7 Quick Takes vol. 4

Linking up with Kelly!

It’s been too long since my last Quick Takes post. Get ready for a truly scattered collection of quick-takes.

{one} I had a revelation a few days ago! It’s not actually profound, it’s more of a “duh” moment.

The mornings are for the kids!

As in, unless I get up before them, I do not try to fit in any personal prayer time (apart from a morning offering, which I usually pray before getting out of bed.), reading time, coffee enjoyment time, writing time, social media time, email time — you get the idea — until afternoon quiet time.

Fahlman Family Quotables vol. 1

This is a post chock-full of the funny (and sweet) things my kids have said recently. Naturally I think my children are hilarious, but maybe they’re not-so-much to anyone else. I’m also probably loosing my perspective on what actually counts as laugh-out-loud-able material since my days are spent with three children, 3yrs old and under… but hey — maybe some of these will tickle your funny bone like they tickled mine. 🙂
