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.

And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it. All because we put the tv on the wall! Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover. Before . I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown. I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
