What helped me heal


So, I'm sitting in my bed wondering how in the world I got so blessed? This post isn't to rant but only to tell you of how happy life is and why we should be grateful God is our provider.

Y'all I went to through a rough patch over a year ago and thought it was the worst time of my life. Of course being a girl I was over dramatic and thought my life was ending... welllllll, I'm still here, thankfully, and could give no praise to non other than Jesus Himself. 
     Did you know that He loves us a lot unconditionally? Cause it's true. Let that sink in a second. We have a Man who fights for us, protects us, loves us, and wants what's best for us? And we don't even have to pay him to do any of those things! He does it all because He wants to. 

Jesus has changed my life since the day I accepted Him into it & guess what? It's been nothing but pure bliss. I pray that whatever or whenever you may be going through something that you don't think the worst of it or wonder why you... because there is a reason why. When I went through the rough time the only person I felt comfortable enough to vent, sob, cry, and hurt to was Him. He healed me! 

What brought me out of the sadness and pain was realizing how truly amazing my life is. Not at the time, but now I have a loving fiance who I am more than eager to marry; a family that has a heart of gold; and a healthy life. Sure the nice job, great education, and material stuff is nice but the value lies in Him.


I LOVE this quote from Brooke Shields:

“Don't waste a minute not being happy. If one window closes, run to the next window -- or break down a door.”

I hope you all are having a wonderful week and a joy-filled time preparing for this upcoming holiday! What are some thing's you're doing to get ready? Any traditions you celebrate with your loved ones? Please do share! :)

Talk to you soon <3

With love, Britt

A little holiday cheer

Hello, lovelies! :) I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far. I am super excited to do this post because it's my Christmas wish list! Which means... It's that time of the year!! Woooooo. Bitter sweet

So without further ado here it goes:






1. Garmin workout watch- Would come in great handy for my workouts

2. Nikon Camera- I would like one of these for special moments with family & friends. Perfect

3. Nike 4.0 Running shoes- Im in dire need of new shoes. These are so cute & my favorite style I've been using

4. Naked Palette 2- A girl can never have enough makeup ;)

5. Michael Kors Watch- A leeetle high priced but It's my most wanted item

6. Steel Chevron Tumbler- I'm a decaf coffee drinker & this caught my eye at how adorable it was!

7. Essie Winter Collection- LOVE these colors

8. Northface Jacket- I don't really have a good jacket that keeps me warm besides tight hoodies. Thus, I'd love a North face jacket. The fleece is so warming and comfy might I add!

9. Elbow patch sweater- WANT

Although is may seem materialistic and crazy, believe trust me I'm not a needy/wanty person. However, Christmas is all about Jesus for one, and wants. Not needs. It's about celebrating with those you love & passing around gifts for all to enjoy. I can't wait to Celebrate Caleb and Is one year together and enjoy the holidays.

                                                    What are some of your holiday wants?

With love, Britt
