Being: Home Town - Our Day Trip to Laurel

Hey Being: Me Readers!  I know it has been a minute, but I can't wait to share what I have been up to over the last few months! First of all, I never knew how much I would LOVE the South. I mean, I've had people tell me I would multiple times... but we just can't wait to go back! One of the first stops we made was a day trip to Laurel, Mississippi. This is one of those "if you know you know" moments. But for those of you who need a little catch up, Laurel is the filming location for the HGTV series Home Town.   During the first few months of quarantine, Victor and I watched Home Town every single day. We fell in love with Ben and Erin, as well as their style and ability to transform these historic homes into such beautiful places to live. Yes, it is on our bucket list to get one of our own someday! For now though, we give them full credit for our Quarantine Remodels - including our dark green accent wall in our living room. Downtown Laurel, MS Since we were just d

Being: Alive

Hey Being: Me Readers! I know... I started 2020 by saying I was going to do a post every Sunday for you all and I definitely have not done that! The first few weeks of 2020 were exciting and had full thoughts of a bright-eyed, dream-filled year. Obviously, so much has happened since then. I am not going to write this post about what is happening in the world right now, because truthfully, we are all living the same quarantined life. I am unemployed, like some of you, baking way too much banana bread, and just trying to find normalcy through all of this. But, something this quarantine lifestyle has brought me is a closer relationship with God. When all of this started, I kept hearing women say things about how grateful they were for their extended time each morning in the Word or how their prayer life has grown tremendously through all of this. To be honest, I couldn't relate. I had kept my same routine since before the quarantine with my daily bible study and prayer journalin

Being: Worried - Having Faith in What We Can't See

Happy Sunday Being: Me readers! I am so excited to be back and writing again to you all. This week has been exciting in some ways and also overwhelming in others. I had planned on writing a post all about how Victor and I met, how he proposed, and how God has shown His faithfulness in ways we never knew were possible this past year - but God placed something different on my heart this morning and I am going to run with it. (Yes, I'll still be posting all about Victor and our story - it's just going to be a little delayed.)  It is time for me to admit one of my biggest struggles in life that always has some type of hold on me, preventing me from living out my life to the fullest, the way God has intended us to live. That struggle?  Worrying. Can anyone else relate?  "Worry" is described as a state of anxiety and uncertainty over actual or potential problems. Yes, I know you know what the word worry means, but sometimes it's easier to underst

Being: 2020 - A Quick Recap

Happy New Year!  It's hard to believe it's already 2020. Time is flying by and life is moving so fast, it's hard to keep up! I know it has been almost a year since I've written a blog post (YIKES), but I am going to do my best to get this back up and running full force for this year, with a new post every Sunday! For now though, let's just do a quick update. 2019 was a crazy, life-changing year. I can not wait to share all of the exciting things that happened.  Spoiler Alert: I'm Married!!  Photo by Emily Faith Photography On November 9, 2019, I married the love of my life. It sounds cliché, I know, I know. But I truly didn't know it was possible to love someone as much as I love my husband, Victor Picazo. I can't wait to share all of our wedding details with you in a blog post soon to come!  He proposed on March 30, 2019, and it was the biggest surprise of my life. I had no idea that it was going to happen and I actually scr
