BIG faith,,,BIG move....BIG trip

Lately I've been swamped, overwhelmed and bored all in the same little world I've created.  The boys are keeping me on my toes as always but since we've sold the house I've added sorting, decluttering, donating, giving & garage sale to my list of to-do's which must be complete in exactly ONE WEEK!  HA!!!!

I leave on a road trip to Iowa to visit my last living grandparent with my lovely Mama & 2 little boys in exactly 7 days ---roughly 18 hours in the car:)  Oh, and must be completely packed so my husband can move us into our new home while we're away.  Then

rest - it's not that hard

Sleeping babies do something special to my heart space.  The light little giggle or sigh that rises up in me when I see the rise and fall of their chest, the little fingers, little toes and peaceful look on their face. 

Do you find that you take pictures

random acts of kindness

We should ALL be givers!

Something happened to us as we were in the Chick-fil-A drive thru line on the big "I support Chick-fil-A" day (August 1st).  You can imagine the line!  It wrapped around the building nearly twice.  We decided we were here to make our statement & we didn't mind waiting to do it.  As we waited a lady walked up to our truck & said her husband bought 12 milkshakes to give to those waiting in line.  Now here's the clincher: their reason for doing this: "Jesus loves you" she said.  Oh boy did we enjoy every drop of that perfectly crafted chocolate "Jesus loves me" milkshake.  Then I ran inside & found them for this picture:)  love me.
these are those amazing ladies who gave generously
to tell people "Jesus loves you"

 What a great idea, huh!?!?!

So I have some ideas how you can bless someone around you HERE and thoughts about giving HERE and HERE

this is a quote in Chick-fil-A that I thought fits well
Someone blessed us today with a small loaf of homemade banana bread.  They just dropped it by Marc's office....SO SWEET!!!
Why not encourage all of us by sharing in the comment section how you blessed someone recently.

Sweet settee makes for a great backdrop

A while back I was bragging on my friend Ashley Jo Green and I wanna show you some shots she took at our Open House.  I setup a settee with some gauzy fabric, lamps & art then she stole the show...check her out:

stand tall :: stand strong

Me and Ko after the open house
These words have been ringing in my head like a sounding gong, tonight especially.  I noticed I've have been walking, sitting and even standing terribly ever since I became a mommy.  My boys stand about 4 months shy of their second and fourth birthdays and all this time my body experienced something I'd compare to two rigorous back-to-back biology experiments
