I'm not sure where, who, what...I've never been here in this season of my life.
I've never been 28 (almost) I've never been a college graduate (almost) I've never been so confused about what to do with my life... 
Frustrating to say the least when I feel like totally abandoning all my plans because they are just not what I want anymore as far as career wise and my education. It is just seeming a little overwhelming. 
I've aspired to be this great blogger, but I have not blogged like I've wanted. 
Honestly getting on here talking about my soul searching has not really seemed appealing to me. I guess because I am not sure what to write! LOL 
I have had everything planned out... but my parents were right it seems, the older you get the less you know or have figured out. 
I keep thinking about graduating. What will I do with my life? What do I really want to do? 
I've always struggled with the what I want to do compared to what I SHOULD do? I usually have …

Italian Romance

I've been doing this fabulous devotional that I cannot wait to share with you all. 

It has challenged me as being a wife for sure. I decided that I wanted to show my husband extravagantly love. I work hard to love like Christ would, but sometimes I think as wives we forget our marriages are to be examples of the love of the church and God. 
I was just really inspired to do something for my Josh.... 
An Italian Romantic Dinner. 
Now, I'm not a Paula Deen, Emeril Lagasse, and others... 
I do have some awesome recipes passed to me and I can be inventive :)

Easy Canvas Prints Giveaway!

Hello my fellow bloggers! To celebrate this new season of getting back into the swing of things, and thanking you for sticking with me, we are having a giveaway! 
I was connected with Easy Canvas Prints through another blogger. I had the opportunity to review their product. 
I received a 16x20 canvas, and I LOVE it! I have always admired canvas prints and now I'm excited to have one of my own!
Easy Canvas Prints was so easy to use! The website was very clear and user friendly. 
I love that I was able to see a preview while designing my canvas. There are several options to how you want your canvas designed! Here is a picture of my canvas: 

I love how it turned out!! 
I think my favorite part was when I ordered this picture there was a problem with the resolution and I was notified before my print was made. They sent me a file telling me how to make sure that this resolution will work. That was great! The problem was resolved quickly. 
Way to have excellent customer service! 
So g…

Ijams Nature Center

J and I love finding new things to do in East Tennessee! 
We had talked about going to Ijams  Nature Center before and on Thursday we went there in a moment of spontaneity. I am so glad we we did! 
What a great place! It is beautiful! Anyone that knows me, knows that I am not a nature person. Nor to do I like anything that is crawly, has little legs, makes webs, sneaks up on ... *SHIVER*
Any who... it was impressive. They have a little museum with all sorts of neat stuff!  There are several trails to walk and places to explore!
I love Jo's Grove! It was a exploration area for children! Well... we are not children but we explored anyway! :)

It was a great afternoon! We are definitely going back- when it is cooler and I have more appropriate clothing :)
Have a great day!
