Wise Men Still Seek Him Free Printable

UPDATE:  Hello Everyone! I have noticed that this post has been receiving a lot of traffic via pinterest and The Dating Divas Website. I wanted to welcome you all. I still do free printables for different seasons and holidays but no longer post them on my personal blog. We'd love it if you'd follow along on our design journey. You can find us on Facebook! I also post all of my free printables here. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your holiday season.
So the past couple of days I have really been thinking about how I can reflect the true meaning of Christmas in my home. We live in a small two bedroom apartment and there isn't much room to decorate. This morning I was watching the video Wise Men Still Seek Himand felt inspired to create a printable for my home. It's a good reminder to not only seek Him this time of year but throughou…

Hazel's Birth Story

Warning: This is long and is written in detail as it's meant to be my record of her birth. 
Well it's been a long time since I've blogged. Life gets busy and it's hard to keep up. However, I found myself wanting to record the details of Hazel's birth story. She's already 4.5 months old and I am finding that I am starting to forget small things. I want to write them all down before I forget. So here I am, sharing our story, so that I can remember and share it with her someday.

Hazel Anne Power joined our family on September 3, 2017 at 8:40 pm weighing 7 lbs 5 oz and 19.5 inches long. She is my smallest baby. She's 6 oz less than Brooklyn and 1 inch shorter. She is just darling and we are so glad she's a part of our family. 
So I guess I'll start at the beginning. I found out I was pregnant right after Christmas time and was able to share the news with my family that was in town for the holidays. We return home from our trip and I start back up playin…

The Smell of Chlorine: Tribute to BYU-I swimming

It's amazing how a smell can trigger a memory to run through your mind. 
The smell of Derek's hair yesterday reminded me of picking out Pumpkins at Lomabardi's Pumpkin Patch. It is one of our favorite memories. That day was filled with new adventures, beautiful fall weather, and fall baking. Yesterday I got to relive that moment because of a smell. What a powerful sense, one I am truly grateful for. Without it I fear I would loose too many memories.
There is one smell that brings back memories from childhood to college. Chlorine. I've been around it and in it my whole entire life. So many happy and competitive memories come back with the smell of chlorine in the air. At Gold's Gym the other day I got to smell chlorine and relive many great memories.
