As this post is published, I am up in the air flying to the US for a two-and-a-half-week vacation. We're flying to Boston, where we are going spend four days wondering around the city and reminiscing (can't believe it's been two years since I moved back to Finland from Boston). Then we are driving to Fire Island, New York for a few days before we fly down to Florida. In Florida, we are going to be four days in Orlando, then drive down to Miami and go on a 3-day Bahamas Cruise (what!). Then we'll enjoy a couple beach days somewhere near Miami before flying back to Boston and from there back to Finland.
It has been rather a busy spring so though we have the 'where', we don't quite have the 'what' decided. Given that usually we spend time thinking about what we want to do and see on our vacations, this will be very different as we'll decide 'on the go'. Honestly, I am rather excited about this!
But for now, some favourites.
- Once we get back home, we are going to dig through the house to find our ice cream maker. Because this Vanilla Peanut Butter Chunk + Chocolate Crunch Ice Cream can't happen soon enough. It looks like the best thing ever.
- Lemon Curd Croissants. Paired with a latte, I think these would make my favourite breakfast ever.
- I just bought the first fresh strawberries of the season and honestly, I am so excited about getting to eat fresh berries once again. This Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta with Roasted Berries looks like a great way to use berries.
- What to Talk about When Sharing the Gospel with Your Kids. "Sharing the Gospel with our children is more of a journey than anything else. It’s not a one-time conversation, or an event we can plan or send them to. It is about pointing them to Jesus again and again and allowing the Holy Spirit to do the work in their hearts that only He can."
- These hand-dipped emerald green wooden spoons. I love pretty much everything in that shop, to be honest.
- I have been listening to The Weight of Glory (2012) by Heath McNease non-stop for the past few days. I can't stop.
