Mountain Living

Here's Part 2 of what Mountain Living has looked like as of late...

Our neighbor is starting a custom antler furniture business. Here's the hubs admiring one of the latest finds for his business. He's so handsome I could stare at him all day...

Idaho farmlands...

Maverick keeping me company inside on one of the last snow days this spring... hopefully

Feeling large and in charge... 33.5 weeks pregnant here (I'm 35 now)

Taking in God's glorious creation and reflecting on Matthew 5...

Our gospel community/ small group took a little retreat up in Idaho. Here I'm standing on the back deck taking in the view...

The hubs went on a kick of juicing watermelon, strawberries, and cucumber for a couple weeks... I took full advantage of every delicious, refreshing sip

Idaho sunsets...

Enjoying a morning off at home with the hubs and my new favorite drink: half Perrier/ half OJ

Watching Danny chase Maverick around our yard after church one Sunday. I love how much energy he has... we're going to get good use out of that once our little girl is here :)

This moose kept leaving and coming back to our yard for half a day... Maverick was not happy that she was taking up his valuable time outside

And taking in the sunset with my favorite guy off a random country road

To the Weekend!

Wow this week went by fast. And with a whole new slew of activities, projects,and events- it's not slowing down yet. Thankfully, I've got a slightly slower day today so after work I can catch up on some chores before everything starts back up again tomorrow. I also have a business pow wow meeting with my close friend over at Leaf & Pen later on that I know will get me motivated and inspired to tackle some new ideas I've had twirling through my brain (my ideas don't run... they twirl).

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and an inspiring weekend! And let's meet back here on Monday-  I've got some delicious recipes I'm excited to post about.

Happy Friday friends!

Mountain Living

Gosh it's been such a long time since I've done a Mountain Living post that I'm going to have to break it up into parts. So here we go, Part 1 of what life around the cabin has looked like over the past month or so...

The hubs and I took off one evening to explore outside of town...

Gazing at the reflection of clouds in ice cold puddles...

We picked one gorgeous night to go out...

Fishing with my man...

Took a little trip to Montana to see my brother

Lone Peak

Driving along the Gallitan River on my way to Bozeman...

Catching up with elk migrating back to Yellowstone

Driving home from Idaho...

Taking in the gorgeous sunset on one of our drives home...

Been spending my quiet time each morning reading through 2 Kings & 2 Chronicles

Finally started to see some warmer weather around here too. It's gone back and forth since then, but any time the sun is out- we've been taking full advantage...

And me at 28 weeks...

To the Weekend!

Ahhhhhh...  Friday. This week has been so busy with work (something to which I am incredibly grateful for). So I of course had to take a break from blogging again- my first priority with work is creating and shipping orders out on time. 

Thankfully, the weather has complimented my heavy workload- lots of rainy, gloomy days that keep me wanting to stay inside. My work week will continue on through tomorrow- but I'm hoping to get some time in for some new projects as well. I'll be needing to do a serious inspection of my supplies and inventory before our little girl gets here- so I'll probably be having a massive sale early next month as well to make some room.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend no- matter what the weather is and what you'll be doing!
