Warm tea, good news, inspiration, & lovelies!

It's a beautiful Thursday morning and with a cup of warm chamomile tea by my side and some glorious motivation, I am ready to take on the day and share some news, inspiration, and lovelies!
First, some good news which all happened yesterday! One, my sister in law got married!!! Yaaayyy! Congrats Kristin & Berto (who are currently on thier honeymoon).

& Two, I received my "official" acceptance letter to nursing school!
When I recieved the envelope, I was literally shaking while I was opening it! I have been praying really hard lately about what path the Lord has for me when it comes to schooling and since I applied last application process but didn't get in (due to some class units that I received at CBU and not VVC), I was very apprehensive to reading what the outcome was for this application letter. As soon as I saw CONGRATULATIONS I was relieved, excited and yet overwhelmed all at once with tears in my eyes! This must be confirmation from the Lord and I intend on making the most of it all! I start this spring with the 2 pre reqs I must complete (pharmacology :-/ & nursing assessment) before I can actually start "official" nursing school in the fall. I'm excited to be able to give our little family an even better future and although it's gonna be tough, God will find a way and this brings me much peace about it all! :)

{Now for some inspiration & lovelies I stumbled across this morning}

I absolutely love this quote :) I want to make something similar to this to add to my crafting room!

This would be my sanctuary!

  6. I am in love with anything warm and sweet during the winter months so tea sounds good to me. Also congratulations on getting accepted to nursing school. It must be a little daunting to imagine with your little one, but one of my best friends had her first during her fifth semester of college and her second during her last and her husband and her are so well off and happy. Now they are done with college, but have more than just degrees to show for their hard work.
