This Time Last Year

This time last year I was tossing and turning and excited about heading to the hospital at noon the next day to have our baby girl. I really cannot believe how fast this year has gone by. Pure Joy!

Can't wait to publish her birthday post :)

Your Great Name

So blessed by this beautiful song at church this morning. I think we all need this reminder. May your Monday (and week) be blessed!

Today is my sister's 31st birthday! Where has the time gone? I'm blessed that I got to see her and my nephew for a bit this weekend! So fun! Happy birthday Lindsey Kay. 31 is your year!

Friday Fun Fact

I need the quote below on a coffee mug!

Happy weekend! What are your plans? Isn't it amazing that the God of the universe knows how things turn out for us? So comforting! As you go throughout your day on Friday and then on Saturday and Sunday my prayer is that you know you are forgiven and loved. That you know and rest in the fact that you are dearly loved and fought for and sought after. God loves you and has the most amazing plans for you! Grasp Him dears. He's the only way to peace.

Life on Purpose

I love my new blog layout from Small Bird Studios and I am loving 2012 so far! I've got a lot of things in the works for 2012 and can't wait to share them all with you! Thank you for stopping by!

What do think of the new look?

Thursday, January 5, 2012


I guess it's the new year change but I am craving a makeover. I want brown hair again but every time I go brown I regret it soon after and then find myself going back to a blondie. I should know myself by now but I am still very tempted to go and get brown hair. Probably won't. With that being said I am officially in line for a blogger makeover. I am really excited to see my new layout and blog title. I have gone through some training for social media and have decided that for what I want to achieve in the future my blog title needs to be my name. You'll love how I incorporated the blog title that was voted on a few months back.

I appreciate each of you that read and participate in my life and am just thankful.

My friend Lauren over at The Rescued Home had the following to say about 2011:
"As I reflected on all God did and all we accomplished I kept coming back to this question. Did I love well? I read this quote somewhere and I feel it captures my desire for life, 'I’m not too concerned with what I am going to do. I am more interested in who I am becoming. I WANT TO BE A LOVER OF GOD AND PEOPLE.'"

I think I'll make that my sentence for 2012. A makeover of heart if you will: because I’m not too concerned with what I am going to do. I am more interested in who I am becoming. I WANT TO BE A LOVER OF GOD AND PEOPLE

Thank you Lord for a brand new start!
