It's been years since I've visited the Natural History Museum so I was so excited to go! It's one of my favorite museums of all time-- so many fun memories here! Even after all these years, the exhibits still felt so familiar. It's so interesting to think that God is so creative when it comes to animals, gems, and minerals!

It's always lovely to visit The Broad-- and even better with such fun company. ♥

This lack of sleep is killing me-- five hours a night just doesn't cut it. It just doesn't...

Rainy days are perfect for ice cream-- so cold, and yet so good! This time it was off to try Chelò Creamery for its Chelò rolls.

It has been such a blessing to study through the book of Daniel with other faithful sisters in Christ! I am encouraged by how they love Christ so clearly and live life in such a way that brings praise to His name-- much like Daniel did in Babylon! Through this study, God has revealed truth through His Word. We know how it will end, with Christ victorious! The battle isn't even close, as He will ultimately reign supreme and all creation will acknowledge who God is.

In this study, we also learned some chapter rhymes! I thought it would nice to write the rhymes down and frame it for the other sisters so that they could look back and remember what we learned. So I put some ink on paper and many (many) drafts later, it all came together! ♥

What a blessing it was to celebrate a lovely birthday with old and new friends at the beautiful Commissary! It's been quite a long time since we've all been out together, and I loved every minute of it. I'm so thankful for these kind of long friendships-- where time apart and far distances don't affect the quality of our relationships once we're back together.

seared black bass; brown sauce, buttered peas.

chicken confit; multi grain risotto, wild mushrooms, jus.

clam chowder; New England style, bacon, tabasco and green curry eggplant; coconut milk, shallots, thai chilies.

"Head down, look straight ahead. Earbuds in, volume off. Walk quickly, but with purpose. Don't make eye contact unless you need to. Look behind you every few blocks, make sure you're not being followed. Don't be obvious.

It's not nighttime. You're not in a known drug zone, or the sketchy part of town.

This is simply how many women steel themselves when walking down a city street in broad daylight, or even when boarding crowded public transportation. Why? Because many women, regardless of age, weight, or appearance, say they've heard something along the lines of 'Hey baby, you want some of this?' or 'I like what I see' or 'nice ass.'

All of those statements are sexual harassment. And while some men might consider them compliments, to many women, they are a threat." - E. Smoth, CNN

Word. Praise God for each day I make it home safely from my commute!

"This is for all the lonely people
Thinkin' that life has passed them by
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
Ride that highway in the sky

This is for all the single people
Thinkin' life has left them dry
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
You'll never know until you try

'Cause, I'm on my way, yes, I'm on my way
Yeah, I'm on my way back home

This is for all the lonely people
Thinkin' that life has passed them by
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
She'll never take you down or give you up
You'll never know until you try"

Every time I look around at the flowers and succulents in my yard, I am awestruck by God's creativeness. The details on these plants are stunning! ♥
