Trusting in Him!

Chris and I have been discouraged with a lot of things in our life and we're to the point now where we are just open, open to whatever God has planned for us. Never before have we really been open to "big changes" but we are getting there. I guess you can never say "never" because you never know what God has in store for you and your life. We are learning that now. Our prayer is that God will use us where we are at and take us to places we never thought possible. With that being said, we are open and have applied for a job in Nashville, Tennessee. I really thought that Chris would NEVER be open to moving there but he was all for it, only because we trust that if God leads us there and opens the door then we know that is where we are supposed to be. If not, we will stay here and be content. I know this is going to be a surprise a few of our family members because this is brand new and we haven't really told anyone but we are trusting in the Lord and are being open and obedient to His plan for our life. Please be praying for us, for our hearts to be open, to be obedient and to trust Him 100%. It's a leap of Faith and maybe God placed this before us to test our Faith and to see how much we trust Him or maybe this is Him leading us to a brand new place. We don't know. 50% of me has jumped on board and is ready to move to Tennessee and start a new life out there and the other half of me is here in Southern California. Our home is here, our family, our loved ones, our memories, everything! Lord, please lead us where you want us.

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!

10 years..

Friends. 
It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
