dearpomegranates The girl and I are enjoying our dandy blend. She likes her's as a strong cup of tea with honey. I like mine as a 'black coffee'. 2w

dearpomegranates I'm cheating a little. @namastetiff tagged me for one #fromthecuttingroomfloor. This photo I actually posted on @lulu_pine in full format but I had to share. It's one of my best photos of her but that's not the only reason why I'm sharing it. She's getting older and the battle of wills is getting stronger. She has much to learn still but I can't deny that I have much to learn in mothering her. We are so different and so alike. I pray that I do right by her, not just for my sake or her daddy's sake but for Christ's sake. I pray that His grace will prevail, His glory be shown. 3w

dearpomegranates It was my mom's birthday this week. Today the girl and I made her an Italian cream cake with chocolate ganache. The ganache was runny, part of the cake broke, the dusted sugar melted into the ganache and it was a labor of love and fighting. But we did it. And it was delicious (especially with toasted pecans in the cake and ganache). Thank you Nattie for helping me and bearing with me. And here's to my Mom! Happy birthday to you and may He continue to bless you in years to come! 3w

dearpomegranates I have three IGs. This one, @lulu_pine (more portraits and everyday things of my kids & other things) and @piningco (a project on minimalism and natural objects). However, I do have one @vsco grid which has featured pictures from both here and @piningco. Today I'm honored that a third photo has been selected to be featured on #VSCOGrid. This one I originally posted in full frame on @lulu_pine. I'm pretty stoked about it. #tbt of Finn having fun in the rain, who actually stood still long enough for this photo. And I love the bigness of his coat with the slim silhouette of his @alpinebabyco leggings. Can't wait for rainy weather again! 3w

dearpomegranates But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness. --Psalm‬ ‭69‬:‭13‬ ESV
So much changing, so much wondering. Feeling a little scared and a little excited. Scared when my human emotions and reasonings fill my head but excited because He is above all that. He can move mountains. He can open doors. He can provide. Everything will make sense eventually but oh the waiting. Answer us soon God. Make way Your path for us. //morning thoughts and this scene from our Portland trip earlier this year for #fromthecuttingroomfloor as tagged by @pnw_courtney and @naomigal

dearpomegranates @danceypantsdisco invited me to share one #fromthecuttingroomfloor. I often don't post pictures of me (which was funny when my husband and I were meeting new friends through @Instagram when we went to Portland earlier this year. I didn't realize they may not know what I look like!) I scrolled through the phone and this photo just brought me such delight, I knew I had to share it. Nothing epic in landscape or scenery, just a fun and silly moment with my little. I actually don't even remember when we took this but I'm very happy we did. If you would like to join, I invite @wildhobbitjam @mytinytribe @ozarkmamadeer 4w

dearpomegranates I'm sitting in the backyard watching Finn run around. It's still morning and the clouds are thick and covering most of the sky. It's not hot yet, there's still a freshness in the air lingering. It's that air that reminds me of camping, of trees, of autumn. My sweet new friend @mrswolma tagged me for #fromthecuttingroomfloor. As I think of Fall I remember the children dressed up for Halloween. Nattie was a fox and even in this photo, age 9, I can see her childhood rushing by. It does go by so fast and I want to do all I can to make it beautiful. #widn tagged by @oregonmama is this. Pondering, looking ahead, trusting in Jesus and being sentimental. 1mon
  •   simplelittleamy Oh my gosh, such a sweet photo. And funny enough, my littles dressed up last night and were playing Halloween! Must be something in the air... 1mon

dearpomegranates This morning I am full of thankfulness, elation and awe. Never in a million years would I have thought that I would find an astounding community of women who inspire and encourage me daily as a mother, right here on an app called @Instagram. Words are insufficient right now but I can't believe that some of these women have prayed for me and made possible for me to attend the first @wildandfree.co conference coming this September. His love is so big and expands so wide and I'm in awe. Thank you thank you thank you! To Him first, who opens doors and to all who have friended me and shown me love. I'm truly excited! I will be the one with a permanent smile beaming from my face and with an endless amount of hugs for the taking! 1mon

dearpomegranates Summer schooling this week didn't work out so well. I'm trying not to get too hard on myself for it. It is Summer. The heat's beginning to rise too, so it's about keeping cool and having fun. Even when it doesn't look like it ;)

  •   kelseynormz Miss you guys 1mon

  •   gretchen.leah Thanks for the tag sweet friend. 1mon
  •   ainsl3y Oh yes, definitely don't be too hard on yourself. This summer our schooling has flown out the window in lieu of staying cool and making memories 1mon
  •   hamdencrew Summer school?! What's that?! I had every intention of having some sort of structure...it never happened. It's totally fine though! I know these kids of ours will be just fine. Even better than that actually! 1mon

dearpomegranates Inspired by a Facebook post from @rebeccaartemisa, a favorite artist of mine, I journaled yesterday with words and pictures. Drawing and creating is a huge part of who I am and I think this will be a wonderful way to journal bits and pieces of my life and fulfilling the artist in me. It reminds me of my younger days, drawing in all my journals but I like the intentionality of remembering things through drawing. So, here I go. #drawjournaling
Ps. The house drawing was inspired by a recent post by @holyfarmer's new house/mill. It's amazing.
