taking a break

It just seems right to take a little blog break right now... There is a lot going on and sitting down at night writing just isn't in the card this week....

Until then, here's life:


  • Friday night a high school friend was involved in a car accident where one girl was killed. That girl happened to be celebrating my brother's birthday with him on Thursday. It has been very hard on everyone. My friend Barry is still in the hospital and has a long way to go mentally and physically, so if you'd say a prayer for healing, I would really appreciate it. The Quattlebaums and Comers especially need the prayers.


  • Work has really stepped up as I have gained responsibility this week. It's a good thing..... A great thing actually!! I like a challenge, but it just makes me more drained at the end of the day.
  • I'm currently on mile 32 of 50 for my #50milesseptember. I hit halfway on Sunday. I can do this!
  • My heart is also so heavy for the tragedy in DC and the flooding in Colorado. Why do bad things keep happening? Our world is just surrounded by terrible things lately! Luckily we are not in control!
  • Tyler's dad is driving down from PA to our farm to hunt this weekend and I'm really looking forward to seeing him again! I also have a wedding shower and baby shower on Sunday.
  • This commercial for Chipotle really upset me this week. I take farming/agriculture articles very seriously and I can honestly say Chipotle has lost my business. Here is a response to the video. Y'all farmers aren't out to "get" anyone and I promise you they care about the land and about their livestock.  This video makes it seem like they are only out to make money. Of course they want to make money but this is just a really unfair depiction of agriculture. If you ever have questions about farming or agriculture or organic or "natural" and my thoughts, please don't hesitate to ask. I love talking about it and learning more!
  • Sarge had his yearly checkup and passed with flying colors except for fleas! Those pesky suckers are driving us crazy! Our neighborhood is covered with them and he attracts him on his walks. Thank goodness for Advantix and Capstar!
  • Speaking of my neighborhood, we made the front page of the paper when we had 38 cars broken into on Monday... Joy! Luckily I park in the garage and Tyler is anal about locking his truck so we didn't lose anything but people are so disgusting and disappointing!
  • My mom has been in Paris for a week and is headed to Belgium next week. Who is jealous!?! This girl.... But super happy this is her time to travel with her girlfriends!
  • Next week begins season premiere week for my favorite shows!! Chicago Fire, SVU, Grey's Anatomy, Revenge... BRING.IT.ON!
  • And I have another prayer request if you are the praying kind. It's unspoken, but I promise you God knows what is on my heart about this. It's pretty big in our lives right now and a hump in our almost 6 months of marriage... But that's what marriage is for! Love and support!

That's all for now.... I'll be back soon! We just need to get through the next couple of busy days and weeks, but you know where to find me on social media! Thanks for your love, friends!!

xoxo

A break from all social media might be good for you.
I went through a terrible time when trying to get pregnant and after a failed IVF I gave up Facebook.
I couldn't believe just how much of a difference in made in my attitude.
Hang in there and we'll be praying for you.

It sounds like a break is the perfect thing for you! I'm so sorry to hear about your friend and know that I'm for them and for you and Ty! Things will be better, relax and enjoy what's really important!

Prayers to you, your family and friends. I hadn't seen that commercial and while i get the gist of it being about 'whole' foods i'm also a farmers daughter and I've never seen cows with a metal box around their neck. The one time I've had Chipotle i wasn't that impressed.

Anna Marsh said...

Hope everything is okay, Charlotte! I will be thinking about you!

You know I am a big believer in the power of prayer and I will pray for you. I didn't realize John's connection, but should have. I am so sorry and will get AJ to check on him.

Praying for you and Tyler! If you pray for him and he prays for you its a bond that can't be broken! Hope you get sometime to relax during the busy few weeks your going to have!

Amber said...

I am sad to see you taking a break, but I understand. Just know I'm sending all my prayers your way, friend! xo
