Holy Saturday. The in-between mysterious day of quiet and contemplation. Today is so beautiful I could easily sit outside under a breeze-tossed tree, breath deeply the sweet-scented air of blooming flowers, and ponder the mystery of Christ’s love for us all day.
All of our pieces are incredible, but my goodness...every time I see these Zanzibar glass jars, I can’t help but wonder at the creativity of our artisans! - In Zanzibar, Tanzania, our artisans gather recycled wine bottles to create the base of these jars! 😲 The wooden lids are hand-carved from local Mninga wood with traditional techniques and Swahili design. And THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL! You can’t find these beauties at target, that’s for sure 💁🏻♀️
For a very long time, I had three destinations on my travel list: Japan, Russia and America. Last year, I visited Japan and this year I am taking mommy to Russia! I can't wait to ask a waiter whether they have an English menu but continue to speak Russian to Mom 🤣. I am secretly hoping that my reading skills will come back after spending a few weeks there.
“On a scale from 0-10, how much are you enjoying the kids?”⠀ ⠀ Enjoying. It doesn’t come into my mind enough. ⠀ ⠀ As O and I laid on the couch the other day talking about goals and parenthood and all the things, this question came after a long pause from him and was met with one of my own. I think about motherhood all day long. About their hearts. Their vegetables. Their quickness to forgive and the quality of their sleep and intake of vitamins. ⠀ ⠀ I often take the birds eye view of overlooking, teaching and observing rather than diving into the participating. The playing on the floor. The kind of listening where I really want to hear more. Nowhere to rush off to, nothing ‘more important’ pulling my attention. ⠀ ⠀ And remembering all throughout the day that they are 2 and 4 and mine to raise, yes. But also mine to enjoy.
Trail dad, toddler + baby wrangler, partner, husband, and friend. On this 6th anniversary of ours, I’m just here to say that the only guy I want to be with is the one wearing the toddler teddy bear hat 🤣🥰⠀
Y’all, I simply cannot with this Easter cuteness right now! @sincerelyteadams used her custom hoop as the perfect little topper for her sweet babe’s basket and it’s the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen! Truly what dreams are made of *swoons forever*
✖️ marks the spot // Had fun adding some hand stitched details on this latest inspo suite. Loving the juxtaposition of the modern design + wild edges which perfectly suits this collection’s name - Somewhere in Between ◖ // Tap for the mix of handmade paper sources in this beautiful mix // #sourcedgood#stationerydesign
I was feeling very inspired by the beautiful @_ashlee_white_ Easter tablescape and had to recreate it. My only bunny got lost in our last move though🐰how is everyone spending their weekend? We are making lots of time for friends and family!
channeling my inner @asanaandoils 🌙 I love side twisting in down dog. it's such a random movement, but it really helps release the core of all toxins, build up, stored energy, and reveal positive flow in the body. after the stressful storms we have been enduring in the south this season, grounding with yoga has been key for me. I love coming to my mat and just releasing all that i'm carrying. It's another form of meditation and prayer for me - it helps clear my mind and body to allow greater space to be made present for the word of God. this easter weekend I am resting in the knowledge that it is finished & our Lord Jesus has freed us. and also climbing onto my yoga mat to bring me deeper into peaceful awareness of this amazing, undeserving mercy & grace our heavenly father freely gives to each of us.
Rainy Saturdays = photo edits and study sessions 💙💙💙. Love the lighting in the house when its raining . Just took a little break to run to @rebeldogcoffeeco , obviously haha .

Saturday morning walks in Savannah are just the loveliest. 🐇 We can’t believe Easter weekend is already here! It’s one of our very favorite holidays, such a gorgeous celebration of hope and renewal. We’re looking forward to a big southern lunch and an egg hunt on the lawn with family. 🐣 What are your Easter plans?
Since I was a kid I wanted to be a teacher of some sorts. I am not the traditional teacher & teach in my own way, but I love helping others grow. Helping others grow, helps me grow too 🖤 @radphotogsretreat radphotographersretreat.com (new site coming soon) photo by @jenniferloew #niphotobts
