So glad you stopped by so we can catch up! It’s been awhile since I feel like I just casually posted what’s been happening behind the scenes of the blog. Honestly, I haven’t posted nearly as much as I’ve wanted to. Just when I think I’ll have time to write, something pops up! There’s just never enough time. Remember how I said time is my nemesis in this post – well, it really is!
This time of year seems to get a little bit more busy for us and I actually really welcome the warmer weather and more eventful schedule. I’m waking up and really wanting to start my day at like 4 am but I just know I will never make it through the day if I get up so early but I have so much I want to do.
So here are the LPB Happenings Lately
I shared on Instagram (@lovesimplybeauty) about a violent tragedy in our area. One of the officers wounded is a very close friend of ours and he remains in the hospital but the positive through any of this is that although there’s a long recovery road ahead, we are blessed to be able to continue to celebrate life with him.
We try to visit when we can and we’ve said many, many prayers for him, his wife, his kids and his entire family and the other families affected but honestly, we feel helpless. I can’t even begin to explain the emotional fatigue I’ve felt as the situation rumbles over and over in my head. I’m so sad for all the families whose lives are forever changed.
On a much happier note, Easter is approaching and we had a busy week at Eli’s preschool since next week is their spring break. He’s had fun getting into the spring spirit with an egg hunt and a hat parade. And we had a quick visit with my nephews and meeting the Easter bunny.
I also tried to capture some photos of Little E since he’s about to be 17 months old! *gasp* I can hardly stand to admit that he will be 1.5 years old at the end of April. He makes my heart sing with his silliness and smile. I tease that he’s definitely trouble wrapped up in a cute package.
He’s into everything all the time. He loves to climb, get into the trash can, find rocks and put everything in his mouth. When I say “no” he giggles and does it again!
