project 12 // 07


project 12 was birthed by Amanda at The Lady Okie & this looked like too much fun not to join in! you take a picture of you & your spouse at the beginning of each month, then you post a short recap of your month. at the end of the year, you have these 12 posts to look back on & remember all the little things that happened throughout your year!

i love this idea so much because this is why i blog! i love looking back on my life & remembering the details. if you missed prior months, you can find them here: January | February | March | April | May | June


this was one of those months where we didn't do a whole lot, but we were busy all the time. because of that, we basically spent any free time we had catching up on sleep. we didn't even have a chance to do our passport to fun date this month, so we are going to double up in August! that picture up there is the only picture we have together during the entire month! & you'll notice we only had one real date this month, that tells me that we obviously need more white space in our lives!

  1. ohh the bunny is so cute, I had a rabbit and he lived for 12 years... so rewarding, and they are smarter than most people think!!

  3. thank you friend! :)


    two grandparents in the hospital & being involved in a church plant leads to a busy month for sure! although life will always be busy, we are hoping for a little more down time in August :)
