I did it! I love these things. Hope Sarah feels better soon.

Green is my favorite color too! Flannel sheets are just heavenly; I can't wait for it to cool off a bit more so I can break mine out!

Have a great weekend and I hope Sarah feels better!

Hi Meredith!
It's been a while since I last visited your blog, but I really enjoyed catching up this afternoon! You could easily convince me to move to Colorado! I love your posts about real life and real thoughts and experiences in that life walking with Jesus. Michael and I still love you all and wish we could have gotten to know you better in Arkadelphia before we were all called away from there. We're loving Edmond, Oklahoma, and our precious little man Andrew. We post pics and videos of him for our family and friends at if you ever want to check it out. Keep writing!
Love, Kristi
