The New Normal.

The New Normal.

Thank you all so, so much for your kind words, supportive comments, and encouraging hearts during one of the most difficult times our family has ever experienced.  I’ve thought to myself SO many times… how can people who don’t have faith in Jesus make it through times like these?  The assurance that we’ll all be … Continue reading

It’s Only Appropriate.

It’s Only Appropriate.

Each day, as soon as I get to work, I open up my inbox, and there sits my Daily Devotional, just waiting to be read.  Friday morning was no different, but I found it to be a sweet little “coincidence” February 7th, the 2nd year anniversary of Jarid and my engagement, the title was, “Five … Continue reading

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

Our home is completely decked out at this point… the adorned  Christmas tree, the framed printables (thank you, Pinterest), and the end table decor combined makes for one quite festive living room.

Labor Day Loving.

Labor Day Loving.

Allow me to put a disclaimer on this post by starting off with the fact that I, am by no means, a “TV person”.  I don’t particularly enjoy it much at all.  There are very few shows that can capture my attention long enough, or that I like enough to “make time” to watch.  Once … Continue reading

Checking In!

Hello, my loves!  Another huge thank you to Jessie for “holding down” the blog yesterday, as I was enjoying our first day in the Outer Banks!  We’re staying in Duck, and I’m being totally spoiled by all the awesome paths for runners/bikers and the amazing seafood already.  It’s only day two and I already feel … Continue reading

Meet Ellie! + A Giveaway!

Meet Ellie! + A Giveaway!

Let me start this review by saying, I am SUPER picky about clothing.  My husband and Mom, the two people who know me best, can attest to that.  For me, it’s all about the way it fits.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve LOVED clothing on the hanger, and tried it on only … Continue reading
