This girl. I praise God for her sweet little life every morning. I am thankful that she has now decided she likes to sleep at night and has been sleeping through the night for the past several weeks. She loves people especially her daddy.  She loves to nap. She loves to play and talk and chew everything. She has recently started to laugh which is so sweet. She loves to sit up and look around but has no interest in rolling over or being on her tummy in general. She is a super happy, super easy going baby and she is such a blessing to us! We continue to pray that God would help us to entrust her life to Him, that He would continue to grow and sustain her and that one day she would experience new life in Christ!

Thrifty

Recently, I have really enjoyed popping into different thrift stores, making small purchases and essentially figuring out how to make something beautiful out of nothing.  Below I reused an old flower vase given to us to make a terrarium with the addition of some inexpensive succulents.

I bought some small succulents from Lowes, lined the bottom with rocks and filled it up with some cactus/citrus soil.  I am notorious for killing all things green, whether by over watering or neglecting but this guy has held up nicely for almost a month now!

Another cheap find from the thrift store was this tray at .50 cents.

Although, not terrible, I figured with the addition of some pretty fabric and burlap this guy would make a great centerpiece for our coffee table.

And the finished project-

 Also, if you don’t have a tray in mind, you could easily do this with an aluminum baking sheet!
