"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving."- W.T. Purkiser 🦃 Thanks to @gatheranddwell for these "thankful for" paper placemats that are going to be a great reminder of this quote tonight. The table is set and I even got to use my @simplyjessicamarie hand lettering tips for a little extra love at each chair💛🍂 #footesgetaway
God has been sweetly reminding me of How much He has done and though things feel a bit heavy right now as my workload can be a lot and J is battling another round of unemployment, there is so much good to be grateful for!
A year ago? No house. A year ago? Scary words about my health but no answers. A year ago? A business that our lender told me "must be just a hobby" because of how little I'd made the year before. And these are just 'tangibles'-- the ruts He's been digging out of our hearts are also very real 🙌🏻
I so often want resolution and understanding in this life, but God has been teaching me a lot about not seeking these things because this world is not my home and it's not going to make sense. Ever. We will experience loss, we will go without, we will wonder and encounter unknown. These are givens. And yet we rejoice, reach for hope, and give thanks. What grace in itself! Grateful to be a square in your world - wishing you & yours a happy Thanksgiving! 🦃💛 #ourcornerlot #messyheartmusings #jennythehound
What a perfect surprise to find out that @mimshouse was having an open house tonight and my in-laws only live 10 minutes away! Perfect reason to escape football watching and gosh, I stepped out of the car & fell in love. I especially loved hearing about how this space was originally gifted to a bride when it was built in the 1800s and read just now that Union troops occupied the house for 2 weeks during the Civil War! Be still my storytelling heart 💛 Raleigh, let's work together shall we? 😍 #bucketlist #cihiphoto #footesgetaway #mimshouse #carync
Why is chocolate not a part of #Thanksgiving? I'm sorry but pumpkin, pecan and cranberry things don't count for dessert. Took matters into my own hands and tracked down gf brownie/torte yums from @sugar_buzz_bakery. Because I'm a good daughter-in-law like that 😜🍫 #footesgetaway #caryNC #foodie #sugarbuzzbakery
Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer & worn with thanks. - T. Goodwin ♡ #footesgetaway #goodmorningNC #thanksgiving
Not complaining about making a 30 minute leg stretch + homemade hot cocoa stop in #Savannah 😍! No offense, Kansas (home), but driving through the south is a zillion times better than Iowa or Missouri 🙈 Oh & if you're road tripping, get the #Serial podcast. So good 💛🚗 #footesgetaway
Packing for a road trip is one of my favorite parts of marriage. Having a drink at our little kitchen island while we run through our checklist, swinging by Publix for subs to fuel us, spoiling #jennythehound and going to sleep knowing we can leave anytime we feel rested BECAUSE WE'RE THE BOSS. Yep, 14 years into life with this guy and most nights still feel like an epic sleepover with my best friend 💛 #CIHIphoto #footesintheheights (💍s belong to the fab @lexisommer & @timesommer)
It's 45 degrees in Florida this morning and my first set of film scans (thanks to the amazing @justindemutiis) are officially in. What is going on?! I don't know but I'm just accepting it. Putting on a scarf and trying not to be scared (😂) of what these pretties mean for future portraiture (#hooked). Oh Monday, you're so strange 🌿😘 #CIHIphoto #richardsphotolab #contax645 #cultivateretreat
Popping back for a ▫️ swap from @livesimplymom's amazing branding session. Because *this* everyday, what are we doing, I love you lots, hands full moment is what today was really about and is the foundation of her business-- snuggles, family, quality time, deep breaths of life. Also a beautiful representation of the images I've been able to make this week. No to flurried perfection and checklists, yes to more of this, all of this 💛 #CIHIphoto #branding 💄by @emilyagore
Haven't sat down in what feels like weeks so I'm in my pjs at 7:30pm with a big bowl o' popcorn and an editing queue that reminds me to be thankful for a God who stewards my gifts, even when I'm tired and grumpy. Committed to not miss out on the last month of 2015, starting with a living room viewing of "Rent", 10 years after J and I saw it as hand-holding 17 yr olds. These are the nights 💛 #ourcornerlot #footesintheheights #messyheartmusings #thankful
