Twins Game - Girls Night

My friend Kristen works for the Pohlads and she was able to get tickets to the Brewer/Twins' game last night. There was four of us ladies that went. Let me tell you I forgot how fun it is to just unwind, sit back and enjoy the company of girlfriends. Chit Chatting about life, kids, boys ;), and cheering for the Hometown team (or possibly the Brewers' at one point, haha, sorry Kristen I had to!) The Twins ended up w/ a fantastic game and a win for the books! The final score was 6-4 .

E,mma, Kristen, and I
 Even though we don't know each other super well yet, I'm so thankful for these ladies! Kristen & I met in the most random way. I had posted something on Instagram and she commented on it. (who says hastags aren't useful, if I hadn't posted #projectlife & #cultivateagoodlifeandrecordit chances are Kristen would've never seen my instgram post ;) .... ) This was only to find that the two of us both enjoy Project Life, go to the same Church and live w/ in 20-30 minutes of each other! It's been so fun getting to know each other from our Proj. Life nights and also random chats. Looking forward to our girls weekend at the Lake to do Project Life and other random crafts.

Love my boys! I could sit in this stadium for hours on end & watch the Twins play
Oh ya' know just another selfie! ha- ha , of the opposite view.

Thanks Girls for a fun night, even if the four of us were 1/2 asleep on the light rail back to the MOA (either we're getting old  or we are just always on the go so get worn out ... I vote the second even though it may or may not be true :) ) ... I vote we do another girls night soon!

If there is one word to describe what I'm learning right now is peace. To find peace in ALL circumstances. To find peace in the mundane, the large, the small and all relationships. Peace. No more ways to describe it than just that. I'm thankful for a few leaders in my life today who I was able to talk with and be challenged by.  How do you find peace? How do you find joy in the midst of questions?

If you know me, you know how big family is to me. I am extremely close to my Mom's side (The Jackson's) and cherish each and every moment made with all of my family members, though it goes beyond that. My heart is to do life together, sit around the table and catch up with each other, dive in to the truth of who we are and our dreams, goals, aspirations, etc. I have recently stumbled across a blog called; "IF: Table" - words don't even do justice of how excited I am about this! You can find details here and here. But I am taking it a step farther and starting "IF:Table" here at my apartment (email me, if you need the address) with hopes of it growing ... so I'm inviting you to join me! Yes, YOU. I'm hosting a early dinner on Sunday July 13th at 430pm. Please won't you pull a chair up to the table with me and enjoy a evening of girl talk, laughter, and gaining insight from other ladies. No need to bring anything but yourself, your smile, and maybe a journal and camera if you want to record things from the night. So excited to have YOU join me!

First Post

I am creating this blog to document the life that I am creating, picking, and living. Life is meant to be celebrated and I figure there's not a better way to document than a blog ... I will post every day life, challenges, desires, dreams, goals, inspiration, DIY, etc ... I'm excited to share a part of me with you! Enjoy your evening!
