Balcony View

I haven't picked up my camera in a while. We have been so busy with planning our remodel ~ but today was rainy, pretty, and Phoenix and I took some time to put on a record and watched the birds fly from tree to tree while it rained.

Today's Soundtrack

This picture was taken about four years ago when we lived in Louisiana. Things were changing, and they never stopped. We have done, seen, and lived a lot since that first real move away from home. Life has gotten very stressful lately, and I'm just remembering the courage Jason and I had when this journey all began. Right now we are trying to start and complete renovating Jason's grandmother's house for us to move into before our lease is up here at the end of March. The house is in Scottsdale, Arizona so that would also require a move - while being pregnant. This pregnancy has been tough with also taking care of a toddler - one who is teething and not sleeping so I. am. so. tired. I made a soundtrack that is getting more through it all:

"Elastic Heart" by Sia
"Hard Times" by Paramore
"Mercy" by Shawn Mendes
"Headlines" by Drake
"Hurricane" by MS MR
"Goddess" by Banks
"Alive With The Glory Of Love" by Say Anything
"Runaway" by City and Colour

It is simple: you get through things. Music always helps. :)

McCormick Ranch Railroad Park

This was my first time at the McCormick Ran Railroad Park to see the Christmas lights! We went with my parents and my niece Leona. We had a really fun time. Phoenix kept saying "wow" over and over. :)

Las Noches de las Luminarias

My favorite holiday tradition ~ with my favorite person ever. Just us.

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! We spent the day with family, and chasing this little one around. He's growing up so fast! Our little Phoenix really enjoyed time with everyone. :)

Tub Planter

Cactus Jungle rocks my socks off. Seriously, this place has so many gems.
