The Bride & Groom Shower

Sweet Friends & Celebrations

It’s

sleeting outside and Facebook is full of frustrated comments about how old man winter needs to go ahead and leave. I’m the odd ball that actually loves bad weather. Sure, it’s not ideal when it gets in the way of our plans, but it slows life down…. and I like that. We’re gearing up for wedding season but the last week has been so wonderful. We didn’t have much on the calendar. We had several just “stay at home” work days and I got a lot accomplished. So bring on one last snow storm because I like the way it feels when life comes to a stand still for a day…. AND I have wedding invitations to design!

Being Driven vs. Contentment

A Personal Struggle
driven-vs-contentment

This

post has been on my heart and my mind for a while. When I blog posts like this… it starts as a random thought… and then I start paying attention to these certain aspects of our life and then normally something sparks the need to write it. This week this process happened rather quickly. I had a thought a few days ago about contentment vs. being driven. My thought led to questions and then I read a post that made it clear that I needed to blog about this. I’ve been realizing recently that I don’t really have an “off” switch.

Bokeh & Molly

Learning to be Buds

She

came into our lives back in mid January and Bokeh boy didn’t know what to do. For two years, he had been the star of the show… the one and only bichpoo in the family. Now there were two and he wasn’t the only puppy that his grandparents loved. I have never seen a dog act more like a human than when Bokeh showed his jealously of Molly! It was so obvious that he wasn’t loving this new life change one bit!! They are technically brother and sister and so it makes sense that they wouldn’t get along immediately.

Time to Relax

Today

I can relax. I seriously feel like I just took the largest final exam of my life. My college memories of preparing and practicing and stressing for a big presentation came flooding back to me this week as I prepared to speak at WPPI for the very first time. I can’t wait to share more about that experience later on this month. It was such a honor to be a speaker at a convention that I have attended since the very first year I started my business!! So today I have no voice but I’m feeling AWESOME because it’s DONE!

The Power of Journaling

A Life-Enhancing Tool

This

has been something that I have been wanting to blog about for a while now! Why? Well, because journaling has been a huge part of my life since my high school days! Whenever I meet up with high school girls that are going through a tough season of life or a difficult situation, I encourage them to journal about it. Now before all of the guys totally check out of this post… let me explain! Journaling isn’t a DIARY!! It’s so much more than that! For me, journaling started as a way to document my life.
