    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

I have come to realize that I am having a difficult time in grasping just how much has occurred in these past few years. I used take pride in accomplishing a lot in a short amount of time. Looking back now, I feel as if I should have slowed down, and appreciated more of what I had in that moment (namely my naiveté and youth). With my 30th birthday being just around the corner, I am starting to feel my age.

I don’t know if you are in the same boat as I am, but I also feel as if this summer has flown by too quickly. Usually by now, my husband and I have already been on one or two camping trips. However, with the madness of these last few months, which includes relocating my store, our new income property, and Geoffrey soon becoming a full-time student (among other surprises), I have been praying for a bit of sanity to come my way in August. 

We have one big trip planned for the very end of the month. When we return, our lives will continue to change regardless of whether or not we are ready for them to.

Here are my favourite photos from our first trip as a married couple. They were taking only four years ago, but they seem to be part of another lifetime.

  2. I totally know how you feel! We’re all so busy and sometimes we forget to stop and smell the roses. Hopefully things slow down soon. Enjoy!
