bluebonnets + easter ❀

If you follow me on Instagram, you've already been spammed with a lot of these bluebonnet photos--and I'm sorry about that, but also not because this really was THE. BEST. DAY. EVER.

 I hope to remember it forever and ever--and pictures are one way to make that happen. It was one of those days, when you're humbled and reminded of what is really important in life--where your priorities should be. 
My husband and I are are both firm believers that experience trumps material things. Don't get me wrong, we like our stuff--and sometimes it's hard to not have things that we want--but then days like these happen...
and none of it seems to matter anymore.
 This is what it's all about.
These people right here are my eternity, and the experiences I make with them are what we're going to remember and are going to shape us as individuals and as a family.
 I love these people with everything I've got--and feel so blessed to be a wife and mama to them.

And if you know me personally--you know that I can't and won't stop talking about my love for Texas--and this time of year is a huge part of that. 
The weather is heavenly, the humidity has yet to hit in full-force, and these bluebonnets start spreading over hill-country--it's like a dream come true.

Pair the bluebonnets with this Texas babe, and it really is perfection! 


 Rob and I hope to be able to stay in Texas forever and raise our kids here.
It's such a perfect place to have a family.
And maybe one day build a little ranch out in hill-country where we can retire, buy some chickens and grow old...
yep, that's the dreammmmm.
Gah, I love it!

When I think of my love for these two, I always think of one of my favorite quotes from Gilead
(one of my all-time favorite reads)
“I’m writing this in part to tell you that if you ever wonder what you’ve done in your life, and everyone does wonder sooner or later, you have been God’s grace to me, a miracle, something more than a miracle."
And I had to throw in a couple Easter sunday pictures of course!
Sweet Mila was a little cranky all day--mainly because she had been bitten right in between the eyes by a nasty spider. It was all swollen and itchy. Poor thing.

It was a lovely Easter! 
Church followed by dinner and an Easter egg hunt with the family--doesn't get better than that!
