happy halloween y’all

I’ve been inspired by all the fun mantles I’ve been seeing on Pinterest lately, so I did a little Halloween decorating this year and thought I’d share it with y’all!

I searched high-and-low for a just-right banner and did a little happy dance when I found this one! It’s perfect and makes my heart flutter!

My girls had a great night trick-or-treating. And as we were going house-to-house, I started reflecting back on the last few years and even back to when I used to go trick-or-treating myself. Life has a way of moving on whether you want it to or not and whether you’re ready for it or not.

This year, for the first time in what seems like a very long time, I felt a sense of peace and a sense of belonging. Does it really take almost three years to feel like you might actually fit in somewhere?

Anyway. Just some reflective thoughts after a long, but peaceful evening going door-to-door asking for candy! :)

Hope your Halloween was full of your favorite sweets and too much sour!

happy mother’s day!

{Dear Mothers}

Be completely humble and gentle, be patient, bearing with {your children} in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace …

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

{Because dear mothers} it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose. {So mothers} do everything without complaining or arguing so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe.

~ Ephesians 4:2-3, Ephesians 5:1-2 & Philippians 2:13-15

{A dear friend wanted me to be encouraged this Mother’s Day and sent these words along with a handmade necklace. Thank you Jess, you have definitely encouraged me!}

Happy Mother’s Day dear friends! Praying you are spoiled & blessed!
