Aiming for progress, not perfection.

will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

Diamonds are a girl's best friend.

Landon has seriously hit the nail on the head for the past few years with his Christmas gifts to me. It's because he started shopping Etsy.

Shopping Etsy requires planning ahead of time for shipping of items made by one person (in most cases) in small batches. My love language is quality time, and I consider this type of thinking ahead a huge show of love.

When I receive gifts like this, I know that my man spent time thinking about me, picking out a gift he knows I will love...before Christmas Eve at 8 p.m.

I would certainly not turn down "real" diamond studs, but these babies are really more my style.

Understated. Clever. Lovely.

In the words of Landon's cousin, "Those are even better than the real thing!"

Please excuse the black circles under my eyes. My nearly-7-month-old still doesn't sleep through the night. Not.even.close. Good thing I have cute earrings to distract from my sleepiness.
