You never get over it, you just get used to it.

We lost my grandma last night.

Her body is still here but I know her soul is with Jesus and there is so much peace in that. And peace knowing her pain is gone. But the grief that comes isn’t easy.

Sitting down with Harney & Sons

One of my favorite parts of blogging has been the new experiences!

I recently was chosen as Harney & Sons January Teafluencer and I got to answer interview questions and share my heart with you guys! If you missed it on their site, you can read it HERE, but I’ll also share it below.

Thanks for sticking around and giving me so so many reasons to keep at this. Thank you for the encouragment and love, and for joining me in this motherhood (and beyond) journey.

So grab a cup of tea, and cheers! xo

As I sit here

I’m sitting in my unfinished basement.

On a lawn chair.

With no idea what this post will be about…

Not just a day off.

Memorial Day.

Let me start by saying that I’ve been fortunate enough to have not lost anyone in the armed forces. My heart breaks for those that have. I do not write this post lightly. Please know if you have lost someone, you’re being prayed for.
