reading Where'd You Go, Bernadette and loving it.  It's fun, entertaining and a pure pleasure to read.
Also reading For the Love, a collection of short, easy-to-read and uplifting essays by Jen Hatmaker.  Equal parts entertaining and encouraging and just what I need to read right now. Find out what else I've been reading lately here.

knitting my sky blanket and so thrilled with how the colors look together.  I've been keeping diligent track of the weather for my Knit the Sky Blanket, but got a little distracted with sock knitting and haven't actually been working on said blanket over the past few weeks.  My goal is to get back on track before the end of the month, and it's coming along nicely. This is a perfect mindless knitting project and I am pretty much in love with how it's coming along.  I also recently finished a pair of socks and a darling hat for my new tiny niece.

feeling huge at 24 weeks pregnant. I still can't quite wrap my head around the fact that this is happening.  But I feel our little girl (!) moving all the time and we're all dreaming about meeting her in 4 short months.  How grateful I am for this opportunity to experience the miracle of pregnancy again, after we were so certain it would never happen.

planning a week-long camping trip at one of our favorite places on earth without my husband.  (Extended family will be there, but Jason can't get away.)  I'm nervous that Elijah won't sleep and I'll be a raving, ranting, grumpy lunatic by the end of the week.

celebrating 15 years of marriage.  How is that even possible?

loving time in the garden.  All the plants are in, and we've even enjoyed a first harvest of radishes with kale and lettuce not far behind.

making lists of summer reading plans for the kids, and myself.  We homeschool year round, but summer is definitely more relaxed, with lots of extra hours for reading and enjoying books together.

enjoying lots of time outside.  Goodness, winter felt long!

dreaming of a summer full of camping, hiking and adventures.  I started what we're calling Adventure Club with a large group of homeschool families, many we've known for years but we've met lots of new faces already, too. Today we enjoyed a lovely hike complete with in-depth sword fights and daring feats of imagination ranging all over an old amphitheater in the woods.  It was perfect.

working on my 100 Days of Watercolor Lettering challenge. Follow me on Instagram to see what I'm creating each day.
