We have moved!

I am so excited to announce that we have moved! This blog started a long time ago just to keep family in the loop on our first born. Then it became how we shared our adoption journey with all of you! As you walked though our adoption with us, I grew so fond of this space. The community I saw forming with you guys was so precious to me. I loved getting to process life and hear stories of what God was teaching you. Since bringing E home, life has been so fast pace. We have continued to say yes to God in big areas of our lives and therefore have had many changes this past year. Although I wanted to blog about those things along the way, it was just too much to process. I am so excited about re-purposing this blog, giving it more of a focus now that our adoption is over and sharing with all of you what God has done this past year, and what he continues to do. I hope you follow along! 

So, this blog is moving over to

After a little while I will delete this blog altogether. So save the new address and sign up to follow me with your reader or just by email. Have a great day and I look forward to hearing from you!

Under Construction

We survived the craziness that was 2012 and I can not wait to process it with you as well as share my new vision for 2013.
I have many goals for this little space and have missed all of you so badly!
Stay tuned and be looking for me!
I will resurface with some exciting things by the end of this week! Working hard to relaunch asap!

Breaking Silence: Transition

If you asked me, I'd tell you that I have missed this little space so badly.
That I know I have been silent and have written so many posts in my head each and every day.
That there is so much to tell you guys about... so much to process... so much that it seems impossible.

If you asked me, I would tell you that saying yes to God no matter what, is the most exciting, adrenalin pumping, challenging, difficult, stretching and beautiful thing I have ever done.
That this season He has asked a lot of our little family.
That we have chosen to say yes.
And that we look forward to the radical changes in our lives as a result.

If you asked me, I would tell you that adopting, selling your house, living with family, moving into a new house, planting a church and having a baby feels like too much.
That there are days that my heart is so overwhelmed I can hardly breath.
But that it is in these days... these moments... that I have come to know my Savior so much more intimately.

If you asked me, I would tell you that He does indeed give you the grace you need for each day.
That He truly does only give you what you can handle, and that I have seen him protect me from things that would have broken me.
That living in complete dependence on God opens up such beauty in relationships.

If you asked me, I would tell you that in this season I have been overwhelmed with gratefulness for the friends and family God has brought along side of us.
That it is in them, that I tangibly see Christ each and every day.
Friends who have become much more like family...
and family who have become so much more than that.

If you asked me, I would tell you that Christ is worth it.
Every single bit of the crazy that He might be calling you to.

I know that many of you have been praying for us in this season of transition, and I can not thank you enough.
I'm working hard to break my silence this week.
I have many things to update you on, and many stories to share.
Please ask me your questions.
It helps me go from thoughts swirling around in my head, to published on this blog.

I look forward to my online sample sale tomorrow night for Noonday!
And almost even more, I look forward to sharing pictures of our new house, telling you what God has been doing in my heart lately, and showing you pictures of the progress we are making in sweet Della's nursery.

If you asked me, I would tell you that I love this little space.
That I look forward to sharing this adventure we are on with you.
And that your comments mean the world to me.

Sample Sale: Date Change and Rules!!!

Due to us moving into a new house this weekend, I am moving my Sample Sale from tonight to Monday Night at 7pm! Don't forget!

Summer Sample Sale Rules:

Welcome to my Summer Noonday Collection online sample sale!  Many of these items are top sellers and I love them dearly, but because each item is handmade, we only have a limited quantity and these have sold out or will soon.

I have about 30 items set to be published at 7pm CST on Monday, August 27th.  Here is how it will work:

  • Each item will be posted separately.  
  • Each item will be tagged as "necklace", "bracelet", etc.  So if you are looking for a specific item, please click on the appropriate tag on the right. 
  • If you want to purchase an item, please leave a comment with your email address.  If you want multiple items, leave a comment on each item.
  • If you see an item up that you want but it has an email address in the comments, go ahead and leave a comment with your email address as that will serve as a "waiting list" if the first person doesn't make their payment in the allotted time.
  • After commenting I will email you a paypal receipt that you can pay for the item via credit card or paypal.
  • You MUST pay for the item within 24 hours of receiving the invoice, or I will re-post the item for sale.
  • I will leave all items up until payment has been received.  I will remove an item once payment has been received.
  • Let me know in your comment if you want to pick it up, meet up, or have me mail it.  I will add $6.00 shipping to your invoice if you request to mail it.
  • Email me at if you have any questions or specific directions for me.
Thanks so much!!
