a ton, growing closer to one another through our struggles and finding a deep joy in our family. It has been hard, emotional and delightful all at the same time.
During my time away, I thought about a new weekly post! I'm sharing the first of many with you today. Throughout the weeks ahead, I will be challenging myself to do various things for a week. Some will be really easy and quite silly. Others will be tough, but rewarding I'm sure. This week I did a two-fer to get things rolling.
One - wear zero makeup (except cherry chapstick) for an entire week. Pictures of me with and without makeup coming soon. Insert butterflies and serious loads of apprehension here! (This is a pretty big area of struggle for me.)
Two - wear skirts for a week. Now I know to most this doesn't seem like much of a challenge, but when you have two boys and really prefer jeans over anything else...it's a BIG challenge. Here's a look at my challenge day by day.
Guess what? Wearing a skirt isn't all that bad. It can actually be kind of comfy cozy. Who knew? Don't go thinking I'm a changed woman. I am totally itchin' to slip on a pair of jeans. Doing so just feels more me, like wrapping up with a yummy blanket and a good book on a rainy day. Or playing footsies with your loved one while watching a good movie. All good things. Hey guess what? It's FRIDAY baby. I hope you enjoy every minute of it - the hard stuff and the moments of joy. xo
