Beautiful Disaster

less housevia

First, if you caught my Kelly Clarkson reference, we could probably be best friends. Second, Things are currently cray for our family. Moving across the country is a son of a bitch. Add two dogs, a toddler, and a pregnant lady. Whoa. Just Whoa. I’m told adventures await. I’m not sure if a serious tornado mere miles away from our new home on day 2 is what I was thinking when I thought of adventures… Say a prayer, if you do that sort of thing, that things will continue to fall into place as we adjust to our new town, house, and life.

Peace out.

Buddha Teas

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetThere is nothing I dig more than finding a new company to love. When Buddha Teas reached out to me, I was all like, “YES! Give me ALL the tea!” Yes, that’s how I talk professional like… I’m a big tea drinker and while I love loose leaf, it’s not always practical, especially whilst chasing a toddler! I’ve recently read a few articles that were quite scary about the nonsense that’s put into many commercial tea and tea bags! It’s shocking! Well, with Buddha Teas you don’t have to worry about that! They are committed to a natural and organic product that is actually natural AND organic. Go figure!! And on top of all their awesomeness they are a San Diego company, located in Carlsbad!! #Winning

I opted for the Divine Immunity Blend and it’s light and delicious. Crisp with a hint of sweetness. When I had a killer sore throat, aka December, I mixed in a spoonful of raw, local honey to help soothe. DE-lish!!!!!

Lastly, can I get an AMEN for the brilliant quote on this particular cup of tea. “Worry seems necessary, but serves no purpose.” Preach Buddha Teas!

Fare Thee Well

IMG_1467 copyI really can’t even believe it… We are no longer residents of SoCal. I’m in a haze of denial that we won’t soon be returning to Sunny Cali back to our church, our friends, and our lives. We had our sweet baby boy while living here and leaving has hit me hard, I’m saying goodbye to the most wonderful hello I’ve ever experienced. I mostly eat chocolate while crying in bed, I may or may not be clothed, but that’s neither here nor there… We are currently in a state of homelessness while we wait to close on our first house and that’s making things a little harder to digest. I feel a bit lost.

I know this is the best thing for our family and I AM excited, but I’m finding myself needing to lean a bit more on God as he guides us through this transition. I hope I can remain open to new friendships and a new season of life. It’s just when you have had it so good, it’s hard to see better.

I can’t believe how lucky I have been to meet and know the beautiful people I call friends. Some of the most caring and giving souls I’ve ever met. Thank you. To all of the amazing friends that in their own way changed my life. Made me better. Made me stronger. Made me funnier. Made me happier. Made me, Me.

Thanks Boos.
