This weekend was spent with my sister-in-law, her husband and our new little niece Emerson. Jon and I were able to spend time with Emmie when she was first born, but we hadn't seen her in 7 weeks. She's grown so much! She's so beautiful, smiley, and looks so much like both of her parents. I love her heaps and heaps already. I can't wait to shower her with gifts and do fun aunty stuff with her as she grows up. :)

It's so special to share this time with them and their new growing family. Jon and I love taking opportunities to get away for the weekend and take a break. I can't wait to see little Emmie again next month!

Sunday was a special night, because I got together with some special ladies for some good fellowship. I even made these cookies for the occasion! I'm not much of a baker//cooker, so this is a pretty big deal. ;)

Snapshot(s) of the Week: 1// Mint ice cream will always be a favorite. 2// Reading my favorite magazine before bedtime. 3// Dinner celebrating at Yeah Burger with my family. 4// Homemade dark chocolate, pistachio, and sea salt cookies. Yum!

* I've been listening to this song over and over and over again.
