When you make the effort you are rewarded with results, it’s always hard getting up for sunrise but when you do, my goodness it’s worth it.. camping up the North shore is such a treat and I take it for granted a lot, but not this day! This day I chose to get up and witness a beautiful sunrise hope you all enjoy 😊❤️

I’ve been putting off writing since so long, making excuses of being busy and telling myself It’s okay to pretend to have anything important to do at all times. My journal was sitting untouched, the dried roses were waiting and I didn’t know what to do.
But sometimes you find something at the exact right time, when you need it, and I did.
Started writing again in my journal, 2019 is going to be full of those.
I also challenged myself to read the same amount of non-fiction books as I did fiction books because I thought that was necessary. I always was more into fiction because it helped me through reality and that was no joke.
In other news, we got two new cats so we have 4 in total now, and they are NOT getting along so we have to keep them in check all the time.
The end of 3rd year of my BBA has started and I’m hoping and praying for a miracle to happen and make it all work for me. Grateful for the friends I have to make it through this hell, hope it gets over soon
Chasing after a relationship that gets no pursuit back is exhausting. It has no reward and ultimately ends in defeat.
Friends, this is not at all how a relationship with Jesus is! When you draw near to God, He draws near to you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I feel like sometimes the more we allow our minds to wander and be set on distractions, the harder it is to believe that God hasn’t wandered away from us as well. But I know that He is always right beside us, waiting for us to pull away from those distractions and look at Him. The moment we call on His name, He answers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is something that we have to learn to believe, and I’ve been learning this as well. If you pursue God, and you feel like you’re walking down a one way street, it can feel draining. It can be easy to think that He doesn’t listen, or that you’ve gone too far to return. But what I have learned in my life is that the Father’s arms are always opened wide. He didn’t pay it all on the cross to forget about you or discard you. He loves when you drink from His well in prayer, scripture, and worship. Sometimes when I feel like I’m far from His presence, I just have to realize that He is sitting next to me, and I just need to believe that He hears me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He is a real God, and wants to have a real, two way relationship with you. But I have learned that I have to untether my heart from the distractions and worries of the world so that I can be tethered completely to Him. If I’m full from what the world is offering me, I cannot be ready to be filled by what God is offering me. I have to daily choose to lay down my control and my focus so that I can focus and trust in God. And if this is difficult to do, then I take it step by step, day by day, because the Lord honors our efforts. He sees you if you’re struggling to lean in to His presence, and He will receive you with open arms when you are ready to let go.
I don’t always give God my full attention, but I am so thankful that He is full of grace!!!
So many start their year focusing on one word they feel will describe the year in a nutshell.
12 months is a long time to focus on just one word when life can hand you lemons at times, so I am giving myself a new word each month that signifies my journey at that very point in time.
Soul searching my way through Indonesia made me stronger and ready for what was yet to come, and in some cases has already arrived. I found my purpose and revived my passion. I decided to put more of my authentic self out there and see if the Universe responds. Still waiting btw 😉🙏🤙
With an interesting start to the year now behind us I've found myself surrounded by support from friends (near & far, online & off) and a whole lotta family who have my back. My tribe, my village, my people. All of whom I am feeling very grateful for. Grateful is my January. 💕

Happy birthday Buddy, hope you find your dad.
Hope your Friday is filled with lots of sunshine and outdoor adventures☀️ (Unless you’re in Nashville like me. In that case it will probably rain all weekend).
if you need me, I’ll be hiding in this cave because I just binge-watched “You” and now I’m super paranoid that everyone is a possible stalker
And just like that I’m back in DSM getting ready for round 2. In all honestly, I feel more exhausted than when break started....but on the bright side, it’s nice to be back in a place where DoorDash delivers and not everyone asks which Bluett I am🥡🥡🥡
She wasn’t bored just restless between adventures .

We’re delighted to be featuring a project by talented photographer, Marta Wasielewska, which aims to share the creative stories of several local artists. Marta’s passion for art and the creative process behind the artist’s work really shines through in her photos and words. .
First up we have portrait artist, Jenny Faye, who talks about tackling challenging compositions, gathering inspirations on her mood boards (@rubyandgraceflorist
gets a mention) and bringing her clients to tears (happy tears I should add!). .
Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy the interview (& the photos, they really do help share Jenny’s story beautifully). See bio 👆🏻 for interview.

I went to Texas to visit this past weekend and I saw this picture my mom put out of her and my dad before we were born. They were living in Europe and visiting Italy. The vibe is pretty perfect – the bike, their fashion, the background 😍
