What's Making Me Happy This Week (3)

This week's post on what's making me happy is going to be short and sweet, because I'm vacation posting.  Luke and I decided to make a quick trip to Arkansas to visit his mom, allow him to participate in a martial arts seminar, and allow me to see friends I haven't seen in three years.  So my first thing making me happy is this little trip down memory lane.

This morning I drove through my old neighborhood and took this somewhat creeper-ish picture of my old house.  Luke told me I shouldn't go ring the doorbell and ask if I could see my old bedroom, even if that happens in a Miranda Lambert song and works out fine for her. So I just drove by and lurked outside and missed living there.  We moved in when I was nine and stayed until my family moved back to Tennessee/Georgia when I was 23.  Lots of memories there.

The second thing making me happy is also Arkansas-related.  It's my beautiful friend Jody's blog, which is all about her life, her kids, homemaking, and growing in Christ.  She is amazingly transparent and inspiring.  And I actually get to see her today!  Check out her blog by clicking here: New Mercies by Jody H

And finally, unrelated to my Little Rock trip, is a blog I stumbled upon this weekend by Rachel Mueller.  This series, about the impact of the I Kissed Dating Goodbye culture on male/female interaction among my generation blew me out of the water.  Mueller and I had a lot in common in terms of what we were taught growing up, and I identified so strongly with this series.  Check it out by clicking below:

And that's what's making me happy this week!  What about you?

  1. I love Hot Springs. My grandparents lived there when I was growing up. So many good memories. It's such a beautiful area. I'm sad I never really got to explore Little Rock.
