fave friday and love + traditions


happy friday.  happy good friday, lovelies.

no, i’m not in australia, but i love this down under photo (there are so many more) because its written in the sky that the cross equals love.  simply put, that is what this weekend (good friday + easter) and the cross means to me.  LOVE.  a too good to be true kind of love that i can’t even come close to wrapping my mind around.  i’m spending the weekend, and my whole life, giving thanks for it, though.

speaking of easter and holidays,

do you have any easter traditions?

i love traditions but, honestly, haven’t started too many with my (not so) little family.  the other day i heard that traditions create safety, identity and trust.   and, i thought i’ve got to get creating.  creating comes in all forms, its not just on paper with paints, it can also happen on the hearts of the people we love.

so here is to crazy LOVE and trust filled traditions!  cheers!


01 / forget painting easter eggs.  just write on them.

02 / new episode on the fatherhood project … i can’t wait for more in this series.

03 /  i’m meeting up with coffee and ice cream more frequently these days.  thinking a double date may be in order.

04 /  i’m really loving this bedroom makeover.

05 /  a no complaining challenge.  could you do it?  in working on my greatFULLness, i’d like to try.

06 /   oil pulling is everywhere (at least online).  what say you?  i’ve tried it, but not to this extent.

07 /  and, some words on going through change for a slow long time.

    Christ’s love has had my heart torn wide open this week. I cry when I think about it. Indeed, the cross equals unmeasurable love. I hope you have a beautiful Easter.

    I am captivated by this idea of coffee poured over ice cream! I bought everything to make it a few months ago but then never got around to it. In the meantime I got to try affagato at a near by coffee shop. It was mint chocolate chip and one of the tastiest treats I’ve had in a while. If you have never had one, you must find a cute little coffee shop, hustle on over there and get one! :)
