A Fall-ish Kind of Weekend

A Fall-ish Kind of Weekend


The cool air with hints of autumn arrived in Kansas City this weekend. The leaves are starting to fall & Pumpkin Spice Lattes are a good excuse to go for a morning drive in our comfy clothes. After we lost our October baby I mentally prepared myself to feel sadness with the arrival of my favorite season. I feared that I wouldn't have the typical warm & fuzzy feelings that refresh the soul as the cool breeze comes. Just as the seasons change the soul can heal. Each day I still think about our baby gone too soon and my eyes still tear up if I get deep into thought about what could have been. This weekend brought about a sense of relief. Saturday started with a chilly morning rain shower & afternoon drizzles. The sky was gray & the pavement was decorated with wet colorful leaves. We spent the day together doing the ordinary with happy hearts & thoughts of all things cozy & slow. The sadness I feared with this season didn't arrive.

Bringing Home Puppy

Bringing Home Puppy


Eleven days ago our family of three headed to the airport to pickup our newest family member, a furry one, named Valentine Lollipop! She was an 11 week old, ten pound, white standard poodle that came all the way to us from Las Vegas to make us a family of four. It was love at first sight & it was quite obvious her soul was a gentle one. Yesterday she turned 12 weeks weighing in at 10.6 pounds. We think she's going to be on the smaller side.

Instagram For the Soul & Five Accounts to Follow

Instagram For the Soul & Five Accounts to Follow


Hello dear ones! Instagram is by far my favorite social media site to lose track of time on & truly to be inspired. I love getting to see into the lives of other people, especially the ones vacationing in far way places like Le Sirenuse & Atrani, Italy (places I'd never even heard of before!). It's fun to see into the homes of creative souls & to find small shops that work passionately to share their talent with the world. Social media gets a bad rap sometimes, but there is a lot of beauty to be found on them too. There are thousands of accounts that work to be a resource for women & to inspire us to live with purpose. Today I'm sharing my Top Five accounts to follow if you want to find God's word in beautiful little squares while cultivating an intentional walk with God.


1. Morgan Harper Nichols
Everyday she makes art & writes words as a daily practice of generosity. She asks followers to submit their story to her & then she randomly selects names each day. Her account is colorful & rich with words to brighten your soul.

2. SoulScripts
This account is a community, movement, & resource to equip women to live with purpose. They say "your brokenness is welcome here." The SoulScripts blog is a great morning read with a hot cup of coffee. 

3. The Daily Grace Co.
Equipping women in the word. Not only should you follow their Instagram account, but their website is full of resources, prayers, verse cards, Be Still (a magazine), a free book & so much more.

4. Coffee & Bible Time
Their whimsical bible doodles plus free Bible notecards are super cute. They'll inspire you to study the Bible & then to study more to find LASTING TREASURE.

5. Daughter of Delight
Everyday devotionals for the everyday woman. It's a refreshing feed. This is one I have saved for later, "While a little faith may bring your souls to Heaven, a lot of faith - clinging to God despite your circumstances - will bring Heaven to your soul." - Skip Heitzig

There you go friends. I hope you find a few new accounts that will bring joy to your soul. Please share some of your favorites with me!

XO

Magnolia's First Time at the Movie Theater

Magnolia's First Time at the Movie Theater


We took Magnolia to the movies for the first time this Saturday. With her ability to stay seated on the airplane combined with her love of movies we figured she'd really enjoy it & she sure did. The moment we stepped foot in the lobby she started to run towards all the candy that was conveniently located at eye level. Sheer excitement ran through her little body as we entered the movie theater to see Disney's Christopher Robin.
