Oregon Coast with friends.

Now that we are back in God’s Country (#Texas4Eva), these hot Texas days are making me miss the West Coast. Looking back on these pictures with our friends allows me to feel that lovely ocean breeze. Take me back!

Good moms laugh at their kids when they fall 😉

A Mess of Happiness

WHAT THE!?!?! Can you believe it? My website is FINALLY up and running again. Someone please come over and pat me on the back, and take my Christmas decorations. No seriously, they are still up. Life has been nothing but a mess… a mess of happiness that is… these past 4 months. Robbie and I welcomed the sweetest little girl in the whole world to our family. Motherhood truly is the best thing to ever happen to me. I say to people all the time, I KNEW I would love her, but I never knew how much and I never knew how much FUN I would have with her. How can a tiny person who does basically nothing be sooooo FUN!?!?! I seriously have no idea.

I want y’all to meet the girl who has stolen my heart and given me new purpose to life….

These are pictures of Myla taken at 3 weeks when she was blessed. She is wearing my mom’s blessing dress.

First off. Sorry about being MIA/offline the past month. My site was hacked. All is well now, and everything is where it should be. If you are friends with me on facebook, you already my big news, but if not here it is…

*New due date… End of October.

A month after sending out our announcement we were able to find out the gender in Seattle. Oh my goodness! I was a complete disaster that day! The anxiety was KILLING ME I tell you! Of course Robbie was as calm as could be. My sweetest, most perfect cousin/friend/mom/sister/other half took my camera and photographed Robbie and I as we heard the heart beat, saw baby’s hands and toes, and all that other good stuff. We didn’t want to know the gender until we could skype family. Below are the pictures and video…

The eternal truths of Europe.

I met a lot of people in Europe.  I even encountered myself.  ~James Baldwin

As cheesy, and cliche as it sounds, it’s true. Europe changed my life. Europe has never been on my bucket list. I always knew Europe would “find” me. But what I didn’t know is I would find myself.

My vocabulary is too small, and my writing is too weak to begin to describe what my soul found in the rundown cobblestone streets of Europe. When I left for Europe, I left with a broken heart. A tragic thing happened with one of my clients, and the idea of traveling and leaving the situation as is made me sick to my stomach. I COMPLETELY thought I would return with my broken heart. But once again, I don’t know everything. Europe healed my broken heart. It taught me of eternal truths that I had forgotten. I was reminded that this life is a short period of time. We only have so much time to taste ice cream, hold hands, make new friends, and laugh for hours on end. Worrying gives you gray hair. And worst, it takes away time from being with PEOPLE! There is a great quote I read recently, “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” – Oscar Wilde. Europe taught me how to LIVE. AHH!! I feel like I have been reborn. Each day is such a gift. A true gift. The greatest gift God has ever given us. He gave us a body, he gave you and me a body to LIVE and to LOVE!!!

Don’t just love the people in your life, ADORE THEM. Forgive those who have wronged you. SAY SORRY! Laugh, laugh, laugh, and laugh some more. Return those $100 pair of pants you don’t need. Smile at strangers. Thank God for every minute of every day!!! And spend your money on traveling…. These are the truths that Europe taught me.

P.S. I have many more pictures on facebook. Lets be FRIENDS!!

Merry Christmas, Darling.

Well once again, I have been lost in the joy of the season. In doing so, this blog has been far down on the to-do list. With Christmas Day shortly upon us I will be taking the next few days off to bake, wrap presents, visit friends, and most importan

tly remember and worship our Savior Jesus Christ. I feel absolutely giddy that Christmas falls on a Sunday this year. I am so excited to go to church this Sunday, and be re-reminded why I am here and can breath. Merry Christmas everyone! May the joy, and peace of this season brings be encompassed in your life…

All e-mails, phone calls, and text messages will be answered bright and early Monday morning.

Here is a peak into our festive home…

The black nativity set came from South Africa. I wub it!

And here are pictures from our Christmas Card…
