17th birthday (gift guide) // #OCTOBERWITHGRACE

A couple weeks ago (October 31st) was my 17th birthday!! This year I didn’t do much, which was actually pretty nice and it gave me a chance to relax. My family really spoiled me with lots of awesome goodies. And since I usually always take pictures of the gifts and cards I get (to look back later on)- I thought it would be great to share the pictures I took THIS year. It seemed like everything I got was pink and adorable so how could I not share?!? Hopefully this serves as a great gift guide for everyone who reads this. Read More »

Pumpkin patch // #OCTOBERWITHGRACE

YAYYY TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY- Oct 31st, forever and always a pumpkin baby!!! Everyone keeps telling me how they cant believe I am 17 and its like “join the club” cause I feel like a 8 year old. So last week my cousins and I went to “Sweet Berry Farms” in Marble Falls Texas , which is a local farm we go to almost every pumpkin season and we try to go every other year to pick their strawberries. Turned out the farm was closed the day we went, but we drove so far so the very kind owner let us come anyway! So we had (what is a usually very packed place) all to ourselves. It was such a fun day and really made me feel like it was October.

Disney World (2015)

In February of 2015, my family and I took a trip to Disney World, truly the most magical place on Earth. Everything about Disney makes my heart so happy. I have only been there a few times in my life, the first two times I was pretty young so I felt like this time around I was experiencing everything for the first time. It might have been a rainy and gloomy week, but we didn’t care- we threw on our ponchos and smiles and were just enjoying our time together. I took a bunch of fun photos and had such an amazing time, so check it out.

Summer craft haul 

First week of my junior year in high school is officially finished- and I feel like I blinked and summer was over! This summer was definitely my most creative. I started and finished a lot of fun projects, learned some new skills,  and dreamed up lots of ideas for future projects! These few months might not have gone as planned but I definitely feel a peace from God knowing His plans are perfect and in motion. I got a lot of crafting\scrapbooking supplies this summer and I gathered them all together to share with you all, hoping these inspire the creativity in you!

Magnolia Market

Happy Saturday friends! Earlier this week my mom and I made another day-trip down to Waco,TX to visit our favorite place- Magnolia Market! Chip and Joanna Gaines (the ultimate husband and wife team) own and operate the business and also star in the hit HGTV show “Fixer Upper”  where they flip houses in the central Texas area. Some of my favorite memories are of day/weekend girl trips with my mom. We have visited Magnolia Market several times but every time we go there is something new to enjoy! This time the Magnolia seed shop and bakery were open! We had a great time and took some fun photos for you all to enjoy. Hopefully this might inspire you to make the trip down to visit our favorite place!
