My Life :)

Seven Years ago My life began. I fell in true love for the first time, and everything that I thought or knew about life came to a halt and my heart and eyes were open to all that is real in this world. Seven years ago I became a mother...I was blessed with the absolute most beautiful amazing little person. God truly had plans for my life far greater than what i had planned..To say that Gavin has enriched my life would be an understatment. He is my Life. ...I cherish every moment that I've had with him and look to the future with mixed emotions...I so dread him getting older and growing on into his life but I'm anxious to see the plans God has for him. Gavin I want you to know that you are so very loved. you are my heart. Watching you grow everyday and evolving into the little man that you are has brought more love and joy to my life than you could ever know. You are so very special and unique and I thank God for letting me be your mommy!"

Tomorrow Gavin starts first grade! Im so excited for him, yet nervous too. I hate being away from him during the day but I love knowing he is learning new things and making friends. Please pray that we have another successful year! First grade, here we come!!

Summer Greetings!

Well time simply has a way of getting away from me! I spend quite a bit of time on other blogs but cant seem to find the time to keep up with my own! Hopefully that will change !
Summer here in central ky has been long and hot! So ready for the change of seasons. Im seriously yearning for fall! My sweet lil boy is getting ready to start first grade August 5. It is a bittersweet time for me. I am excited to see what this school year brings for us but Im sad to let him go again.
I dont know how much longer i can hold out on dragging out my fall decorations. I cant wait to see all the beautiful colors and all the excitement fall brings! But I anxiously awaits falls arrival, I thank the Lord for another beautiful summer. Regardless of what the rest of summer brings to all of you, I hope you are Blessed!

A Few New Treasures!

Here are a few things I picked up at the great little prim shop my momma and I went into on Sunday..

For some reason I was drawn to this little dress. It reminds me of something a sweet lil prairie girl would wear on a hot summer day..It will eventually end up in my bedroom on a peg rack with other lil garments..
I also got this great sampler..The picture itself is darker than I like but I have wanted one for some time and I love it! These are a few things I picked out for my spring displays...I cannot wait to start decorating for the warmer months once we move..But for now they are packed up waiting for the move!

I hope you all have a Blessed Tuesday!

Im Back...

Well, I really did intend to keep up with this blog idea, but time has simply just gotten away from me...Ill try to do better next time!
Here in Ky, winter just seems to keep hanging around. we have had more snow than i want to remember. The days are long and cold and some days just down right depressing..But today was an exception..Im not sure what the temp got up to but it was so warm, Gavin and I went out for about two hours and I was so refreshed. Thank you Lord, for this wonderful calm day! I know spring will be here soon and I cannot wait to see the beauty that I know is only created by my wonderful God. I go to bed at night thinking of the flowers waking out of the ground and the birds singing their praises. I so cannot wait to feel the warmer sunshine and get back to gardening..Love, love my flowers! Hopefully, by the time I am able to buy a big pot of Impatients (my favorite) we will be in a new house and be settled...we are moving ...eventaully...and I cannot wait to decorate something new! I need a change!
I want to thank the Lord for being so loving and protective this week..I know he is all the time, but this week I really felt his grace! He was with Gavin, Chloe, and myself when a truck drove into the back of our car and other than being scared out of my mind, my children were spared from harm. Thank you Lord for watching over my babies! He has also nursed Gavin back health after a nasty stomach virus came into our house..Lord, I LOVE YOU and am so thankful for you blessings!

Until next time,

Well I'm excited to say this is my first post for my new blog and I'm happy to be shairng this with you all. To start out I will tell you a little about myself. My name is Shawna and I'm a domestic engineer (aka stay at home mom). I am first and foremost a child of God. Walking with the Lord truly is a wonderful life. I am very happily married for almost six years to my absolute best friend in the world, Kevin. in six years we have created so much love and honor for one another and I eagerly anticipate the rest of my life with him. We have two wonderful , beautiful children, Gavin, 6, and Chloe, 1. They are my heart. I cannot even try to expain how blessed I am with these two. I am so thanfkul God chose me to be their mother.

I am in this world by God's grace and I'm waiting to see the wonderful plans he has for me. I hope with this blog to share with you my newfound love and worship for our Heavenly Father. I hope to delight you with my witty character and sense of humor. I want to share with you my love of country life and antiques, decorating, cookin, homemaking, collecting recipes and my wonderful tales of motherhood.

Yes, I do have a camara and will be posting pictures and such as I go along. Please check back often as Im full of hot air and have a lot to say..Next post I will tell you of my love for the unpcoming season and all its beauty...fall decorating included..!

I want to share this with you today. It is from Proverbs and my favorite passage from the Bible. I hope you are inspired when you read it. When I read it , I an uplifted and renewed as a mother and wife. It was spoken at my Grandmothers funeral, and could not have been more true of her.

"A capable, itellegent, and virtuous woman-who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls. The heart of her husband trusts in her confidently and relies on and believes in her securely, so that he has no lack of honest gain...she comforts, encourages, and does him only good as long as there is life within her." Proverbs 31:10-12

Until next time, please remember to thank the Lord for all his wonderful blessings.
Much Love,
