She was not a one in a million kind of girl.... she was a once in a lifetime kind of woman!

     I recently had the pleasure to go to our hometown to care for my husband's mawmaw who had just gone through surgery for cancer on her lungs. She was diagnosed last year with lung cancer and had already underwent one surgery and needed to undergo another to help remove more. She was a small 4'11" woman with the heart of gold and a sass that only a woman raised in the south could have! Small but Feisty was definitely an understatement for Mawmaw Peggy! The kind of woman no matter how badly she was hurting would look at you, smile, and ask how you were doing!? I don't believe I ever saw her frown or complain about anything she was going through. Her family is a mirror image of her kindness, generosity, love and most importantly a true example of her faith and the values she instilled into them. I am very blessed to have met her grandson and had the pleasure to marry in to such a remarkable family.
   Mawmaw didn't need a nurse but just someone to be there with her to help her with daily things. So my daughter and I went to stay with her for a few weeks while she recovered, I consider myself truly blessed to be able to do these things since I am a stay at home mom. However while we were there she was placed in the hospital for pneumonia and within a few days she drew her final breaths and went to be with our Heavenly Father. She went very peacefully with no pain, our family was gathered around her singing praises to God for the things He had done for her and for us. Although very trying, emotional and physically draining on those around her we found peace and comfort knowing where she was. In God's hands no longer filled with any cancer or pain and dancing and singing praises in Heaven. We rejoice in knowing we will see her again one day and that this goodbye was not forever.

  She was not a one in a million kind of girl.... she was a once in a lifetime kind of woman! 

We miss and love you Mawmaw Peggy...

Thanks Brownie-Goose

I have to rave about this new pattern that a dear friend brought to me! It is by Brownie-Goose and is the Bay Dress/Top, Check out all of her cute patterns here at Brownie-Goose.
     I made up a dress for her daughter this evening and I can hardly wait to do more. I have a stash of fabric that has been waiting for that perfect dress and top. Our daughters will have these for just about every day of the week! I am itching to get started, come on summer (or just warmer weather). I think pairing these with a great pair of leggings would be ideal for springtime!






















This back is just incredible, I'm still swooning!


These two girls are such sweet friends and want to have the exact same clothes! Of course they are the best models! LOL I've got my work cut out for me!!!

The Beautiful Wife

I have had the privilege to be in a small group called The Beautiful Wife. We are studying this book "The Beautiful Wife" By Sandy Ralya. When starting this group I found out that when these groups are going on Sandy herself is praying over us. Not only our church, but her...the very author of her book is praying for us.  You can email her to let her know you are hosting this group and she encourages you through special messages and prayer. I just think this is an amazing way to connect with an author who is passionate about women becoming a more beautiful wife!
     Throughout the last 6 weeks we have read, studied and journaled topics from Self-Care to Inviting Romance into your marriage. It has been a very deep, emotional and eye opening 6 weeks for me. There are areas in my marriage that were quietly hidden that have been opened raw and healed through prayer, journaling and sharing with this amazing group of women that I have come to love and support. It is easy to…

New Twist on a skirt.....

Haven't had a chance to post in a few days. I had a Vendor event this past weekend so all of last week I spent preparing items to take with me. I truly love these events they are specifically for women and their home business. We get to chat, share and enjoy one another for an entire day with no men and kids!!! I am fascinated by the creativity in each individual person and the talents that these women have! Afterward I spent the rest of the weekend at my sister's house which was a treat with the littles running around.<br /> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; I photoed a skirt that is one of my most favorite designs I actually happened upon by mistake. I messed up the first skirt I ever made by placing the elastic in the wrong spot and it turned into this skirt with a high ruffled waist. So after having Zoe I knew I wanted her in this skirt. I later found a design for the skirt and realized in my little world that I was not the genius I thought I was by having this adora…
