Unexpected

By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.  Hebrews 11:8 One of our traditions on New Year’s Day is to head over to one of our favorite coffee houses to reflect on the previous year and goal set for the new year.  Well, this year was no different.  We sat bundled in our coziest sweaters, sipping on the ever so tasty vanilla latte from Crooked Tree and we started dream planning.  My sister in law likes to pick a word for the year, so I think at some point we went around the table and chose a word. ...

End 2018 with a BANG!

  Currently, the weather is somewhere in the low 50’s.  It’s rainy, cloudy and windy.  Surprisingly enough, I’m loving this weather.   I know most people would say they dislike or even hate it, but I am embracing the new season.  Similarly, I’m welcoming the new season in my life as a business owner with open arms.  The next few months, while terrifying, will be my busiest of the year.  I have tons of markets I’ll be attending including two-day Boho Markets in November and December, Flea Style Fall Show and a new show in both Waco, TX and Saint Jo, Texas.  I’m equally nervous and excited. To prepare myself for the most wonderful (and busiest) time of the year, I’m...

Hey Mama

When I became pregnant at 23 years old I was scared.  I had only dated my now husband for a short period of time, I wasn’t married, and I was so scared of the judgement.  My life at the time consisted of drinking, partying and being completely careless of my youth.  It didn’t seem harmful at the time, I was having fun, but it all came to a halt when life began to grow in my belly. I gave birth to a 6 lb 13 oz baby girl with a full head of hair one week before Christmas.  Eventually, her dad and I got married, not because it was the right thing to do, but because we wanted to.  Life...

You are a Warrior

So, about a year-ish ago, I was at an all time low.  My anxiety had hit an all time high, which was something I had not experienced in over two years.  My dad had just survived heart surgery and I had just stepped into pursuing The Sweet Hive.  Things seemed to be going great, so why was I filled with anxiety? I remember waking up one morning and just falling into my husband’s arms crying and not knowing why.  I couldn’t pin point why my heart and mind were so overwhelmed and honestly, that made things worse.  Why was I so downcast? I went to the doctor and I also went on a leave from my job.  I was embarrassed,...

Three Strands

I’ve written tons of cheesy blogs about my love for my husband as each anniversary approaches (Read last year's blog here). It has become somewhat of a tradition. Over the years we have celebrated with trips, fancy dinners, expensive presents and even a tattoo. This year we will celebrate our 10th anniversary in just a few days, I’m not sure whether we should laugh, cry or demand a trophy.  I say that with all due respect, because this year has been our most challenging year in our marriage.  It’s been a year of leaning on each other while starting not one but TWO businesses from the ground up, questioning our dreams when they don’t look or feel like the movies, finding ourselves challenged as...
