    We Bought A House

    I have many life events that have been left undocumented in my corner of the internet and I feel ready to get back into the swing of things. It’s been so long since I’ve journaled-even with pen and paper-and I have to be honest, I’m feeling rusty. My intro feels inadequate, I’m deleting words and sentences as fast as I type them out, and I’m experiencing long pauses as I think of a thought worth writing. Nevertheless! One must start somewhere. I’m thinking August 28, 2017 is a good place to begin. It happens to be the day we closed on our house in North Carolina. I have to be…

    33 Day’s of Morning Glory-Consecration Day Certificate FREE

    Well hello there!  It has been awhile! I don’t have much to say about this post except that after completing my  33 Days To Morning Glory  consecration, I wanted to have a nice certificate to sign each year.  I wasn’t able to find a free printable so I made one for myself modeled after a few that I saw available for purchase.  Anyway, I figured if I was looking for one then maybe others are too.  You can purchase a kit that will come with one, however, I have the Ebook and it did not come with a certificate that I could find. I’m going to upload the certificate I…

    Debt Confession Series | Introduction

    This year, thus far, is proving to be a slightly smoother ride compared to last year.  In January, I set out to accomplish many goals, as one typically does, only to scrap them all after reading an article online that left me with a reality check and a tough question to answer. I’ll spare the heart breaking details, but it was the ending question that made me pause and rethink everything.  The question was simple–Do you have a plan if castastrophe happens in your life? The question was more or less geared to financial circumstances, however, my answer was/is an alarming– NO. My own answer scared me because we were at…

    Baby Crib Blanket Finished

    Baby AJ received this blanket one week late but in my defense, she graced us early. Ha! I was on a tight schedule with this project and worried if I would complete it in time.  Being ear deep in homeschool planning, moving (AGAIN!), and all the other day to day tasks life requires, I had my doubts.  Luckily the pattern was SUPER SIMPLE.  It made it a fast knit. As for my reading, it is a Christmas book I picked up at the Dollar Tree a couple of months ago. It is called: The Sugar Cookie Sweetheart Swap.  It is exactly the book I am needing to read right now.…

    Knitting

    I have the honor to knit a crib blanket in anticipation of my new cousins arrival this October. I’m excited for my favorite cousin (who is more like a sister to me) and her new little bundle.  I’m just bummed I won’t be able to meet her right away. We will have a lot going on around that same time, but hopefully early next year I’ll finally get to visit.   For this blanket, I’m using Purl Soho’s free pattern.  It uses 100% Merino Wool and it is the softest yarn I’ve ever worked with.  Being a newbie knitter, I’m beginning to understand that the quality of yarn truly makes…
