Light of the World. (Our Greatest Gift)

December 21, 2015
the gift of HIS light

Happy week of Christmas! Did the festivities begin this past weekend for any of you? Christian and I fulfilled another one of our traditional Christmas dates yesterday by going to our annual Christmas movie… we saw Star Wars! For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, don’t worry- nothing I’m about to say isn’t anything we didn’t already know so consider this spoiler-free. While I LOVED it (and I’m not even a Star Wars fanatic), there was one part in…

The Magic of the Season. (A Grateful Heart)

December 7, 2015
x and em fred 2015

We got our tree yesterday (Fred IV) and as I sat in our family room that afternoon, admiring our sweet tree as the branches began to rest down, I thought to myself – green is a really great, calming color… more rooms need more green. And then I had a funny thought and wondered if God favored a color and that if He did, it must be green because there is so much of it on our planet. (Random Thoughts…

Blogger Love Linkup celebration EG recap


July 3, 2015

Happy holiday weekend! I hope most of you are out of work already and celebrating?! Christian flies home today and my parents are on their way down to Nashville to spend a long weekend with us – and wouldn’t you know we’re currently being blasted with the worst thunderstorms we’ve had since moving here! I’m praying the storms somehow miraculously go elsewhere so we’re not just left with beer and boardgames, but either way the party must go on, because…

Currently: June Inspiration Board

June 19, 2015

Can you believe the last time I shared my inspiration board was in February?! And what’s worse is that not only am I just now sharing an updated board, but I also only just now switched out all of the things on it. Honestly though, I loved all of the things on February’s board so much, I didn’t mind looking at it for the last 5 months… but it was time for a change 😉  (One thing that did not…

Us. (A Grateful Heart)

June 1, 2015

Tomorrow I celebrate 3 years of marriage with him. My husband, best friend, partner in crime, silly song co-writer, super talented, handsomely tall, musically inclined, rocker of the keys, scruffy beard wearer, most hilarious person I know, and so many more things I’ll save for his ears; my babe. Today I am grateful for us. Nearing six years of friendship, I fall more and more in love with the person he is. Nearing 3 years of husband and wife, I…

A BIG weekend… GAH!

May 15, 2015

Happy Friday!! This weekend is a big one in my family…. my “baby” brother is getting MARRIED! I don’t know how this happened… surely he’s not old enough for marriage! 😉 For any of you big sisters out there… do you still sometimes look at your younger siblings and see them as the 10 year olds they used to be? My brother hasn’t been 10 in 18 1/2 years but he’s still my baby bro/ best Halloween present I ever got,…

To My Best Gal.

May 10, 2015

To my animal whispering, bad-acting movie watching, ridiculous commercial laugher at-er, fake British accent talking, bad-day-turned-good miracle working, beautiful person inside and out Mom, to my first phone call, to my best friend, to My Best Gal, Happy Mother’s Day! I love you to infinity and back,…
