March On. Literally.





Hello March! So good to see you!
I don't really like winter, and I am so happy when we start feeling the first few signs of spring.
This March will be a super busy month for me - my calendar is already full!

I remember my Granny and great aunt always telling me when I was little that March "Comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb." For some reason I thought that was so cute and cool and I felt like when we entered March, we were on the verge of something awesome!

March has been extra special to me for the past 17 years now because it was 17 years ago tomorrow that my little sister was born! I'm so excited to celebrate. For me, 17 is one of my most memorable and cherished years of life thus far, and I'm hoping that for Ashley it will be the same. :)

ANNND March has been even more special the past two years because March of 2014 brought me a goddaughter...

ANNND this March will bring me a second goddaughter - her little sister!

So much to be excited about this month!





Another thing that really excites me about March is SANDALS!
{ insert corny pun about how you "march" in shoes  }

[[I've been wearing sandals here and there already because I don't always let cold weather stop me (lol) and we have had a few warm days.]]

Many of y'all know I'm a shoe person, and I can't help but notice this adorable peep-toe / suede / fringe spring trend. I saw these this past weekend at Boone Belles in Boone and almost bought them:



...but I was good and didn't get them...
yet!

You can REALLY "MARCH" in style in these in MARCH!
(I'm sorry - that was the last one.)


I found two more styles online that I really like:

So excited for March and official sandal weather!

SSP for Warby Parker!

A couple years ago a friend told me about this really trendy site where she ordered her eyeglasses. I had asked her where she got such cute eyewear and her answer was  "Warby Parker!"
I went to the website and was overwhelmed by all the choices! Not only were the glasses trendy, but there were many traditional looks, and awesome colorful frames as well. There were countless options for both men and women, in prescription glasses, non-prescription, AND sunglasses!
I feel like sporting glasses rather than contacts has made a comeback in a big way, and now glasses are an accessory and make a bold statement to complete your look in addition to helping you see.
If you order from WP, you can have FIVE pairs sent to you if the glasses are "available for try-on" before you actually buy them! I have a friend who did this, and it was so easy and fun. I feel like many times, people are wary of ordering frames online since they can't try them on and see how they look, but Warb…

The Reality of Sin

Yesterday I was blessed to sit through THREE amazing church services. Lately, I feel like I really need to absorb as much of the Word as I can on Sundays in order to thrive through the week. It is so easy to get caught up in the stress of daily life, and I've found that the best way to combat that is to be poured into through spiritual teaching. I can't pour into my students or my family or my friends or my middle school girls on Wednesday nights if I'm not constantly growing and learning. 

It's also really cool / interesting to sit at different churches with entirely different groups of people and hear the Word presented in different ways.

Different churches appeal more to families or young people or older people for different reasons.

One thing I realized as I sat in my home church yesterday morning (OakView Baptist) is that although we don't have the lights and the music and coffee, we do hear the Word in a way that really gets deep into your soul.

It's a trend …

Riches I Need Not, Nor Man's Empty Praise

I haven't written anything on here since MARCH. ...not anything from my own spiritual journey. I've done promotions for two companies and that's all I've posted. I am realizing that when I write, I am a better person. I can't believe I haven't written on here in seven months. It makes me sad. I've felt a void!

Ironically, though, what I came here to write is the same topic as what I last posted about - what others think. I found a version of "Be Thou My Vision" that I really love about a month ago, so it's been on repeat. As I'm busy with everything going on in life, I have to constantly remind myself to keep my eyes set on Christ. The line that has stuck out to me the most over the past month is
"Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise."

I'm teaching 9th and 11th grade this semester. In both classes we are reading books set in the Great Depression. We've had discussions (sometimes debates) about how money can't …
