Last weekend we were under two feet of snow, this week it’s melting fast. I keep reminding myself it’s only February, but this little preview of spring is most welcome. ☔️ Only two of these Fable x Lilla Barn lovelies left and they’re on sale! No code needed. Find them both in the shop. Link in bio. 🌸
Do you guys remember last week when I was planning how my week would go? it was something like catch up on sewing, painting, and a 20 percent chance of reading. Well, that quickly turned to zero after having zero intention for each day and getting carried away with my husband having a four day weekend. To top it off my dog escaped out of my back yard after the back gate was left open Friday day night. I mean I'm all for living in the moment but with out a plan I feel just adrift in the middle of the ocean; not to mention anxiously thinking about all the what ifs. Eek! I would love nothing more to just put time aside after dinner to plan, wind down, and maybe catch up on some reading...#intentionalliving
I don’t think ever I realized just how much space I actually used in this old splendid studio... But now I’m wondering how to make my current corner nook work without getting paint on all my favorite sweaters. 🤷🏼♀️ Any tips on using a small space to the fullest?

Takes brunch very seriously. Also, I meant to post this yesterday, it being Sunday and brunch day and all. But if I’ve learned one thing from these past 9+ months of mom life, it’s that what I meant to do (and sometimes thought I’d done) and what really happens are two very different realities.🙄
Have you ever thought, “Could I just not be myself for, like, two seconds?” 🤷♀️ Sometimes we get so frustrated with our own shortcomings (I’m 100% in this boat) that we forget about the grace upon grace available to us.
In The Happiness Project, one of @gretchenrubin ’s personal commandments was to “be Gretchen.” But if I’m constantly striving and shaming myself, it’s really hard to just “be Daniella.” When we are trying to grow as humans, we walk this fine line between being who we truly are while nurturing the places we can and should grow. Right now, I’m working on accepting who I am while forming new habits and pushing myself to become more than I was yesterday.
I’m starting with identifying negative self-talk. Gosh, can we be hard on ourselves. I’m keeping a keen ear out for that nagging voice (“You did that again?? Why are you like this? Why can’t you just be better? You’re dumb.”) and finding scripture and affirmations to combat it.
What is one thing you need to tell yourself when your negative thoughts take over? I really challenge you to think of what it should be and comment it as a mini commitment to be nicer to yourself 💛
What a weekend ☀️
It was so wonderful to just put everything aside for a few days. Lots of delicious coffee, so much sunshine, snuggles with my two loves, and a whole weekend of toddler giggles 😍
You're beautiful, but you're empty...One couldn't die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she's the one I've watered. Since she's the one I put under glass, since she's the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she's the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she's the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she's my rose.

Sometimes Nash knows how to get on my last nerve and feels the need to constantly be under my feet, but I still wouldn't trade him for the world. #mylifeas#dfwblogger#texasblogger
Take me traveling and put a coffee in my hands and I’m a happy gal. If this week feels like an uphill battle for you as it does for me (started the week with 1 flu diagnosis in our house), start it by reflecting on beautiful memories, on something that inspires you, and on God’s provisions. The day we spent in Edinburgh is one I often think of when days are hard. What memories do you like to look back on? How did you make this Monday a positive one? I hope you enjoyed it, sweet friends!
I shared on the blog this morning some things I would say if I could talk to my college freshman self. Check it out ❤️
Lucky last post before I start getting ready to bump in to @life_instyle 🌻

how to be a better (happier & healthier) human being: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
never touch anything with half of your heart. choose to be present, endlessly loving and compassionate towards others. confront any challenging situation first with a deep breath, following with prayer. wander. explore. before reacting, try to understand. eat a balanced breakfast every morning. go out + buy yourself some flowers. remember what is important to you. treat your body kindly. be honest. get to know yourself. take things at your own pace. don't feel embarrassed to feel, laugh, cry, sing, or love. remember that what's right for someone else may not be what's right for you (and that's okay) never be ashamed or afraid to ask for help. do what you love, not what you think you're supposed to do. remember that you always have a choice. and find joy in what life really is -- living. 🖤

I had promised to share a clearer photo of this Herkimer Diamond ring with you, so, ta-da! • I have one that I can make in whatever size you want, and one (pictured) ready to be shipped in size 6. Each is one of a kind, and the ring-made to size will inevitably look •slightly• different. 🥂 I made this piece from hand-carved wax and cast it in sterling silver. The link is in bio 🖤 #AlternativeEngagementRing anyone? #rasvetco
