Life in Grams

Life has been busy… and I wont lie, I had a rough week last week. Battling some cold sores in my mouth, due to biting my lip pretty bad… and to add fuel the fire, seasonal depression just kicks my butt. Anyone who gets this, can relate.

Below are a few grams though from the week(s). If you are on instagram feel free to follow me there @dreawood – I do try to post there daily.

Our first trip to the SC Museum. Got to love that Homeschools get in free :)

Planetarium time. Only ones here still. ? we feel like VIPs.
Pretty sure we were the only people there. :)

Pictures can paint perfection. Yet. Sometimes despite a perfect moment capture, there are often struggles some of us often bottle up and never share. Can I be real. This trip as amazing as it was and cool that it was empty and we were like the only people

A common thing here. Sink full.

The reality of my morning. And.... The dishwasher is full. ?

Bike rides, happen daily, unless its rainy :)

It's ok to have days you feel rocked. Questioning choices and battling emotions. No one is above this or immune from it. Sometimes we have to just press into where we are now. Be content with changes we may struggle with... And know that God ms sovereignt

I could not shut my mouth without shooting pain. NOT FUN. Toby kept me company…

Ending an evening with cat cuddles is comforting for some weird reason. ? I'm battling mouth ulcers too. Bit my mouth earlier in the week and now have two huge ones. Making it hard to shut my mouth. Not cool. It makes eating pretty miserable t

Date night celebrating 13 years of marriage. Thanks mom and dad for baby sitting. ?

We went suit shopping :)

A sweet lady at church gifted Travis with some money to buy a couple suits. So here we are buying suits. The lady doing the alterations is so cute. Had to snag a photo to share with the one who gifted him with this. Knew she'd love to see. And I now want

  1. Love the pics and thanks for sharing your beautiful life. Also, next time you get mouth sores, try alum… If you google it, it’s recommended for helping. I tried it last time I had really painful ones and it definitely worked. Have also used thieves but that time, only the alum worked. Hang in there! Love that you are focusing on the important things in life, though I do enjoy your blog and love your posts too!
