A few pictures of the changing leaves, I took over the weekend.  Indiana sure does know how to do fall.  You can follow me on Instagram, here.

Have you seen Emily Maynard's wedding?  It is amazing and so inspiring.  The video is even better, I balled all the way through it.

I love finding new blogs, some recent finds are Merrick's ArtAnderson and Grant, and Natalie Creates.

Joanna's home is everything I want in a dream home.

Jacey's 31 days series on Love over Fear is really speaking to my heart this month.

I hope you have a great start to your week!

Time To Be Brave

So much for writing for 31 days, right?!?!?  To be completely honest with you, I have been playing it small.  I have been living in fear, by not posting on this blog, putting it off and just plain not putting the work in.  This needs to change.  

I created this place so I could share my love of design, home, and hospitality.  I wanted this to be a place where others could celebrate and share theirs as well.  I wanted this blog to be a place of community, where people could connect over their homes, faith, and family.  

God has told me to do this, and I have not been faithful. 

My blog has been a dream of mine for a long time.  I dream of it every day, but I would push it to the back and procrastinate.  I would do this because of fear, fear of putting myself out there, of being vulnerable, of failure, of not being loved.  I've got to start overcoming my fears because God's dreams for me are worth more than my fears.  I need to start taking action and stopping letting the fear control my life and stopping me from doing what I am meant to do.  I need to trust that God is intuitive enough to move in and through me no matter my fears or insecurities.  

It's time to overcome my fears and follow my dreams.

So here I go.  I am taking a leap of faith.  I love to share my home, but I've always been scared that people wouldn't like it or want to read, the excuses could go on and on.  God has called me to do this and I want to be obedient.
