the present moment // quickity-quick and our friends the saints

1// Joining for quick-takes because it's been foreeeever and I kind of miss it! I also miss doing little Currently posts and keeping up with my Project 52 but only with more time and life and grace will I be able to get back into the swing of those little lovelies. Only time and life and grace. True story.

For now, onto quick-takes!

2// We had a good week this week. The boys and I started a homeschooling hybrid program and are falling more and more in love with it as time passes and we see fruits and virtue and beautiful community. It's a good feeling to feel peace - the kind of peace that makes you think that you are closer to His Will for you and your family than further away.

29/52 Bigfoot. 3. Jokester.
29/52 Linus. 2. Pirate.
The weeks leading up to this week were all good too, just filled with more adjustment for little Linus and I. The first week or two of adjustment aside - because transitions are always tough anyways - I have to say, I'm so proud of both of them and how they're doing! And, extra points of happy in that I'm really enjoying my position as well which is such a blessing!

God is good and we are thankful.

3// Life on Insta has looked like this:

4// I'm pregnant. Still. Thanks be to God! Precious P is growing sweetly and the boys are starting to get more excited and pretty cute about their little sibling. I have all the heart eyes for any time either of them share some love with my ever growing belly.

Was 22-weeks in this photo. ;)
Twenty-three weeks of growing belly and precious baby, you've been good to me. Praying you continue to be as sweet in all the weeks that are still to come!

5// Be right back!

6// Welp. Nothing says Hello Weekend like some vomit and fever.

Today was declared a movie day once my oldest started complaining of his tummy hurting while at a playdate (SO sorry, friend!). We made our way home q u i c k l y, they both napped, and the oldest woke with a low fever and more tummy aches.

Low and behold the youngest started twisting around and briefly mumbled trow uppp. I quickly grabbed the bowl his older brother had been carrying around and caught all. the. mess. Oye! This parenting-gig is not for the faint of hearts! Nor stomachs.Which I tend to have both so feel free to pray for us till my better and stronger half makes his way home to tend to his little men.

Angels and Saints, pray for our little family and for the health of our little ones!

7// Speaking of Saints...


I was on a podcast! Yup, quite the segue, huh?

Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I'd be one to do something like this, but the sweetest of sweets, Erin from Humble Handmaid, invited me to be a guest on her podcast The Right Heart Podcastand I'm so glad she did! She was so kind and easy to talk to and made the whole process so painless. My nerves were eased and she did such a great job guiding our conversation.

So click on the link above and hop on over and let me know your thoughts! And share how the saints have been a part of your faith journey in the comments. I always love knowing and hearing how these wonderful persons meet us all in our faith journey and in our daily lives!

Just because I heart this quote:

Okay, wrapping up! Quickity-quick, quick-takes on this lovely family evening. Pray yours is less sick-filled than ours!

And don't forget to head over to Kelly's for more quick-takes and fun!


  1. You look so great. I can't wait to listen to the podcast!

    1. Oh my gosh, the podcast was lovely! I enjoyed how you shared about applying the wisdom of the saints to our everyday motherhood. Well done!

  2. Loved the podcast and you look stunning. Sending prayers your way for healthy kiddos:)

  3. You need a break from germs!! Hoping that those boys (and you!) stay healthy the rest of your pregnancy!


Comment love makes me happy!
