Timothy's 8 Month Photos

Oh my GOSH!!! If I thought keeping Timothy still for his 6-7 month photos was hard... I so didn't foresee how much more difficult it was about to become.
Mr. I-Wanna-Be-Independent was rolling, crawling, climbing, walking, jumping and anything else you could imagine. So, getting a "still shot" at this point is impossible.

I just love this little fist-chewing cutie pie! He's got me wrapped around his little finger *sigh*
Please tell me... what am I to do?

Here's a link to a video of Timothy :) Timothy Video

Wow, God is Good!!


My God is crazy amazing just-so-you-know. He's the Abba Father, Provider, Comforter and Healer,... Almighty Maker and Ruler over ALL. And... He cares for ME! His timing is perfect, His ways are far better than our own... and He loves us deeper and with more sincerity than we could ever fathom.

As some of you all know my husband recently graduated from the University of Tennessee with his Master's Degree in Mathematics Education.  Firstly I recognize that he couldn't have done it outside  of the all-sufficient GRACE  of God. His boast is not in himself or his abilities... but rather that God brought him through and not just by the skin of his teeth... But, finishing with a 4.0 G.P.A.
It was hard as..... heck.... he was gone most of the day every day having to do a full-time school schedule/internship/part-to-full-time job. But, it's DONE.

Next,... he had to find a job. He worked two jobs through the summer and towards the end of the summer was hoping to find he had a job with a school in the Knox Co school system well before having to start. We waited.... and waited.... and school started Friday of last week! No WORD FROM ANYONE!
Then, Friday late morning/afternoon he received a call from South Doyle Middle School and was out there working that afternoon!!
YES dear friends... my husband has a job! a DREAM job!!! a job hand-picked by God just for HIM! and it was just in the knick of time! People were telling us that it was too late... settle. Take what you can get and be thankful... BUT NO! God had ONLY HIS BEST IN MIND for Justin!

Let me just say... I am over the moon! For the FIRST time in our married history Justin will be home in the evenings and on weekends... with a decent salary and insurance! I will have him here with me at a certain time every day!!!!! No more nights and weekends without him! We get to be a normal family!

Now, you may think that's the end of my good news.. BUT, it doesn't stop there!!! Oh no!

I have been asking God for a van for months now. Our little Toyota Corolla was killing my back in my attempts to get Timothy in and out of the car. This last week my neighbour sold my father a Ford F150 for a song and as a result... My dad sold Justin and I his van for the cost of that truck!!! Which is ... a SONG

ANOTHER prayer answered!!!

Am I blessed or am I blessed!!! Right now the fulfillment of the prophecy I received has come to pass. I have come out of the season I've been in and I am in my new season on the mountain top. I know that there will be more valleys to come... But, I'm going to enjoy this mountain top experience for as long as it's mine!

New Product! ~Diaper Bag~

So I worked for weeks on this little "baby" of mine.

I had envisioned a diaper bag made specifically according to everything I wished I could find in a diaper bag!
I don't know about you other mothers out there... But, I hate (x100) the ugly, plastic-like, lunch box inspired diaper bags out there.
So, I designed my baby with a two separate compartments inside... One side for diapers, etc... and the other for extra clothes, formula, etc. It even has elastic lined pockets for your bottles, soaps and lotions.
It has two outside pockets for whatever you prefer to use them for and a long strap that has EXTRA padding made to go across your shoulders... Better for your health!
Now, get this... it's BEAUTIFUL! Who could've imagined right?
It's made from off-white linen and a beautiful orange and off white paisley cotton.

Oh and P.S. It's also been completely scotch guarded so no worry about stains!

Check her out... my bay-bay! :)

Please check out my shop if you find you desire a diaper bag such as this one.
Also, please forgive the pictures. I fully plan to do a photo shoot at some point using my sister/model but, we've had guests over for the past 2 1/2 weeks and have had time to do nothing of the sort :)

My New Chandelier!!

A dear lady at church found a chandelier with the best bones I've yet to encounter and quickly picked it up for me to "re-do". I loved the overall design dearly but, several of the lovely crystals were missing on it. So, I purchased some strong black rings and went to town piecing together my glass crystals and hanging them lovingly from this beautiful find. The final result is something that takes my breath away every time I look at it. See if it doesn't do the same to you!

If this makes you pant be sure to check out my shop and purchase it for yourself!
