well, i am married to my high school sweetheart. we have now been together for thirteen years [married for seven] and i would not have chosen to do life any other way. somehow i just knew that i would marry this boy, from the time i was sixteen years old... i just knew. we have a history. it's far from perfect and portions of it are filled with lots of heartbreak, but it's us. and i love it. and i love him.
we have two beautiful girls: 3-and-a-half and 1. Reese, my oldest, is simply delightful. sweet and funny and smart, she makes everyone around her melt. maybe i'm biased, but she's an absolute gem. Tessa is the baby. she just plain LOVES life. and she's obsessed with her big sis. she's my little daredevil, complete opposite of Reese. i don't know how i could have considered my life to be complete before her. it is so unreal how God fills you with a capacity to love and protect and cherish another little life, without taking one ounce away from your other children.

i run a little online print shop where i mostly sell scripture prints. some are digitally designed, some hand-drawn. you can check it out here: Blossom & Vine. i also sell my designs on iPhone cases, iPad cases, and lots of other fun things.
some things i really love:
writing. dreaming. coffee. snowboarding. target. anthropologie's home wares. designing. singing. organizing. finding a great deal. decorating. spray paint. romantic comedies. jane austen. beth moore. gelato. date night. natural living: organics, local farms, non-toxic cleaning products, alternative medicine, etc. the look of books on a bookshelf. Etsy. fall & christmastime....
my heart for this blog is to share Truth. God's Truth. to give you a little glimpse of my life's joys and struggles, offering the hope that Jesus Christ can take what little we have to offer and turn it into something worthwhile and beautiful. at all times, i hope to present the Truth clearly and my deepest desire is that you know that i don't have it all figured out, except for the fact that He has it figured out and has given me everything i need in His Word and with His Spirit working through me. my life began to change dramatically the day i started believing His Word in place of the lies i believe from others or from the enemy. i want that for you too.
