I found this old window at an antique shop in Houston. It is a great way to hold and preserve some of your baby's precious items. I created my window with some of MY baby items. Inside you'll find a little dress that I used to wear...
And I can't forget my great-grandmother's quilt in the background.
I have this collection hanging in our "soon to be" nursery and I can't wait to create a new window with our son or daughter's sweet baby memories.

Check out this post on my other blog with a TON of pictures of our monogram collection throughout our home.
I also collect STARS!!!When I was in high school, the name of our dance team was the Sterling Stars, and I have had an infatuation with stars since then. Here is another look at some of my star collection in our backyard.
Here is my collection of wine glasses...
And I guess since I collect wine glasses, I must also collect these....
What do you collect???

Celine Dion shares are trials with IVF...four attempts to be exact!! She conceived her son, who is in 2nd grade, from her first attempt with IVF and now she is trying to give him a little brother or sister. I learned that she did become pregnant with her last IVF, but unfortunately had a miscarriage. So Celine and her husband are trying again.
It just seems so surreal to me to hear that a celebrity is having the same difficulties that a lot of us share...
If you have a minute while waiting to check out at the grocery store, take a peek at the article. It's short, but so very powerful.

"For God so loVed the world,
That He GAve
Believeth In Him
Should Not perish,
But have Everlasting life."

I talked to some of my close friends in Houston about meeting me there, but unfortunately, it would cost too much for them to fly to Atlanta to meet up with me. AND I emailed one of my friends here in Jax to see if she wanted to drive with me. But I was starting to panic because the event only had limited amount of seating and I didn't want to miss this opportunity to see Beth Moore AND meet up with some of my dearest bloggy friends.

"It's good to be passionate about your dreams, but did you know a dream can become an idol? If that's all you think about and you're not going to be happy unless it happens your way, that's out of balance. The fact is, sometimes you have to put that dream on the altar.
Are you frustrated because you're trying to force things to happen on your timetable? Sometimes we hold on to things so tightly, but actually, when we let them go, that's when God can bring them to pass. If you'll release that frustration and not let it become the center of your attention, but instead use that same time and energy to thank God that He's directing your steps, you open the door for God to give you the desires of your heart.
We have to remember, God already knows what we want and what we are in need of. He's the One who put those desires in us. We shouldn't be consumed by trying to make things happen. Instead, a greater act of faith is to be happy right where you are; to stay open and trust God because He has good plans in store for your future!"
