Peace. Love. & Prayer

Chris and I just want to thank all of you who have been praying for us and sending us words of encouragement. There is nothing greater than knowing you are being prayed for. There is also no greater honor than to be able to lift a brother or a sister up in prayer! As you can imagine, Chris and I have been deep in prayer over the past few days. It got me thinking, why aren't we like this all the time?? Yes, we pray everyday for others but not like we have been praying this past week. It has really opened our eyes to how lazy we become when things seem to be going good. To be honest I feel selfish. I should be lifting others up before the Lord a lot more than I have been! I'm thankful for this reminder and it is my prayer that I will be faithful to pray for others everyday just as we are being prayed for everyday! A big prayer of ours (obviously) has been for Kate. I believe our prayers have already been answered. The peace that we have is from the Lord. There is no other way that this peace is possible. A good friend reminded me that when I feel pain from the cyst I have (which has been multiple times a day) to stop and pray for Kate's cyst. My friend is doing the same thing as she has the same cyst I have. How cool is that? Such a great reminder to just stop and pray, no matter where we are or what we are doing. Chris and I wait with great anticipation for our appointment with the doctor on Friday morning. We can't wait to see Kate again and see how she has grown! I am growing so I can only imagine how she has! :) Please be praying for us for Friday that all of our nerves and anxiousness will be gone. Please also pray for wisdom for our doctor and most of all for the cyst on her brain to be gone!!! We believe!!
"May Christ through your faith dwell in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love" - Ephesians 3:17

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..

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…
