Flashing back to a few years ago, in our old house. These pictures make me laugh every time I see them.

Here's a few things cheering me up on this grey, dreary Thursday:

1. This Bad Lip Reading of the NFL. In this format, I could watch football all day, every day.
2. Andrea's latest post. That lady is a bright ray of light, for sure.
3. The RAW BANANA BREAD SHAKE. Do I even need to explain this one???
4. Lori's stunning Instagram page. I want to move to Californian countryside and knit all the things, immediately.
5. This teacher, who elaborates upon the doodles his students turn in on their assignments. Such a creative, fun way to interact with the kids. I wish more teachers would use humor to create more meaningful moments with their students.

Just a (sad) note:

I hate to end this post on a downer, especially after all that fun stuff above, but I thought I should at least mention that my Uncle died. He was hit by a car while walking. We bury him tomorrow afternoon and I'd like to ask you all to pray for my mother and grandparents. He was a brother and a child, respectively, and while I don't grieve much myself (I didn't know him well, especially in recent years), my heart does grieve very much for them. My Uncle was mentally ill for several years, and lived a sort of vagabond existence, and the whole thing is sad, topped off with a sad ending. My brother and I, and our spouses, are going to literally hold these people up, until the worst has passed.


  1. Hi Brittany! First, I am very sorry about your uncle. May he rest in peace. Second, thanks for stopping in at AMothersJournal! I love your header. And you mention in your profile about chronic illness. I have not read enough here yet to know what it is but I struggle with autoimmune thyroid disease. Nice to meet you. Lynn :)

    1. Hi Lynn! I'm so glad you took the time to stop by and comment--thank you! And thank you for your kind wishes about my uncle...that was a tough one, for sure. As for my chronic illness; I struggle with fibromyalgia, which is quite painful and time-consuming.
      I love your blog so much. Keep writing!


Please leave some love--remember to be kind!
