Oh what a year.

I don't feel the urge to recap the past 12 months.

It's been a very big year.

I feel that our faith has been taken to a whole new level.

Like we have our boots pulled up and we aren't wavering when fears or problems arise.

 Our God is BIGGER than them all.

We've learned that quite well in many different ways in 2015.

We've also learned that God is incredibly faithful and He has good in every single circumstance.

I see life through a new lens.

Perspective. Attitude. Gratitude. 

When you change your perspective and look at things with a positive attitude, you find gratitude....no matter what comes your way.

We've been taken deep into the waters and put back on a mountain top.

We've gone down to the waters to be with dear friends and climbed back up on the mountain to rejoice.

You see, sometimes down deep in the water is right where we're supposed to be.

Completely and totally dependent on the Lord. He won't ever let us go under, but He will take us deep. And you know what? You'll never forget treading those waters, and those waters will become sacred once you're back on the mountain top.

It was in those deep waters we found ourselves completely emerged with the Lord.

Treading hand in hand.....saying where you lead us Lord, we will follow..

While I don't miss being in the water,
I am incredibly grateful for what we learned while we were there.

Makes this mountain top so much sweeter.

So 2015 in a nutshell.

FAITH
GROWTH
GRATITUDE

I never want to forget the highs and lows of 2015.

More dreams came to fruition.
More dreams have been dreamt.

But most of all, God is just as faithful tonight as He was the morning 2015 arrived.

I dream of 2016 and all that awaits.

I want to be more intentional, put my phone down more and just enjoy the moments, I want to explore more, be more generous, make more time for quiet time with the Lord, be a friend to the friendless. My heart is bursting with desires and secret prayers that God knows.

We wait with great joy to see the new chapter the Lord is about to write for us.

And are incredibly grateful for all He has done in 2015.

My prayer as we wrap this year up is for each one of you who come across this post to know you are loved.

 Not just loved, but adored, by your Maker Himself.
 The King of all Kings, Jesus.

Put it at the top of your list for this coming year to dig a little deeper and discover the Lord.

He's waiting for you to call on His ever so faithful and loving name.

I love y'all and am grateful for every precious encouraging word and prayer sent our way this year.

Thanks for keeping up with us in 2015.

Love, hugs and kisses from Tennessee.

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. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

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!
