So When Carter was born I bought this little leather journal to keep my own “walk to remember book”. I would put bible verses, my favorite quotes,…

I have an Emily Ley Simplified Planner which is gorgeous and I love it but it wasn’t really satisfying my creative side so I got a Mini Happy Planner to carry in my purse.

I am not alone

I’m sitting in my pajamas covered up with a quilt I made drinking coffee and reflecting on what I’ve been feeling lately. God has put on my heart to really examine myself and be honest with my feelings and today I feel like others may be able to find comfort in the fact that they are not alone. The enemy…

I am a mess

I am a mess. And not the cute mess as in messy bun and yoga pants but the kind of mess that really makes you stop and think what is happening in my life. Several months ago I thought I knew what I wanted and what the next chapter for me looked like but God had different plans. I had…
