Hello friends! It’s a brand new week, full of beauty to be found. We are down in Los Angeles seeing an eye surgeon at UCLA today. We had a great weekend with family and friends–so fun. I’m hoping we can get some answers about why David’s eyelids have been irritated and inflamed over the last couple months.

***Hello Monday is where I greet the new week with an open heart and a fresh perspective. It’s a new beginning–and there’s so much to be thankful for! Join me by leaving your own hellos in the comments section or linking up a hello monday post there!***
