IMG_8766 I’m so excited to share with you the cutest little farm with an incredible mission. I have to be honest…what first sparked my interest to come visit this farm was a snap my friend, Sarah Conner, shared on Snapchat. She’s one of the VPs at H.I.S. BridgeBuilders, the organization that created Bonton Farms.  She shared a photo of two goats cuddling in the sunshine, and my attention was caught. I had to visit. I’m a huge animal lover and couldn’t wait to meet these cuties. Plus, with my love of fresh vegetables and health, I had to come check it out, and I’m so grateful I did.  keep reading

Cute Graphic t-shirtsWe all know the best shopping is online shopping because A) we don’t have to leave the house and B) waiting for a package is so fun!!  Today, I have exciting news- the official launch of my new graphic tees!  I wanted these shirts to reflect the core of my business, therefore, the shirts are based on health, love, and faith.  Oh, and I’m a bit obsessed with my pug Scarlett so, of course, had to create a shirt for all the other pug lovers out there.  keep reading

14 Things My Husband and I Have Learned in 4 Years of MarriageIn July, my husband, Michael, and I celebrated our 4-year anniversary.  We’ve been through a lot in our 4 little years. Not many people talk about how much work marriage can be especially in the beginning. There are ups and downs, great times and challenging times. Times filled with tears and times filled with so much laughter and love you remember exactly why you are together. Michael and I decided to collaborate on this blog post to share some of the things we’ve learned in the last four years. Some are light and fun and some are more personal.  keep reading

8 romantic outdoor date ideas Sometimes as you get busy with work and wedding planning or life in general, the romance, dates and alone time with your love can dwindle. That’s why it is so important to always make time for each other. Easier said than done sometimes. I have to remind myself of this often as well. Being married can become a routine with romance decreasing little by little until all of a sudden you realize you haven’t had a date night in weeks. We must make it a priority to keep that lovin’ alive! Outdoor dates are perfectly fun and romantic. It’s refreshing to get outside and disconnect from the world and technology and just be. You + him. I put together a list of my favorite outdoor date ideas. Some we’ve done and some we haven’t done, but they’re on our love bucket list. keep reading

Be kind. For everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.My husband and I volunteer as greeters for our church one Sunday per month. Last Sunday, I couldn’t help but sense some people were down, stressed, forcing a smile, and going through something I had no idea about. I found it ironic that I was especially noticing this sadness this particular day, and then in our volunteer group meeting, the topic of discussion was what it means to genuinely and profoundly care for one another. Unfortunately, in this life, we can’t escape difficult times; that’s what being “human” means. I was grateful I had an opportunity to smile and greet the attendees and try to show care even though it was such a short amount of time. We really have no clue what people are going through. We just don’t know. I’ve loved this quote for some time now: “Be kind. For everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.” {there are a few variations btw} This reinforces the need to be kind and thoughtful as we encounter one another each day. keep reading

Happy Valentine’s Day, Love! So, as you may recall, I recently wrote a post called A Letter to My Engaged Self to share not only with you, but also for the Happy Wives Club book blog tour. Fawn Weaver, the founder of the Happy Wives Club and author of the Happy Wives Club book {which is already a New York Times Best Seller!} was recently in Dallas doing a coffee talk. My husband {yes, he came with me!} and I really enjoyed the time spent with her. Her mission was to fly all over the world, 12 countries, 6 continents to discover the secrets to a great marriage. Not the secrets of staying married, the secrets of a great marriage. There’s a definite distinction. She shared a few of the secrets, and of course, I wanted to share two of my favorites with you. keep reading

Happy New Year 2014I have to admit, I’m tired of hearing the “New Year, New You” slogan. {I’m guilty of using it in the past though!} I understand the excitement of starting fresh, but we don’t want a new you. You are made up of your past with all kinds of experiences that have come together to form the beautiful person you are today and to teach you the type of person you want to continue to grow into. Embrace all that you are, love and cherish that person, and learn from and strengthen from your past. Recently, I re-watched The Vow. Have you seen this movie? It’s a beautiful love story. As I started to write this post, my favorite quote in the movie kept repeating in my head. So, clearly, I had to share. keep reading
