Do You Believe in Magic?

"When Mary found this garden it looked quite dead…Then something began pushing things up out of the soil and making things out of nothing…it made me feel very curious..I keep saying to myself: 'What is it? What is it?' It's something. It can't be nothing! I don't know its name, so I call it Magic…Magic is always pushing and drawing and making things out of nothing…So it must be all around us…I am going to make the scientific experiment of trying to get some and make me strong. I don't know how to do it, but I think that if you keep thinking about it and calling it, perhaps it will come….If you keep doing it every day as regularly as soldiers go through drill, we shall see what will happen and find out if the experience succeeds. You learn things by saying them over and over and thinking about them until they stay in your mid for ever, and I think it will be the same with Magic. If you keep calling it to come to you and help you, it will get to be part of you and it will stay and do things."
~ Colin, The Secret Garden
Magic, determination, will power, drive, vision, courage, faith. 
Whatever you need to make it happen, go get it today!

Living Room Loves: Ornate Boldness

If you don't know already, I am over-the-moon in love with my new house. However, we have been here since August and it is still not fully furnished! The most obvious space is the living room. As of right now, if you walked into my house, you would be greeted by a beautiful Moroccan style mirror, an old brown sofa, and a white table and chairs (living/dining room). Furnishing the space is going to take some saving, investing, a lot of DIYing, and even more time. So, in the meantime, I am gathering inspiration and bouncing ideas off of Hubby (compromise is going to be another issue). I thought this mix of bold colors with dark brown and gold accents would speak to both my love of color and his super masculine style. But alas, he didn't like my two favorite pieces, the rug and the painting! Oh well, I guess I will dream up something new and see if that one is a hit. Living Room Loves: Ornate Boldness

What do you think of the space? What would you add or take away to make it better?

10 Reasons I HAVE to Wake Up At 4:00am

1. Quiet time with Jesus
Starting my day giving thanks for the breath I breathe, asking for guidance and clarity, arming myself with purpose.

2. It's the best (sometimes only) time to exercise.
Those endorphins are better than coffee. 

3. Breakfast
The most important meal of the day and I don't function well without it.

4. Chores
Fold a load of laundry. Unload the dishwasher. Quick things I can do to keep the house from overflowing.

5. Review and post for the day 
In a perfect world, I will have all my content done over the weekend and posting will be a quick scan and press of a button

6. Have time to make myself presentable
No more rushing out of the house looking like I don't love myself

7. I have two little girls 
No more rushing out of the house looking like I don't love my girls

8. Pack lunches and prep dinner
If you fail to plan...

9. Pack exercise bag
...You plan to fail

10. Get to work on time
Until I can make my own schedule, I committed to following theirs.

Happy New Year!

Good Morning! Happy New Year! Last year was pretty great. Highlights? 

1. Hubby, Naomi and I welcomed our beautiful Noelle to the world.

That smile…..I don't know how I ever lived without it!

2. We moved into a wonderful house in my dream neighborhood. 

This is what I see when I walk out my front door.

3. This is what I come home to everyday.

I have truly been blessed. And 2014 is going to be no different. I am turning 30 ya'll!!!! Although I am having mixed feelings about the situation, I am excited to see what this new chapter of life brings. No matter what, I am excited to be sharing this chapter with my amazing husband and beautiful girls. I hope you all have a blessed and peaceful 2014!
