The verse on my fridge currently reads:

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
    you make my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
    surely I have a delightful inheritance.

Psalm 16:5-6

It has been a constant reminder to rejoice in the good and bad that this year has brought.

After having a serious poison ivy reaction and my whole face blew up to twice its size (yes, I was like something out of a movie), the nerve in my tooth dying, which caused extreme nerve pain, my IG account was suspended due to a glitch, and we moved ourselves. Yes, you read that right! After the movers we hired in Atlanta, GA, left after an hour complaining that it was “TOO HOT,” me, Reid and the kids packed up a semi-truck and a half bound for sunny California. Even Levi helped! We were wiped.

Later, I found out that I bulged the disc in my back from that move but didn’t feel the full affects until two months later. Moving right along, I found a lump in my breast so I’l be getting an MRI, and endured throbbing back pain from sciatica nerves, all that to say, it’s BEEN A YEAR.

Have you had a similar year?

The verse reads:

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
    you make my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
    surely I have a delightful inheritance.

I’m not writing you to complain but rather highlight the fact that pain is God’s microphone. In the dark days of pain and trying to find relief, I found myself closest to my heavenly Father.

Can you relate to a dark time of pain, loss or sadness?

We are where we want to be, settled in the west coast, however renting. We are grateful God graciously brought us back despite the competitive housing market and many details surrounding moving seven people cross country. Reid and I still have the itch to renovate and pine after the killer views in our old house in Pasadena. However, SOOOOO happy to be back in Cali, working.

God is good, how about you, how has your year been?

I have the privilage of going to the LTK conference this week and I’m bringing this care e on set. SoCal turned chilly this week, is that fall? Either way, I’m loving the need for a puffer jacket.

I look forward to soaking up new experiences, learning new skills and making new friendships. It is never too late.

Fall fashion: a pop of Red

by Shalice Noel

This fall you’d have to live under a rock to not see that RED is the color of the season. Here are 11 excuses to bring it into your wardrobe. Maybe you have a favorite maxi skirt and need a red bomber to make the outfit pop. I see lots of French vibes and I love it. Do as the French, and add that much needed pop of red.

How would you add it?

I fell in love with so many pieces from Abercrombie like satin skirt! I’ve been looking for one that is long enough, and without a slit. I LOVE these pieces. I included the sizes I tried on.

How’s your week? I’ve busy planning Levi’s first birthday party, managing school, work and it has been a full week! Shop my vest, blazer and pants look here in direct links and shop the post widget. I love hearing from you all. I compiled 3 big parenting tips that helped my week go more smoothly. Could you add one or two? I’d love to hear from you.

More plaid blazers

3 parenting tips for this week:

  1. Make a special snack or dessert. We picked up the cinnamon roll cake box from Trader Joes and it was not only a huge hit but also a motivation to finish school work and chores.
  2. Put music on! I play classical or praise music. It sets the tone at home.
  3. Give your teen and yourself grace. The truth is, you’re both going through a lot of changes. The challenges our teens face in school, and even physically are a lot. Our teens especially faces a lot of change with a cross country move (read more about that here). I had to preach to myself this week to give myself and my children grace. There is peace in that affirmation. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength – Phil 3:14.

It’s your turn, how could you add to this list, anything positive happened this week that happened as a result of a new habit or a new encouragement? I’d love to hear.

Most of you know that I’ve been a Misa Los Angeles fan for a LONG time. What’s not to love about this dress. It has a killer pattern, bell sleeves, and perfect length to wear with pumps or boots. Did I mention that it also works great with a denim jacket? Well, it does. If you see me at Gjelina in Venice wearing it, say hi.

Hope I have convinced you in these 6 sentences, if not, try it for yourself. Sizes sell out fast.

The next hardest decision will be, twiggy dress with a blazer or denim jacket?

TWIGGY DRESS in size small
