currently . . .

I am linking up today with Jenna + Anne to share what's going on currently at A Beautiful Hope!

Currently . . .

loving  . . . my two days off during the middle of the week. I am so productive and have a chance to rest after super busy Mondays and Tuesdays at the clinic. 

reading . . . A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini and Jesus Among Other Gods by Ravi Zacharias

wishing . . . I was in Texas with my mister. I miss that guy so much! 

pinning . . . photos of Guernsey, an island in the British Channel near Normandy. I just finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and began to dream about visiting this beautiful little hideaway that is full of so much beauty and sad history of German Occipation during WWII. 

listening to . . . Pandora stations (Solo Piano Radio and Ray LaMontagne Radio have been constant the past few days) and my audiobook (A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini)

anticipating . . . my first 5K race at the end of the month! I am training for it but will be running with a few other people and slightly nervous that I will be slowing them down since I am a pretty slow runner.

eating . . . I ate delicious chicken and vegetable pho a few hours ago! It was really good, pho real! And my sweet neighbor just dropped by with some homemade mushroom brown rice risotto.

I took a walk with my mom last month and was in awe of this beautiful winter day


  1. Days off in the middle of the week are such a treat, aren't they? And I read the Guernsey book a few years ago and was so captivated by the setting - wouldn't it be an amazing place to visit? Thanks for linking up with us!

    1. Hi Anne! Yes, I definitely scoured Pinterest for photos of Guernsey while reading the book and hope to one day visit! And YES, days off in the middle of the week are a huge blessing!

  2. the picture is stunning!
    hopefully you'll get some time with the mister soon!

    1. Thanks so much, Amy! I'll be running a 5K with him at the end of the month! Woohoo!

  3. I've never tried pho, but I've wanted to...but I've been kind of nervous about it for some reason. I know, I'm weird. And I really like your pun, like pho real! :)


I love to hear your thoughts!
