Almond cupcakes with buttercream icing

I'm sitting here, watching the steam rise in curls from my Sweet Eugene's mug, & all I can think about it how good God is. How every good & perfect thing comes from Him. How He lavishes His love on us... all the while we are often too distracted to notice. How He caused the pink flowers in my hanging plant to bloom, how the oak trees sway in the wind that He controls, how I am living in this house that He provided with my husband that He chose me for, & how it is all so good. Even how situations that seem bad or not so fun can reflect His goodness. I think if we really, really realized how much He loves us, how much our God & Creator longs for us, we could only stand in awe of Him. We are so undeserving. But only by Jesus' blood are we considered worthy, holy, redeemed.

Paige & Jason got married this weekend, & it was a beautiful wedding. I love seeing God unite two people that love Him & each other! I also got to spend time with good friends that I hadn't seen in a while, & that was a lot of fun. We got some pretty cute pictures out of the weekend (Jenna, I want to see yours!).

You know what's crazy? I also know of 8 other couples that got married this past Saturday. What was the deal with May 17th?? I mean, I personally think this coming weekend is the best weekend to get married... 3-day anniversary weekend ever year!! ;-)

Oh, & if the title of this post doesn't make you drool, well, you are wrong. I gained at least 5 pounds this weekend. But it all tasted sooooo good. :-)

That's it for now, my friends... next week I'll let you know all about our anniversary weekend!
