What are you doing October 11, 2014!?!?!

Want to join me at the Children’s Impact Network Prayer Run!?!  It’s going to be so fun and the money raised will benefit this awesome organization and the orphans they help.  I was able to see first hand this summer what an amazing organization Children’s Impact Network is and all the good they are doing.  Children’s Impact Network is a nonprofit organization, which demonstrates God’s love through mission projects around the world, to children and youth at-risk, and trains, equips and networks leaders to do the same.

If you live in the Charlotte/Huntersville area and would like to participate in the run, click here for all the details and to sign up!

goth with pops of pink

I love clothes and shoes and accessories.  ALOT.  ALOT.  I had to type that twice to emphasize my love of these things.  I’m not proud of this, but It’s a blessing from God that I love to shop thrift stores or our financial situation might be in a world of hurt.  I realized just how much I love these things yesterday driving to a work consultation with Christina and Kelly.  Kelly said, I feel like every time I see you, you have a different purse.  This made me stop and think.  I realized that Kelly has been carrying the same purse since I met her over a year ago.  Her purse is super cool, an amazing yellow leather, and small enough that she never “loses” her cell phone 15 times a day like someone else I know.  I thought about how easy and simple this would be to just have one purse.  Never changing the contents out, not having 6 bags fall on your head when you’re tying to get the one on the bottom, not having to store them or make room for them, never freaking out that your cell phone is forever lost.

For a brief minute I tried to convince myself that when I got home I was going to choose one bag/purse and donate the rest.  Then I started thinking about how much I love change.  I love change in my world, in my home, and on my person.  I think this comes from growing up in a military family where we had to move every 3 years.  I LOVE new things, whether it’s visiting a new city, sewing a new pillow for my living room, or carry a different purse then I did the day before.  My style changes all the time.  Sometimes I dress very hippy like with lots of flowy flowery prints, sometimes all I wear are t-shirts and jeans, then I go through my anthropologie on the cheap stage, followed by my goth stage with all black with black leather boots.

My office changes as much as my clothes do.  This doesn’t mean I run out and buy all new things.  NOPE.  This means I paint my desk, I trade lamps with my daughter, I display my yarn for unexpected pops of color.  I’m in a very girly stage, inspired once again by The Nester.  Here is how I jazzed up my office with pops of pink!!!
