Oh yeah and I actually have a job. Hehe! November is jam packed and I wouldn't have it any other way. This time of year lights my heart afire, and I want to prep everything for Christmas diligently to make sure that December is filled with 1000% celebration and joy only! Stress isn't allowed. :) In 2012 we closed on our house during the first days of November, finished college early December, I moved into our home, then we began buying furniture, finished wedding plans, and then got married just a few days after Christmas. Because of that... NEVER AGAIN. I am really passionate about making it a priority to plan for the holidays. I'll be the mom that orders the baby's Halloween costume the day they pop up on the PB Kids website. I know I'm crazy and I'm fine with it. :) 

You may also notice that I want to clear out EVERY space in our home this month. WHAT? With the end of the year approaching quick, I want to declutter and set our little family up for success in the year ahead. If I tackle one or two spaces a week this is totally do-able. :) It's okay if you think I'm a total loony toon. :) I will also note that I'm going to begin praying now that the Lord will provide a clear vision for 2015. (2014 vision here) This year, having a vision and focus for all that I do this year helped me succeed in so many ways. 

Can you tell I'm chatty today? I've missed sharing in this space and have some high hopes of coming back in full swing. There has been a lot about the blogging community that's been discouraging my lately.. but I'm leaving that behind me and focusing on the things and people that fill my heart with joy! Who's with me? :) 

What are y'all thinking about November?


  1. I love seeing you blog again! What perfect November goals you have :) I am right with you on de-cluttering. I almost had a mini heart attack last night because I felt like I needed to deep clean at 10pm.

  2. So sorry to hear that the blogging community has been discouraging you! I'm praying that it all changes for you soon :). Also, that's definitely a pretty big list of goals to accomplish this month, but you got this! Good luck on cleaning out so many spaces...I try but it can get overwhelming quick!


  3. K I love you and I want you to share about this lipstick gospel :)

  4. Love it when a post from you pops up!! :) I had to take several months off from blogging...and it was so good for me. I decided when I came back to not take things so seriously... this is supposed to be fun, after all. I need to tackle every space in our home too! So overwhelming though!!

  5. I'm sorry to hear things have been discouraging for you in the blogging community. After my second blogger meet-up, I was feeling pretty discouraged because a few girls made fun of me to my face. It made me re-evaluate the reality that could be behind the camera lens and if I wanted to continue. I ended up deciding that there are inspiring and happy people everywhere...just as there are unhappy ones. Thanks for being one of the inspiring ones for me and I hope it is all up from here for you!

  6. I am so with you on decluttering the husband's closet and dresser! Austen still has a tote full of clothes from elementary and middle school. It continually cracks me up. I also love your goal of decluttering the entire house. I'm hoping to get ours done by the time the baby comes in February! ;)

    Can't wait to see you later this month!!


  7. Love these pictures and yes our November is so so full too

  8. Sorry about the other bloggers ... Don't listen to them ! I love reading you ! :)
    And good luck for your many November goals ! :)

  9. So exciting! We're trying to figure out next year's big vacation, too, and there are so many possibilities that it's hard to choose just one!! My big goal this month is to get our Christmas cards done and ordered! Ahh!

  10. I LOVED The Lipstick Gospel book!!!!! I nominated your blog for the Lovely Blog award - because you're awesome and you shouldn't let any discouraging bloggers get you down ;)
