Who Are You Not To Be?

Hi friends!

It has been a crazy week coming home to Dallas and getting settled back in our apartment. We have officially been married for two months, we've only been home together a few weeks out of those two months, we are heading into the final weeks of our lease - not sure where we will be living yet - and trying to make grown-up decisions that most people have planned out a year in advance... but... that's just not who we are. Jesus take the wheel.

We actually enjoy the unknown. It has always been the place where...

This Weekend's Best Sales!

I was so happy to come home and spend the weekend with my mom in Charlotte! My dad was out of town and David and I both agreed last minute that it was time to get our dog back... she has been with my parents since our wedding! 

So we made a little girls' weekend out of it!! 

One of our favorite things to do together is.... shop. Well I got lucky because this weekend is Gap's Friends + Family Sale (everything is 50% off) AND Vestique's Warehouse Sale!!! We have always LOVED the GAP. Nobody gives this classic store the credit it deserves... 90% of the basics in our closets are from the GAP! When David and I started dating he was like, "Seriously!? Is the GAP even a store anymore!?" Well.... all I can say is... the tall guy is wearing some gap now.

Wandering in Wonder

I am not even sure how long it’s been since I’ve written on here. Months and months. I am officially the worst ‘blogger’ ever. Sooo, let’s just jump right in.

This past year has been a long stretch of mountains and valleys. The mountain tops have been soooooooo beautiful, colorful and full of life. And the valleys so dry and weird and confusing. It’s crazy -even, unfathomable- for me to think of where the Lord has brought me and how He got me here. In Dallas. Engaged to the man of my dreams. Thank you for your wonder, Jesus. Read more...
