life lately

so, hi!

i literally haven’t blogged since last year (haha) but i seriously just ran out of time.

the last few weeks have been insane for us. 

we all got sick the week of christmas (which isn’t busy enough, apparently) with a horrible cold, then got hit twice with a stomach bug, and then my cold turned into a minor case of laryngitis, and then i had a pancreatitis flare up that left me bed-bound for 3 days straight.

then we had to cancel our anniversary vacation, and then again had to cancel a vacation to my parent’s. 

and all the while lilli cut two molars.

we were all riding on little sleep, lots of frustration/disappointment, and lots of prayers.

and then (that’s my new phrase for the year), last weekend we were hit (like a brick wall kind of hit) with some life changing stuff. can’t talk about it yet (nope, not preggo), but it literally turned our world upside down.

we took this past weekend to sit down and pray. we prayed with each other, for each other, and just for our life. we had no idea what to think or what to do, and God so graciously reminded us that we don’t have to know what to think or what to do because He's already done that for us

He laid some crazy big things on our hearts during our weekend, and we are so incredibly excited. we are nervous, but we are so ready to take on this “new life” He has prepared for us. we know that no trial we go through is without His grace, mercy, and love. we have simply decided to stop worrying about it, and to let Him have it all.

there’s no better way, am i right?

i hope your 2017 has been way less eventful (in a good way!) than ours has been!

talk to you much sooner than the last time! ;)

xoxo, Brandi
