Birthday Boy

From Instagram: And a turkey leg for me and the boy. {At the NC State Fair!}

Well, it happened. Despite my best efforts to ignore or disallow it, Jackson turned 1 yesterday!!

We actually spent most of the day in the car, and then I taught my Essentials class in the afternoon, so I didn’t really even get to see his face or snuggle him until the evening. Then we celebrated by singing Happy Birthday and sticking a candle in a pear for him to gaze at in wonder while we all tried to show him how to blow it out — ha!

I’m so thankful for our little man, who is quite possibly the sweetest baby boy on the planet, and I can’t wait to see even more of his personality emerge in the next year!

What I’m reading: The Death of Bees by Lisa O’Donnell and Let’s All Be Brave by Annie F. Downs

What I’m cooking: chicken parmesan casserole, sloppy joes (in a crescent roll ring), upside down meatball casserole {um…should we call this the week of tomato sauce?!}

What I’m pinning: s’more cookie bars, s’mores cake, peanut butter cup s’mores {clearly I have a problem…}

What I’m thinking about:

On living with intention

On marriage and parenting

On a broader perspective
