our marriage turns three.

WHAT A YEAR, Y’ALL. Before I started writing this post, I went back and read my posts from our first and second anniversaries, and it is amazing and humbling just how much God has done and continues to do in our life together. The past 12 months were filled with, for lack of a better … Continue reading

why church?

This may feel a little different than what I sometimes write about here, but I’d actually like to believe that it’s not. When I first started this blog in 2011, I didn’t necessarily set out for it to be a “Christian” blog — I actually wanted it to be a lifestyle blog. However, as I’ve … Continue reading

struck down, but not destroyed.

Way back when this blog started in 2011, my beloved “Granddaddy” had just begun a heart-wrenching decline in health, and by God’s grace and provision, I had this platform as an outlet to constantly ask myself what He was doing through the pain and confusion. Post after post after post, with every hurdle that came … Continue reading

tired eyes.

Let’s just get straight to it: I am tired, you guys. I know, I know: I’m preaching to the choir. I’m sure the vast majority of you reading this are tired too. As many of you are aware from my last post, I just returned to work from maternity leave — that said, my mind, … Continue reading

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone …I normally don’t like kicking off my blog posts with words from someone else, but when I thought about the sentiment behind this one, this quote continued to … Continue reading

the good ol’ days.

I hope 2019 is off to a great start for all of you; normally a new year really strikes me as a prime opportunity to reset and lay out a few intentional goals and challenges for the year to come. It sounds silly, especially when January 1 brings about countless … Continue reading

then came harper.

Exactly one month ago today, I was sitting in the hospital, staring at this precious little girl in the bassinet beside me who had come into our lives in the middle of the night. For as much as I had tried to picture what our daughter would look like, nothing could have prepared me to … Continue reading

calling me home.

Happy October, friends! I am currently sitting here indulging in all of the fall treats as a coping mechanism for being 40 weeks + 1 day pregnant, with no baby to show for it just yet. HOWEVER, I do have to say that I’m so excited for this little nugget that she gets to have … Continue reading

virginia is for lovers.

For those of you who didn’t make your way here through social media, let’s start with the big news: after a little more than two years of calling Richmond, VA home, Jordan and I feel so blessed to say that we are officially moving back to our hometown of Charlotte, NC for this new chapter … Continue reading

what we ask.

Happy July, y’all! While the summer always flies by for me, I am seriously wishing for time to slow down as we prepare for the BIG (and wonderful, albeit scary) life change that is to come in September. How are we only two months away from meeting our little girl?! I am nervous and amazed … Continue reading
