The last few weeks I have been doing a "Currently" post.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.  I'm linking up with Becky from Choose Happy.
Thinking about...How crazy busy my life has been.  Pretty sure with school aged children, and young children it won't slow down for awhile.  But to remember the little things....

Like playing with "Grandma's toys", seeing her eyes sparkle when we walked in,  their eyes sparkle back because they were able to make Grandma's birthday special in their own way.
Craving...MILK CHOCOLATE!!!!!  This month, I have been doing a candida detox using doTERRA products.  It has been an interesting journey.  A year or so ago, I stopped eating gluten, so that aspect of the cleanse wasn't bad.  It was the "no dairy", "no sugar" part, (most difficult of all) chocolate.  Sadly, I think this is a life long change for me. My body seems to be happier (minus the freezing all the time!)  Maybe I shouldn't live in the Wisconsin tundra!

Wishing...Unlimited free time with the kids.  Yesterday we took them skating. But with baby girl, I wasn't able to put skates on, and actually play hockey with the others.  


Laughing...This little guy, he has been "putting on shows", "washing dishes", and just being a silly silly little boy!!!!

Thankful for…Beautiful sunrises and sunsets this last week.  
Pictures just don't do them any justice.  


  1. Both of my kids are school aged (K and 3rd) and I feel like it just gets busier and busier! Those photos of the snow and sunrises/sunsets are so beautiful!

    1. That is what I am worried about, already I feel like my life is crazy busy and the last 2 aren't even in school yet! Fresh snow always makes things more beautiful.

  2. That is a beautiful sunrise! And ice hockey looks like fun!

    1. Ice hockey is fun. I think next time, I will see if I can find someone to watch the youngest so I can play too!

  3. I don't think I could live without chocolate!! you are brave!!!
    Love your ice skating photos, what a fun family afternoon.
    GORGEOUS Sunset pics Rachel!!!

    Thanks for joining me in my Currently series & Happy Friday!!
