Have you ever walked through a season littered with lessons? I'm there. right now. Sometimes the lessons are delightful and I relish the new things I'm learning and other times I'd really rather look away than deal with the reality that is my ugly heart. I've been deliberately crawling through this winter headed into what will inevitably become spring and I anxiously await for the new growth to show up on the trees and in my life.
Along the way I've been learning:
Many of the lessons I've been learning have correlated perfectly to the reading that I've been doing as I work my way through Ann Voskamp's book, one thousand gifts. I'm so thankful for her insights and her honesty...If you have some time for cultivating new growth in your life I highly recommend her book.

Settling back into a regular routine has been delightful. There's just something good about being back in your own bed and being able to make your own breakfast. I can only endure continental 'eggs' for so many days.

My beloved Mountaineers couldn't pull out the win over Marquette in the Big East conference tournament. It was a heart breaker.

Even though my team is one and done....I'm sure not. I started knitting dishcloths at the beginning of the tournament and I've been knocking them off almost as quickly as the Mountaineers left the big Apple. Three down and two more rounds of action to go....

Teacher pencil pouches:
I lined them with some fun pops of color. I plan on giving these with some Ticonderoga pencils (my favorite) and a gift card for the teachers in my kids lives.Feather and Fan dishcloth
