My stylish mom taught me how to rock a maxie-dress back in the day. (She made a matching dresses for me and my doll, too.) Happy birthday to my precious mom!
The great thing that strikes you on looking back is how quickly you have come-how very brief is the span of life on this earth. The warning that one would give, therefore, is that it is well not to fritter it away on things that don’t count in the end; nor on the other hand is it good to take life too seriously as some seem to do. Make it a happy life while you have it. That is where success is possible to every man. – Sir Robert Baden-Powell
As I move forward toward 2013, I’ve spent the last several days organizing my life, packing up the remnants of 2012, and reflecting on the highlights of the past year. I’ve realized that the best and most important moments are those that are lovingly shared with others and those that are an expression of our hopes and dreams. God is good. Here are some of my highlights from 2012. What is on your highlight reel?
My son’s Induction Day at the Naval Academy. I was so proud and worried!
Weekends with my grandson doing cool grandma stuff.
Going back to grad school means spending time with my favorite gamecock (and sharing her meal plan).
Recording and releasing my first album – a dream come true. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being in the studio!
The cd release party was a blast!
The grace*ologie events are always a blessing.
A brother and sister reunion. (In the backseat of mom and dad’s car we quickly regressed back to our childhood!) I miss these guys.
My friend, Donna, has the heart of an artist. I love her free spirit and how she embraces life with an open spirit of joy and expectation. She is always discovering cool stuff. I love it when she shares her inspiring, beautiful (and sometimes wacky) finds with me. Today I am sharing one of our favorite videos, “happy people dancing on planet earth”, with you. It features Matt Harding dancing with people from all over the world. I hope it brings a smile to your face and joy to your day!
my perfect day would be… a day when I have no clue what time it is
my favorite meal is … sushi or a meal full of fresh, crunchy veggies
my favorite thing about my grace*ologie bracelet is … that it totally reflects me. It goes with everything in my wardrobe and I ALWAYS get at least 1 complement when I wear it and I wear it frequently.

“Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” – Matthew 11:28
Our February Women’s Gathering was extraordinary. Even as we came together to discuss and share what causes us to feel weary and burdened, there was a spirit of love and comfort here. God is good. He has rest for us even in the most tiresome and heavy of times. I pray you are feeling God’s rest and release today. View the event photos.
