Welcome, April!

“Spring shows what God can do

with a drab and dirty world.”

If I haven’t mentioned, I adore living in rural North Carolina (where we live September thru May-we are still spending our summers in our beach cottage in Michigan, I know that’s confusing).

It is so beautiful and peaceful here, I have almost forgotten about my previous loves Target and Starbucks.

But I wouldn’t trade this landscape for the best latte in the world.

Take that, Dollar Spot.

Sweet, sweet spring, do not be soon to part.

Oh Carolina, we are delighting in your every sundrenched, flower-filled day.


  1. I wouldn’t trade it for Starbucks either!! Did you read what they’ve said about people against equality? I did RIGHT after I bought 3 boxes of Starbucks K-Cups, shoot!!

    By the way, I need your address in NC!

  2. I have been thinking a lot about this post since you first posted it. I am a stay at home mama to three small children. I want so much to provide a simple life for my family. I too find a bouquet of God’s craftmanship over anything Target has to offer. I constantly have to remind myself while in Target or HomeGoods for that matter that while all these things are lovely, I don’t want to potentially work outside the home to get all of these pretty “things”. I love your blog and thank you for the simple living you show. That one can still have great style, a great life and it isn’t purchased. Thanks for showing yours soul’s desire for Kingdom work.
