oh the holiday season, it’s been fast this year! I don’t know if it was becasue Thanksgiving was a week later, but it has seemed to fly by. I had great expectations for this season, and most of them have failed. I’ve been so “busy” that most of the time I haven’t let my heart get ready for the true meaning of the season. Today, I’m resting in the fact that God goes before me, and all I have to do is seek Him first, and He will hold my hand the entire way. I ache and yearn for rest. true rest. I’m ready to not have a million little things to do, places to be, errands to run, toys to pick up. As we settle in at home for the holiday, I’m ready to just be. To sit by the fire at night with a glass of wine and catch up with my sisters and parents, to cuddle up in bed during nap time and watch movies with my sisters, to listen to Christmas music, and finish wrapping presents and eat a lot of food, and just BE together.
So it’s about to start. this season of rest. after Christmas we are headed to the beach to celebrate my mother-in-laws 60th birthday! She is blessing and treating us to this fabulous trip and we coudn’t be more excited to get away. I think yall know by now that I am a summer girl. So I can’t wait to get my barefeet in the sand, sun in my hair and a book in my hand. I can’t wait to watch my kids really expierence the beach and the ocean for the first time. I can’t wait for them to have time with their cousins, and for the adults to get some good time together too.
My big beautiful anthropologie journal will be coming with me, and my laptop will not. The words will be more on actual paper rather than on this blog for the next few weeks. I hope the rest and the disconnect will only make me better. I am excited about 2014, about the words that will find their way on this blog. the dreams to be dreamed and lived out, the stories that will be told, the life to be lived out loud. but in order for me to be fully alive, and fully here in 2014, I need time away.
So my sweet dear friends, you won’t be hearing from me much over the next few weeks. But I promise 2014 will be an amazing year. I’m already dreaming about how this space will continue to transform and I can’t wait for you to come along for the ride. until then, Merry Merry Christmas! and Happy New Year!
Hey, I'm Wynne!
Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life. I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.
A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!
This speaks to me so much, sister. Rest. I pray you are blanketed, yes, blanketed and wrapped up in rest and that you come back deeply refreshed and sparkly…and ready.
