Shaken by Tim Tebow | Book Review

When you hear the name Tim Tebow do you think of a two-time national champion, Heisman Trophy winner, and first round NFL draft pick? Or do you think of a hard working man who is living his life daily for the Lord with a charismatic and outspoken faith?

Tim Tebow. Some know him as a Florida Gator Heisman Trophy Winner and 2-time National Champion. Others recognize the name thanks to the 2011 “#tebowing” craze, where one takes a knee in a praying position and posts it online.  Still others recognize him as an outspoken Christian with questionable athletic abilities, and more recently some recognize him as an aspiring baseball professional.  Personally, I’ve always seen Tebow as an athlete who likes competing, but loves the Lord. Given his athletic talents, he has been given an incredible platform in the public eye and uses it to glorify God with every step and through every season of his life.

Our Month in 9 Squares – May 2017

Dear May 2017,

I guess time flies when you’re having fun! May, where did you go!?…  You brought the end of preschool and with it an excited heart that awaits the start of kindergarten… que mommy tears! We spent all month in swim lessons, so we are now ready for summer and official pool season!

We were blessed with family in town and some long overdue family fun!  And of course, who can forget Mother’s Day… I was spoiled by my loves.  I even got to break away for a mini staycation with my BFF for some much needed kid-free girl time, whoop-whoop!  As I look back on all of the fun times and memories that were made, I’m realizing that May 2017 completely exceeded my expectations!

June… You have some big shoes to fill, so let’s bring on the SUMMER fun!… and go easy on us with those triple digit temperatures!  #arizonaliving #thestruggleisreal

Our Month In 9 Squares – April 2017

Dear April 2017, 

April, you were such a great month, I struggled to pick only nine photos to showcase all of our adventures.  You are always my favorite month not only because of the fabulous weather, or because you are my birthday month, but because of Easter.  Holidays are so special and memorable now that we share them with two littles.

We also had so much fun traveling and enjoying the great outdoors on a Sedona getaway. As you can see from our photos, it will be hard to beat this month!

May… Bring on new adventures and more memories, we are ready for you!!

Our Month In 9 Squares – March 2017

Dear March 2017, 

What a fun month! March 2017… You were a month filled with fabulous weather, outdoor activities, lots of bubbles and wonderful memory-filled family time.  It was so much fun celebrating and party planning for my sweet little girl’s second birthday and of course we loved all of the fun that St.Patty’s, Spring Training and March Madness brought to the month.  With the welcoming of spring, we started working on spring cleaning and home projects, which always brings me so much joy!

As I gladly welcome April, I am ready for a month filled with more family adventures, continuous beautiful temps and of course my BIRTHDAY!  CHEERS to April!!!

Family, Our Month in 9 Squares

Our Month In 9 Squares – January 2017

Dear January, 

Thank you for bringing a month of change! I always look forward to creating new goals, spending time planning and dreaming about the future and wishing for what is to come with the new year.  2017 is going to be a fabulous year!

We started the month off with a couples-only snowy vacation to reconnect and kick 2017 off on the right foot, and then spent the rest of the month focusing in on our family. My hope for the month was simplicity so that is just what I did; simplified, organized, relaxed and recouped from a busy 2016.

You were a dreamy month January, but now I am ready for all the LOVE that February brings!
