Epic Sunset – July 21st

Missouri has given me some epic, colorful sunsets the last couple of days. It’s like the sky knows. And it has been magnificent! 

So a little update to a post a few months ago about how my life is. I can finally say that on August 15th I pack my life into some shipping containers and move to Phoenix, Arizona! I am unbelievably excited and a little scared all at the same time. Moving is overwhelming and moving so far is really overwhelming. But it is absolutely the right decision, because as I have talked and prayed about it the question I kept getting was; If you stay where you are, will you be disappointed down the road? And every time that question got asked the answer was yes. So I am going, and it’s bittersweet because I can honestly say I have the best group of friends here a girl could ask for and an amazing church community. But the best part about friends is they will still be my friends even though I’m not in the same state as they are. 

Adventure has called my name and it’s time to answer the call. 
Have a blessed day!


PS: stay tuned…

Spring is Amazing – April 2nd


We have had an amazing string of sunsets and sunrises recently. I was walking into the grocery store when I saw this. Beautiful, just love to stand in awe of it. And the people who were around me actually noticed that I was staring at the sunset and decided to stare at it too. At least some people notice beauty when it is right in front of them. The sad part is most people are so busy or distracted that they are missing out on so many things. And I have been guilt of this myself, but I have chosen recently to slow down my soul, and to stand in awe more, to enjoy bike rides and walks and the sound of birds and wind in the trees. I think everyone just needs to take a brake an notice some real beauty, might help our stress levels. I know it helps mine. I have come to discover that creating for me is a life saver. Whether it is cooking, photography, design or art, it helps my soul tremendously. So I hope that whatever you are doing today, that you get the chance to just stand in awe of something.
