Today, my mom would have been 58. We are in for a year of firsts and this is the start of them. At least for this one, our family is all together...at one of her favorite places.
Very, very late Father's Day gathering at Beef and Bottle!
Doing his best Rear Window impression from the loft banister. #goodboy #dogsofinstagram #stalker
Well it's official! We're building a house and we are so excited! #newhome #eastwoodhomes #rockthrill
Often, bad storms create beautiful sunsets. If that's not life applicable, I don't know what is! I am fervently praying for those in the path of #hurricaneirma. #nofilter #sunset #stormclouds #thatwillpreach
I finally got a selfie with my favorite horse Evan. He's less than enthused but that's ok. #evanwiththegoodmane
If it doesn't move, I'll monogram it. 👏🏽
Birthday dinner for @dbaker0926! 🎂
This is Cappy the Caterpillar, one of Hewitt's babies. Like all of his babies, Cappy has no eyes. Those are always the first body parts to be chewed off when a new baby arrives. Hewitt has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to side-eyeing. So, here he sits...keeping vigilance over his blind babies. #goodboy #dogsofinstagram #seniordog 📷: @mjp1138
The #eclipse was pretty cool, I must admit. Even the street lights came on!
It's been a little bit since y'all have had a Hewittgram. So, here you go! #goodboy #dogsofinstagram
I've been thinking a lot about this over the last few days and I've been convicted over many things. Convicted at how I've allowed my own fear of confrontation or indifference to keep me from opposing those that would distort scripture. Convicted at how the church has failed to be a vocal dissident of the racism that has infiltrated our society. Convicted at just how unlike Jesus I am being when I choose comfort over truth and complacency over challenge. Those of us that call ourselves Christians have a lot of work to do. We will not let people do further damage to our reputation by perpetuating ideas that are so unlike those of Jesus. There is no one race, class, gender or socioeconomic status that should be held higher than the other. It's time for us to let that be heard loud and clear. 🎤
You're never gonna let, never gonna let me down. You're never gonna let, never gonna let me down. #sky #fortmill
And here we are. Life without mom. Taking it a day at a time...but awesome cards like this help. ❤️ (Card and pins are from Katie-Rose who is with the National Brain Tumor Society.)
My sweet mom passed away yesterday morning. She was a tenacious lover and tenaciously loved and was, indeed, a fighter until the very end. Local friends, her memorial service will be at 2pm on August 2nd at Good Shepherd United Methodist Church in Charlotte. #cancersucks #braintumorawareness #fighter
Kora the Therapy Dog is So. Stinking. Adorable. (Don't tell Hewitt)
My amazing husband spent this stifling Saturday making this beautiful rustic-ish headboard for the master bedroom. Hewitt decided to lend his modeling skills for the photo. #grayandwhite #homedecor
It's been a hot minute since I posted anything outfit-related, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity today since I am literally almost matching every color in my necklace. #ootd #statementnecklace #doitforthegram
I like to think that these cosmos are singlehandedly keeping the local bee population intact. They sure do make for a pretty picture either way though. #nature #cosmos #indianlandsc
Post-storm sunset! 🌅#skyparty #sunset
I fully realize that the majority of my Instagram account is sunsets. And? #skyparty #sunset #sky
I lift up my eyes to the mountains--where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2 🌅#skyparty #sunset #indianlandsc
Sunday afternoon goals. #sundayfunday #icecream
Well it took multiple tries...but we managed to get a decent pic of the three of us for an early Father's Day dinner.
Last night at the beach! 🌊 #peaceful #beach
This silent but weird video perfectly captures our beach behavior. Me, vacillating between reading and taking pictures and Mark, relaxing.
So, I did a thing. Way out of my comfort zone but fun!
I take a lot of sunset photos but sometimes the sky is just as gorgeous in the middle of the day!
