Whirlwind weekends!

Hey friends, it has been a whirlwind weekend.  My sister, Faith, and her family came in town.  It was so fun having them here and being able to spend some time with Emma my niece.  Emma is 2.5 yrs. old.  That is such a fun age, so curious and eager to learn.  It also helps that she is an absolute ham.  She makes up her own songs.  Hysterical!  We had a nice visit.  We don’t get to see Faith, John and Emma much, they live in Florida, so we cherish the time we get with them! 

I have some sad news to report.  A larger bird has eaten the beautiful eggs that I blogged about in my last post.  I was so upset when I pulled the curtains back to check on them and saw an empty nest.  Elliott went down to see if they had fallen onto the ground, but they hadn’t.  So the only thing we can conclude is that a bigger predator ate them.  The mama bird was extremely confused.  She would fly to the nest and fly away.  My heart broke for her. 

With summer staring us right in the eyes, I want to make some “good” changes with my eating.  I am reading “The Eat-Clean Diet” by Tosca Reno. Here is the link on the back of the book.  It is really insightful and makes total sense.  What changes do you need to make to fuel your body like it should be?  I have to drink more water.  Okay, so here is a debate.  I love iced tea.  I even drink decaf.  The only caffeine I consume is in my morning coffee.  So, is the iced tea considered water?  I mean it is basically flavored water. 

Here are a few pictures of this past weekend!  I hope wherever you are, you are experiencing abundant blessings from Jesus!  He is our hope, love and security!  I praise him for what he has done for me.
