• Welcome to the Family, Adley Mae

    Well, I blinked and somehow our little Adley Mae is already over a month old. Mama’s don’t joke when they say that it goes by fast. I’ve been taking this last month to soak in every sweet, little moment, figure out our new normal and live life at a much slower, but sweeter, pace. Now don’t get me wrong — pregnancy is… [Continue Reading]

  • Third Trimester Update

    I literally started writing a pregnancy update when we were at the 100 day mark and well, we’re now less than 50 days from this little gals due date and I’m finally getting around to posting it. That pregnant life though… But it’s hittin’ me. This baby is going to be here soon. I’ve had this weird feeling since the beginning that… [Continue Reading]

  • 2018: A Year to Simplify

    Hopes, dreams, wishes, plans, resolutions; whatever you call them, the start of the new year is always the sweetest time to write these desires of our hearts down. For me? I always seem to have a hard time getting them down on paper before January 1st, but having a January birthday, I always feel like I’ve got a two week… [Continue Reading]

  • Fall Recipes to Keep You Cozy

    With snow on the ground & the leaves all long gone, it seems like we’ve made the abrupt transition to winter here in the upper Midwest. Of course, I’m mourning the fact that my favorite season is always so short lived, but I’m trying to make the most of it and take this time to get a head start on… [Continue Reading]

  • Why I Ditched My Capsule Wardrobe

    Remember that little “experiment” I did last fall? Yeah, so….it really didn’t go too well, let’s just say I didn’t exactly finish my challenge. But in all seriousness, over the last (almost) year since that wild-haired idea, I’ve found a much better way to do things. And thank the LORD because I’m pretty sure everyone is kind of tired of… [Continue Reading]

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…

A Grateful Heart

Gratitude; Thankfulness, gratefulness, or appreciation. A feeling or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive. Discontentment; Absence of contentment; dissatisfaction. A restless longing for better circumstances. These two words do not go together. In fact, they completely FIGHT and contradict each other. We’re talking a full on brawl…chairs flying, windows breaking, people screaming….ok maybe that’s a bit…

A Ray of Light

There are certain people in this world who absolutely radiate light. After spending the last week feeling pretty low, yesterday I got to spend the afternoon with my dear friend, Brooke. This girl completely embodies the beauty and love of Christ in all that she does. Whether she is snapping pictures for her up and coming photography business, Poeima Photography, or…

Finding Joy…(even in hard times)

Life has been really hard lately. I’ve found myself in one of those lulls where all I want to do is curl up in a cozy blanket, eat cupcakes, and feel sorry for myself. YEP…I’ll be honest, it’s been on of those kinds of weeks. A few weeks ago, I started this blog with The Joy of Sharing, where I shared my…
