We are making better food choices around here.  Well, actually that means I'm making better choices for my family.  I am the one who shops for food and cooks so I feel it is my responsibility to cook food that is beneficial to my family.

And me.

This week I started making green smoothies in the morning...again.  My iron levels are usually low, so drinking smoothies with spinach every day helps my energy levels and I tend to eat better throughout the day!

Earlier this week I wrote about God moving in our family. I feel like I should start sharing about this because maybe there is someone who is going through something similar.  

We get to spend time in D.C. this year. It is just a temporary thing and we will be coming back home when it is all done. 

For a while now I have been craving a simpler life and stronger relationships within our family.  That feeling has been so strong lately.  Like we are supposed to really scale back and live with less so we can find each other again. Can you imagine a better opportunity to do that?  

There are things we don't know yet... 

where we will live,
what we have to/want to bring with,
exactly how long we will be there....

Thank you, Jesus

I hope you all had a fantastic Easter with your family! We camped at the little farm (what we call my bother and sister-in-law's place) and had a blast.

The kids love feeding their chickens and playing in their yard! We even had our first annual Easter camp out. (I didn't make it the night in the tent because I got too cold....) Something about camping is so refreshing in a simplifying way. It was such a great weekend with our family. 

We love them all so much! 

I have been quiet lately because God is moving in our family. Things are changing and we are getting ready to start a new season.  Things are happening quickly....and we don't really know what it will look like. 

I'm not pregnant.
We're not moving...well, permanently anyway.

....But God is busy in our lives.

This past week has been amazing as far as feeling close to God and longing for this change. I'm really feeling pulled to a simpler lifestyle. I have been for a while and it's only getting stronger. I am also feeling that I am supposed to share as we move into this new season.  Not sure what it will look like, but I'm getting ready.

Thank you, Jesus.
