These Pants...

Galatians 5:13
For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.

These pants sang out a sweet chorus to me when I saw them hanging on the thrift store rack the other day. They are glorious, with the perfect floral print and flowy wide legs. I'm in love! They will be perfect for the sweltering temps I'm sure are coming our way for summer. Eeep!

And this was my lunch this afternoon. I tried something different with my carrots, and I may just be a convert to this new way of cooking them. I cut them into rectangle shapes, sprinkled them with just a touch of brown sugar, and roasted them in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes on each side. They were warm and soft and just came out perfectly-who needs dessert with carrots cooked that way? Mmmmmm....:D

Today was another glorious day! I spent it doing odds and ends around the house, watching the trees bluster around through the window, and spending some time talking with my lovely mother on the phone!
When Sean got home we had a quick supper and then went for a lovely impromptu jog at our local park! We were planning on just taking a short walk, but I've been feeling so good these past few days that we ended up jogging a bit. I was able to run so much farther than usual! Now that I'm home I'm extremely sore of course...but it will be worth it. This is day two of running, let's see if I can keep up with it!
Buuuut, a delicious strawberry smoothie is calling my name...so if you'll excuse me ;)

Ooooh brown sugar and carrots?! I've never tried that, but it sounds delicious!

This is so cute! I love those wide-legged pants--they're so fun, and I adore how you brought out the yellow in them with those fun earrings!

Those pants are awesome! You get the look of a maxi skirt but the freedom of pants!
