Earlier this spring I purchased these vintage Alice in Wonderland prints for my niece Phoebe’s birthday and colored them to hang in her room. I’ve been collecting some classic children’s books and a few modern ones to read to Colette. Building her little library has been one of my favorite things to do and I can’t wait to bring her home to read to her all of the books I’ve gathered so far. ❤️📚
A November & December I’ll never forget for all my earthly days... Days we will reflect upon and that we already refer to as the most precious days and look back on with awestruck memories. ✨ God is so good to answer the prayers of so many. Thank you all who have prayed for us, with us, and have encouraged us on this adoption journey. It’s true, adoption is the hardest thing I have ever done but seeing that little girl bundled up in her NICU crib is the most amazing sight and makes all the failed fertility treatments, scammed adoption match, and countless tears more than worth it. ✨
It is with great joy that we introduce our daughter, Colette (Coco) Arya Briggs 🧸🎀 She was born on November 21st at 12:18am, weighed 3 pounds, 9 ounces, and was 17.5” long. She will be in the NICU for a few weeks until she is strong enough to come home. Please keep our little family in your prayers. Our hearts are full. 🌙✨ “The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.” ~ Psalm 126:3
I just received my @google photo book in the mail and I’m loving that some of my favorite photos from this past year are all in one place. It was incredibly easy to download pictures from my phone and create this book that I can cherish of my favorite people and places! Link in my stories to order yours and get free shipping until December 12th! ✨ (psst... they also make great Christmas presents!) #googlephotos #googlepartner #photobooks #ad
What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions? Mine would be Josh and I exchanging ornaments every year with an ornament commemorating that past year for us. Another favorite of mine is a tradition we started last year of exchanging books on Christmas Eve (thank you, Iceland). I would love to hear your favorite! 🌲✨
What’s better than a cup of tea (or coffee), a few favorite vintage books, and some cozy socks? 🧦☕️ Thanks to @kbell_socks I’m staying warm & stylin’ at the same time. Grab you a pair for 15% off with code “KBFRIENDS15”. #kbellgetscozy #ad
Thank you all for your prayers and sweet encouragement during this difficult time. We are looking on in faith and hope that God will bring our baby to us in His time. ✨ I wrote a little adoption update on the blog. Thank you all again. So grateful for this special community.
It’s #shopsmallsaturday and I am so excited to announce that one of my favorite shops (@sassysparrow) is having a 20% off sale! Their gorgeous bags (like the Lawrence pictured) are all on sale! Go check out their darling shop. ✨ 📦 I’m also loving my new linen throw from @epiclinen. It’s such an amazing piece to drape over my bed, cuddle up with while reading a book, and makes a great photo prop as well. 👌🏼All of their linens are also 20% off this weekend! 📦 Remember, that two of my favorite companies (@mejuri & @vitruvi) are having amazing sales this weekend too. Check my stories to shop! ✨
I know I have been rather quiet over here lately but I needed to take some time away to grieve and figure out where to go from here. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your love, support, and prayers. I read every single comment and it truly touched me deeply. I’m so thankful for this beautiful little community and the amazing people it has brought into my life. ✨ Our Christmas tree is up, and we are staying in our pajamas all day, drinking coffee, and spending time together at home. No breaking my neck for Black Friday deals over here. Who all is braving the madness today?
