grateful for a new haircut (always feels so good!) and for an afternoon spent with people I love who inspire me. so looking forward to experiencing a bridal expo with the talented and creative aubree. so much fun helping her dream. 🙂

CHRISTMAS {day 137}

Merry Christmas!!
there is much to be grateful for: for a much needed reminder of the hope we have (a weary world rejoices), for a God who loves us so much He came as a helpless baby to a teen mother, born in a stable to make real the promise that He is Emmanuel. after a dark and difficult month, and on a day that I know held so much sadness for so many, I am grateful that we can have hope on the darkest of days.


also grateful for 24 hours straight with our amazing families, for my hubby’s 3 hour nap snuggled up with me, and for good, relaxing family time. feeling super blessed.

it’s Christmas Eve, friends! a beautiful reminder that this is just the beginning- the promised one is coming! beyond grateful for God’s great love for us, that He would send His Son to walk among us, be near to us and give us hope. praying that you have good family time as you celebrate and that light and hope would reign in your hearts as we prepare for and celebrate the coming King, Emmanuel- God with us.

“rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel will come to thee oh Israel.”
