fancy nancy + a video

this is a typical morning with my sweet girl. we eat breakfast and then do some coloring. she loves to make movies and then watch herself. she also loves to sing. and she also loves to chat.
and she also likes to use big words like "iridescent"... she's pretty cute, i think:

[PS i hate hearing myself talk... oh well!]

have you heard of Fancy Nancy?
well we love her.
we actually only have this one book but it's a favorite:

but it's the one book we read everyday, no matter what.
so you can imagine my delight when i walked into Ross
a few months ago and saw the exact "bonjour, butterfly" costume for $10

that's where she got the "what's that fancy word for shiny? oh yes, iridescent" line in the video :)
i'm telling you, the vocabulary in these books is amazing. 
i highly recommend them for little girls.
in fact, i really need to order a few more for christmas for her.

hope you all had a fun, safe, not-too-scary Halloween! 


  1. That was the cutest little video!

  2. I heart Fancy Nancy. My tomboy of a daughter, however, could kinda care less! lol... I think I love the books more than she does. If I want to read them I have to force them on her.

    What adorable pics of your little cutie pie!!

    Happy Halloween!

  3. my daughter looooovvvess Fancy Nancy! Your daughter is adorable!

on embracing disappointment

sometimes it's the hardest thing we'll ever do to pause our ever-moving-forward agendas long enough to see another person. to have compassion and grace and understanding for them, especially when it interferes with our desires, when it means laying down our own needs in order to meet theirs.

our own motives and our own agendas can feel so important and forefront, so that moment of yielding to someone else can feel almost impossible. like a death of sorts.

because you know what? it hurts to die to self. it just does, no matter how insignificant it may seem to an onlooker.

but i'm learning to embrace all of the emotions that come with disappointments like this, not to ignore them or feel shame for experiencing them (probably the hardest part for me). to feel them, acknowledge them, let them sit there while i figure out the next right thing.

it's hard work to live in the tension of wanting to be healthy and magical and able to live above the waves - while still being very…

hope spoken 2014 | a little recap

well. it feels weird to be back here in this space. i haven't regularly blogged for over a year. i'm feeling like it's time for a redesign but that's beside the point. i'm really here to tell you about Hope Spoken conference that i attended in dallas 2 weekends ago. everyone has been saying how they need time to process everything. i'm no exception. what i'm about to share is really an email i wrote to casey and danielle a few days after i got home, but i've edited and expanded a little. there is still so much more in my heart and mind that's not quite ready to come out:

i'm finally sitting down to pour out my heart after such an amazing weekend. the first thing that's hitting me is these three girls went with a dream and a mission and a calling from Jesus, and were brave to walk through the door and keep going, as danielle describes it. i'm sure they imagined how beautiful it would be but i don't think they could have imagined just …

on fear and anxiety and unbelief

i've been struggling lately. i know. what a great way to start out my first blog post of like this entire past year. but really, does anyone even read here anymore? it's been awhile...

if you follow me on instagram, i've alluded to my struggle with fear and anxiety in small bits. but last week opened the floodgates when i shared a photo of that day's "Jesus Calling" entry which read:

Anxiety is a result of envisioning the future without me. So the best defense against worry is staying in communication with Me. When you turn your thoughts toward Me, you can think much more positively. Remember to listen, as well as to speak, making your thoughts a dialogue with Me.

If you must consider upcoming events, follow these rules: 1) Do not linger in the future, because anxieties sprout up like mushrooms when you wander there. 2) Remember the promise of My continual Presence; include Me in any imagery that comes to mind. This mental discipline does not come easily, beca…
