I forgot to mention last post that my brother is ENGAGED!! Nathan is marrying Caitlin after dating for a trillion years, and she is already my sister, so needless to say the wedding is going to be absolutely beautiful. It will be in June (perfect month) and I'm a bridesmaid! First time! I am so excited and happy for them. Caitlin put me in charge of finding the wedding cake design. (Ideal job for me). Isn't this cake fun with its confetti sprinkles? Not quite elegant enough for a wedding, but it is so cute regardless.

This week has been busy in every aspect of the word, and this weekend will be equally so. Today has been wonderful, though, and in midst of this busyness I have made sure to take time out to breathe. I had a great workout this morning and since my craving for coffee would not cease, I treated myself to an Americano. The great thing about Starbucks is that they often mess up your order. This then means that you get a free drink. That happened to me today; good choice, Alyssa.

I am heading home tonight for just a day, because my amazing grandparents are coming over tomorrow for lunch. Both my grandma and my grandpa mean so much to me. Both of them have battled some pretty serious health scares this last year, (and they are in fantastic shape for their age, so it was surprising for the whole family) but they have come out stronger than ever. I love them, I love them, I love them. Even though I have one more huge midterm to conquer, a take-home test that I just remembered right now, (aah!) a theory project, and a Portland mission trip support letter to write...phew...nothing can steal my time more than an afternoon with my family. 

Jesus has been so good to me these last few days. I am finding so much contentment in His will and His timing, and every day I spend in the Word and journaling is a day that He continues to take care of my heart. "Be still and know that I am God," is a verse that is on repeat within me. I have the joy of my salvation and the peace that He is above all else. He is more than enough.

Happy weekend, everyone. Enjoy this sunshine, and don't forget to set your clocks back tonight! Boo for one less hour of sleep, but yay for longer days of light. :) Spring is here!
