I recently got the opportunity to write out and design a logo for the lovely Jackie Roque. She is a dear friend and an incredibly fashionable gal on her way to big things. Her blog is beautiful and her content is inspiring.
Exploring different solutions for her logo was fun and good exercise for me. I had sketched out options and left it for a few days, when I went back I immediately decided I didn’t like it. haha It didn’t have Panache! So, I was back to the drawing board, happily. The second set of sketches produced a much more comforting and confident result in what I wanted to present. Sometimes you have to go back and start over. Its good for you ;) So, check it out:
I love these two. Best pups ever. That’s it.
The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent. Exodus 14:14
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God is Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and i will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear , and the burden I give you is light” Matthew 11:28-30
People are people. Meaning we are all broken, and we all hurt. Everyone reacts to hurt differently. Either we keep it to ourselves and let it grow into something else, or we lash out at others, or we hurt others with our comments and attitudes- however it is that we deal with it, I think it’s important to give it to God from the moment it happens so that we don’t end up reacting in a manner we’d regret. I’ve been guilty of not doing this, and I end up taking it out on the people I love most, or whoever happens to be around me. I’m not a perfect Christian, which no one is. Whenever I feel hurt by someone I know, I just give myself a minute for a good cry (even before I was pregnant so its not my preggo hormones or anything) and just ask God to take the hurt away. I can’t change people and how they treat me or talk about me but I can give it to God. Sure, I can confront them about it all, but first and foremost I give it to Him. If you know me, you will know that I repress my feelings as much as I can, so if I’m crying its because I’ve reached my limit. lol I’m working on having some confrontational moments with those who take me there (after I evaluate the situation of course) because #thebibletellsmeso Matthew 18:15-17. I receive so much comfort knowing I’m not alone and that He hears my cries and carries my burdens.
Just wanted to share some real talk today.
This is random, but I wanted to share some items that I’ve recently purchased and love them. haha! I think its important to share when find a good thing. Enjoy, some of these are on sale too, and if you know me, you know I love a good sale! haha

I’m currently at 32 weeks. I feel more pressure on my belly, and seem to waddle at times. I’m on my 8th month and its hitting me all over again-we’re gonna be parents. I’m not gonna lie, I cried a little bit. It suddenly felt very overwhelming, and I felt so unprepared. I know it will all work out, and my natural mommy instincts will kick in, but I had a moment. Just wanted to be real about it. I’m lucky to have Danny be so confident, supportive and encouraging. He’s the best.
Little Mila weighs about 3 3/4 lbs. according to my Baby Center app. It also says she has fingernails, toenails and hair. It also says I should be gaining about a pound a week until she’s ready to come out. Eek! Yolo. Its gonna be great!
Just wanted to update, hope your week is going well so far! I’ll be updating on the Baby Shower soon!
