First Role of Responsibility

First Role of Responsibility

The thin strap to my shiny and scuffed Mary Janes was worn and only holding on by a few remaining stitches. My little fingers fidgeted with the buckle, trying to be careful not to break it.  Not today, I thought.  Today I will have pretty shoes and a pretty dress and ruffled-underwear.  Today I will get a [...]

Let’s Try This Again

Five years ago,  I put this little "Oh By Golly" hat on the top shelf, purposefully out of reach.  It would take a lot of growing before I allowed myself to reach for it again.  Man, I had lost perspective, and I had believed so many lies .  You guys, when this happens, pull the [...]

We were on [...]

Itty Bitty Peach and Lace

Remember when Mindy shared with us her sweet gender reveal? Well, the baby girl is here! And  after I saw that adorable, chunky face, I knew she needed a little peach and lace. I had picked up a white table runner awhile back at the antique store hoping refashion it into something girly. It made the perfect [...]
