Everyday Light Life: November

Look, I'm not even sure how it's not still October, okay? And now I'm staring down the barrel of Christmas?? It feels like an impending storm... so for just a little bit longer, I'm denying the inevitable, and hiding out from the chaos that plagued last month. Here's how November 2016 looked for us (can you believe we were still wearing sun dresses at the beginning of the month?! Oklahoma weather is crazy!):

Vesper Turns Five

When I was deep in the thick of the "Two-Babies-Under-Two" fog, I remember reading an article that said parents are most content when their children are between the ages of five and eight. I remember thinking, "THAT'S GOING TO TAKE FOREVER!" But I'll be damned if it's not here already... and I have to say, I'm more than content- I'm overjoyed with the young lady I'm raising.

I have a lot to say abut this sweet little sparrow of mine. I whisper them to her before bed- speaking life and love over her like a shield. I remind her daily of the kind heart that she has- tell her how it's a gift that should be used to it's fullest capacity. She's smart as a whip, creative, funny, beautiful, and sassy as can be.

We love you, Birdy. Please don't ever change!
