Football & Fall

I am not a football person. I went to a small, Christian high school with no football team. I have never really been around it all that much.  In college, I did attend a handful of games. That is the extent of my exposure.  I have just never been that into it, and honestly I don’t understand it. I don’t know the rules or the terminology.  We go to parties and cookouts for games– I take a book. It’s fun to socialize, hang out, and snack together. No doubt about it though, there always comes a time when everyone is super into the game and that is when I am just sitting in a corner somewhere bored out of my mind or playing on my phone!

Otis has been involved with the football team at our local high school for the past five years. I have never been able to go to any games with him because of my work schedule.

This year I have been to more football games than my whole life. Seriously. We have been in the stands supporting him and the team. I even found myself clapping last time. Let me rephrase that- clapping as soon as something happened, not clapping once the rest of the crowd starts clapping. I guess I am catching on. 😁

I am so happy for this season of my life!


On another note, hello to fall!! This is my favorite season ever! I love when the weather is slightly cooler and we can pull out the scarves and boots! Even though it is still pretty hot here, we started putting up a few decorations. We made these cute little candles to use as the center piece on our table.


I bought the three candles from Walmart. I bought a pack of leaves and the twine from the dollar tree. It made for a very easy and inexpensive fall addition!


I cannot wait for our weather to get the memo and adjust to Fall as well! 🍂🍁

Hello to anyone taking time form their busy lives to read my blog. I am a wife to an amazing man, who I am blessed to serve alongside in youth ministry. I am mommy to two amazing kids who I am privileged to be able to homeschool. This blog is out of my comfort zone and certainly me trying to be obedient to Christ. I love Him more than I care about my own comfort or awkwardness. Hopefully, this blog is honest, real, and transparent. I'm not a big fan of fake. The Lord is using it to bring growth to me...and I pray that in the process something about my crazy beautiful life might also encourage others.
