dear friends, I haven't forgotten about 'The Practices of Eating' series. I will resume next Monday, as this week is Spring Break for V and so far we are three for five days on being sick. I spent the last hour and half cleaning up puke on the floor, so I have that going for me and the notion of reflecting on eating hasn't been the highest on the list.
But, I would love to continue to share from this past month and would love to hear from you in the comments below of what you've been into. So shall we?
My Personal Favorite Writings:
1. Finding Grace in Low Milk Supply Is it possible that he’s breaking down the idols of what being a “good mama” means? Is it possible he is showing me his grace, in order to extend that same grace to another mama who has felt less than?
2. I Use to be a Fun Mom....those kids would go home to their parents and I to my no child home, just Ben. It was nice. I got paid to plan events, play, and discipline children. I got paid to train up staff and teach them as well. I got paid to tell stories every.single.day. I LOVED my job! Then, I became a mom.
3. Removing Shame from Eating (Practices of Eating) I became self-conscious when the summer before my fifth grade year my grandmother would call out in front of my cousins & brothers, "well, maybe if you got off your fat ass..."
My Favorite Bites:
Somehow I'm missing a picture I took and then I realized a trend...most of these were taken when I was on a date with Ben. It just so happened that we were able to get in three dates in the month of March alone, which testifies "what I'm into" for this whole edition. Considering I think our date record since Caprice has been born is three times from August to February.
My Favorite Video:
This video was sent to my from my friend Veronica, and I laughed hysterically. You need to watch to the very end.
My Favorite Shows:
We are still watching Friday Night Lights, and I cannot help but think Coach Taylor is the epitome coach of all time. So when I see him playing a different role I can't help but ask, "Where's Tammy? And why are in the Oval office?" Also still watching Once Upon a Time and would really like there to not be such length between episodes. We also began watching Duck Dynasty. Uncle Si kind of reminds me of my dad's quirkiness, in the best way possible.
On my bookshelf, book bag or partially reading:
To be honest, I am typically reading something, but rarely finish them in a studious time. I did finish Bread & Wine, which I loved and more about that soon (releases April 9th).
I'm reading Blessed are the Hungry by Peter J. Leithart, essays and it's meant to read slowly to take it in.
I have some other food memoirs on there, eating, food essays, hospitality books and such. I read like a charcuterie board. A little of this and a little of that. What can I say!
My Favorite Pics & Moments:
One of my favorite moments this past month was our family getaway to the Washington coast, where it was incredibly cold but so relaxing. We were able to see one of our dear college friends Hilary and baby girl, Olive. Ben met Olive for the first time and Hilary met Caprice for the first time.
March was a busy month for our family, but also calming with a little vacation in the middle. I'm looking forward to April and dreaming what may come and this mama of three thing is getting more manageable. But enough about me, what about you?
What have you been into this past month? Was it a busy month or a not so busy month? Favorite music, shows, movies, books, bites?
I'm linking up with Leigh at Hopeful Leigh.
