Horseshoe Market

This weekend I ventured out with some gal-pals to Denver's Horseshoe Market. You never know what to expect when you arrive at a handmade/vintage market, but this one was amazing!

We met some wonderful vendors and found some great goodies. It was blazing hot, but that didn't stop us. It was so fun to have some girl time and chat it up with local artists.

One of our first finds was Larka Designs. Holly had some amazing headbands, brooches and necklaces. I made sure to snag this one before we left. It's laser cut wood. How cool is that?

Next we wandered through the booth for Sister Hipster. She had some amazing nursing covers, dish towels, hair clips, buntings and more. Oh my was it beautiful!

And finally, I got to meet Alissa from Three Leaves Toys! I was the winner of their very fist giveaway, and sine then we have been friends via Twitter. It is so fun to meet internet friends in real life and you could tell that Alissa is a wonderful gal. If you have a teething youngster or older, make sure to grab one of their beautiful wooden toys. Our munchkin loves hers!

If you are in the Denver/Boulder/front range area, you have got to make it to the next Horseshoe market on October 1st. I plan on doing a lot of Christmas shopping then. It was such a wonderful adventure!

Couch to 5k- week 1, day 2

Earlier this week I started the Couch to 5k running program. I'm not a runner, let alone very good at exercising, but this seems like a great way to start to enjoy it. I've always wanted to like running, but I never knew where to start.

So, I got these out of the closet.And charged up this bad boy.
Day two was better than day one, which makes the whole thing so much more enjoyable! When you can feel your body getting stronger it makes exercise so much more enjoyable. I got up early today and got to get out before the munchkin woke up. What an awesome way to start my day!

I'm currently on the hunt for the best running mix. What are your favorite songs to run to?

Munchkin Turns 1

Sorry for the insanely long blogging break. Hopefully that is over and done with!

Our little munchkin turned 1 on July 8th. In a matter of less than 2 years, we went from infertile to parents of a toddler.

Looking back on the past year, it's hard to deny that God takes care of us and provides. We have moved twice since Sophie was born. We have planted a new church in one of the most adverse cities in America. We're happy, healthy and striving after Christ's plan for us.

That doesn't mean it's been easy, though. We've messed up. We've hurt people we love, struggled financially, and sinned against each other, but thankfully we have been forgiven and are always covered by His grace.

And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. John 1:16

Happy Birthday Sophie!

Just a quick note...

Do you follow any of Lauren Landkford's writing? What about her man, Max? Check out both of them here. They have a lot to say and it's all worth reading.

Have a good Monday, friends :)

Blogging Block

I haven't written in the space in a long time. I've been struggling with how to use this little spot on the internet and what it's meant to be. After spending over a month trying to digest the pros and cons of the blog world, the internet and social media, I really have zero conclusions. So, for now, I'll use this spot to document life as a church planter's wife, how the church plant is evolving and tidbits of my munchkin (alright, probably more than just tidbits).

Here's the latest on the church plant-
The website is almost complete! After some major hard work, is live. Check it out. We've also outgrown our living room, which is awesome, but also overwhelming. Starting in June we get to meet in this cute little place-

God is doing amazing things in Boulder. It has been amazing to see how He has brought together our leadership team, humbled all of us and how He has taught us to live together in community.

And the little munchkin? She's awesome.

She's army crawling, standing up on her own and eating everything in sight. Everyday she surprises me and everyday she makes me giggle. I don't think life gets much better than this :)

Momma Monday

It's Monday, but I've got a million things to pack to get ready to head off to... Just know that we've had a good week as a momma and daughter pair. She makes me smile more and more everyday.

Here's to more Momma Monday posts in the future, when I've settled into CO!

New Tunes

Have you heard of Rend Collective? I hadn't either, until I found them on this blog.

Check out this music video. The lyrics are great, it's happy, and sums up my excitement to start a new part of our journey as a family and the Church.

Don't you just want to hang out with them all day?

Happy Sunday :)
