"Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"... "It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine, and things pushing up and working under the earth", said Mary. Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden 🌿

Faith made most of the grandparents and us an Italian feast of pappardelle with walnut pesto, bruschetta, and spinach salad. 🇮🇹 It was kind of nice to have the night off of cooking, even though Faith's style of cooking is WAY different than mine.
agoldenafternoon : Thanks for the cookbook rec, Andrea! 😘 @gwynethmademedoit
christinedionese : That is so sweet- she must be happy to have prepared such a hearty dinner for you all! Growing up Italian it was always a great joy to cook with and for my grandparents and extended family- as a kid, seeing their happy faces enjoy their meal approvingly was always motivation to continue learning their kitchen secrets!
esthershokair : Beautiful.
sheilahas3loves : How awesome is that!! What a gem!
faithandcomposition : Sounds incredible!!!
dinexdesign : Does Faith want a work study date in LA?!
emmorrice : Different how? That sounds fab!

Zoo Day. How strange it still is to walk around with no stroller. Time is certainly marching on and this girl is getting ridiculously tall. Stop growing, girl! (Also, congrats to the winner of my #hopespoken ticket! See last picture. 👏)
hopespoken -
homeschool47 : Lovely...and that's what I think about my girls too. My oldest is as tall as me and we share clothes! Where did the time go?
oodalollee : Seriously she looks like she's 15!
joyfinderspath : How funny, those were my exact thoughts while posting a pic from the zoo of my long legged girl last week! It is happening so fast.

Such a gift to have a date all day yesterday with my husband to drink coffee, eat yummy food, hold hands, sit by the ocean, and unite our goals and dreams. It's sounds dreamy, but friends, this kind of day can also be hard, heavy, full of emotion, and feel like work. Ed and I are both intentional and motivated people so alignment can take great prayer, humility, and laying down of our personal dreams, if they go against our larger family goals. It is work but is SOOO worth it. Dating is imperative for us: for fun and maintaining our goals. This isn't a "Little House on the Prairie" world where goals are simple and our neighbors live miles away. Marriage, parenting, and running a house in 2015 is a completely different animal. We have found some success lately when Ed started using google calendar like me. His schedule is different every single week, so we can now make better "on the fly" scheduling decisions because we don't have to spend as much time doing weekly calendar meetings (blech). Have you guys found ways to succeed in your planning as couples? How often do you date?
blue_ladder : Love this and I totally agree (: My hubs and I share a google calendar as well and it has helped tons. We plan "meeting"dates where we go over budgets, home stuff and business, but we make it fun by finding a nice cafe to sit in or get a treat together. Plus getting out of the house helps us refocus so when we come back we are more productive and on the same page. It definitely can be hard work but it is rewarding to know you have a team mate in the busyness of life and that you both want to be going the same direction! Thanks for sharing and making me appreciate the same! (Btw your cocktails at the makers arcade on sat looked delish! I will have to try one next time!)
sharidiane : Love this. And tidepooling in San Diego is our favorite kind of date. We try to date a couple times a month. Our daughter goes to youth group so we've been using that night as our date night. It's been so good during this season of our lives. We needed it.
wifeysinger : i am desperate for dating my husband. we are in the midst of working on this! being more intentional, planning for each other. our circumstances don't lend well to dating or going away together. it's easy to get discouraged, but! we're searching out ways to make things happen and really date, no matter what. feel free to share your creative tips 😘😘
joannaposey : Miss you so much. Miss this view so much too.

If you want to hear about what water striders and Jesus have to do with each other, I wrote a new "simple moments" post about some of my recent reflections on life difficulties. There are also some pretty spring pictures from around our house, if that's more your style. 🌿 (Direct link in profile)
cloisteredaway : I do want to hear. Thanks for sharing!
bites.of.faith : @agoldenafternoon beautiful post and blog 💜 thank you
clean_eating_journal : Yes, I would! Look forward to reading it. Thank you.
fivechicksandafarmer : We learned about water striders this year. I'm definitely reading this.
