Thrift Store Joy

Thrift Store Joy Thrift stores are amazing! They are where I go to find something that will brighten my day and I know I won’t lose all my money (even if I get a lot of stuff) There’s Sharestuff, Salvation Army, and Goodwill. These stores have made finding joy- as a college student and new apartment renter- easy peesy. Have you ever had a day where you go into these shops and find something amazing? Everyday that I use the items I’ve found at thrift stores, I get a boost…

Polished By Kali- A Handful of Joy

Fall Nails- oh they make my heart happy! I love seeing new designs and colors that other people are wearing on their nails. Whoever came up with the idea to paint nails in the first place Thank You! I find doing my nails relaxes me and it’s another form of doing crafts. It’s an art. There’s something else about a new fresh coat of polish that really makes me feel good. Kali Uhrig shares today how nail art has impacted her. Kali is such a great friend (and sister-in-law). She…

Rest from Your Crazy Week

“Rest. Take in this moment. Stop trying to find something to entertain yourself with.” Today, I wake up feeling the headache from what I believe is not enough sleep and too many long days this week. I got to sleep in this morning, yet I still feel that ache reminding me “you over did it again.” I made some tea (taken from the hotel room in Hawaii), hoping it would warm my brain and calm the ache. I thought about turning on the t.v. or music or something, but instead…

Marrying Your Best Friend

I love being married to my best friend. Chris is always makin’ me laugh. Being married is definitely as amazing as they said it would be. My favorite parts of our journey so far have been decorating the home for fall, making dinners together (he mostly does this but I get to enjoy the meal), and seeing him everyday. In no way, did our relationship get to be this good on our own. There has been so much prayer and support from those around us. I am so thankful for…

Joy

Joy: How Do I Find It?   I’ve been known to be the jovial type. Joy was natural for me as a kid. I love being happy. Being upset makes me more upset. I try to avoid being upset at all costs. As soon as I see drama heading my way, I find a way to change the subject or get out of the conversation (unless it has to do with a t.v. show- then I love drama). I just really don’t like getting caught up in something when I’ve…

Fall Bucket List

Fall Fun for Everyone *Fall Bucket List Link Below* I did not realize how serious my husband and his family take fall. It is not fun and games until the fall movies and candles are going. They love to celebrate the cool air coming in and the fall-themed foods and drinks of the season. Creating traditions for this time of year is actually really fun. I am one to fully invest in the Christmas season, but with fall I guess I didn’t give its due attention. I have discovered a…

Welcome

You are a high priority. Do you believe that? Do you treat yourself that way? Everything you do stems from how you’ve been treated. Those who are shown that they matter and are told of their value, are often able to show others of their value. A ripple effect. They give back the love they have been given. Too often though people want to give and give and give until they are empty and miserable. This is my weakness. I ignore my need for rest until it hits me in…

I Didn’t Even Consider That

Blogging. It was not on my mind at all as something I’d consider doing in my future. I hated English class and writing papers, however I loved Art and lunch time. Why? Because those were times I could talk to people, laugh, and do what I enjoy. I love to find ways to rest from the stress. For example, being with the people that pour into me, or finding new crafty projects. I love discovering joys through everyday moments. This happens when I keep my eyes open for what details…
