I'm slowly easing back into the social media world. I'm actually surprised at how well I did! No Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, or blogging (even deleted the apps on my phone!). I did go on Pinterest a few times to get recipes, but I refrained from pinning anything new. It was difficult at first. I imagine it's a bit like giving up coffee cold-turkey, but I don't drink coffee so... It got easier over the week though. My goal was to "make my world smaller" by focusing on what was directly in front of me. My husband, my family, and that whispering God seems to be so fond of. It was very relaxing and I'm thinking social media and all that comes with it won't be as prevalent in my daily activities. Just one problem. Josh got use to taking my iPad to work and watching movies on his lunch break. Now he wants one too. Ha!
So many lovely things happened this week, too many to fit into one blog post. The one thing I've been itching to share all week though are the photos we got to take last Sunday. It was Evelyn's birthday so it was so nice to have something fun to do. I never got to take professional maternity pictures when
I was pregnant with her, so taking them for our adoption was really important for me. Taking them on her birthday just felt right. A nice way to remember her while still focusing on our future. And it was such an incredibly beautiful day! November in Southern California is amazing! Here are a few of our favorites, taken by our talented friend Becca. If you're in our area and would like some info about hiring her let me know. I posted the rest on our Facebook page. I'm so happy with how they turned out!
