This weekend was gorgeous but the last two days the weather has been gloomy around here. Dillan is off in Texas and I think he took the sunshine with him 😜 there are still plenty of pretty pictures to keep me going until tomorrow when my hubby gets back!!! 😘😘
This morning I was reminded of how the Lord thinks of me. I am His beautiful beloved, washed white as snow. I am clean before Him.
It’s so easy to see my sin and then dwell in it. To bury myself under the weight of it. To pick apart every flaw and piece of myself that I want to change. It’s so dark and lonely.
Why would we cling to the dust of this world when our gracious Father is calling us to come to Him? If we are in Christ then He has already cleansed us. He has adopted us and sees us as beautiful. He has brought us into the light and by His grace and through His Spirit we can live in that light. Life doesn’t have to feel dark and lonely. We don’t have to live in guilt and discontent, always striving to do better. In Christ I am a new creation and you could be too.
“We never fully arrive to the point where we get our mind right for good ending the battle to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. The writer of Hebrews says that sin easily entangles. We have to keep re-focusing our thoughts on Jesus with help from His Holy Spirit. Some days are easier than others. Heck, the "great cloud of witnesses" refers to a list of people found in the previous chapter that all had bad days as well.” •

I’ve been in a funk lately. Results for a huge exam I recently took will be released in less than a month. I’ve failed before, so I’m feeling vulnerable + fearful of what’s to come. Sometimes I wonder whether I chose the right career path & if it’s all worth it. Of course I love writing and insta has been a huge comfort / escape from real life, but I’m scared to face my uncertain future.
To all those stuck in that funky transitional stage: I’m with you. I read a quote on Pinterest recently, “your path is beautiful and crooked and just as it should be”✨✨
If life was perfect, it would not only be boring, but also not as meaningful. 🦋🦋
Hang in there✨

Springtime in the Alps 🏔 wearing the #TAHeverydayclutch#therogueessentials#travelwithtah ✨✨✨ LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME
I was named after a famous Shirley Temple movie titled ‘Heidi’ - based on the book by Johanna Spyri about a girl that lived in the Swiss Alps with her Grandfather (the story is much more dramatic, but you’ll have to read to find out more). My Mom was so enchanted by the flick that she named me ‘Heidi’ in hopes I’d be as sweet and spunky as Heidi in the mountains. When I first visited Switzerland over 10 years ago, it proved that I was more like the fictional character than anyone knew. I fell in love with the mountains & Switzerland and couldn’t wait to go back and it finally happened 10+ years later!
I keep telling my sister in law how I feel like that Kermit the Frog meme. The one where he is looking back and forth..like where the hell am I?! We are feeling insanely blessed to be living in such a gorgeous place. Wandering around smelling flowers and trees and not having anyone yell at you as you’re walking is so great. We really are appreciating all of the little things right now. Like a cute little bench, at the top of a hill, where we can rest and enjoy our new home. #bernsteinsinptown
Creating that space within where things are still, even if only for a moment ✨
It's been a busy last six months at LM with the start of the company, attending the first of several markets, and refining a vision that will inspire the next six months to keep moving forward with new opportunities, creations and refinements of current projects. Amidst the business, what is currently being demanded is a small break, a week a way from the work surrounding by nature. Planning a trip to Costa Rica or California in the next few weeks. If you had to choose one, which would it be!? 🌴🙏🏻
I can’t believe I got this shot. This little girl did NOT like being naked, and trust me when I say, she let us all know it. And that’s okay. I always tell parents, “I’m on baby time” so if she needs another feeding, snuggle or changing break, that’s what we’re going to do. Please don’t ever feel like you have to apologize for your baby being a baby. I promise I enjoy every minute of it. Especially when I get a snuggle in the process. ☺️

Working on starting my day with the Lord more than I start it with the world. When I rise, before I go about my day, I want to make sure I am focused and my mind is right. I want to bring God into my the first part of my day so it can set the tone for the rest of the day. Do you start your day with God??
It’s officially Earth day today 🌏There are so many things we can do to help protect our planet. Even the most simplest of ways like walking/biking more instead of using a car. Recycling or even planting a tree 🧡
