Right now.

I am so anxious for the next big thing. For another baby. For JD to get into PA school. For our first house. It's hard for me to stay grounded. To be here. To love the stage we're in RIGHT NOW. 

It's a work in progress, but I am grateful for today. Today, we have a dishwasher (a luxury I was dreaming of just a few months ago). Today, we both have jobs we really enjoy. Today, we don't have the stress of going to school. Today, we made a really yummy dinner (homemade bread+pasta+broccoli). Today, we played with our spunky two-year-old at a trampoline warehouse. Today, we live close to family and get to see them weekly. Today, we filled our fridge with groceries. Today, we prayed together and Tenley repeated the words. Today is good. 

We took these pictures in the backyard over the weekend. Tenley is obsessed with her new car from her aunts and uncles (thanks Ty, Mik, Tiff & Jared). She asks to drive it daily. 

More about Tenley RIGHT NOW:

Constantly wearing her Anna and Elsa back pack// Picky about vegetables // Loves putting on winter wear (mittens + hats)// Gets super hyper around other kids// Sings several songs, including "The Itsy Bitsy Spider," "Five Little Ducks," "The ABC's," "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," and "Five Little Monkeys (Jumping on the Bed) or (Swinging in the Tree)"// Insists on getting a hug or a kiss if she sees someone else getting one// Enjoys talking to Gracy on FaceTime// Finally accepts the idea of wearing socks// Is described as a "helper" in nursery at church// Asks for Halloween candy several times a day// Able to articulate what she wants really well// So loved.

It is torture to live so far away from the 3 of you!
