And I'm nervous, because I hope you all will want to participate and enjoy.

Here's February's theme:

I almost missed this fashion friday link-up :( And I would have been super sad lol.
But this morning I woke up feeling like cotton candy, so I dressed the part haha.

valentines sneak peak

Thought I would share a sneak peak of my Valentine's Day project with you guys :)
I've been working super hard on my very first sewing project - which I found, I LOVE TO SEW! Such a woman hehe.
Sadly, I wasn't sure how terrible this was going to turn out so I didn't take photos of my process/progress (which I'm kicking myself for now) but I do plan on doing more DIY sewing projects and will take photos regardless how terrible I feel it may be. 
But for now, here's a sneak peak at my v-gift for the bf :)

Wish! {out loud}

I wish I could host a blogging party like this one.
I finally am participating in a blogging party where I get to meet a seriously awesome blogger, get to know her, send a cute care package to her (as well as receive one), and then we will blog and link-up about it!!  I've had so much fun meeting my blogging partner and finding out all these interesting facts about her and then going home over the weekend and making a cute care package for her :) [won't share what I'm sending her because, one: that's for her to do and two: she hasn't received it yet and I don't want to spoil the surprise :) ]. I would love to host one, but not sure I would have enough participants just yet. 

If you get the chance to host/participate in a blogging party, totally do it!! It's fun and makes you feel special.

fashion friday!

I look forward to Fashion Friday all week long :)
It's inspiring me to try bolder fashions and go shopping (which of course is my favorite thing to do).
This week I got a pair of red skinnys that I played around with and actually (as you can tell) had a LOT of fun with :)

life is beautiful

To set the tone: I am listening to Walk on the Water by Britt Nicole.

I'm feeling very inspired and encouraged. There are a couple ladies who blogs I read religiously and they are pregnant; exciting and complicated. There stories are for them to tell. What I want to say is that I feel very blessed and cared for. Reading these wonderful womens blogs I have found a new appreciation for life. 

For the most part I'm pretty happy about life. Things are wonderful all around, and the things that aren't I have learned eventually work themselves out. My prayer is that I keep this feeling of blessed and joy even if/when the storm comes in. 

Life is too short to dwell on the things that could have been, should have been, wished I hads and if onlys. I want to keep living in the moment and take each day one at a time. Because you are not promised tomorrow, or even the next moment. 

There are so many wonderful things in life. So many fun things to experience, and some life lessons that though are hard to learn when they are happening, make you stronger and better if you let them.

This was a much more serious post, but sometimes I think it's important to remind others and especially yourself that you are wonderfully and fearfully made. We can do great things, no matter our back story. 

2012 has been great so far; here's to the rest of the most exciting and rich-filled year!! 
[2012 won't make itself great on its own, it's going to take ME to do it. Same is true in your life]
