This past weekend felt like a wonderful, constant, giant, HOORAY!
On Saturday morning, Rebecca and I co-hosted a Detroit metro meetup, and we had such a great group of gals join us! :) It was wonderful to gather with so many, and would you believe we chatted for over three hours? As the snow fell outside, we sipped lattes and devoured pastries on the inside. We met at Atomic Coffee and talked about business and conferences and crafting and craft kits and moving across the country and babies and world-wide travel, definitely stop in to Atomic Coffee if you find yourself in the Royal Oak area :)
On Sunday morning, our family visited a new church. And we absolutely loooved the service, the message, the children’s ministry programs, and the kindness so genuinely outstretched to our family. Definitely can’t wait to go back. (Yes!)
A few other great things worth noting from the weekend: an amazing afternoon nap, good meals served around our family table, house projects completed, washing newborn baby bedding, organizing closets, opening a new bottle of shampoo & conditioner (wink), buying more chocolate, a freshly bathed pup, and decorating our second bathroom.
How about two more HOORAY moments? Zack starts a new job later this week, and on Saturday we’re celebrating Maxwell turning THREE!
How was your weekend? Are you reading anything great? Did anything happen that left you feeling inspired? Tell me about a HOORAY moment :)
That meetup looked SUPER fun, just come to Wisconsin now :) ;) You guys got SO much done this weekend, YAY! I am saying hooray to 40 degree weather this week and lots of free time with my kiddos because we don’t have a lot of plans this week :) Have a GREAT week!!
Our forecasted weather is supposed to be gorgeous all week long — I’m so happy! :) And I think I hear the birds singing?
How can he be 3?! God is blessing you with lots of good things going on in your life right now!
I attended the Maker’s Summit in Greenville, SC this weekend! It was ah-mazing! It was so incredible to be surrounded by so many like-minded creatives (my first experience with anything like it!). I came home so inspired to jump in feet first and grow my business.
Hi Krista!!!! That sounds so wonderful! I’d love to know more about that — is there a link or a blog you could share?
The Maker’s Collective sponsors the event. Here is a link with info. from this year’s conference. http://www.makerscollective.org/themakerssummit.
I can’t say enough good things about it! I was a total fan-girl of the speaker lineup. Forget celebrities – these people are my tribe! :)
Oh my WORD! What a dreamy event!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Was this your first time attending?
Yes, but not my last!
I got ONE new curtain made for our bedroom (yes, only one… but it’s a start!!! :-D ) & I got to go to the gym by MYSELF! Hubs watched the kids so I could go. Man, it felt so nice to get in the car by myself. :-D
Yes!!! And it was so quick to get in the car and drive off, wasn’t it? I love driving alone ;) in silence!
Looks like so much fun! I can’t believe those cute boys of ours are almost 3!
I know! I watch Max walk around and I’m literally fascinated with his growth and successes :) This parenthood thing is so fun!
Lots of little hoorays over here too… just family time, spending little moments playing with my 4yo. She’s my youngest and I’m hyper aware of how fast time is going by with her; so this weekend I tried to fit extra playtime in. And it was lovely! Also, daylight at 5:30 has me pretty thrilled! Looks like your meetup was fun – wish I lived closer! :)
Bummed I couldn’t make the meetup – took kids to Zehnders water park for the weekend!
I would love to do this again. I had such an awesome time just talking with creative babes.
Come to my house tomorrow (Sunday), we can hang out for a bit and Rebecca Smith will be there ;D
