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.

One of my favorite gifts to give children for any holiday is a book, and I always prefer a book with a purpose and message. This is why I was so excited to get the chance to preview The Legend of the Easter Robin, which is written by Dandi Daley Mackall. This book is thirty-two pages long and features the beautiful, color illustrations of Richard Cowdrey.

"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.

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.

Valentine's Day can be one of the most depressing holidays if you are a single woman, Social media is full of photos of the flowers, candy and gifts your coupled female friends and colleagues received from their significant others and by the end of the day, you can feel quite down and out about yourself.

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?

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!

You guys! I have to brag a little bit about my new favorite beauty product. Never before have I tried false lashes, but I bit the bullet and gave them a shot and I was amazed.

This post is part of the Grateful Heart Monday linkup with Emily at Ember Grey.
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.
