Paper Cut Pictures

I don’t know about you, but I grew up loving and being drawn to all of Eric Carle’s books. I still love reading “The Rainbow Fish” to my littles while taking in the beauty of those shiny scales. The storyline for “The Lost Crown” came to me so quickly, but the illustration part overwhelmed me…

Cadence turns 6!

In the months leading up to Cadence’s sixth Birthday, we tried to nail down one theme, but she just couldn’t decide! Then it hit me, “Who says you have to pick one theme for a party?” So, I made it a mix of all her favorite things (well, besides ‘LOL Surprise’ because that’s just taking…

THEY WON’T EVEN REMEMBER

To be honest I used to be in that camp. The one that felt like traveling with children overseas was something people should wait to do until their kids are old enough.  This way, they could fully understand and remember the significance of it all. I would look at those brave, brave parents boarding flights…

On This Day- Hurricane Harvey

On this very day last year Hurricane Harvey hit the town that has our hearts–Port Aransas, Texas. (as well as many other places in Texas who are just as important, but this post is about our personal story :).  This category four storm left behind complete devastation. The wave line in the photo below marks…

Zion turns 4!

All of the bug themed party details and some mushy mommy love are on the blog today. 💕

Things I’m loving right now

This post may seem a bit random, but I felt like mixing things up and sharing some lifestyle type posts, because, well, there’s a whole lot more to me than spiritual posts. Being a Pastor’s wife and co-leading our church and being a momma and wife are my main passions for sure. But, after that…

We’re A Coastal Kind Of Family

Well, this is my first old-fashioned blog post. You know, the kind where you actually share family photos, thoughts, and reflections without a “top 5 ways”, or links to where you can buy things. So, here you will find some super sweet pictures of our family enjoying the beautiful coast we live on, my thoughts…

Simplified Ways To Study The Bible

We all live such busy lives and sometimes it seems hard to make the time to sit and read or study the Bible. But, when we do make time for the word there are so many benefits! My husband always says, “If you don’t know what the Lord is saying, then start with reading what…

A Letter To My Children

I’m sure you’ll eventually learn this about your mother, but I thought I’d make sure it’s down in writing, just in case you ever needed a reminder. I’m writing only weeks after my thirty fourth birthday, as I’m reflecting on a gathering your dad and I attended recently. This gathering was full of wealthy and…

Coffee Waves Port Aransas Restored

In March of 2010, almost eight years ago, Coffee Waves Port Aransas opened for business. My husband David, who I had just started dating then, designed the shop. Coffee Waves truly holds such special memories for locals, winter texans, spring breakers, and vacationers. We were devastated when Hurricane Harvey wrecked havoc on Port Aransas. For…
