It's time to RISE up

My entire adult life I have felt different. Not because of the way that I look, but because I just know that there is something inside of me, placed by God that is unique. Now, I'm not in any way shape or form tryin to toot my own horn here or say that I'm special. It's something I can't even begin to describe. I know there are others like me out there, I have connected with a few, but it is so very hard for me to really open up to people without being deemed "weird," flat out crazy or oddly spiritual because they can't even wrap their mind around the way that my brain works or my heart feels. I don't even like the word spiritual because people have a misconception that it's hypocritical or fortune telling kind of yuck. Sound familiar to you?  Keep reading.

Magnolia Home Farmhouse Decor

Lately I've been rearranging home décor in my home, adding some farmhouse elements and watching a lot of Fixer Upper. One of my favorite things to do is listen to sermons and words on YouTube while decorating. I feed my soul while decorating. Sometimes it sparks new creativity and a lot of times I get new revelation during that time. I highly recommend it! It's amazing what God can do while doing household chores!

Today I'm sharing with you some of Joanna Gaines' new home décor line, Magnolia Home! You are able to shop directly from my blog and get a piece of Fixer Upper right in your own home. There are so many gorgeous pieces, I can't decide what my first purchase will be!

I also found this cute little white colander and baked pie sign at World Market.

What to Pack for Hawaii + My 10 Year Anniversary Trip

In May, my husband and I were finally able to officially celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. On our honeymoon in Hawaii in March 2006, we told each other that it was our goal and dream to come back at 10 years and celebrate. Being young and in love, we dreamt big and as the years went by, we didn't think that our dream would actually become a reality. As the time approached, God opened a perfectly orchestrated door and we were able to book our dream second honeymoon for pennies. Seriously. God is that awesome!
