Seven Things on a Snow Day

1.29.2014 days! Got one today and loving every minute of it! I am a big kid when it comes to winter weather.

...two...I plan on spending a part of this snow day figuring out what I want to make eat for Super Bowl Sunday
these will probably happen again
 ...three...I can't believe the Super Bowl is this weekend...I don't really care for January, but I can't believe it's almost over

...four...This commercial. Y'all. I can't.

...five...I can't explain why, because I'm not a drinker, but I loved this shirt and bought it for some reason. It makes me laugh and happy to be a southern girl I guess.

...six...We met Muggsy Bogues! have rewatched the first two seasons of Rookie Blue and and irrationally upset I don't have the third season on DVD.

I could probably list out 15 more random things, but I'll stop it at seven. Happy Wednesday, y'all!




(This post comes from a place of just wanting to write. No rhyme or reason...just some rambling that was laid on my heart)

I am learning more and more, with each passing day that life is something that cannot be predicted or, at times, even understood.

Each of us imagine what we believe our lives will be like. Every day, we wake up with some thought of what will happen and how it will end. But the thing is, we truly have no idea. In some respect, that can be terrifying, but it can also be incredibly exciting and liberating. We have the chance to make our days what we want and that is a gift.

Aside from sending His son, I believe one of the greatest gifts God ever gave us is the chance to live our lives.

Pause just for a moment, take a breath, and rest on that fact. It's just...awesome. God could've dictated our lives starting from the first breath we took, but He didn't. He allows us to have fun, to hurt, fall down, mess up, and start all over again. We can find out what we love, what we hate, what we can't live without.

He gives us the chance to choose Him.

Simply, He gives us the chance to live.

Life and living cannot be taught. We learn, sometimes on a daily basis, what it means to us to live. We learn we will be disappointed and we will be elated. We learn there will be moments that break us and moments that build us. We learn life is constant only in the way in changes.

There are times I may hate the circumstances I am facing, but instead of praying for God to change them, I want to pray that He change my heart and my mind. I want to accept that where I am is where I am supposed to be.

I have no idea what each of you are facing today, but I hope that you are given the chance to take a step back, look at it, and see it for what it can be. Let it be a chance to strengthen you. An opportunity to catch a glimpse of the bigger picture.



Being Brave and Brief


The words I am about to type, I've typed a hundred times in some in the world are we more than halfway through the first month of 2014 and I written zero posts?!

Hello, broken record, party of one.

I'm hoping to start coming up with a blogging plan, but we'll see if that happens. I have long since stopped beating myself up about not blogging as much as I'd like. Life happens, you get busy, priorities shift. It's okay.

On an separate, completely unrelated note, I have, somewhat inadvertently, come up with a mantra of sorts for myself for this year...
This is not something I normally do, but for some reason, these two words have been resonating with me. I want to live this life I've been given fearlessly. As my good friend Taylor Swift once said, "Fearless is not the absence of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, fearless is having fears. fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death."

I hope to write a more complete, thought out post about this, but for now, I leave you with this...
