Inside and Out
When you accept the fact that your true identity includes being an overcomer, you will never settle for less than a miracle.

Life with this guy… (at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve)

Yesterday, as Abby Rose and I sat sipping on cucumber mint lemonades, I remembered something and was brought to tears overwhelmed with gratitude. 
This exact time last year I asked God for something. It was the beginning of Rosie’s senior year and there were so many things I wanted to do before she graduated. One of those things was to be able to travel and experience new adventures with her. Specifically I had always dreamed of taking her to Paris! 
As we sat there in Venice Beach I realized the huge blessing this past year has been. Not only did we get to go on our dream of a lifetime Paris trip but, we went to Portland, Seattle, Kansas City, and California. My heart is bursting with gratitude and I am so thankful for the priceless memories and time this past year. Does He always give us everything we ask for? Thankfully no. But I sure am by side myself with joy that he gave me and my Rosie this.  (at Venice Beach)

O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety, for you are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me. Let me live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings! Interlude (‭Psalms‬ ‭61‬:‭1-4‬ NLT)

I’ve been feeling The Lord tugging at me, wanting my time, wanting to take me to new places. Entering in to a new season in life I can tend to worry and let fear creep in and focus on the unknown. The moment I change my focus and look to Him I remember: He’s got me, he will never let me go, He has big plans for me, and the plans are far better than I can hope for.

How incredibly blessed are we? Aden, BC, and I spent the weekend fishing, swimming, eating sushi, laughing with, and hosting my ex-husbands sister and dad at our home. Yes, we are THAT strange family and I love it. 

Life is so cool. God is so gracious. Love conquers all.

It only happens once a year. I’m going on an adventure…   Paris, London, Dubai, Moscow, Tokyo all bottled up and delivered to my door.
