I began this blog as a way for me to record this homemaking journey I knew I was to make. And instead of becoming a better homemaker, I feel discouraged, stressed and (evidently) frustrated. Maybe it's the standards I'm holding myself to, maybe it is these crazy hormones, but maybe it's the call to something deeper that I can't understand. Regardless of which one it is (though I'm beginning to think it's a little of all three) I'm ready to not feel like this. Ready to have my cup "runeth over" once again and not feel like everything I'm doing is a total wreck.
Forgive my Ecclessiastes moment, however I must say "There is nothing new under the sun! Solomon, I feel ya brother... If there's anyone out there actually reading my blog, I'm asking for prayer. Seriously. This rut has held me far too long, and I'm so ready for normalcy and fulfillment again. I want to be content with the life and the calling the LORD has given to me. So, with that being said... cue out discouragement, and please, enter grace...

So, this past weekend, my sister-in-law and I picked up some decor (and made some!) for the baby and her room, so here's a sneak-peek.
These are the letters we're using to monogram the girls' name on a canvas with scrapbooking paper coordinating the bedding. I'm *super* excited about this one.
I also made baby announcements ahead of time, so that when little Miss Aaliya gets here, they're already taken care of. I made two different kinds, and this is one of them. I'll be placing a wallet-sized photo of her on the announcement and then will attach the information. I think they're super cute, but I'm biased... :)
Cheri's also working on a piece of art that says "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty..." We love that Scripture and speak it over our little Liberty everyday. Just a start, but hey... I'm stoked!
More Updates to come...
So, I spent this past weekend in Georgia, where I spent time with my fantastic sisters-in-law (my brothers-in-law are pretty cool too, but not nearly as cool as the girls) and we spent time shopping for home-decor and baby items! I am so very thankful to have these two ladies in my life. They are my pillar when I kinda wanna give up and my accountability in most heart-matters. :) Not to mention, Cheri is ridiculously amazing at art & decorating and inspires me to be more creative. I've decided to take up scrapbooking and card-making thanks to her. (Woop, Woop!) So, I'll be blogging about that soon enough. Priscilla is my ear in matters of the heart and I love her sooo much for it. I wanted to take a little corner in cyberspace to say thank you to my amazing sisters-in-law. <3 align="center">Priscilla :)
