Monthly Reflections | February

What I'm currently up to in life and on the blog. #currently #takingstock #monthlyreflections

I don't know about you, but February has flown by.  I feel like we only just started the month and here we are at the end already.  It's been a month of self-reflection for me, as I've done a lot of evaluating where I am and where I want to be.  In February, I put some steps into play to make my life a little more efficient.  I've also prepared for a lot of new creative endeavors in the month of March, so there are a lot of exciting things to come this spring.

Blaming God for Tragedies

Keeping the faith even in our darkest moments - Blaming God for Tragedies - A Simpler Grace

"Pain is the soil where the deepest kind of faith in God grows."  - Sarah Sumner 
via 'Where is God in Tragedy', Relevant Magazine.

Throughout the seasons in your life, you are bound to endure some form of tragedy, in one way or another.  These events could be anything from being involved in a serious accident to losing someone close to you.  No one ever wants to think about these things happening for fear of jinxing themselves, but they happen every day and to everyone.  I am no stranger to tragedy.  Today I'm here to share a story of pain, anger, revenge and understanding.

A Closet Purge | 101 in 1001

A Closet Purge | 101 in 1001 - A Simpler Grace

If you follow my 101 in 1001 project, you'll know that #4 on my list is to curate a capsule wardrobe and #17 is to donate 101 things I no longer need.  I've wanted to put together a capsule wardrobe for so long, but I knew that I really needed a good closet purge to simplify what I owned before I could do that.  So, this weekend, I opened my closet doors and got started.

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day weekend.  Mine was quiet, but that's exactly how I like it.  :)

TGIF, friends!  It's been quiet around here this week because I've had some family things going on that have kept me occupied and away from the laptop.  I have a lot of posts scheduled for the next few weeks, so stay tuned for some fun things!

Hello and happy Monday!  Today I'm feeling super motivated to get things done after a tough last week and a long weekend.  I love waking up with a really long to-do list and actually having the gumption to tackle it!  Don't you?

A recap post of my favorite reads from the week!

Hi, friends!  It's been several weeks since I've done one of these posts, so I'm jumping back into the swing of things and sharing again.  It's been a crazy couple of weeks filled with lots of new things here on the blog and in my personal life. We had a blizzard that resulted in about four feet of snow and there have been some trials over this time, but there are always good things on the internet!

It's been a tough week. My nephew has been sick and has been running a fever and my sister had to take him to the ER early Saturday morning.  We also suffered a loss when we found out that one of my brothers had lost his unborn child as a result of a miscarriage.
