                                              Hello there

 it has been a while
i am still here doing my thing. the last couple of years have not been easy but God doesn't promise us easy. what God promises us is that there is something so much better than this world we live in. I am still in my battle with cancer. i was in remission for over a year. in that year i opened my own shop with a friend called Urban Grace. Last January the cancer came back and I'm back in the fight!  i decided to step away from the shop so i can concentrate on my health and my family. i  have grown so much through this journey of mine. God has walked through every scan, treatment, lousy day and fearful moments with me. i am so thankful to have a heavenly father who cares so deeply for me! as of now I am on a little chemo holiday. the cancer is stable and i am waiting to get into a clinical trial. I am feeling great. 
everyday i wake up i choose to trust God, choose happiness and to BE BRAVE!

its not always easy but anything is possible with God!
for now i'm enjoying my break from treatment.
i feel my creative juices flowing and brought out the paint.
i painted this cute little table the prettiest shade of green.
it brings me such joy to be able to do life.

no matter what you are going through today you can trust Jesus to carry you through.

have i not commanded you? be strong and courageous. do not be terrified; do not be discouraged.,for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
joshua 1:9

Waiting on Spring.

This is the time of year I 
really start to yearn for Spring.

We still have snow on the ground here in the 
And with more snow coming
I really need to bring a bit of Spring inside.

I hope the real deal will be here soon!

 Weekend finds

 Christmas break is over for my kiddos
and so are my lazy days.
I am ready to get back into my routine of life.

I wanted to show you a few things I picked up over the weekend.
I have been doing a lot of purging lately, so I have been trying to not bring new things in, but I couldn't resist this bird cage!

 I have been looking for a lamp to replace one that had broke.

I found this one and knew it was perfect with all of it's ruffles!

And finally I picked up this cute little jars
from Target.
I had bought a similar one from anthro a while back.
I have been looking for something to store all of my cords for my computer, phone ext.....
these work perfect.

Have a great day!

Saturday morning coffee


Good morning,
I am up early this morning enjoying some 
quiet time and sunshine.

My kids are going to be going back to school on Monday after being home for Christmas break.
I alway miss them,
 but I am ready to get back to some routine and structure in our lives.

I want to clean, clear out, and organize.
I want to simplify our lives!
I have really been craving that lately.

 This does not come naturally to me especially when it comes to my time. 

 When I am not organized with my time,
the important things in my life do not get done.
I spend more time on the computer than I do with God!
When I start my day out in his word and prayer everything in my life is more focused on what it should be focused on.

I don't want to be so bogged down by the stuff in my life that I am not able to enjoy all the blessings!
So this month I am going to try to clear out
my mind, my closets and my time with clutter,
 and focus on the things in my life that really are important!

 Christmas around my house

I use a lot of pastels 

I also like to use urns and greenery to bring the outside in.

Our tree is decorated with ornaments we have collected through the years.

I added some paper garland,

and some pom poms.

My mantel is decked out in mercury glass.

My mother-in-law bought me this beautiful bird garland.
It's perfect on my mantel.

 Only 5 more days until Christmas!
I better get wrapping!
