Sunday Tea

What better way to enjoy a wet, cloudy day than with a warm cup of tea? ☕️ There’s something about tea that just makes my mind welcome new ideas and meditate on God’s goodness. Spearmint and Lemongrass grow like mad which means I get to brew yummy tea from my garden all the time. I […]

A Plight of Stairs

I have an odd habit of counting as I walk up stairs. I’m not counting each stair, I’m not counting time, I’m just counting. Can’t tell you why, I just do, so don’t worry if you hear whispers as I climb stairs. I may be a little weird but I am okay… When I take […]

Keep it Clean

I’ve been busy with the baby and cleaning today. My space got messy over the weekend so I’ve been tidying up whenever the princess gave me permission. Anyhow, that means I’m going to use a quote for today’s motivation. Yeah, I know, Monday is already over. Come back to this post tomorrow morning 🙂 From […]

Is it Love?

At times, I can’t wrap my head around Love. Still, I try. I did a few kind things for people quietly today. Shhh, the details don’t matter more than the obedience. This little painting was me loving the girl in me who wants to run away when life feels heavy. The cute part about this […]

The day before yesterday, I pulled out one of my old sketchbooks so I could complete the empty pages. I drew my newly blossoming pepper plant 🙂 After flipping through the sketchbook, I found this sentimental […]

Trust the Process

“Trust the process,” is easy to say. I always thought it was a cliche encouragement. You know, just get through this right now and you’ll reach the light at the end of the tunnel…eventually. The light at the end of the tunnel is never as motivational as it should be. That’s why I ignored people […]

Go to Prayer

I feel things shifting in my life and it’s clearly time for change. I lamented about my boredom and exhaustion with my writing. And today, I feel recharged. Not to write anything particular, haha. I’m recharged because God has been giving me important dreams lately. Last night I received one that has instructed me to […]

Labor of Love

I spent 14 hours in active labor. I was in what they call “Labor Land.” Which means that everything in the real world was blurred by complete immersion into my body. The sensations take over your whole body so there is no ability to recognize and interpret the surrounding environment. And it’s true, people will […]

Dealing with Distraction

I think you should know that I have been procrastinating on today’s blog idea for a few days. Even before I sat down to write, I tried to make a blog header (fail), watched an episode of Jeopardy!, ate twice, and taught my grandmother how to play chess. Deliberate distraction, I would say. Procrastination and […]
