Love your post! Your hair looks longer, of course, I don’t think I actually knew how long it was before . . .ha! And is that a “hold the baby’s arm down” technique I see up there for that picture?? lol
I bet your home is just gorgeous, it looks it from the photos!
i like it all. very much. the pictures and prose. and, mostly, the life i see you living. the life that is not afraid to struggle in the hard, the life that is embracing the now and those God has given you. and, almost 30? i have to say that my 30′s have been better, far better than my 20′s. you will love it!! it’s Thanksgiving week and i wonder if you will be coming home? maybe i’ll see you…and, as always, you’re welcome to stop in if time allows! happy Tuesday friend! ♥
Oh Clarita..you are the CUTEST mommy! you are SO beautiful! and oh my goodness is your little boy just the CUTEST!!! I want to kiss his little cheeks! We need a baby in our house!!!
I love the pillows. I love your decorating..it is so cozy and clean looking. I want to come visit!
Thanks for sharing the video. My oldest and I just watched it. My sister is doing missionary work with A Passion for Jesus, and she is getting a lot of “Why would you do that? Shouldn’t you be going to school and finding a real job?…etc.” Sadly people don’t keep eternity in mind..and sadly I get so caught up in this world too!
Now about turning 30. No panic attacks. You are going to love your 30′s! and since you only look like you’re about 22 years old, you have nothing to worry about!
Happy Thanksgiving, and a Great Big Happy Birthday!!! xoxoxo
@grace_to_be - The throw is a sheepskin rug from (where else?) Target! It’s too heavy to use as a blanket, but I got it for my babies to lie on on the floor, and when they’re not using it simply for a cozy feel on the back of my couch. I just love it! It runs a little pricey, so you can ask for gift cards to Target for Christmas! ha!
Challenging post. Would love to have your strength. You are a beautiful person inside and out. And I feel so blessed to call you MY friend. And like the rest of them said 30 is really not so bad. But for some reason I missed it that this is a yr for a big celebration. Happy birthday and Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful time in PA.
I still can’t make it through your last post without clouds getting in my eyes and then rain. There’s much to be grateful for and i love your list. I’m working on my own and focusing especially much on gratitude this week. How wonderful that we have a holiday set for that very thing! The photo of your manly hunter husband and sweet Zoe makes me melt, her trust in him makes her sparkle. mm life is full and rich, and we have so much to look forward to, keeping our eyes fixed on the things that will last. So grateful for you, for the encouragement and the beauty you bring to my day!
I love you, friend, and l.o.v.e. to hear about your children, house, life, and thoughts. It’s all so beautiful! You inspire me . . . so much. More thoughts shared later this week?? Looking forward to it!
I don’t know why I always wait, with your posts until later, to comment. I do it every time, Read. Come back. read again. come back, read again, and by then there are like, 50 comments, or ok, 17, but then I’m not sure what to say that hasn’t been said But this post is packed full of so much. I must say tho, i took a second to watch the video clip and it WAS worth it. I felt like my perspective got a little tweak. I’m still thinking over it. onto more trivial things, i loved your daughters riding outfit. And your little dude is as cute as ever. and yes, the 30′s? they’re fabulous so far.
so inspiring! i look at your projects, your pillows, and i think “i could do that. i SHOULD do that.” but somehow i just never do. i have been meaning to make neat throw pillows for a long time, but it never happens.
you are so brave to introduce your daughter to a sewing machine. i just don’t feel ready for that yet!
