March 25, 2013

Time is marching on

March is almost over, which mean 2013 is almost a quarter of the way through. Life is moving so fast. I haven't been updating much but I have been creating a lot and living a lot. Below are some highlights of my life lately:
  • I had my 5th TMJ arthroscopic surgery in January
  • We celebrated 2 years of marriage
  • David was ordained a deacon at our church
  • I've fallen more and more in love with my job
  • We lead a time of worship and prayer every 3 weeks at our church
  • Anticipating the return of new Doctor Who episodes
  • Lots of hand-sewing and knitting
  • Realization that my jaw isn't recovering and I need arthroplasty
  • Chuy, as always, makes life just a little cuter
  • I've embraced a deeper fondness of fashion
  • We feel more drawn to missional living and doing life with a community
  • We are also hooked on New Girl and I want to be Zooey Deschanel

David and I are also learning to really embrace who we are as a couple, as people, and as the artwork God created us to be. I read this quote on Kristina's blog and I just absolutely love it:
"Embrace the uniqueness God placed within you.
If you can do that, you'll give the world a beautiful gift."
SO GOOD. I've personally really learned to embrace my own uniqueness and not hide it or try to make it more than what it is. God created me in a very particular way and I shouldn't try to be someone else. He already created someone else, there's no need for me to try to reinvent that. Simple.

Since no post is complete without a picture or two here are a few of life lately.
