Fundraisers : Avery Downing

During the entire month of March, I will be hosting two fundraisers for Avery Downing, a sweet local gymnast who was paralyzed in January while practicing her award winning routine. Our good friends are her youth directors at Grace Evan in Germantown, TN and I have heard some incredible stories about this brave young lady. Her faith is way beyond her years and she has been an incredible testimony to others thru this.

Please take 2 minutes to watch the video thru the Channel 5 link below.

Any order placed within the month of March will go towards Team Avery.

I plan to donate to 'Team Avery' from my profits! Thank you so much for being apart of helping out this sweet girl and her family. Please keep the Downing family in your prayers.

6 Months Old!


I love being Lindley Belle's mommy. She changes my life for the better every day. Craig and I understand that she is our gift from Him and that our number one responsibility as her parents is to love Him more then we love her. That might sound weird but it's our calling as parents. When Craig and I pray over Lindley Belle at night, Craig always tells the Lord that we will strive to love Him first, so that in turn, Lindley Belle will never know a day when her parents did not point her to Christ. As her mommy, I am always trying to find ways to "be more spiritual" with her. There are many reasons why I love my husband, but when it comes to his role as Lindley Belle's daddy, I love how he always reminds me that the most "spiritual" thing I can do for LB is to love Christ first.

He leads our little family so well.


Our little butter ball turned 6 months old last Wednesday. Wow. It used to annoy me when I was pregnant and people would say "Oh, enjoy every stage bc it goes by so fast". Well, I've totally jumped on that bandwagon. When I look at Lindley Belle, I can hardly believe that she's not a newborn anymore. The newborn stage went by SO fast that I felt like it was over before it really even began! What a bittersweet emotion. She learns something new everyday and it's so exciting! Here are some pictures we took of her over the weekend.

Oh How I Love Pinterest!

So I finally gave in about a couple weeks ago. I had been putting it off for a while because I knew once I started...my life would never be the same! The warmer weather has inspired me to get more crafty and start getting ready for spring! I've really been missing decorating the outside of a home since we are living in an apartment right now. The front door is the only place I have to "add some personality" to the outside of our apartment.

Well, this is my first Pinterest project. I've already done 3 more since this one...in one week :)
