Can you say chandies for days? 😍 I have a great love for chandeliers and pendants, so you best believe I changed out EVERY SINGLE light fixture in our remodel. Of course, I had to shop on a budget and hit up every thrift store and antique shop I could find. Amazon and World Market were my friends too. ☺️ I feel so blessed that I was able to do everything I wanted. I give thanks to the Lord AND to my husband. 🙌♥️ He seriously let me do whatever I wanted. Thankfully, he loves everything I do! So he says anyway. 🥰 On another note, I spy Posy in the pic. Comment and let me know if you see her too! 🐶
So excited about the images from this photo shoot with @gatehouseno1. Their kitchen styling is 👌🏻👌🏻Thank you to the homeowner @whitsteele for her sweetest hospitality. We chatted during the entire shoot and she made me a delicious peach Diet Coke❤️
Today I get to share one of my favorite people on Instagram. Karan from @designsbykaran is one of those people who I can call anytime to ask for input and her opinion on one of my crazy ideas. She is awesome!
And look at this photo. Not only is it the coolest dinner party setting but it is also brilliant. How much do I love how she hung that frame? It’s just fabulous.
Swipe left for more of her awesome photos and then head on over to @designsbykaran to see how talented Karan is.
Karan is definitely #onetofollow .

STOP COMPARING YOURSELF!
Do I have your attention now? I noticed that SO many girls have a new years resolution to compare theirself less. This makes me so sad...why do us girls do this? I'm not perfect, I've done it too...but guess what? That means that the girl that you think has the best eyebrows, the best hair or the best body... the chances are she's comparing herself too. And who knows maybe she looks at YOU and thinks your just absolutely perfect. So let's love ourselves for who we are because YOU are beautiful💛
I was just thinking about this fun family room that we did a couple of years ago.
This family has grown since we completed the space.
Good thing we added tons of toy storage.
How do store your kids toys so that you can still enjoy your family room?
A tv console with drawers and baskets added under the coffee table do the trick in this space. #storagesolutions
You guys just blew me away with all of your sweet comments on my last post and I feel badly that I didn’t get to answer the love!!

Tonight I want to share an account of someone that I’ve known on Instagram for I’m sure 2 or 3 years now and I just love what she shares from her home (s)! Do you know Hollie from @artfulhomestead ?

Promise #3 : Psalm 32:8
I’ve never been a New Year’s Resolution person. However, there is something about turning the calendar, and looking back on the previous year and then looking ahead to the next, that can cause you to evaluate and perhaps make changes or feel like starting something new and fresh.
I think for me, January tends to be a little calmer and quieter after a usually very crazy couple of months- so I actually have some time to do this.
This year I am venturing into some areas where I’m not so comfortable or even feel qualified. However, I do feel it is where the Lord is leading and I am excited to see what He will do through it.
This promise above gives me great peace. My part on the journey is to simply listen and to follow. .
Like this picture - we often don’t know what is around the bend. Usually that’s a good thing because we would probably pull a U-turn right away!
However, when we listen and act upon what the Lord is guiding us to do - the rewards are tremendous! He has never disappointed me.
I pray friends that if you are being prompted to step out in an area that is new or a little frightening, but you know in your heart it is what you are supposed to do and you are convinced it’s from the Lord - ask Him for wisdom and guidance and He will never fail you! That is His promise!
Enjoy your week and I pray you are encouraged by God’s Word!

Promise #2 : Exodus 14:14
Here we are gang! 2 for 2 🎉😂
I came across this promise today! I love it and have learned to live it in recent years!
In the past - I’ve felt the need to defend myself or others when false accusations, wrong perceptions, outright lies, have been said to me, around me, or about me.
However, what I have learned is that what really only happens is that I come across as defensive, argumentative, and weak.
There are some Bible versions that say instead of “be still”, say “hold your peace” or “keep quiet” That is so hard isn’t it when it is right in your face and the words being said to you are outright wrong or just a perception?!
The Lord is teaching me to just zip my lips and absorb. Absorb and then release it to the Lord. I will tell you that this promise from the Lord has been proven to me over and over in varying situations. When I have felt the need to defend myself or others and have chosen to just be quiet and give it to the Lord - His way of handling it was WAY better!
AND He gets the glory for handling it - not me! I don’t want to be known as the one who is always trying to win the argument or who is defensive or insecure over everything. I am told here to hold my PEACE - He will fight for me and you!
Are you tired of fighting? Are you tired of arguing? Are you weary of feeling the need to defend yourselves to others? I am. Let’s grab this promise and put it to work. Let’s absorb, release, and watch our Lord work it out and remove the threat and get all the glory for it. That’s part of His protection for us. He will take the glory and credit and will preserve us in the process. 😊
And interestingly enough, if you keep reading to vs 15 - God tells Moses to “move on”. A good place to end for this week! .
Be encouraged friends - Jesus has your back. 😊❤️
