peace of mind

i promise it won't always be doom and gloom over here, but this blog is the best place for me to express
my truest feelings. its easier for me to write than to talk. thank you for reading, praying, and caring for our family. 

we decided in october that we'd love to have a simple holiday season. and we have had to say "no" (which is so hard, right?) to lots of fun parties, trips, and events that would take away from our simple.

we are staying home this christmas. it feels so good! there's something so relaxing about the twinkling of our christmas tree lights, warm socks, and a peaceful echo of christmas music throughout the house. (my blood pressure is dropping just typing about it.)

some holiday favorites i'm enjoying on this cold morning:

she has the best nail contests! upload yours to win her
custom made nail polish. 

2. Christy Nockles
beautiful music. 
holy roar. amazing grace. 

3. S'mores Cookies!
don't these look delish?! we're having a cookie exchange at work, and these look to good not to try!! 

happy tuesday friends. stay warm, stay peaceful in this busy, bustling time. 

 Aim for restoration, 
comfort one another,
agree with one another, 
live in peace
and the God of love and peace will be with you."
2 Corinthians 13:11
