With a heart full of thanks to our Lord Jesus

Yessss! Woohoo!!! Yippppee!!! We can't tell you how happy we are right now!!! God has heard our cry and has answered our prayers in His perfect timing!!! Today Chris was offered a position at the CPA firm!!! Thank you Jesus! This has been a prayer of ours for over a year now. This is the same firm that he interviewed with back in April and was denied in June. We were really bummed out but knew that God had a better plan. My grandpa Marshall is good friends with one of the partners and when they had lunch last week and the partners heard Chris was interviewing with another company they jumped back on him. He is going to be making a little bit more than he would have if he was offered the job last month. It's a perfect example of how God works everything into good. His timing is perfect. There have been months where we didn't know how some of the bills were going to get covered and not once did we miss a payment or come up short. God has provided as He promises in His Word. He has blessed us abundantly and we are so extremely thankful for this. Thank you to our family and friends who have been on their knees praying for us. Thank you! We are so happy and can't wait to start this new journey and see where it takes us!
We are going to celebrate tonight with a nice quiet night at home and a southern dinner. Time to break in the BBQ!!

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! They are a company out of Sweden and they make the most awesome Baby bottles.

10 years..

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…
