Pottery painting & stuff.

I’m so glad that everyday is a NEW day!  I had a crummy day yesterday.  Nothing seemed to go right…..and i felt on edge all day.  It was terrible.  I know everyday can’t be perfect. TODAY is a beautiful day and there are soooooo many reasons to rejoice and be happy!  It truly would be a shame to hang on to anything that bothered you yesterday or not allow yourself to be happy today. 

So here is to TODAY!  :o) 

*I get to go to a step aerobics class with a friend

*Grill yummy kabobs tonight with my hubby

*Be healthy & active

*Continue in my Bible study tonight…..i’m reading Esther

*Do my best at my job….and hopefully make someone smile today

*Get some cuddle time in with Miss Maddie before she gets her hair cut Saturday :)

I had mentioned earlier this week that me and husband painted pottery on our anniversary! :)  It was such fun.  I had gone many times…..but Tim had never had the pleasure.  ha!  However, he told me he loved it and wants to go again!  He has always had an artistic side to him.

We picked out our pieces.  Tim chose the ripple coffee mug and I went with the travel mug……it was so hard to choose just one thing! haha!

Next you select your paint colors and your tools…… this is so hard for someone as indecisive as me! :)

Then you get to work!  I was working on a cute little birdie!

Tim hard at work!  He is actually really good at this! It’s adorable. :)

We both painted an anniversary reminder on the bottom of our mugs. :) 

I love that.

Tim wrote on the inside of his mug…. “live everyday unashamed”  and put 1:16 for Romans 1:16.

We left our mugs there so they could fire them.  We get to pick them up this Saturday!  I can’t wait to see how they turn out! We are both so anxious to see our final product! haha!

If you have a place like this in your city…..I highly recommend it for a fun date!  We both had so much fun! 

I hope everyone has a lovely day today! 

Lots of LOVE!
