Blonde. Layers. Tomorrow is FRIDAY!


Tomorrow is Friday- hallelujah! This afternoon I needed a pick me up and luckily they had an opening at my favorite salon ever. I would have my hair done at J.CON Salon and Spa daily if I could. Instead, I settle for once a month or so ;) 


Susannah and Tiffany Marie are the BEST!

Mountains. Ulcers... and saying NO.




Right now I am majorly clinging to this truth. In this season of life that I'm in I have to remind myself that I want God's best for me. Not what I think is best for me. As much as I want what I want and I want it NOW, that doesn't mean that it's God's best for me or that he wants me to have it now. 

We live in this word of instant gratification and it isn't good. The Amazon Prime generation. I want what I want, when I want it. 

My phone case says "I AM VERY BUSY"...and I am. Busyness isn't something to brag about. But for me, it shows an imbalance and inability to say no. I say yes to others and no to myself. I say yes to others and no to my God. I say yes to others and no to GOD'S BEST. God's best isn't a busy, frazzled girl, his best is a girl who is rested in him. A peaceful, balanced, healthy God girl. 
It took getting an ulcer recently and having to really pause to realize that I can't do it all. When your doctor and nurse best friend are both telling you that you need to rest to prevent a stomach bleed (what?!) then you know you need to stop. What a blessing in disguise. 

So if you need me, I'll be laying low...and saying no.
