We headed south this weekend for two reasons, first because Steve preached at Redeemer Church in La Mirada {my sister and her family attend there, and also some of our good friends} and second to visit David’s pulomonologist at UCLA.

My sister’s home is so beautiful–full of creative touches. I woke up to cinnamon rolls and hot coffee. Plus we were able to sneak away for a few hours and thrift some treasures and get a foot massage. So yeah, it was pretty much perfect.

Steve preached on faith and doubt. It was so, so good. If you want to listen to the sermon, you can find it here {the title is living faith}

We had lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory. Steve and I had our wedding rehearsal dinner here–so it’s special to me. Plus I love the food!

Then the four of us headed to Westwood to stay the night so we wouldn’t have to fight the LA traffic. The evening started with silliness, then moved on to pizza and ended with cuddles. It wasn’t meant to be a particularly special evening, but it turned out to be so much fun!

David’s visit with the pulmonologist went great! He has been fighting off colds without antibiotics and his sinuses look great. This is a huge improvement from our last visit where there were xrays and a conversation about possible surgery. What a relief!

Today it’s back to school for the boys and I am looking forward to getting back into the workshop again. I’ve loved our slow mornings and time together, so I feel a little sad that school is starting up again. But there is so much to do, I hardly have time to let it get me down! We are busy planning and creating. I love it.

I’m off to sip a bit more coffee and then I’l tackle my to-do list. What’s on your to-do list today?
