Marching through Life

A few things that have happened in March:

I got a new car.

I love this car. When my car was stolen a couple of months ago, I decided I wanted an Acadia but most of them were out of our price range. We prayed God would turn this not-so-great situation into a great one. He did. One Friday morning, within 15 minutes of each other, I received news from the insurance company that we were getting twice the money we expected and that the owners of this car accepted our lower-than-they-wanted offer. Two lessons learned: there are some really great people in this world who love to bless others and God cares about the details of our life. 

I turned 31 and Lane planned an afternoon of surprises for me. 

He played and sang me a song.

He  gave me a money tree with 31 bills for a shopping spree. All the bills were tens and twenties in case you were feeling sorry for me thinking I only got $31.

He rewrote Proverbs 31 and read it to me. I will have to post his writing once I get a copy.

We had a shooting competition.

I won the pellet gun contest. He won the big gun contest. 

He brought a picnic but it was pretty windy, so we ended the evening with sushi and Baskin Robbins 31 flavors. I have an amazingly thoughtful/creative/hilarious husband. 

 I celebrated with a few friends over dinner.

Lane built me a chicken coop. 

I love this cute little thing. The color is "chickery chick." Perfect.

Hazel turned 5 months.

 Harper grew into even more of a little lady.
