Faith on Friday #1

As I sit here thinking about what to write and what message I want to convey that is true to my faith and where my heart is at right now, I am perplexed. I had planned to write this earlier in the evening when I was more fresh in my thought process but tonight we went back to our little courthouse square for the weekly music called "Twilight Tunes". This week we met some young friends from the new church plant where we are currently attending and calling our church home. In my mind I was ... Continue Reading...

20140602_172127-1

New things are popping up all over! As I work on a little revamping of the blog, I feel like it's just a fun new start to blogging. Starting a new job has invigorating me with some new ideas for the blog. Therefore I have decided it is a good time to add some monthly goals. I have been reading a few other bloggers goals and was very inspired to push myself to write them down and then reassess my progress at the end of the month. I know I am probably a few months behind because most people start ... Continue Reading...

The day has arrived! I'm off to my new job today. A new start in so many ways. Some things do remain the same though, like the fact that I'm linking up at Greater than Rubies. The challenge today is show to make a regular tee look amazing. I picked out this striped tee and paired it with my black pencil skirt and leopard wedges + some pearl jewelry. This is one of those outfits that looked good in my head but didn't materialize like I thought it would. The photos also weren't the best but I'm ... Continue Reading...

I haven't posted any of my favorites in quite a while. Life got super busy for me in April and some of that lingered on into May. Which meant that I didn't have too much time for blog reading, facebooking, recipe reading or really much of anything in that vein. But that has changed in the last few days. Glorious non-working days! When Sunday rolls around, it will be nine whole days that I have not had to set the alarm to get up for work. As I said before, glorious days! My husband has been ...

Memorial Day & Military

Happy Memorial Day! For many Americans this weekend is all about time off from work, the lake, grilling out and the ushering in of summer. All of those things are truly fantastic but Memorial Day is a time to remember those thousands of patriots who have stood the line to protect and defend freedom for us and many others. They have faced danger and stood up against evil in the world. As the wife of an Army infantryman this is something that hits close to home. Yes, my husband was deployed to a ... Continue Reading...
