We’ve been hanging art + pictures and making this place of ours “home.” I can thank candy corn and my masterpiece of a Fall @spotify Playlist for getting me through these late night projects!
Looking for a few fun, cozy and chill songs for your day? Look no further ☺️🙌🏻🍁
Snagged this new white sweater staple the other day and oh my! It’s something worth sharing! Also, recognize these jeans?? Probably so! I wear them quite often, good thing they already have holes in them.
This weekend was full of apple butter, crossword puzzles, shopping, wine sipping, historic fact sharing and story telling and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
I wish everyone could meet my Uncle Jim. I’ve actually written a blog post before on my trips to Roanoke and my favorite stops along the way. Feel free to read that here!
It’s so easy to always stick to black and white with your wardrobe, but one of my favorite things to do especially in the fall is to add a pop of color! This free people sweater is the perfect fall sweater to add that pop to spice up your outfit!
WELCOME TO OUR HOUSE!!
We’ve just become homeowners and are sooooo excited to call Birmingham “home” for real. 🏡💕📦
P.S. Thomas wants y’all to know he plans on cutting the grass, stat. ⠀⠀⠀
Starting to indulge in alll of the Fall things since it’s starting to feel a little less crispy over here! 🍁🍂 Crushing hard on this sweater/sweatshirt!
My thought this morning:
What if my obedience assists in someone else’s breakthrough?
What if my boldness brings about someone’s freedom?
It’s bigger than us. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, loving “New Morning Mercies” by Paul David Tripp - if you’re looking for a daily devotional, look no further! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you’re looking for a Bible, try the @shereadstruth Bible! It has devotionals throughout with maps, helpful information to fully understand scripture and other fun stuff! 🙌🏻
When you look in the mirror, I hope you feel strong.
Not because of how “fit” or “tone” you are.
Not because of the size of your jeans or how many rings you completed on your Apple Watch that day (guilty).
But because of how our bodies were created to live, because of what our bodies can do, what we can lift, what we can go through, what we can accomplish with what we’ve been given. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s bigger than being our “prime” weight or what’s on our plate. It’s about acknowledging our Creator and all of the ways He has made us to do incredible things and respecting His talent at creating a beautiful and powerful thing like you + me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So friends, I hope you feel strong.
Liiiiiike maybe if we buy all of the fall things, it may decide to come sooner?
Can’t stay away from the seasonal flowers, candles, pumpkins and colors even though it’s still 90° here in Birmingham. Ugh. My b.
Websites and blogging and podcasts, oh my!
I feel like my heart + mind still work in “semesters” so I’m pumped for this “new year” and the excuse to buy random school supplies. It’s the simple things. 🗒📓✏️
These pants have been perfect for the more dressy-casual look because they’re linen and soooo breathable in the heat.
PLUS they’re 40% off right now 🙌🏻
Let me tell you a quick story.
About 2 years ago, right after we got married, Thomas had a dream to become a pilot.
We sold a lot of what we had, lived on pb&js + potato chips, and would ride his motorcycle to the end of the runway at a tiny local airport and watch planes fly over us.
Fast forward a few years later filled with other’s generosity, Thomas’s discipline and countless “God stories,” Thomas is a private pilot and able to fly us to places we’d like to visit.
I’m not telling you this to show ya how cool (and hot) my husband is (even though he is) I’m telling you to point every mile in the air, every flight pre-check, every time we put on our seatbelts and head down the runway back to the Ultimate Promise Maker and Promise Keeper.
It wasn’t on our timing and it didn’t happen the way we would have liked at every point, and our journey isn’t even finished - but friends, He will fulfill the promises and desires He has planted in you.
So maybe you feel like your dreams are financially, logistically, physically impossible + hopeless. But we serve a God bigger than our hang ups and bigger than our dreams. He created them and He tells us this...
“that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” Philippians 1:6
Keep dreamin’ 🤘🏼
Trying to wear this white ruffled wrap (say that 5 times fast 😂) dress as much as I can before Labor Day because I still don’t know how I feel about the “rule.”
Are you a follower of the white after Labor Day “rule” or a rebel?
I’d love to know!
Boos cruise ✨
Sharing dance moves, throwing kids off tubes + getting the last sunburn of the summer. Today was the best day.
