On my heart

Thursday, July 17, 2014

I know I jump around a lot with posting - one day it's fashion, one day it's travel, but that's what I want this little space to be; all the little parts of my life that make up who I am.

Today I wanted to share something that has been on my heart a lot lately - pregnancy.


I'm at that stage in life where everyone I know (and people I follow on the internet) are having a baby. It's an exciting time, but it also stings a little at the same time. I look around and see all of these beautiful mama's and their growing bellies, and I just wish it was me. It's not jealousy, it's just a deep desire to be able to have that experience.

Do you ever feel like an outsider? The only single gal, the unmarried couple, the career focused one?
It's hard to feel like no one relates to you, or you can't relate to anyone else.

My husband and I talk a lot about having kids but we both know that the timing just isn't right. I know that God has a plan for our lives, and those of our future children, but sometimes it's just so darn hard to wait! I pray that God will bless us with healthy little rascals someday, and I'm sure they'll be worth the wait.

[What to wear] India

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

I have been dreaming about visiting India again. It's such an amazing place with so much to discover! When we traveled there in October, I put a lot of thought into my wardrobe because there are so many factors to consider. Even though it was only 3 days, I wanted to be prepared for any kind of weather or occasion.


Tips for packing for a 3 day trip to India

1. Check the seasonal temperatures of the region you will be visiting. The Northern Mountains vs. Mumbai will make a huge difference in what you will need to pack.

2. Wear things that are light and comfortable. 
Pack items that are easy to throw in a suitcase and you don't have to worry about it getting wrinkled.

3. I've heard different people's opinion on wearing sandals vs. closed toe shoes, but unless you are going through the slums where there could be hazardous waste on the streets, sandals are fine. Pick a versatile (and comfortable) sandal that you can wear day to night.

4. Be considerate of the culture and keep your shoulders and knees covered. Shorts are fine but wear them at a decent length.

5. Bring a small cross body bag for day trips to prevent theft, so you aren't carrying around all of your valuables with you. Backpacks are not recommended unless worn at the front.

6. It's hot, and dusty, and smoggy, and you will want to shower multiple times a day if possible, so bring lots of toiletries. (sidenote: Bring toilet paper that you can carry with you at all times. Public restrooms do not supply toilet paper, or you will have to pay one of the bathroom attendants for it.)

New Home

Friday, July 4, 2014

I'm feeling very blessed as we settle into our new home. There are things I had on my wish list as we were looking for a new place to live, and I am thankful that we were able to check a lot of those items off our list!


We are slowly making it feel like home, and I can't wait to give you the tour! For now, here's a look at half of our living room that isn't covered in boxes. Have a great weekend!
