The Day We Met Our Josie Loree

No other night had ever felt like this one; the night before we met our Josie Loree. My whole life I had dreamt of her. Olive skin, brown hair, and blue eyes. I didn’t have blue eyes, but knew my husband would. For years, I thought about our life together. The cuddles, the kisses, playing in the park. We’d play dress up together, and she would walk around the house in mommy’s fanciest pair of shoes, wrists sparkling with bracelets. I couldn’t wait to see her, hold her, kiss her, and love her with every fiber of my being. I already did. Laying in bed, with a belly so big, I still can’t believe it was me. All I could do is think about the next morning. It had never been so hard to shut my eyes and drift into dreamland, until I realized that my sweetest dream would come true in just hours. So for one more night, I dreamt of her. Cuddled up next to the man who I adore, the daddy of my Josie, we slept, and before our sleep could become sound, our alarm rang. It was time. Time to meet our Josie. Our beautiful, precious, Josie Loree.

Colorful Cacti & A Tiny Turban

2016-07-16_00012016-07-16_00112016-07-16_00092016-07-16_00102016-07-16_00042016-07-16_00052016-07-16_00082016-07-16_00062016-07-16_00072016-07-16_00122016-07-16_0013Summertime is full swing here, in Texas! We’ve hit the triple digits, and the only thing that sounds nicer than jumping in cold, blue pool, is grabbing a snow cone on the way! Texas summers are different than most, and not in the best of ways. An early morning shower, leads to a sticky afternoon, leaving me dreaming of a dryer place than this. A land where cacti grow like weeds, and colorful ones at that. A magical desert at it’s finest. This little number caught my eye, the moment I walked into my favorite shop on the square, Landry Kate! Just when the style of the dress couldn’t get any cuter, the pops of pastel pink and turquoise won me over! Also, how sweet is my girl in her tiny turban from Charming Damsel?!

The types of spots that bring back fond childhood memories, yet leave you dreaming of all the places you’ve yet to adventure, at the very same time. A peaceful place where the shade of paint on the walls tells you to rest, in all of it’s soothing splendor. The whitest of mints, with a name just as simple as that. Treasures big and small, with a history all their own. Pastels, next to pastels, paired with elegant gold pieces inspired by the days where quality mattered most, and detail was a close second. A place you don’t really care to leave, anytime soon, and the hanging of your coat, means a warm cup of coffee, and sincere conversation, is just around the corner. A patchwork quilt welcomes tots, and their toys, just the same, and the lyrics you know by heart, make for words to ponder on as they linger in the air. The smell of Lavender Macarons invite you to settle in and stay awhile. A space just like this, now hosts me for hours a day, and guests, whenever they please. I’ll edit here and there, watching lovely stories unfold, kissing my baby girl in-between computer clicks, and thanking to Lord for not a moment missed with her. It’s square feet such as this that set butterflies loose to soar, and the give the feeling, deep down in your soul, “it is well!”
