Having a clean, peaceful, comforting home is very important to me! I want my family to feel safe and cozy in our home and be able to feel God’s love and peace throughout it. I truly feel like my calling from God is to be a wife, mother and homemaker because those are all things I’m passionate about. Now I’ve only been on my motherhood journey for 4 1/2 years so I’m not an expert by any means but if I can offer other moms ideas on running their homes more smoothly I feel like I should share! And hopefully some of you can offer tips to me as well! So here are a couple things I do to run our home smoothly: Continue reading
Growing up I wanted to be a mom and a teacher so homeschooling Avery is the best of both worlds! Avery does performing arts preschool 3 days a week for 3 hours each day and then we also do homeschooling throughout the week. It’s nothing major or time consuming it just gives Avery and I a chance to do something just the two of us while she learns more and more! Continue reading
I have wanted a spot to sit down and get ready at for as long as I can remember. Being able to sit down and have all my stuff in a specific spot makes getting ready actually enjoyable instead of just something I have to do. When picking out what I wanted for my vanity I know I wanted a cozy chair, lots of drawers and lots of white. So I got some inspiration and decided to do a table top and 2 drawers from IKEA and then I found my chair at a home store in our area. I love every part of my vanity so I thought it would be fun to show you guys what my vanity looks like and what things I have in all the drawers. So let’s get started! Continue reading
I always want whoever is reading my blog to know me, who I am, and what I believe. I thought what better way to get to know me better than telling all of you what I’m passionate about/ what I love!
- My family! Josh and Avery are LITERALLY my everything! I wake up and go to bed thinking about them and what I can be doing for them. I find so much happiness in seeing them happy! I can’t imagine not having Josh as my husband or not having Avery as my daughter! I know I talk about them both a lot but it’s not nearly as much as I want to. The things Avery says to me and Josh does for me warms my heart! Last night Avery wanted me to cuddle her and hold her hand so she could fall asleep. Right before she fell asleep she told me “I really love you” and instantly happy tears streamed down my cheeks. Avery is the most thoughtful person I’ve ever met and the fact that out of everyone God picked me to be her mommy just amazes me!
- God! God always comes first in my life and that’s the way I like it. He has given me so much to be thankful for! His plans are so much greater than mine (sometimes I need to remind myself of this) and I love having God as my Heavenly Father! Josh and I do our best to raise Avery up how God wants us to and love teaching her more about him. Yesterday at church Avery took communion for the first time and I explained it to her the best I could to a toddler and after it was done she said she wanted more bread dipped in juice haha. The responsibility of teaching our kids about God is very important to us!
- Country music! By far my favorite genre of music! Give me some country music and sweet tea and I’m set! My favorite artists are Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, and Luke Bryan. My 10 favorite country songs right now are “She’s in love with a boy”, “Real men love Jesus”, “Make you miss me”, “From the ground up”, “John Cougar, John Deer, John 3:16”, “This”, “Making memories of us”, “Burnin it down”, “Then”, and “I met a girl”. Something about hearing a country song just puts me in a good mood! So living in the state of country music suits me well!
Well tomorrow we head back for the United States and we are all very excited!! 2 months away from home is a really long time! We didn’t realize how much we loved our house and everything we have until we were without it for awhile.
This trip has been a great experience for us Continue reading
