Forgiving Others When You’ve Been Wronged

forgive

I get angry when I feel that I’m being treated unjust and have been wronged. I don’t always handle it in the best way. Very quickly I react with frustration, outrage and sometimes hot tears.

While anger is a very natural reaction, it is how we deal with our anger than can lead to sin and misery. It can lead to bitterness, a grudge, constant brooding and poor judgement. Of course, this is not how we are called to live as Christians. So we must follow Christ’s example and word.

40 Travel Inspired Baby Names

pexels-photo-265987

22 weeks in, and we still don’t know what we will call our baby. Yet I’ve been thinking about baby names for YEARS! Long before I even met Wayne.

Since travel is a great passion for many people (myself included), I thought it would be neat to share some travel related names for all you travel-loving folks! Maybe this list will help you out if you’re still searching for that perfect name.

Meaning behind the name is very important to me, and if it is for you too, I explain the meaning and origin of the name! They are separated into two categories for a total of 40 names. Each list¬†comes with it’s own Pin image so you can pin for later reference!

My Pregnancy Journey – The First Trimester

cover photo

This is a milestone week. I’m now 20 weeks into my pregnancy – the halfway point – and time is starting to go by quite fast!

Finding out you’re pregnant for the first, whether it was planned or unexpected, will inevitably bring you to a place called: the unknown. As a first time mom, I felt like I knew so little about pregnancy after meeting with my doctor and doing research (which included binge-watching mom youtubers). Even though I had grown up exposed to babies and pregnant women, there is SO much that happens behind the scenes, on a day-to-day basis, that I was never aware of.

Today, I want to share with you what I experienced and learned in my first trimester. If you are newly pregnant, or planning to become pregnant, hopefully some of this insight will help you out. Every pregnancy is different, but if you are reading something I’m describing and you go “yes! That’s exactly how I feel! So glad I’m not alone!” then that’s exactly how I want you to feel. That being said, I’m not a doctor, so don’t ever hesitate to contact yours (or your doula) for advice or concerns!

Our New Adventure – Breaking the Silence

StockSnap_E54H1USMW5

Are you a planner type of person? The kind who tries to map out their life plans for the next year and next 3-5 years? I have a tendency to do that. So when something unexpected comes up and throws off some of my plans, it can take me a while to mentally and emotionally adjust. I don’t mean something small, like the weather taking a turn for the worse and cancelling your weekend plans. I mean BIG unexpected things that pretty much change your whole life and flip it upside down.

Do you suffer from dry skin? Do you live in a dry climate? Maybe both? Girl, I feel you.

When it comes to my scalp, lips and legs, I have to make sure I keep up with regular moisturizing all year round, but winter-time just makes everything drier! Add on top of that that I moved to Egypt, and my skin might as well be part of the desert…

I’m not as young as I used to be, and I’m starting to recognize how important it is to hydrate and take care of my skin. Over the last year I’ve been experimenting and trying out new products to see what worked and what didn’t. Overall, I’m super happy with a handful of beauties that have hydrated my world!

Yes, these are affiliate links and anything I make helps run this blog as best I can for you!
