let's talk // december favorites


These are a few of my favorite things:

This journal from Paperchase and these notebooks from Caroline Gardner make my heart supremely happy.

Vain & Fruitlessby Taylor Schumann // Here is someone who has lived through one of my worst fears. I felt like she straight up took my hands in hers and said hey, I know our hearts are weighed down, but Jesus is inviting us to live in the light. 

Audrey Assad's album Fortunate Fall has been on repeat 24/7. Specifically: Help my Unbelief, I Shall Not Want, and Good to Me (which you can see her perform live at Relevant here).

A Prayer for the People in Joy and in Griefby Emily P. Freeman // This prayer rang so true in my heart, especially when she writes about dissecting the mystery of a neighbor and the fear of losing a gift we were hesitant to accept in the first place. Also, I could listen to Emily talk all day long -- check out this interview with her.

This cozy living room, and this pretty bedroom.

I heart everything about Kate Bryan at The Small Things Blog.

A State of the Blog Address, by Rachel Dawson // Rachel talks analytics, scheduling, and embracing her unique voice. Mad, mad respect. Really, I love everything she does.

I discovered Katherine Jury's blog, and it is so, so homey.

I have been rocking the dark chambray all month long (similar, similar, similar).

When a blog turns 5by Hannah Brencher // Because sometimes I get tangled in the belief that as a writer, I must always be inspired and inspiring.

I'm never using another nude lipstick ever again. This one is the best (I promise, it is more nude than the picture makes it appear). Also, if you're in the market for a "my lips but better" pink, I highly suggest the Rimmel Kate Moss 08 (its in the black tube).

52 habits that can literally change your life, by Chrissy Halton // Hello, morning routine. One of my goals for 2016 is to have more rhythm in my life (high five if you can spell rhythm right on the first try, cause I can't).
