The House Plans

  • Our Contemporary Farmhouse

We have had so many requests to share our house plans and so today is the day! We can’t share high-res, super detailed plans simply because plans and designs cost money, and we don’t want to get in trouble with our architect and draftsmen! You may have heard us share on our pregnancy announcement video that we are building the SAME HOUSE that we built 3.5 years ago. Before you think we’re crazy, let me explain our thought process. So first of all, our house didn’t sell for over 10 months. We thought that we would be building over a year ago, but God had different plans!

We Made It!

  • The Crazy is Pretty Much Over!

We got home last night after two weeks of craziness. We committed to a lot the first two weeks in November, and all of those commitments were made BEFORE we got pregnant. In our minds, we knew that if we could make it through October, and then the first two weeks of November, we would be ok. That was the goal! The light at the end of the tunnel! We love attending conferences and being with sweet friends. It’s one of our favorite things about this crazy life that we’ve been given. However, this conference season happened in the midst of one of our busiest seasons to date.

How Do You Know When You’re Ready to Outsource?

  • Ask Anything

Today, I’m speaking at the Creative at Heart conference in Memphis, TN! This conference is one of my favorites because it’s intimate, intentional and we’re always surrounded by the most amazing people!! I love our panel group this round because the questions that were asked yesterday were so on point. We talked about a lot, but one of the biggest questions was “When do I know if I’m ready to outsource?!”. It’s such a huge turning point in a business! So how do you know when you need to take this leap of faith?
