We are currently going through a very difficult moment in our lives, and this verse is keeping me going at the moment. I found two separate prints on Etsy with this verse, and I wanted to share both of them with you.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

Wordfull Wednesday 

I’m taking a different direction these days with Wordfull Wednesday. I can definitely see how my blog is moving away from personal and more professional. 

This week, for Wordfull Wednesday I’m sharing some of my favorite typographic art pieces.

I am loving this fall pillow:

And this sign wants to live at my house:

And I really want this:

I love this quote so much. There are so many wonderful things that can happen when we just let go and be ourselves. 

Think about the people you are most comfortable with; those are usually the people who know us the best. I have really been working on just being myself and being comfortable with who I am. The second part of this is that I want to be someone people can feel comfortable being around. 

Wouldn’t the world be a much better place if more of us felt comfortable just being us? I think it’d change the world.

I have, for many years, struggled with the idea of perfection. Society places a huge emphasis on perfection. We’re supposed to be physically perfect, but we’re also supposed to be perfect parents and have an immaculate home. With kids. How does that work?

I recently read The Magnolia Story, which is Chip and JoAnna Gaines’ book. Joanna herself outlines her own struggle with perfection and how she is so much happier now that she’s let go of it.

That struck a chord with me, because I fight the perfection battle all the time. And what’s worse, I can see the same thing in my daughter. How do we break the cycle?

Putting forth effort to do well, not do perfectly, makes a huge difference. This is especially effective when you realize that there is always room for improvement. First, we must figure out what we need and what helps us function the best. Once we figure out how to be effective, a little extra effort seems less daunting. 

Quite possibly the most important thing is this: God didn’t make us to be perfect. He made us to serve a purpose. HIS purpose. And we’ll always be enough for Him. We ARE enough already; we don’t even need to be perfect.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

I don’t know about you, but I am making an effort to be more transparent. More, well, myself. It’s been hard, because as an introverted extrovert, I’m an anomaly. Social but still guarded. Talkative, but still quiet. I don’t often like to let the real me out of her box, but I’m noticing that good things happen when I do. 

Last week I posted a video on Facebook live about my life as of late, and all the positives that are happening in my life. It was hard. I talked myself out of it several times. I decided to just go for it and I’m glad I did.

You all responded with love and with encouragement. You responded with positive words and all of your responses really reassured me I did the right thing. 


Thanks for allowing me to truly be myself and not judging me for it.

I certainly wish I’d had known this quote at a younger age. In years past, I was way too consumed with what people thought of me and whether or not they liked me. In fact, a lot of the time, I was too worried about what people thought of me to be myself. I often was afraid to be my real self because I wasn’t sure how it’d be received. 

If I knew someone didn’t like me, I saw it as a problem with myself, and something I needed to change. What I didn’t know was this:

I’m not everyone’s cup of tea AND that’s ok. 

Not everyone you encounter in life is going to like you…just like you won’t always like everyone you meet. So why is that so hard for us to understand? 

I have learned to fully embrace my weirdness and not care what others think. I was past the age of 30 before I made the decision to just be myself, and I’m glad I did. I’m much happier and much more genuine. 

You are perfect the way God made you. Don’t worry what others think- just be you and be happy.

Week In Pictures 

I hope you’re having wonderful week.

We spent our Saturday at my nephew’s birthday party.   He turned two, and we had a blast.

Then,  when we got home, this super expressive cutie kept us entertained.

Then, on  Sunday, our church surpassed our goal for Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes.

At Home, we accomplished so much! More on that later though.

And then we enjoyed some gorgeous skies.

Have great week.  I can’t wait to show you some of the Projects I’ve got coming your way.

Wordless Wednesday 

What a great week we are having. We started with a wonderful weekend. We decided to do something fun as a family, so we went to a trampoline park. 

Aubrey didn’t get to participate, of course. 

Then I took some pics of these two cuties in some Halloween shirts. 

It was great fun, as taking pictures of these two girls usually is. 

Also, some pretty Cardinals visited our bird feeder. 
I hope you all have an amazing week.

Week in Review Wednesday 

Happy Wednesday to you. Last week felt like fall but now we’re seeing temperatures in the eighties again.  North Carolina has some odd weather, to be sure. It may not feel very fall-ish, but it is at least looking like fall.  Our trees they are a changing.

We are actually in the process of tearing out our flower beds in the front and reworking them. We aren’t sure what we want to plant in the beds, but we are actively looking for ideas.

Miss E had the busiest weekend of all of us.  She went to the State Fair on Friday, to a cookout and party on Saturday, had a play date Saturday, and then had church and Christmas play practice on Sunday. Also on Sunday, we celebrated my father in law’s birthday.

And then this little stinker took a few steps this weekend.

I hope you have a great week!!
