Reading / Cottage Hill Magazine. It is such a beautiful publication! The amazing photography, inspiring stories, and wonderful tips allow you to relax and get lost in the magazine. Their bio snippet sums up their mission and values in a nutshell: "Here, we value family, unconditional love and all of those old-fashioned traditions that honor the sacred wedding vows. We inspire forever marriages, celebrate elegant legacies and whole-heartedly believe in the promises of living a meaningful life."
Making / a hint box. My plan for it is to be used as a more for hinting at things we would love, but usually wouldn't ask for out loud, such as finding a handwritten note in a backpack or a certain meal for dinner. It can also be used for gift ideas for Christmas, birthdays, or any other time as well.
Pinning / entertaining ideas. I would love to have the chance to have friends over and make them food, decorate the place settings, and play great music while they mingle.
Anticipating / the weekend! I'm going home to go to the Minnesota State Fair with a bunch of my friends and can't be more excited about having a four-day weekend! Going to the State Fair is a tradition for most Minnesotans, and this is the first time in about three years that I'll be able to go again.
Loving / my Today & To-Do planner from Whitney English! I ordered it last May, but I'm finally getting around to using it consistently. It sure has helped me stay more focused and get things done. Definitely recommend it!
Collecting / vinyl records! Well, at least, I'm planning to start :) Caleb and I took a trip to Barnes & Noble last week and saw vinyls for sale. We've now decided that we're going to collect our favorite music on records so we can play them in a record player someday!
Praying / for many close friends in my life. They've shared with Caleb and I their struggles and wishes. I want them to be truly happy and seeing them long for that makes me hurt for them.
Writing / in my commonplace book. If you don't have one yet, you should definitely consider getting one. It's like paper Pinterest, but for thoughts, quotes, and inspirational tips.
Attempting / to remember the names of new people I meet. I'm really bad at this, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
Planning / date time! :) Every Friday afternoon is Date...Day? Saying "date night" sounds strange when we're actually doing it during the daytime. I have plans to share our previous dates as ideas for you on the blog every Friday – complete with printables and suggestions for having even more fun!
