I'll give our weekend recap and post my Lenten Photo Journey pictures below the corresponding day.
Friday February 15th - Missionaries in Europe
Andrew and I have been supporting a missionary couple in Europe for the last year or so. We went to hear the exciting update of their time there as well as the plans they have for the upcoming months and year. It was great to be able to reconnect!
Feb 15th - See
Saturday February 16th - A Friend's Baby Shower
Had a great day in Toronto celebrating the upcoming arrival of a new baby girl to our friends from university.
This is a very hypocritical picture since I do occasionally shop here...
Feb 16th - Injustice
Sunday February 17th - Visit from my Sister and B-I-L
My sister and her husband came up to Waterloo Saturday night. We went to church in the morning and then I attended another baby shower for a friend from church to shower blessings upon their family before their baby boy arrives.
After lunch my sister decided she would rather help me organize my craft room than go cross-country skiing so we spent the afternoon tidying and going to Michael's to pick up some shelves and baskets to put things in. I will do another post on the before/after and all the details.
My brother and his girlfriend came over for BBQ dinner and games :)
Feb 17th - Settle
Monday February 18th - Family Day & Real Estate
My sister and I spent the morning finishing the craft room. Andrew and my B-I-L helped us move some furniture around and took out the garbage :) I am so excited with how it looks! Now that the double bed is in the craft room (out of what will be our nursery) we're one step closer to being ready for the baby.
We're in the market to buy a second house as a rental property and so we went out for the first time looking at houses. Nothing really promising at this point, but it was fun to get out and see what's there.
I love what they say about the 40 day challenge of photo taking:
"You don't have to be a great photographer. This project is hopefully more about the practice of paying attention and being intentional, than it is being the best photographer [though we encourage you to get creative!]."
Here is a link to what you should take a photo of each day (if you want to participate). I'll type the inspiring word or phrase under each of my photos but likely won't do a ton of explanation. I should have started yesterday so today will have two photos.
Feb 13th - Who am I?
Feb 14th - Return
I'll also try to keep up with posting other things on weekdays too, but this will likely become difficult with all the school work! Looking forward to a great 40 days!
