Happy Friday! These past couple of weeks have absolutely flown by; life has been moving at such a fast pace, per usual. I had to share this inspiring photo of our Callie girl running around our backyard - isn't she the most darling tripod you've ever seen?! We are so grateful for her good health and for the way she's adjusted to life without her fourth limb, and we are equally encouraged by her bravery and resilience. God really knew what He was doing when He gave us dogs, didn't He? The past few weeks have been full of lots of goodness. We've been meeting friends for dinner (at new-to-us spots, like Pints & Quarts and Wild About Harry's, plus some favorites like El Bolero and Taqueria La Ventana) and delivering meals to friends with new babies. We attended a gorgeous wedding at The Brooks at Weatherford, and I'm heading home to Chicago tonight to attend my cousin's wedding tomorrow (I'm wearing this dress and I'm really excited about it). We're planning parties and adventures and schedules and trips (more on the latter to come!) and enjoying the hustle and bustle of it all.
Have a great weekend, and enjoy some fun links!
I'm not 30 yet but I totally identified with this list created by the Huffington Post, 30 Things We Do In Our 30s That We Didn't Do in Our 20s. I really resonated with #2, #14, and #18.
This article - Why The Overhead Myth Stunts Nonprofit Growth - was so encouraging to read. Non-profit employees and donors alike should definitely check this out and join the conversation.
Speaking of reading, what titles have you been digging into lately? I'm currently flying through The Hypnotist's Love Story and I recently finished In the Unlikely Event and The Status of All Things, both of which were really enjoyable. I've got The Royal We, Modern Romance, and Circling the Sun on the docket. What else should I add to my list?
I know it's still blazing hot in Dallas but I've already busted out the dutch oven to make white bean soup and it's just as magical as always, even if it's not yet soup weather. It's so easy to make and leftovers freeze really well.
