Surprise Me God Day 2: October 20, 2014.
Realized today how often I’m stuck in my own little world, head down, living in the world that my phone brings me, when I could be looking up and living in the world around me.
When we look up we get perfect little dog kisses, intentional conversations and incredible sunsets.
Thank you God for the reminder to keep my head up, breath in the world around me and just be.

Surprise Me God Day 1: Sunday October 19, 2014.

Beautiful Fall day starting in McGregor with mama + papa and ending in Minneapolis with an impromptu walk + little high school reunion. Today was a good day.

Celebrating today.
Celebrating by learning new things in the “shop” with papa, spending time with people I love, breathing in the fresh air of Fall and remembering that God’s an incredible author of beautiful stories.

It only took 6 years but “bike to work” can finally be checked off my bucket list. Thank you Abby for being the perfect bike tour guide πŸ˜ŽπŸš²πŸ‘―

YWCA women’s triathlon + a twins game. Such a fun day! So proud of Diane for an incredible run and so thankful for the best #1 fan and mama in the world. Loved today. A lot. And love that more triathlons are in the future!

A weekend filled with some really amazing people. I love summer

There is such a thing as the perfect pair of shoes.

A weekend of all things “MN Adventures.” Love when sunshine comes and stays with us for a little while in Minneapolis.

Mama and papa are back in Minnesota and I couldn’t be more excited.
Love having mama and papa back in town.
Here’s to a summer of long weekends and pontoon rides in McGregor!

This girl is crazy talented.
Jonathan ordered a Bulldog NE print (where we had our first date) from Elizabeth, an incredible artist + designer:

I have a feeling one day there will be a home filled with Elizabeth Grube prints.

Might be a great little gift for someone fabulous :)

My day started with Shaun White and ended with Jacob and Chris.

Today was a great day.

Love one another. Romans 13:8
