• The Perfect Balance of Raw & Refined

    Husbands and dads are seriously so hard to shop for. Or maybe, it’s just my husband and my dad. Seriously though, I never know what to get them when it comes time to find a gift. When I was little, I was all about the DIY gifting….I mean, I think my dad might still have the makeshift glitter golfball “snow-globe” I made him when… [Continue Reading]

  • Dressed and Ready with PinkBlush + a Giveaway!

    Growing up with two brothers, I hated wearing dresses. All I wanted to do was climb trees, build forts and dig to China. But my sweet mama wouldn’t have any of it. As much as I fought to be a tomboy, she had a rule that I wore a dress to school at least two times a week. I dreaded those days.… [Continue Reading]

  • Harvest Apple Cider Mules

    Usually I’m all wrapped up in pumpkin this time of year — but as we head into November, I think I out-pumpkined myself so I decided to switch it up. Now, I’m all wrapped up in anything and everything apple. Between my new Maple Apple Bourbon candle, my overflowing apple basket and this yummy drink, I think it’s safe to… [Continue Reading]

  • 5 Things Dave Ramsey Taught Me About Money

    A few months ago, my husband and I went through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University and boy did I learn a thing or twenty. You see, I always thought of myself as a “saver” but that was pretty quickly denounced only a few weeks into the class (ok, ok by a few weeks…I mean the first class.) “I knew how to… [Continue Reading]

  • Making My Social [Media] Life Easier with CoSchedule

    I started a new job about a month ago…hence me being completely MIA from this blog. Y’all probably thought I overdosed on pumpkin chocolate chip cookies after that last post, didn’t you? Almost, but not quite. Trying to manage 12+ social media accounts for my new job, stay awake during my side job, figure out this whole marriage thing and somehow still… [Continue Reading]

Confessions of a Recovering Perfectionist

There are so many problems with the word perfect, the standard of perfectionism, and the life of a perfectionist. To reach for perfectionism is one of the most unattainable, disappointing, and heart breaking standards out there. It leaves us empty handed and let down. You see, for a perfectionist, nothing, and I mean nothing will ever be good enough. I…

My Summer Story

After almost two months of no writing, I was kind of hoping for some kind of epic return to the blogging world. So I’ve waited and waited, hoping that words would come to me, or ideas would flood my mind, or maybe, just maybe my creative spark would be reignited….but no words magically came to me overnight, no ideas rushed into…

Indescribable Joy

Well, it’s been a while. A month and a half of lots of ups, plenty of downs, some in-betweens, new adventures, endless to-do lists, a life abundant in change, and a heart lavished with blessings and joy. And as I sit here, all I can really do is breathe and recognize that, God is good. So much is overwhelming my…

Simplicity

There is something so special about leaving behind the daily duties of life, the endless to-do lists, the heavy weight of responsibility…and trading it all in for the freedom that a few days of simplicity can bring. I am an adventurer by nature, an explorer of sorts, a restless heart always trying to grab onto more of life. Yet I…
