a little update.

Hello friends!

It's been 10 days since I last updated, so I thought I owed you all a quick hello. Last week husband was in Florida for a leadership conference called The Forum at Southeastern University. He had the amazing opportunity to hear some wonderful speakers including Bill Hybels, Joyce Meyer, Tommy Barnett, Brian Houston, and George W. Bush. I've loved hearing all the tidbits of wisdom that he gained from this experience, and I'm planning on going through all of his notes soon! :)

While Jonathan was away, I took advantage of the opportunity to go and spend some time with my family for a few days. It was really great getting to see them, and it was nice that Max and I didn't have to spend that time all alone. I love spending time with my family. I also got to see some of my dear friends while I was was great.

Since we returned home this weekend I've been battling with some sickness (as I've mentioned on twitter.) It hasn't been fun, but I've really enjoyed having my husband back! I missed him lots, and he's been taking great care of me while I've been under the weather. I'm hoping and praying that he doesn't catch what I have!

Whenever I'm sick at this time of year, I love thinking of spring and how sunshiney warm weather is just around the corner! A couple of weeks ago, Jonathan brought home some yellow tulips for me "just because"...and I snapped some photos of them so I wouldn't forget. I'm so glad I did, because looking at them now makes me feel a little better already. :)

Other things that brighten up my day when I'm not feeling well are:
  • green nail polish :)
  • orange juice
  • soup
  • hot chocolate and hot tea
  • warm blankets
  • The Office reruns
  • snuggling with my puppy
What makes you smile when you're not feeling well?

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your week!
