Happy Easter {snippets of my home}

These are a few little shots of our Easter decor. Yes, I know the reason for the season is not bunnies and Easter eggs, but they are quite cute and the kiddos really like them. I am incredible thankful for my Lord and Savior. I am who I am today because of the sacrifice he made for me so long ago. It also reminds me to live this life to the fullest and one of those things that continually bogs me down is a messy home. The quote above and the whole reason I bought the book was for that little reminder to not miss moments because things are out of place for a bit. It really does make me a bad mother at times and I have been blessed with two children who don't need me to get in a tizzy over a house. They need me to be an example of Christ and show continual love no matter the circumstance and a little mess is not worthy of being an issue. I mean REALLY?!?! Why is this even an issue for me.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

*my bunnies and eggs came from Pier One. New coffee table books: book by Mary Randolf Carter, Steven Gambrel, and Victoria Hagan.

Color

It seems Ellie has been rubbing off on me in the color department. She LOVES color and you know how I veer towards neutrals, but I must say I adore these pants from J.Crew factory. This little shoot was done by the Mr. right before Ellie lost her front top tooth. Every time she talks I can't help but stare at the gaping hole. Ha. KJ is finally going through the "I can't stand picture phase". I am thankful he managed to squeeze in a few since he is looking mighty cute these days. I just love them.

Changes {Christy Ford}

Do you recall this little girls room from Christy Ford that was featured in Southern Living ages ago? Well, on her blog, and George, she shared the progression of these two rooms for her children. Happy to know I am not the only one who changes up the kids rooms so much. Photo as seen in Southern Living...

and the room over the years...

Not sure which room this was from, but I sure do love it! You can see more images of the spaces on and George.

Cleansing

Without going into too much detail, since July of last year I haven't felt well and I have been in constant pain in my lung/stomach area. This is in no means to throw myself a pity party, but just so you know where I am coming from. I have been on a good rotations of medications and have seen a variety of dr's to try to figure out what is causing the problem. Lo and behold I finally was sent to see an allergist and I believe they will be an answer to prayer. It has only been a few days since I began a new round of medications, but I do feel a slight change. I am hoping it really does continue to improve. To be honest I am just tired and have been growing weary. Some days are better than others, but either way daily tasks are just harder than they should be. Oh, and my skin has been just awful. Zit city really. All this to say I am cleansing once again. I did it about a year ago and that is when I stopped eating gluten for good and it was and still does make the world of difference. This time around I am just doing a three day juice cleanse. I am following tips from lacylike. She set out an easy plan and I bought a GE juicer from Walmart, but this one looks very similar for the same price. I began yesterday and am LOVING it so far. I may make this little cleanse a monthly endeavor or possibly this 3 day cleanse may turn intol a five dayer. I will also be trying out a few of Lisa's juicing tips and recipes. Do you cleanse or juice? Would love to hear your tidbits!

Keep It Simple

I am looking forward to a soothing weekend. We are shooting a wedding, but it's of a friends sister so it should be extra fun! I am just absolutely loving this gorgeous weather and watching my garden come to life. These are just a few things that have me quite entranced lately. Anything grab your attention as of late? Would love to hear!
