blossoms of pink

I think spring has finally arrived.That makes me so happy!
And I think pretty soon every room in my house will be filled with these pretty pink blossoms.

Maybe one of the reasons I love valentines day is because I love the color red. I love hearts. I love that the two of them go together. I've always loved valentines day, and this year was no exception.

Almost 2 months since my last post...life has a way of happening. Life has surprises. Life has changes.
This winter has been one of those. But it's been a lovely winter. One of my favorite things has been all the snow falls and cold temperatures. Snow has always been a favorite of mine and living where you don't get much snow isn't  much fun...so grateful and happy I was able to enjoy it this year. Something about snow makes me so happy and excited. 
I love the freshness and of beauty of it.
I love how still everything becomes. 
I love how it slows the world down. So grateful for seasons!


on being 25

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”  — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Having a birthday the day after the new year is like getting two fresh starts. I've always loved having a birthday so close to the beginning of the new year. 25 sounds so old though..especially when you look at it as being a quarter of a century old.  So much in my life changed last year. from being engaged, married, new home, new routine, new friends, new everything...! Some days it felt like my life was turned upside down and I craved that old routine so much. But more than not I love the change. I love being a wife o Jacob.  I love waking up beside my best friend every single day. I love how God has worked in my life the last year. I love how he wrote my story, and is still writing it. So grateful for His hand in every small detail.  One can't help but wonder what this year will hold.

I think I'll like being 25.

My favorite new years quote.

Life, I am the new year.
I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.
I am your next chance at the art of living.

I am your opportunity to practice
what you have learned about life
during the last twelve months.

All that you sought
and didn't find is hidden in me,
waiting for you to search it out
with more determination.

All the good that you tried for
and didn't achieve
is mine to grant
when you have fewer conflicting desires.

All that you dreamed but didn't dare to do,
all that you hoped but did not will,
all the faith that you claimed but did not have -
these slumber lightly,
waiting to be awakened
by the touch of a strong purpose.

I am your opportunity
to renew your allegiance to Him who said,
'behold, I make all things new.'

I am the new year.

Happy New Year Lovelies! 


after christmas

The blog post I forgot to post before Christmas.
This Christmas was so special. I'll never forget it.
So many special moments.
So many memories from it.
So grateful we get to celebrate Christmas.

hello winter

Ice storm for the first day of winter - almost as good as snow, but not quite! Loving how still and quite everything gets and it makes the world look so pretty!
Grateful to be all cozy and warm inside today.
