It’s really true how you don’t miss something until its gone, right? I took a break from this space because I just felt so overwhelmed, but then this morning as I was sitting and eating my toast I was reminded of this place. This post came to mind and as I sat and read through it, I was reminded how this place served as a creative outlet for me for so long. My days are now filled with homeschooling my… Read more »

I have been kind of struggling lately with all the things of this world. Friends, my faith is secure, I know who made me , who loves me, and where I am going, but I am human and I have good old (or maybe bad old) human thoughts. I think it may be partially from my rebirth on Facebook. You see and are bombarded with so much life stuff at such a high rate in such a small amount of… Read more »

I wrote a brief caption about this last night on my Instagram but I can’t help but speak on it a little more here. Comparison is something I have struggled with for a very long time. It’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing and forget about what you have, isn’t it? I spent the last week trying to figure out why my eye was twitching. It wouldn’t stop, in fact it bothered me so… Read more »

Friends! I am so excited to introduce to y’all today my friend Charity. I have told y’all before one of my most favorite things about blogging is meeting like minded people I wouldn’t have met otherwise, and well, this gem of a girl is one of them. We met around this time last year when we both sponsored another blog. I have loved following along on her journey as she grows through her writing (y’all she is so real, like really real) and… Read more »

You know what has been happening a lot lately!? Alot of my nevers are turning into actualities. Which is beyond me. I will never co sleep. Happened. I will never have a natural birth. Yup, did that. I will never use those essential oil things. Sorry, guilty again. I will never nurse them past 18 months. Still going. I will never ever in a million ever’s home school. Uh oh. Yeah, I think God laughs at our never’s. He sees… Read more »

Every day I drive past this little teeny tiny church. And everyday for the past four weeks this message has been posted on the bulletin, change is made out of metal because it is hard For a few weeks I just laughed at the clever statement, but then slowly I began to see this exact statement thread through every part of my day. Isn’t it funny how things like that happen? I feel a tug on my heart, knowing that… Read more »

We haven’t had a real Christmas tree in quite a few years. As a matter of fact we haven’t even had a fake one. We sort of went on a tree hiatus, but this year….well, my husband and I wanted to put a little more magic in the traditions. So we not only did a real tree…we went to cut down our own. Yea, yea, yea…. In most states this is a totally normal thing…in fact in most states there… Read more »

This past week while walking through the aisles of Target I began to pick and choose my kids holiday outfits. Seriously, I always question my sanity when I do this. Mainly because I usually have all four kids with me and two of the four are too big to be strapped down in the cart, and the other two…well I can never seem to get the straps tight enough. But that’s a different story for another that I think requires a glass of… Read more »

I don’t usually take to this space and talk about controversial things. This place is a place of encouragement, a place for hope, and for love, and for honesty. But today, I had to step away from any and all forms of social media. I had to rid myself of the hate and evil of this world. I had to just make it go away. I wasn’t promised this life would be easy. I don’t believe in a God that promises sunshine… Read more »

We are home. I didn’t think that I would ever be writing that on this space, or even saying those words really. It was a long road, one that took us over nine months from start to finish. Why nine months? Well, a lot of the reasons are very personal, some that I probably won’t ever share, but they were a part of our journey nonetheless. We put our beloved first home on the market in April and it sold shortly… Read more »
