• 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]

Taking the long way…

Life has a tendency to just get so busy sometimes. With this rush of go-go-go I know I tend to lose sight of the beauty in each moment. It’s way too easy to get sucked into the 9-5 doldrum of life and just wander aimlessly from place to place. After spending some time thinking about this and seeing my own…

Welcome Spring.

The only thing that separates us from the dark, cold, blustery winter and the bright, warm, glorious summer has arrived…spring is here. Thank goodness for the cheer and happiness that spring brings forth. Gone are the dreary days of sweaters, heavy jackets, scarves, and the dullness that hangs in the air as we all eagerly await the brighter days to…

Adventure

ad·ven·ture: an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity. Maybe it’s the childlike spirit of hoping for something great around each corner, or the excitement of being somewhere unfamiliar, but there is so much joy to be had in exploring, wandering, and discovering. Something about the unfamiliar puts us on the edge of our seats and keeps us in…

Lookin’ good March.

I think March has the potential to be kind of blah. It’s like half winter, half spring…can’t really make up it’s mind…ya know? But, March is off to a great start. The sun is shining, the air is warm, and my heart is happy. It’s Friday! It’s a new month! Spring is on it’s way. What a day today was….

Less of Me. More of Him.

This morning I was looking through old journals from this summer and I stumbled across something I wrote in August that I shared on an old blog of mine, A Ray of Sunshine …as I read through my own words I felt like I was being reminded of the the sweet, carefree, and joyous spirit that I had this last summer. I…
