I’ve posted about this before, but I am currently pretty hooked on The Happy Hour podcast with Jamie Ivey. It’s fun, encouraging, inspiring, and a bright spot in my week. The podcast is hosted by Jamie Ivey and she has a new girlfriend on each week to talk about life: the good, the bad, and everything in between. It will make you laugh, cry, and nod along. I’ve binge-listened up through 55 of the episodes and I’ve been listening week to week ever since. I’ve already listed today’s newly posted episode and it was so good! One of my favorites, I think. So…yeah, I’m hooked.
One of the questions that Jamie asks each of her guests is to tell her three things they’re loving right now. I love that question because it’s simple and it can be as serious or as silly as you want – a book, a relationship, an accessory, a TV show, anything! So that is what my list is going to be today – the three things I’m loving.
- I’m loving my new throw pillows. They’re really comfy and cute. They lightened up my dark couch and gave it a mini makeover. I think Bret was hesitant about the colors being too feminine, but once I set it all up, he loved it too.
- I’m loving my new Community Group. I wrote about community yesterday, but for real, this group is so awesome. It’s such a wonderful hodge-podge of different people that all live close to Carlsbad Village. We eat together, pray together, laugh together, sometimes cry together, and enjoy getting to know each other more. It was such a hard decision to leave our old Community Group this fall, but I can already see the plans God has in mind for us.
- I’m loving reading. This past year has been a big milestone for me as far as reading goes. I used to like reading in High School, but by the time I got to college, there was no joy in it. My brain was downloading too much info, textbooks were piling up, and I just stopped enjoying reading for fun. This year, all that has changed. I am reading as many books as I can, as fast as I can (I read really slowly). Reading actually has given me much rest and calm during this busy and stressful season of life…it’s a bit of an escape, I think. Also, I joined a book club that meets 4 times a year. All that to say, reading: two thumbs up! Here are 3 noteworthy books I really enjoyed in this last year:
What are 3 things you are loving, friends?!
