taunyaelise We only have two ornaments on our tree this year. Two that Ellie made in school and brought home and quickly placed. That's all..... We just haven't gotten around to it.... However, As we've walked by it each day. We say, it's really pretty with no ornaments. It's pure. Simple. Light.....after feeling lousy the last couple days from not feeling like I am doing enough to bring the Christmas spirit here, I had this thought .... This year our tree is solely representing "the light of Christ". It's beaming with beauty. And not muddled with things. It's the core of who we are and as long as we have that and know that- we shine bright!! The decorations of life are beautiful and often necessary. But if we have a strong lit core, Christ centered light, even when the decorations are stripped away, our light stands alone and is "enough"... It's simple beauty has turned my heart and has given me an overwhelming feeling and hug from my Heavenly Father saying, You are doing enough. You are enough." 1w

taunyaelise Wouldn't this be the cutest little Christmas tree? It's a Rosemary plant I found at Walmart for $3. Cool. I'm putting together a Christmas table setting. I'll prob place one on each plate. Maybe a star on top? Add a little hint of red somewhere? Hmm.... 🌲 2w

taunyaelise "Last" does not mean forever. Here's the scoop..... Life has been shifting for. some. time. now. In a nutshell, Ive taken a few steps aside from my business/jewelry path and found this beautiful place of full time mom and wife (and excitedly building a house, being @haydn_olsen music manager and watching lots of sports:). It's been my dream the past 18 years of career and biz, to grow it to a point where it would sustain itself so that I could be at home and be the mom I dreamed of. I prayed for it daily. Asked for help in designing a way for me to do just that..... Looking back, the plan was: use your talents, love others, work smarter not harder, and most importantly (which I am so grateful to have learned): PRAY, listen, be willing to move forward in HIS way. It's been amazing. The growth. The confidence. The adventure filled ride of success and failure, ultimately: "accomplishing what I set out to do." ....I love jewelry design and anything creative. It's in me. It's just placed differently in my heart for now. I will still host events. Swiss Days, yes. But the day to day businessy grind has been left in the dust. And that makes me the happiest mom and wife ever!!! I love this role. It's more important to me than anything else....I feel like I've built and built and now soaking in a day of rest.ahhh... My entire core is being strengthened and filled to the brim with new thoughts, dreams, spiritual guidance, family values, and yes, artistic adventures (in due time).....I'm not done yet!! In fact my spirit of discovery is soaring!! And just BEING, at the same time. (Go figure). Life is good. My family needs me. And I need them. I'm right where I want to be. HE knows and wants to bless us with the desires of our hearts. I am grateful !!......ok, The end. #latergatorpic 3w

taunyaelise Wiser words than I think my 9 yr old realizes. To her, she meant our physical move from So Jo to Heber..... But when she said It, she was straight faced and looked me in the eyes as if there were more, "It's the every day. Take part in all that our lives offer. Try new things. Let your mind search learn and find more. Move. Do. Don't get caught in the mundane. Enjoy the simple yet break for the big. Or, subdue the busy and reach for peace. Whatever your season, embrace, grow and enjoy the journey!! 4w
