Fashion Friday: Edition it’s been a long week because it is so long

I don’t know about y’all but I feel like I’ve lived a thousand lives since last Friday. But at the same time, it’s hard to believe that we’re almost to October. I heard someone say that September, October, November and December are the “LMNOP” of the year and that feels like the truest thing.


Anyway, this will basically be me this weekend into between watching football and soccer.

“Sometimes the best families are the ones God builds using unexpected pieces of our hearts.”
Melanie Shankle

“Real motherhood is different. It's better and it's messier and it's more complicated. It will break your heart and make you laugh harder than you ever imagined. You find yourself alternating between feeling like your friends talked you into some sort of pyramid scheme so you could share in their misery and thinking this is the most fulfilling thing you've ever done in your life.”
Melanie Shankle, Sparkly Green Earrings: Catching the Light at Every Turn

“When I look in his eyes, I don’t see perfection. I don’t see a love story that would necessarily be something people would watch on a big screen and dream about. I see someone who will fight for me and protect me and love me in spite of all the ways I am still a wreck. I see home. Wherever he is. That’s my home.”
Melanie Shankle, The Antelope in the Living Room: The Real Story of Two People Sharing One Life

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now...Come further up, come further in!”
C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”
C.S. Lewis

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
C.S. Lewis

“The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.”
C.S. Lewis

“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
