  3. OMGosh. Jaime I feel so refreshed and uplifted after viewing all of your lovely pics. Thank you for sharing your beautiful heart, even in your journal entries. I feel truly wrapped in joyful love, as though I have experienced the Lord's presence expressed through his adorable daughter.
    Blessing hugs,

    1. thank you Teresa! you're so sweet to me! your comment was such an encouragement to me yesterday freind ♥ have a wonderful weekend kay?!

  4. Oh my. I love all of this. Just looking at these pictures made me smile, then envious, I must admit. But mostly just happily smiling. I love your needlework map. How ambitious of you. I also love how you you placed your shelves in your living room, all the globes, and the different colored drawers. I rarely comment, but I so enjoyed looking at this post today.

    1. i'm so glad you did! thanks so much for the compliment and for reading my little blog! i apprciate you! ♥

  5. So beautiful, every single photo! I was wondering .... I have been wanting {for a long time now} to get the word 'trust' tatooed on my arm ... sorta still scared about it and all but really ready to have that word right there in my face every day as it's a BIG lesson the Lord continues to work on me about. ANYHOW ... would you ever consider creating my tatoo for me? I would want the word trust with a few of your small swirlies - I don't want anything to big or crazy. Just curious if you'd ever do that 'cause I absolutely adore your handwriting! =)

  6. I just purchased the stitching states cross stitch and am DYING over how cute your blog and instagram and kids are! I can not wait to get started!


comments ♥ i just love them and read them all (sometimes twice) (heehee) ...
