Hi everyone!! It’s been awhile since I last posted on my blog. It has been a busy past couple weeks. Magnum and I got new furniture, and it was delivered to our house today- I’m SO EXCITED. Getting rid of his “bachelor pad” furniture was lonnnggg overdue.

So, last week on my Instagram story I rambled a little bit about how sometimes things happen, and even if it is not what I want, I still need to be open to it because it could be all part of God’s plan. This has always been hard for me, because I want to always have a plan for every aspect of my life. Like I mentioned in my Instagram story, I need everything for the next 10 years of my life written down in my four planners (lol). 

Last week was a bit of a rough week for me, and the fact that it rained EVERY.DAY., and I did not see the sun at all, did not help. Lol. It was always obvious to me that my life would drastically change in this past year because I got married, I am graduating from college in April, and Magnum and I are just figuring out our lives together, and where God will take us.

With all of these changes, happy changes of course, there comes a lot of unknown. By unknown, I basically mean, Magnum and I’s lives could take us anywhere right now, when for the past 15 years of our lives all we knew was school, and living with our parents. While all of this change is really exciting to me, it can also be a little scary. The thing I realized is, that it does not have to be scary.

After I broke down crying to my mom, she made me realize that God is in control of my life, and what could be more peaceful than that? Wherever life may take Magnum and I, it will always be where God wants us at that time, and when we follow where He leads us, He will always be with us. How cool is that? (Shoutout to my Momma!♥)

2 Timothy 1:7 states, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” It is not our place to worry about what our future holds, because God already knows where we will be tomorrow, five years from now, 30 years from now, and so on. 

I get really excited now, thinking about how we are so young, and have SO much time to just sit back and let God take His toll on our lives, and I have nothing to worry about in our future because I know that whatever happens, God will take care of us. Knowing this brings me so much peace when I’m feeling anxious, and I want to encourage all of you to always remember this truth also, and challenge yourselves to embrace change, and not knowing what the future holds- and I will do the same!


Finally we have had a couple of sunny days in Dallas, which give me an excuse to wear my favorite wedges from Red Dress Boutique. These shoes are perfect for spring, and summer! Also, I added a little pop of color to my nude pink blouse with these turquoise drop earrings (These were originally from Charming Charlie but they’re sold out now, so I linked similar ones ON SALE from Baublebar!). I’ll link all outfit details under the pictures! Also, my OCD-self feels on top of the world when my top matches my phone case. I am OBSESSED with this phone case from Case App. They have so many options for cute and affordable phone cases, and laptop cases. You also have the option to customize the cases, which is stinking cool! Case app was nice enough to give me a discount code to share with y’all. ♥♥♥ The discount code is LAUREL20 and that will get you 20% off your purchase with the Case App. A link to their website is under the picture below ↓↓↓
