These Songs are Giving Me Life Right Now

Anyone else feel the heaviness of life right now? I'm picturing every human emphatically raising their hands. I'm sorry to say that I don't have the answers but what I do have for you is a worship playlist. These songs are bringing me back to my creator, reminding me that there is nothing too big for our God. 

He has not left us. 
He is not surprised. 
He is at work. 

He is made strong in our weakness. 

I can breathe when I focus on these truths. I can breathe while worshiping.

This playlist is life right now. I hope you find some peace in these songs & please, please, please pass along any worship songs that are giving you life right now.

Postpartum During a Pandemic: 8 Tools that are Helping Me NOT Completely Fall Apart

I don't know about you, but I'm reaching for anything that I can control. I'm currently 9 weeks postpartum. Four-ish days after Baby Jackson made his appearance into the world, Orange County enforced a stay-at-home order. At first, it really didn't impact me too much as long I didn't get caught up in the news & social media. I had already planned on being home with a newborn & our lives significantly slowing down for some time. I was good...until I wasn't. The smallest decisions seemed impossible. Should we go to the grocery store, order things on Amazon, walk outside? I quickly realized how much I took for granted. 

The world I prepared to live in while conquering postpartum no longer existed.

A City Guide: Pizza of Old Towne Orange

If you combine the fact that every member of my family (except me) loves pizza & that my favorite place to eat out is Old Towne Orange, you can confidently conclude that we frequent all of these pizza places. It's definitely a type of compromise, right?

Whether you're looking for a delicious, casual place to enjoy a *meal out or you're new to the area & just wanting to know what Old Towne has to offer, this is a great place to start!

Welcome to this Crazy World, Jackson David

Jackson David came into the world at 12:56 am on March 11 at a whopping 42 weeks exactly. We've been busy adjusting to our new family & allowing all the time we need to do so. I started jotting down ideas for this space in the last week or so, so keep your eyes peeled for new content & follow me on Instagram if you're interested in more.
