On Spiritual Surrender

On Spiritual Surrender

(Jul. 7, 2017) I have been tossing something around and around in my mind for months trying to get clarity. You see, it is my dream to have a business from home, doing something that I love, that allows me to share my gifts and be a blessing to others, while providing the space I need to nurture my children. This has been my dream for many years, but has been my solid prayer since last summer, which I prayed for nightly in the months leading up to Isabelle's birth. I didn't know exactly what this business would be, where...

Self-Care During Early Mommyhood

Self-Care During Early Mommyhood

(Jun. 22, 2017) It's pretty hard to write blog posts nowadays because I rarely have a quiet moment with both of my hands free. Our baby girl Isabelle is 8 months now, and I mostly hold her while she's sleeping. She'll sleep without me holding her (for about 15 minutes or so), but when I'm holding her, she'll sleep 2-3 hours. So basically, that's where we're at and I'm okay with it. I enjoy holding her, but I do miss writing and certain other things, so I thought I would write in small doses when I get a chance, just like...

Anthro Love

Anthro Love

(Nov. 30, 2016) My inspiration field trips to Anthropologie are starting to become a regular thing. I just adore roaming through Anthropologie, soaking up inspiration through colors, patterns, and textures. Their style fits my aesthetic so well, that you just might hear me letting out audible shrieks as I discover one treasure after another. This is what I found this time around....Jeans with appliqués/embroidery. This takes me back to the 90's style of used Levi's with holes and patches. Makes me want to add floral fabric swatches and corduroy to denim. Lace & velvet. My two favorite fabrics. I could...

10 Ways to Cope with an Unhealthy Relationship

10 Ways to Cope with an Unhealthy Relationship

(Nov. 3, 2016) I've been wanting to write this post for awhile. While I think it's important to move on from the past, and refrain from revisiting old wounds, I do believe it's beneficial to share what I've learned with others, in a way that can be useful. My life is so different from how it used to be, and it is my hope for others who are struggling in an unhealthy relationship to be able to make the changes they need to in order to create a healthy and happy life. I know that when I was in a dark place...

7 Things I'm Loving Right Now

7 Things I'm Loving Right Now

(Aug. 4, 2016) I have posted a few times about my love of Pinterest and the satisfaction I get pinning things in an aesthetic way. I create a visual diary of what I love, what I want to bring into my life, and what inspires me. I use it for cooking inspiration, decorating, personal style, as well as moments I want to create and an overall feeling I aspire to in my life. (I was actually posting pictures of babies before finding out I was having one). We moved recently, and I used it as my guide in creating a...
