I haven’t done one of these “daybook” posts in a while and at first, I’ll be honest, I was like “who wants to read this stuff anyways?!” But, oh well. I think it’s a neat little thing to have on here once a week so I might keep up with it. What do you think? :)

it’s cloudy and dreary, as it usually is this time of year. to be honest, spring can come any time now :)

about how fast time is going (how is my baby 9 months old already?!) although some days seem extremely slow.

being able to stay home with beau and leland. super thankful.

to be more disciplined. i’ve been going to the gym a few days a week which has helped a ton with self discipline!

a project life album this year…. we’ll see how far i make it :) going to post about it soon.

to try my absolutely hardest to make dinner each night this week. (not the best cook…at all!)

the sound of our wind chimes outside as i sit in our quiet house. and also playing a little bit of music.

that the little ones take a nap today ;) and maybe i can take one too? ha! yeah, we’ll see.

has been being able to slow down this winter. i might complain sometimes about the cold, but it really is nice to sloooow down.

make those dinners every night ;) ! get a little more organized and start on business taxes (yippee)


yes! do more of these :) love that photo.

Yay! You’re doing Project Life this year?! It’s the BEST. This will be my 3rd year of doing it weekly for the entire family. The first album I did was solely for my oldest son’s first year of life. I just love how simple it is, but how creative you can be with it and that you get to document every single week, which means all the little things and the big things too. I hope you can stick with it. It’s definitely a bit hard to keep on top of it but at the end of the year it is SO worth it to go back and look over it.

A weekly daybook is a fun idea to commemorate the year. It will be fun for you to look back at in 2015. I might have to give that a try. :)

I love this picture! Your photography is lovely. (:

Hello Arielle! I’m a first time commenter, but have read your blog for some time now :)

You have SUCH adorable boys! LOVE their smiles :D
Currently listening to the song you linked with Shane & Shane and Phil Wickham – awesome song! These guys are great!
I really appreciate how you talk about the Lord on your blog :)

My husband and I have three small boys – 3, 2 and our youngest turned 1 yesterday, so I know what you mean about time flying! I can’t believe my baby’s already a year old!

I was curious – how are your boys with nap time – easy/difficult nappers? Do they tend to nap around certain times of the day?

We have one nap time after lunch and lay each boy down at different times so that they all end up in there at the same time for at least a little bit. Our 1 year old used to take 2 naps and when I noticed him staying up longer, I decided to try and join him in on his brothers’ nap times to get a longer break. They all share a room now so usually the baby goes to sleep first, then our middle son and then our oldest. It doesn’t take them long to fall asleep so within 30-45 minutes usually all of them are out. Something else we use that has been a HUGE blessing from the Lord has been “My Tot Clock” (mytotclock[dot]com). It’s a toddler clock that has really helped our boys go to sleep easier, stay in bed during nap time/bed time and helped them to learn when to get out of bed in the morning. I know nap times can be difficult, so I hope you find this encouraging! When they all nap together, I call it “The Hallelujah Hour” because of the silence haha. I need it so badly just to regroup and regain perspective.

Blessings! You are a beautiful woman of Christ!
