New Morning Mercies

Happy Saturday! I wanted to share my favorite book purchase as of lately.

I had heard of New Morning Mercies from a friend, and then couldn't stop screen-shotting daily instagram photos from friends that were posting bits of pieces of it, so I decided to buy it myself.

It is a GREAT 365 day gospel-centered devotional. I've been through a few, and this one is by far my favorite! Sometimes I even peek ahead to the next day, but stop myself so I can look forward to reading it each day.

If you are looking for a new devotional, I highly highly recommend!!

Happy Sunday, friends!

Life Lately- October Edition

I've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of October, and the best month of the year is finally here!

Life lately has been full of...

1. Kombucha: Nothing much has changed here! I really love kombucha. Trader Joe's has lots of new flavors, and during the work day, I'll run out and pick one up to get out of the house, grab some fresh air, and peruse Trader Joe's fall items.

2. Central Market & Roomie Walks: 
We've been walking to central market or walking to grab coffee a few times a week, and it has been so good for my soul. Loving these (somewhat) cooler fall days and you can never go wrong with Central Market.

3. This pup! Makes my heart so happy. I'm thankful for a roommate who so willingly shares him! (and he is also the very best companion during the work day when I'm working from home by myself all day)

4. These 6 ingredient pumpkin muffins: 

This isn't the best of pictures, but these are so good! and only 6 healthy ingredients.

  • 1/2 cup of cashew butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana 
  • 1/3 cup of pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • + dark chocolate chips
  • +pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon
Blend all ingredients together, pour into muffins cups, and bake at 400 for 9 minutes. I've been having them for breakfast every morning after our coffee-walks. 

5. Wishful Thinking:
This fall weather has me CRAVING cool crisp weather and somewhere pretty. Currently daydreaming of cool hikes and lots of pretty leaves. Texas isn't quite there yet, but maybe a quick blink of fall will be here soon. 

6. Trader Joe's Fall Candles: 
Ah, I love these candles. Our home smells like Honey Crisp Apples and Vanilla Pumpkin, and I can't think of a better way to start October. These make me happy. 

7. Flannel! 

As I mentioned, it's still a little warm in Texas, but with the start of October 1st, it is now socially appropriate to bring/wear flannel everywhere. 

8. Lots of coffee and quiet mornings. 

My two favorite things! 

9. Also catching up with good friends.

Abby's one of my favorites as well! 

9. And lastly, this one again, because he just makes me smile: 

Happy fall, y'all!
