california layering

November 17, 2015


It’s actually kind of cold these days. You need a sweater in the morning, and then again at night, but during the day you can get away with the bare arms because we still are sunny California. This little woven crop top has been my favorite thing to wear of late. It goes great with jeans and skirts (see here), but a great layering piece over dresses. I’ve been thrifting hoping to come across a similar piece but in a different color, no luck yet.

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is almost a week away; this year has flown by. There were a lot of changes for us this year, and it seems God likes to shake things up a bit, so there are some things we are praying about. Sometimes you want to fast forward and see what the outcome is, and I forget to enjoy and be thankful for the process. The process is refining and as much a blessing as finally having an answer (or decision). God’s been revealing so much of my heart lately (the ugliness of it) and how I relate and respond to Ben. I told a friend we were disagreeing on something and she asked, “Did you reconcile well?” I told her the agreement we came to at the end, and she said, “That wasn’t well.” HA! Okay, so I guess we have to work on that reconcile well part. We’ve been used to the lingo of loving each other well, but never thought about it as reconciling well too. That is just as important as the loving, actually, it ties into the loving each other well part. Love well. Reconcile well. My heart needs to remember that.

on me: dress, thrifted (vintage here, new there). woven top, vintage from calivintage (vintage here, new there). boots, lotta from Stockholm. necklace, thrifted. bag, humble hilo.

    I think I’m a bit the same as you here on the reconciling thing with my husband. Gid has been really pulling at my heart with parenting too and doing both with grace and love at the centre. It’s how He parents us and I am really convicted of it lately. It’s amazing really I can be about to answer and the Holy Spirit will halt me and show me how God would respond and then I’m able to respond as God would in that situation. I don’t always do it and I sure don’t always fare well in this whole wife and parent thing but I’m learning Gods way and I find it really amazing what I’m learning. Life sure is filled with lessons isn’t it. But we do have the Trinity uniting with us to change us to be more like Jesus in everything we do. I’ve got to say I really love your honesty with what you write because I isn’t know about you but it sure does feel a little lonely when you know you’re parenting or being the wife you want to be. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Soul sisters xx

      We reconciled well last night and it was sweet moment of grace and love. It’s tough though, our selfish desires love to take over. Life is about growing in grace and gospel and letting that permeate through all aspects of your life.
