November | Currently

November is here and I really can’t believe it. I almost completely forgot about this little link-up but thankfully remembered to squeeze this in today. I love this link-up with Anne and Jenna each month, mostly because I get to meet and mingle with some amazing bloggers! Be sure to join the party and share all about what you are currently up to!

Currently fall leaves


COOKING| Food that isn’t too good for me. Truthfully, since Whole30 ended I have not been doing well with my eating. We went grocery shopping last night and I was appalled by what was in my shopping cart. Apart from this, I’m making plenty of soup. Potato Soup, Taco Soup, Chili, Lasagna Soup & more! Soup is definitely one of my favorite foods and truly the best cold weather food.

PLANNING | Lots of celebrations! With Thanksgiving, Husband’s birthday, Christmas, and New Year all falling in the next 2 months there is plenty of planning to do. The holidays are especially chaotic trying to figure out where we’re going, when we’ll be there and what we’re doing. We have so much family that we love dearly that we wish we could spend all of our holidays with, but unfortunately tough decisions have to be made. We are trying to get those tough choices out of the way so we can start planning all the fun stuff! Being this is only our 3rd married Christmas, we are still working on establishing our Christmas traditions. What are your favorite?

SMELLING | Various candles and my pumpkin roll wax melts daily! I need to stock up on some more candles and wax melts though. For some reason when it comes to candles and those types of things I never buy them for myself and always just wait until someone gifts me them. I think I might have to slip away to Bath & Body Works and buy some new candles to get me through this winter though!

APPRECIATING | Facebook Groups. I’m involved in a couple groups on Facebook that are made up of some of the most fantastic people. Two of the groups in particular are full of women that love God, but live real relatable lives. I love getting to glean from them as well as share my heart. I’m a bit of a homebody and with working from home I really don’t get many opportunities to head out and meet people. Thankfully social media has provided an awesome way to connect with others all over the world. (Note: I am appreciating a whole lot more than FB groups, I just thought this was a little unique so I decided to share)

ANTICIPATING | 2016 and the many new adventures it will take us on. Husband will be graduating this spring (I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS FINALLY HAPPENING) and that graduation will bring a handful of changes I’m sure. We will begin the job hunt that could take us out of Southern, WV or leave us here to deepen our roots. Job hunting, moving, and just overall big life changes. My worrier’s heart is already stressing out, but overall I am filled with such excitement and anticipation to see what God is going to do on this next adventure. It’s been amazing to see Him work every step of the way and I have faith He will continue to do so.

  1. ah, yes the hard decisions that come with married life about who/what/where to spend the holidays with! God will go with you for sure in steps ahead but it can sure be scary!


    • Thanks for stopping by Charis! It is definitely a stressful part of married life, but we are so thankful to have so much amazing family to spend the holidays with. I’m so thankful for God’s sovereignty as we enter the next phase of our life!


  2. I am so excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas!! My husband has always worked on both Holidays since he was in the marine corps, but for the first year ever he has both off while he goes through the police academy! I am so happy about that! Have a great Friday!


    • How exciting to get to celebrate with your husband this year! My husbands work place is open on the holidays and we wont know until the week before what he has off so it definitely makes planning a little difficult. We have to have plans for multiple different scenarios. Enjoy this special time!


  3. Wow, it really does sound like 2016 will be a big year for y’all! How exciting! Do you have any idea where y’all will be moving to?

    Thanks for linking up!


    • We really like Columbus or Cincinnati, Ohio but will be open to almost anything! We would like to stay within a 4 hour drive of our families, unless a dream situation arises. The unknown is exhilarating and terrifying!
