Um yes I planned all my outfits for my trip to Boston and took flatlays of them. 🤷🏻♀️It takes a lot of stress off of me that way. I’m usually not so organized but my girls and I have our own Stella&Dot booth so we’ll be repoing in style. Can’t wait!
October - We had #firewood cut, laying in the woods. But, we owed someone that firewood because it was a barter for some work they had done for us. We gave the wood to them, as we should have. We have no wood and it's cold. .
November - We have some more firewood laying in the woods. But, we dont have time to get it out. There are so many other priorities. It's cold and getting colder. .
We don't spend time worrying. That fixes nothing. Worry only steals joy. .
2nd week in November - Someone from church needs help in cutting and splitting firewood. The farmer takes a day to help them. They become the priority. He takes time to fix his log splitter so they can use that too. Our firewood is still in the woods. It's getting colder and we still have no time and no wood. .
Gods timing. Gods provision. Gods abundance. Gods blessing. .
The person from church. He says this wood is free for the taking. Some had been claimed already. But there was a big pile that "he needed gone and out of his way." "He would deliver it. Two loads actually. Right to the door." .
You see. Gods ways are higher than our ways. He gives with immeasurable love. He knows exactly what #Hischildren need and when they need it. Just like any #Goodfather , He gives gifts and rewards the righteous (those in right standing with Him) . .
We don't deserve it. We can't earn it. But we are thankful that when we live in a way that honors Him, it shows in our lives. And...we are thankful for wood delivered right to the door! .
I want to know...What do you #ASPIRE in your world?⠀
I believe each of us has a place in our lives that we desire to #evolve . A place where we feel a longing for something greater, to express our trueness, our true selves that at times can be scary to reveal. To get there, we must first dig deep, connect, believe, break down walls of disbelief and aspire for evolvement within ourselves. Beautiful change! Then, we can achieve the greatness that is MEANT to be shared from our souls and finally offer more to others around us. But, it first begins with a desire, then taking that crucial step forward to succeed in your goals. YOU can do this! And with JWw as your tribe, we can do this together. This is JWW!
who would have guessed that sitting in a pool of sprinkles would be so satisfying? 🍦🍨⠀
Visited the Insta-famous Museum of Ice Cream and it was so cute! I’m posting a blog post this Saturday about my experience there with more cute photos so stay tuned!
Want to coordinate with your BFF or sister but not be matchy matchy? We’ve got you covered. The Mirabelle and the Windswept dress are the perfect pairing. Did you notice the dandelion fabric is used on both dresses? 📷 by @maribella_portraits.
For months I have been praying about what to do if, and when, God would tell me to leave the workplace. For awhile there was silence, but God spoke to me when I least expected it AND told me what I never really thought He would have me do.⠀
On January 3, 2019 I will be flying to Kona, Hawaii to join Youth With a Mission (YWAM) discipleship training school!⠀
For those of you who don’t know what YWAM is, it is a worldwide Christian organization that equips people to go out into the world and make His Name known. I will be in Fire and Fragrance Music discipleship training school for three months in Kona, and the following three months after we finish the school program, YWAM will place me and a team somewhere in the world (unknown to me at the moment) to go and love on people and share God’s heart with them.⠀
There are a lot of hardships that have happened because I have made this decision, and a lot of learning to trust God to provide, but I believe, in my heart of hearts, that my Father will provide and know He can if it is His will for me.⠀
I will share with you all soon a blog post and/or video of my journey to this decision, but I would love to share with you how you can partner with me! God has blessed me so much with finding a wonderful community here in San Antonio, as well as through Instagram, and I would love for you to be a part of this journey with me as I go out to do something so new and, honestly, a little foreign to me! I am SO excited about this y’all!!⠀

"This is the beginning of my story"
This sweet little set from @theyoungnest was the absolute perfect take home outfit for our baby girl. I was so relieved to get it on her the day we were going home and have it actually fit. When chosing her size, I definitely didn't anticipate pushing out an 8lb baby, lol. So I was worried I may have ordered too small. But thankfully it fit perfectly. The bottoms stretched nicely over her little belly and there was plenty of leg room for them chunky thighs of hers. I especially love her little top knot bow that did a great job hiding her cone shaped head 😂 (Thank you natural delivery)
So, If you happen to be looking for a cute outfit for your little one, go and check them out! She has a variety of cute sets to chose from!

[Photograph by @hannahpalamarahonestlyfeminine] Today has been hard. As the swelling from birth has subsided, the damage has been making itself more apparent. I’ve spent much of the past few days confined to the sofa (horizontally - I really can’t sit at all!) but the children are finding it hurtful and confusing that I can’t respond to their needs and carry them around, so today we decided that it was best if I just hid upstairs rather than keep rejecting them. 😭 I’ve been bored and lonely and felt a bit sorry for myself, which is silly really because a happy and healthy baby is more important than how many stitches. I do wish that I could be more mobile to enjoy her though. But, I have just kissed the children goodnight (and bribed them each with a chocolate to let me off of sitting on their bedroom floor to tell them a story!) and Hannah just sent me this picture from when we met Vita, before we knew that she was Vita, and I am going to try to get some sleep before the wee girl wakes up for her nocturnal midnight - 5am nursing marathon and kick-about. And tomorrow will be better.
