Believe. Be Love.

believeinspirational

I did some Sunday Word Search and these words came to my mind as I read about the constant love the Lord gives us, if we only believe. If we just cast away fear and allow love in, we can then offer love out. I use the Overgram app to put the words onto art that Chloe created. It was made from love and she truly shows me what unconditional, innocent love is all about. Thanks Chloe!

Living Room Re-Fresh

Over the years things change. It’s just a part of life. You grow you hair out, you cut it short. Your child grows. The grass turns green then brown. You learn to cook a new recipe. You open the door to new adventures and close the door on others. You open a book. You begin to write new chapters.

Lately, I’ve been in a mood to hit the re-fresh button after coming off of a year of personal growth, spiritual stretching and just a hold-on-for-dear-life season. I’ve realized I’m a different person than I was even a year ago and that’s a good thing. My tastes have also changed. I went from traditional, flea-market chic, contemporary with a twist to a relaxed mid-century feel.

I’m in a rental house so there are some things I can’t change like the flooring, but I’m working with what I have. I’m starting by getting upgrading my furniture. And when I say upgrade, I don’t necessarily mean in price, but more in cohesive style, less flea market hand-me-down style. My first purchase is this credenza/dresser I scored from JCPenney for a sweet price. It’s going in the living room where the TV will live on top. I’m excited to start styling while also using it as a much needed storage spot in the room i.e. Chloe’s toys that are piling in the corner.

Next, I’m on the hunt for a new accent chair. The rocking chair covered in palm trees was nice for a year, but it’s time. I think I’ll keep my eyes out for a deal at TJ Maxx. I’m also looking for a new coffee table. I’ve been really impressed with what Target has. But I’m definitely giving Craig’sList some love because I just love hunting for a treasure. Stay tuned as I piece together my new style for this new season of life.
