So close, yet so far away.


I love details.. I love the tiny lines, the tiny specks, the intense color. Things you have to look at really closely to notice.. beauty waiting to be seen. To stop and take that second look, to study a little more closely. I think God loves detail.. I think he makes it so that we don’t just pass by and glance at his creation but actually stop for a moment to really look at it. To really enjoy it. If you’re not looking for it, you’ll miss it. If you’re focused on things you need to do, places to go, problems weighing you down and just glance at the world around you.. you won’t see it. I think he wants us to search it out. To seek it. And that’s why he hides it. He wants us to take the focus off of ourselves and problems and such, and focus on beauty.. His creation.. singing it’s praises to their Maker.

Birthday, cupcakes, tulips and… a parrot?

My birthday was on the 10th, and my family loves birthdays. We seriously do. It’s an event, a celebration.. time to be together and have fun.. do things we don’t normally do. My family really went all out for me and it made me feel so loved.
They know how much I adore cupcakes.. so that was the theme. And spring. Tulips.. hyacinths. :)

The name places were real tulips in miniature pots. The “dirt” was chocolate bunches. I probably ate a 1/4 of my dirt before dessert.

We played Yahtzee. I got second! And I never even got a yahtzee. And here’s where the Parrot comes in. See him on my dad’s back? His name is Tarzan.

He’s not very smart. He dances though. Makes you laugh like a fool cuz it looks so funny and cute. He’s a show off.
Like I said, they know my love for cupcakes. Check out the wrapping paper! Its just edible. :)


My cake. My littlest sister made it.. isn’t is beautiful?

All these pictures are iPhone.. as I forgot my camera at home. I’m starting to realize I do that a lot. =/ Anyway.. I had such a wonderful party with my amazing family.. I hope you all are blessed to have a family who loves you like mine does me.
Keep calm and have a cupcake!

Easter eggs, fluffy baby chicks and the Easter bunny.


Our life group had an easter egg hunt and party last week. It was a lot of fun, and the kids loved it. The excitement as they dashed around picking up eggs was enough to make you laugh.. it was so cute.

And the hunt begins!

After all the eggs were picked up and deposited in their darling little baskets, they took turns holding the cutest little chicks.


The guys took a liking to the chicks too. :)

Then the discovering of treasures inside of the eggs; chocolate, candy, bracelets and other little delights.


And last but not least.. the Easter bunny!


I think Baby wanted to eat the bunny…

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
And then that darkest of nights, and the fiend we call DEATH were powerless.
And my Beloved…
AROSE.

Boone, NC


My mom, sisters and I took a girls trip to Boone to watch the famous outdoor drama, “Horn in the West” We got to tour some old settler’s cabins and watch people re-enacting living during that era. It was facinating! There’s no photography allowed during the drama so if you click on the link above it will take you to their website so you can see some photos.



We found this charming little health food cafe in downtown Boone..

The most delicious veggie burger ever – and I really mean it.. it was DELISH!


And just to clarify, the cup was made out of corn, not the coffee. The coffee was amazing!
