when, how, and why to read your bible this year.

Who is ready for 2020?! I have to admit that most years when Christmas passes, I spend the week leading into a new year trying to hold tightly to the Christmas spirit: continuing to play Christmas music, keeping the tree and stockings up, and pretending that it isn’t all over. But this year, I feel … Continue reading

simple joys: the whirlwind.

Oh, hey there! Did you miss me? Did no one think to tell me that life with a toddler is beyond crazy?! Looking back at these two months, I feel like it has been a nonstop churn of morning-work-home-dinner-bedtime, on repeat, over and over, x1000. And yet, somewhere between handing fistfuls of Cheerios to Harper … 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

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

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

more than perfect.

Okay friends, let’s be real: who is already burnt out on New Year’s resolutions? It amazes me just how quickly the excitement of a new year can wear off, but I have to say that I’ve been pleasantly surprised this time around at how much the refreshing feeling of a new year has stuck with … Continue reading

looking back.

Ah, yes – I’ve added another nostalgic post on 2017 to your feed… but let’s be real, can’t we all appreciate this time where we excitedly look to something new, while closing the book on what this past year brought us? While everything post-Christmas is honestly just a little depressing to me, there is also … Continue reading

o come, all ye faithful.

Happy Cyber Monday, friends! Who is finding the best deals? Aside from the excitement that comes with finding the perfect gift for someone (or, umm, myself), I LOVE this time of year: when Christmas trees carrying years of memories become the centerpiece of living rooms, string lights bring life to even the barest parts of … Continue reading
