God loves this hot mess: A letter to you tired mamas.

I get it. You’re exhausted. You haven’t brushed your hair in two days. You have to think really hard if you brushed your teeth this morning… You did. But gosh, did my kid? Did he brush his teeth?!! I hope so. Who knows. I’ll make him do it (possibly again?) when he gets home. Your […]

You are so worthy.

I’m about to get real raw. This isn’t the post that I thought it would be. In fact, I had written a “safer” post earlier today and it just didn’t feel right. Safe isn’t always the best. So I went back and changed it because I would be doing you a disservice by not speaking […]

Israel. Part 1 of 128439438326.

Wow! Hi, hello. It’s been a little bit since I’ve said hello. Life has been insanely busy lately. This year is bringing a bunch of new adventures! Last month I went to Israel which was AMAZING. I’ve been trying to think about what to post about it but the truth is that it was such […]

Spring Cleaning

Hello, sunshine and warm weather! How gorgeous is this day?! Days like today make me want to open all of the windows and start that spring cleaning! A couple of weeks ago one of my dear friends asked me a few questions on minimalism and decluttering. I realized that I haven’t posted much about it lately so […]

Crab Bucket Mentality

The crab bucket mentality- If you place one crab in a bucket it will climb out to sweet freedom, but if you place multiple crabs in a bucket they will pull down any crab that tries to climb out. Sounds a lot like the people in this world, huh? It’s the “If I can’t have […]

Real is rare.

Authenticity Not doing what others expect of you but what feels right to you. Being authentic isn’t something that one is or isn’t. It’s a on-going practice. Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make. Its about the choice that allow us to show up and be real. It requires vulnerability, transparency […]

How determining my values changed my life.

Values. We all have them, or at least think we know what they are, but have you really sat down to determine why you have the values that you do? For the most part, your values don’t change. You know what you believe in and you know what makes you happy. Normally those things don’t […]

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases

  His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23 Everyone has a story. Some stories are longer than others, some more adventurous, some happy, some sad. Every person has one. As life continues each story changes, grows. Isn’t that beautiful? What’s even more beautiful is […]

Worst day ever.

I became a “runner” 5 years ago this year. I never knew that it would be something that I would crave, it would become my outlet. Through the years I’ve felt happiness and heartache when it comes to running (and life for that matter). Last year was a huge running year for me. I set […]

Juicing for the New Year! A reset for your mind and body.

Oh brother… here she goes again! It’s that time of the year! The time where I bust out that dusty ‘ol juicer and put that bad boy to work. Man, these holidays got me like WHOA. Not entirely sure what the heck happened but I seriously think I ate donuts and McDonald’s like every other […]
