2014, I love you and you rule.

It’s here again – New Years Eve. A time for sparkly outfits and midnight kisses.

…. what a f.r.e.a.k.i.n.g. dreaded holiday ….

Pessimistic, I KNOW. But it’s not my favorite. No sparkly outfit looks good on my petite curvalicious bod (tear), little plans can beat a night reading in my bed (tear) and no boys to give me that FAMOUS New Years Kiss (rolled eyes) – WOE. IS. ME. terrible life huh guys?

J/K. I am about to turn this pity party around because you know what I do LOVEEE about New Years eve – reflecting. Yep – *NERD MOMENT*, but haters-can-hate. As tradition goes (…2 years worth of tradition…), I whip out my old journals, look through my planner and smile at all of the pictures taken. Why? Because it yet another story of God’s faithfulness. It gives me chills thinking about it. Just as He gave us day and night because He needed us to know we can only handle so much in one day. He also gives us years – so we can look and see how all of those small days make up a larger picture – a picture of His faithfulness. Continue reading “2014, I love you and you rule.”

Snow Top Mountain Selfies

Just returned from Colorado and I must say…. Colorado at Christmas is quite magical. Being from the South, I am not sure if I have ever woken up to a white Christmas… more like short-sleeve-in-the-50s-or-60s Christmas.

So when I got to spend all week gazing upon this view everyday


and then coming back to sit in this chair by a warm fireplace everyday



 P.S. this was a very coveted chair. It was so coveted, we made bets revolving around the winner being the only one who could sit in the chair for the entire day. The wind knocking over a Christmas tree before we left a restaurant was the death of me.  Dad got the chair for an entire day. He claimed it was a 1/Million chance. Little did we know, it had fallen over 3 times earlier that day  … We will hear about that stupid bet forever.

I have been skiing quite a few times and I must say, I am on the B team. My montra,

slow and steady wins the race

I’m not SUPER boring by any means, but if I get down that mountain injury free…


No matter my pace – I absolutely love the time I get with my family when we are skiing. How can cutting through trees, crashing down slopes, OR taking mountain selfies not be the best of times?! Clearly, I am always a winner with these goons by my side.

The Greatest Story Ever Told

Ever wait for something so long you think you may die if you don’t get it?

DRAMATIC, I KNOW  but we have all been there. 

Or the opposite effect, want something so bad you just can’t wait and have to have it now!

Most the shoes in my closet…

Well, let me tell you a little story. Actually, the story isn’t quite so little – it’s the GREATEST story ever told. A very, very long time ago in a stable, a baby named Jesus was born. He was conceived by a teenage girl named Mary – a virgin whom God had appointed to carry out this not so small task. Shepherds and magi traveled far to see this baby because they were told He would be a mighty King – A Savior. And that’s who He was. He grew to be a humble and strong man: healing strangers, teaching many and serving all. Most significantly, he suffered a sinners death, though innocent, allowing us to be the righteousness of God – CLEAN – and fully accessible to the High and Mighty.
