lizmariegalvan Tonight we caught the sunset as we were on our walk across the drawbridge. I still can't believe we are lucky enough to live right down the road from this. God has really blessed us these past few months in more ways than we even know. Little reminders like this of God's awesome power make me overwhelmed with happiness. Happy Sunday everyone!! 10h

lizmariegalvan Sometimes a simple centerpiece of a basket, some pumpkins, and a candle is perfect for fall decor. I'm loving the simplicity of our coffee table right now. 17h

lizmariegalvan As we were leaving our house today I looked back at it and had a longing in my heart that we could stay in this beautiful white historic home forever, but next month we have to say goodbye. That's going to be one hard goodbye. So many good memories here, at least we get to keep those. 2d

lizmariegalvan A few weeks ago I decorated our dining room for early fall with neutrals. Today on the blog I shared our more colorful rustic fall dining room that's perfect for Thanksgiving. See the full room on the blog: lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile. What do you think of the pops of orange? 3d

lizmariegalvan You know those friends that inspire you & make you laugh the whole time you are with them? I got to spend the day with that friend of mine today & I feel so blessed. & how fitting that we sat in a church courtyard watching her baby boy play in the grass while we talked about how God was moving in our lives. Today was pretty perfect & I'm very thankful for days like today. 4d

lizmariegalvan It's national pregnancy & infant loss awareness day. Today we are remembering our three beautiful babies that we had to say goodbye to before we even got to hold them. They will never be forgotten no matter how happy our lives are & they will always be our children no matter how long they had here on earth. Mr. LMB & I are thankful for their short lives & we thank God for the opportunity to be pregnant no matter how it ended. We've had this candle lit all day in remembrance of our three babies that God is now holding up above. 1 in 4 pregnancies ends in miscarriage. That means it's happened to a lot of us or someone we are close to. Tonight at 7pm light a candle in remembrance of all these babies in our lives that are now in heaven. Hugs to all you mommies who have lost a child, I pray you all have peace in your hearts today & everyday. 5d

lizmariegalvan I am SO EXCITED to announce that our last home here in NC has a full feature in the Holiday Home issue of @thecottagejournal magazine!!!! Mr. LMB & I are both so humbled by this amazing feature because it shares our story of being a military couple, but also because it's an amazing way to keep our memories of that home that we loved so much. I may have shed a few tears when I was flipping through the pages. It is just so cool to see the full house tour in a magazine along with all of the DIY projects we did to that house & a month before we say goodbye to the military life & NC all together. We just loved that little green house of ours! You can see all of the details on the blog & I'm also giving away a years subscription to The Cottage Journal & a few Holiday Home issues: lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile. I'm also sharing another secret on the blog that I've been keeping for a year. I can't wait to hear what you think!! Thank you for always supporting me & stopping by my little blog... It means the world to me! 5d
  •   lizmariegalvan Thank you so so much @mrs_laurenmcmullen! I love following your story too... Military life is amazing. Being a military wife was such an honor. I'm sad our military life is ending, but watching yours just beginning is a joy! 5d

  •   madizzle_fo_shizzle @lizmariegalvan I'm going to a little sad when you move too, haha. I started following you not only because I love your design style, but because I realized you lived in/near Jacksonville, which is my birth town. Congrats on the spread! Wishing you many blessings! 3d
  •   mrs_laurenmcmullen @lizmariegalvan you're so sweet. It truly is an honor & it's a privilege to meet others like you and your hubby that have been on the same journey! Can't wait to see all what The Lord has in store for you in this new season 3d

lizmariegalvan It's Mum Fest here in Newbern this weekend! We are loving that we live downtown for it this year. The cutest vendor award goes to @thegogirlshoppe for her sweet little camper filled with goodies! I found some treasures from her already & I'm going back for more! If you are in eastern North Carolina, the Mum Fest is a must see! Ps. See me digging for treasures in the trailer? Better get there quick before I hoard it all. 1w

lizmariegalvan I made it back to NC & even though I wish I could have stayed in Michigan to work on our house I am so happy to be back in our historic home with my man & my pups. Before I left I ordered this to do list from @studio9co to help keep me organized. I am not always the best at being organized & this next month is going to be insane with our big move coming up on top of everything else. Hopefully making lists will help keep me on track with what needs to be done. Do you have any tips on being organized with your to-do list? I need HELP! Haha oh, and caffeine has been a big help today... Thanks chai for being a good friend! 2w

lizmariegalvan OUR KITCHEN CABINETS ARE INSTALLED!!! Such a big step in completing our Michigan house! Now we need counter tops, tile, paint, flooring, lighting, & a few other important things throughout the house. Think we can do it in six weeks? I do! We have an awesome team working while we are living in NC. I'm heading back to North Carolina now & I'm really happy with all the work I got done this past week with help from family & friends. This trip made me really excited to move to Michigan & make this house our home next month. You can see some pretty amazing "before" photos & some lovely "progress" photos on the blog today: lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile. What do you think of our kitchen progress so far? 2w
