the utterly mundane || 7/52

8:52 AM

There simply are not many grand moments of life, and we surely don't live life in those moments.  No, we live in the utterly mundane.  We exist in the bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, and hallways of life.  This is where the character of our life is set.  This is where we live the life of faith."

Your daddy had the day off, and that coupled with the amazing 70 degree weather we were having seemed like the perfect opportunity to introduce you to one of our favorite things.  Picnics have been our favorite kind of date for several years now... our alltime favorite date before we were married was the day we spent a sunday afternoon at white rock lake, picnic-ing, throwing the baseball, and dreaming about life together.  We went back to that same lake a few months later for a picnic + kayaking date, your daddy planned a picnic for us on the day he asked me to marry him, and we went on several picnics while you were busy growing big in my tummy.  Needless to say your first picnic will be the first of many, and we loved getting to be out on a family date, flying a kite, playing washers, and laughing at how terribly terribly cute and funny you are.
