Blurry Times…


Some of you may know that this past month has been a doozy for me and my family. Sometimes it just feels like things keep getting worse and worse. Like just when you thought the worst has happened… the next day my phone rings with something almost unbearable to hear. It’s been a hard thing to digest a family struggling so much and me, in another town, starting my own family. Wanting to do the best thing for both situations: being a good daughter/big sister and being a good wife. Not to mention, I’m in the middle of wedding season trying to run a small business all by myself. So, with that said – I’ve made some big decisions in the past few days. I’ve been trying to seek some clarity in my very blurry world. I’ve decided to spend more time with my family in my hometown. Like for days maybe weeks at a time to really help out and be there for those that are hurting. And I’ve decided to take  a step back from the blog for awhile. Just until I figure this crazy new going back and forth schedule.

I normally don’t post super personal things on here: mostly happy DIY’s, wedding inspiration, snippets into my latest events I’ve designed = happy stuff. But life isn’t always bouquets and vintage furniture, right? This is the real everyday me. And this is my latest decision. I hope you all understand. And I hope that when I get things back up and running, you will come back to read and comment like so many of you do now. It would mean the world. I do love this little blog and the amazing community surrounding it -and I just can’t give up on that just yet.

  9. Praying!!!

    “O Lord, you are my lamp. The Lord lights up my darkness. In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall. “God’s way is perfect. All the Lord ’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. For who is God except the Lord ? Who but our God is a solid rock? God is my strong fortress, and he makes my way perfect. He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights.” (2 Samuel 22:29-34 NLT)
