the wilderness memoirs : God had a plan to save me first

i crave quiet much like i do coffee in the morning

the kind of quiet where no one is clamoring for my time
nothing is pressing on me
no emails, phone calls, instagram, Facebook or etsy conversations
no cleaning and laundry
to-do lists and errands

my wilderness memoirs

just uninterrupted time to unravel just a bit of my heart
to take a deep long breath
inhaling what God is doing all around me
God-wind goosebumps all around me
and i want to swim in it
i don’t want to miss it
i want to express to Him how grateful i am…does He know?  O God!!!

mms milk-paint chippy chandelier makeover


i was not born a natural diy’er
my love for the art & soul of creating my very own home has evolved into a passion..where only jesus and food come before it

diy miss mustard seed milk paint ( in linen ) chandelier.  Philippians 4:7-8 sign...good words to see each and every morning! old door turned headboard..drop cloth bedskirt

call it a mid-life crisis or just getting closer to dying but i am becoming a risk-taker and adventurer seeker in my middle age.
making intentional choices to make the art of living courageously a lifestyle.

sooo i just figured my best bet would be to just be “me” here each all my awkward authentic glory
the words of maya angelou come to mind when i think of my purpose here each month

“When you learn, teach, when you get, give.”
