Currently, I am...

Drinking: "Peach Tranquility" tea.

Loving: my new espresso machine. (I've seriously been wanting one for years!) Thanks, Mom and Dad!


Reading: I'm Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid, to get in the Halloween spirit.

Stressing over: my growing health issues (that relate to this). It can be so frustrating to work so hard and not see any progress, but I'm really trying to let go and give it up to God.

Thankful for: cold weather in October, and our fireplace.

Watching: the final season of Downton Abbey. Who else is stoked about the movie?!

Learning: that pain is simply part of the process on this side of Heaven; that there's beauty in life's struggles, and none of us are alone in our suffering. How we choose to live with the pain—to let it defeat us or to rise above it—is 100% up to us.

And a little bonus fun fact: Our Greece trip is BOOKED! Santorini, here we (finally) come. I'm watching Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants tonight to celebrate.


Have a warm Tuesday!
