What I Wore-Hearts

At first I thought I was too old to be wearing sweaters with hearts on them but I love hearts. Have always doodled them ever since I was a little girl, as many of you probably have as well. Now, I have an even greater love of the heart.  Ever since my baby girl was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect I am just drawn to them. They are special and have unexplainable meaning to me.  So here is my giant heart sweater that is more than just a sweater to me. 

Sweater and checkered collar shirt: J-Crew factory clearance
Jeans: Gap sale
Suede boots: gift from my sissy
Navy purse: vintage from my shop
Speck on the lower bottom front of sweater: hot glue "hairs" from crafting headbands. :) Don't worry it wasn't stuck on there!

On another note:  My thoughts and prayers going out to the families in Connecticut. My heart is just shattered at this unspeakable loss and I can't even begin to imagine the heart ache.  Every time I see a news clip I just well up with tears and have literally sobbed when I see those precious faces.  Only God knows the answers and can offer the peace and comfort we need. I pray the families cling to Him and are drawn to Him through this tragedy.   If there has never been an event more evident of the real battle of good ( Our Savior Jesus Christ) and bad (satan & his demons) that we are living in, then I don't know what is.  But, the wonderful amazing awesome news is that good wins!  Our God has already won the battle. He paid the price & sent His Son and He already has a special place prepared for us in His Kingdom.  We just have to accept Him and walk with Him each day. When God is on our side, we will be victorious!

I jumped on the pinterest bandwagon fairly recently.  I still have alot to learn but I am having a blast finding inspiration and creating interesting boards.  The only downside is that I have found my "To Do" list getting longer. I must remember that this is all in fun and that I don't have to complete 100 projects or redecorate my house overnight!!  Enjoy a sampling of some of my favorite pins so far! Sorry the quality of some of the pictures are kinda blurry..

You can find all these pins and more on my pinterest page. So hop on over and find some pinsperation! :)
