Currently 5.13 // Aaron’s Party + Jesus Calling + SUN

This week has been a whirlwind! Things got a little crazy at work and there were some wedding planning must-dos, so sadly there wasn’t much blog time in the mix. Hoping this doesn’t continue for long!

That being said, coming at ya with another Currently this week, but keeping it short and sweet!

Aaron's Party

Thank you Facebook memories for bringing this three year old gem to the top of my feed this morning. A few years ago, two friends and I fangirled at the front of a small Aaron Carter concert and got to snap a photo with him after. It was truly amazing and ridiculous, but you bet we sang every word to Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) as loud as we could. I know our eight year old selves were freaking out and thinking dreams really do come true.

{Reading // Jesus Calling}

I feel like I haven’t been able to sit down and read a book in quite awhile, but what I really do enjoy reading everyday is the daily devotional from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. These early morning bits as I head into work are always such good truths and spot on reminders. I use the app, but there is also a hardcover you can keep on your nightstand!


An excerpt that really spoke to me this week?? Embrace all circumstances that I allow in your life, trusting Me to bring good out of them. View problems as opportunities to rely more fully on Me.

Love this truth. When I feel stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed, I can rest easy knowing that God has carefully designed all things to ultimately help me grow and bring me closer to Him.


You can tell we’re getting closer and closer to the best time of year in Chicago! The sun has been out this week, and when the rain has stayed away, long walks and runs along the lake have been the best. Here Becca & Eric were trying to skip rocks, and I was trying to snap a cool photo without getting hit by all the bikes I was in the way of.


Bleh, this weekend looks questionable with the weather yet again…but hoping for this best! Just staying excited about all the movies in the park and street festivals to come.

Happy Friday, friends!
