I'm not broken anymore.

I was asked recently why I don't blog anymore. Hmm, why don't I blog anymore? I only had to think about it for a second.

Because I'm not that person anymore.

I started this blog when I was in a very different place in my life. A terrifying place. I was pregnant. And single. And broke. And holy crap how am I supposed to raise a child?!?! I was broken.

But I'm not anymore.

I'm at such a fantastic place in my life right now. My life is so great that I'm too busy out there enjoying it instead of sitting in here on a computer. I moved here to start over. And start over I did. I got involved in church when I got here and I finally feel like I found a church I belong to. Things have really started changing for me since I got back into church and really studying my Bible. Thank you Jesus!

I've finally gotten to a place where I'm good with me. I spent a lot of years not liking myself. When you don't even like yourself how can you expect anyone else to? I'm in a good place spiritually, I'm losing weight (18lbs- holla!), I've got a fantastic boyfriend (who is in Afghanistan-boo), Avery is THREE (holycraphowdidthathappen), and I live in paradise.

Life? It is good my friends.

I don't know how often I will update or if I will update at all anymore. This blog is my past. I don't want to go back there. Maybe someday I will start a new, fun, life rocks blog. You will be the first to know it. Until then I'm still around on Facebook and most recently, Instagram. And hello?!?! Pinterest!

Thank you for following me on this journey. It truly means the world to me.

After I left Morning Glory Prayer on my way to work this morning.


What an awesome start to the day.

One Night With The King

Tonight was the culmination of what our church family has been working so hard on. A formal even for the women. What a blessing it was. Everyone looked amazing. The church was beautiful. The message was life changing.

My feet are sore, my brain is numb. I can't remember the last time I got more than six hours of sleep.

But my soul is happy.

Worked to the bone

I was tasked with making lap scarves for all the ladies at church. By Friday.


I spent a large majority of the day sewing. And sewing. And sewing. I haven't even touched a sewing machine in YEARS so I first had to brush up on oh..... Say.....threading the darn thing. Thanks to my mom I got it figured out through phone calls, texts, and pictures.

I have 18 more to go. I'm completely out of lace. Sheesh.

Excuse me. I'm going to go ice my fingers.
