      • My sister introduced me to a song – Blessings, by Laura Story. 
        Listen to it here!

I am in. love. with. this. song. 

I’ve been thinking for a few weeks about how truly BLESSED I am.  I think it’s finally hitting me.  My family and my Jesus are what make this life so great.  They’re who I think of first when I think of my blessings.  Everything else is just, stuff.  And I know, without a doubt, that when my any of my family leaves here they are going somewhere much better than this place…and I know I’ll see them all again! 




  1. I love you and your sweet heart! Glad you like the would have loved it WEEKS ago! lol

  2. Yes, you are blessed!! Great family picture! I've been meaning to comment on your post about "your big fat confession." Just know that you are not alone!! I struggle with the same things! I just pray for rain A LOT...because that means we just might get to see our daddy!! Looks like your business is growing. I love all your appliqués. My boys have TOO many clothes, but maybe in the fall I'll place an order ;)

  3. That is a lovely family picture! What a sweet little family you have.
