I Come From:


  • Trips to England every Summer to visit extended family. 
  • Baskets of prayer journals from my college years.
  • A two sibling home, with a brother who is a golfing champion.
  • The same school district, deep in the heart of Texas, from Kinder to graduation day. 
  • Insecurity and doubt that is covered by the Lord's grace.
  • A loving husband who caught my eye at a high school youth camp. (yep. real life.)
  • A wonderful college experience at Texas A&M University, as a member of Kappa Alpha Theta.
  • long, curly hair that used to cause tears when my mom brushed out all the tangles.
  • Mission trips to Mexico, Romania, and Seattle. Sharing the good news of Jesus to others.
  • A birthplace of Paris, France.
  • Getting my first sister at age twenty one.
  • A wonderful Youth Group experience.
  • Too many trips to see Twilight during my senior year of high school with a dear friend.
  • Learning more about prayer during a year serving Breakaway Ministries than any other point in my life.
  • Desire for a home that welcomes and nurtures its guests.
  • My first blog, "Bonjour Victoria"
  • Watching The Parent Trap a thousand times, the remake.
  • Dressing up as a dolphin trainer for elementary school career day. 
  • Not liking chocolate cake or ice cream.
  • Early morning breakfasts with "the friend group."
  • A small town that became home long before I got married and moved here. 
  • Only experiencing large family holidays in the past few years.
  • A desire to celebrate everything.
  • A financial heart change that has simplified and blessed our lives.
  • Fancy dresses and socks with decorative lace fold overs, and big hair bows.
  • A heart that is thankful for Christ's love being greater than my weakness.



Note: I'm not planning on participating in this linkup every day, so don't worry about an influx of posts that are different than my usual content. I just thought it might be fun to participate in a different way of community on the internet a few times this month!

  1. I loved your list! I can't think of The Parent Trap without thinking about peanut butter and oreos, haha. That picture is absolutely adorable!
