Mother’s day is just around the corner and I’ve teamed up with MASSI for a special giveaway just in time! Perfect for any mother, grandmother, sister or friend.

We are offering up one Massi Druzy Necklace in my favorite color, rose gold, as well as one of my ‘wildflower’ art prints.  The contest is being held on instagram….so head on over there for full details on how to enter.  A winner will be chosen on Friday, May 10th!





The 52 Project – a portrait series of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2013 

So this is a total cheat ’52’ post….because all of these photos were taken with my iphone….and we all know that’s against the rules with this portrait series! ha!  HOWEVER….I missed this week (I have my excuses) so this is my attempt at making up for it.  If you follow me on instagram….you’ve probably already seen all of these over the last few weeks.  But if you don’t, I thought some of these might make you laugh.  The girl is a riot…..and growing up like it’s her job.

1 / Bam (our cat) dodging a Rylee squeeze…the poor guy is always on the run  / 2 / The best face. maybe ever.  Yes, she is in a diaper in the pool and no, we didn’t let her go all the way in / 3 / raising the roof for sunshine / 4 / just two of the most precious people I know / 5 / a day at the beach with the seagulls / 6 / the sheer joy of discovering sponge bob in ice cream form (thank you ice cream truck lady for making her world) / 7 / little lady, beach bound / 8 / witnessing some serious flirtation going on….boyfriends and lollipops!

Sam and I leave today for Texas!! I’m SO excited to be able to spend some QT with my hubs, but also kind of dreading leaving Ry for so long.  5 days is not SO long…..but it’s the longest i’ve gone and it sure does feel like forever when you spend every day with that special little someone.  Of course, she would choose her grandma over me any day….so I’m hoping she won’t even miss us.  Well, maybe a little, but then that’s just me being selfish.



A new watercolor illustration inspired by Isaiah 46:4  –

” I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”

Resting in this truth today.
