We finally made it home. // also learning that when I comes to animal printed fabrics I have absolutely NO chill. #DanielBear
Big yawns. // goodness. Four days into motherhood and already I feel like God has been teaching me so much. Nothing blinds us more to what God is ACTUALLY doing than our own expectations of what we think he SHOULD be doing. So even though we're looking at few more days in the hospital before we get to go home, I'm so grateful to God for a healthy, happy baby who looks this cute when he yawns. 😍🙈 #DanielBear
Hey tiny lion cub, I love you. Meet the world Daniel George Wallace Llewellyn.

Hey tiny one, wish you knew how many people are praying for you today. Praying for your little limbs, your lungs, your eyes, your feet. You've got an army of people just loving you into existence and I'll never get over that. We can't wait to meet you-- less than a week to go!
Another day another @vigilanteats cereal as I navigate a busy day prepping for maternity leave. Can't stop eating these things. Real food, real ingredients, real quick. YUM. 😍
When your friend has you stay over at her house because your husband is on the road again and your house is too quiet and depressing, but all you want to do is live in her guest room forever and drink coffee. 😍
I'm sure this makes me shallow, ungrateful, superficial and about a billion other things like that, but all I've been able to do for the last 20 minutes is go through Instagram and favorite all the outfits ill get to wear again when I'm not pregnant. Like this one. Homestretch people, homestretch. #highwaistedjeans #oranyjeansatall 📷: @jordanrisa

This is when it gets vulnerable-- PRINT WEEK. I'm a ball of nerves the week we send our issue to print. Did we catch all the typos? (No.) did we spell everyone's name right? (Hopefully!) did we steward the work of all our contributors well? (I promise we tried our best!) I don't think I'll ever stop being a mess on print week, but I know without a doubt, it's all worth it. I don't think I can over-communicate just how much work and manpower go into these issues. The people who give their time, talent, sacrifice their gifts so that you can be encouraged and inspired. I've tagged as many as I could in one photo. Just know there are dozens more. Can't wait for everyone who subscribe to hold these pages in their hands. #behindthetapestry
I'm only one chapter in and already I feel confident about recommending this book to you. Grace isn't cheap, actually it's one of the most costly gifts we can give or receive. And yet, if you're like me you often treat it with entitlement. How do we live lives worthy of the deep, unwavering grace we've received? My girl @jessaconnolly BRINGS it in this book. It comes out in October and I encourage you to pre-order it. You won't be disappointed. ✨
"Our biography is our identity unfolding." - John O'Donnohue. // September is the month I become a mom. Whoa. Chris has been gone for almost two weeks now and people keep asking if I've been okay alone. But I've actually been soaking in these last few days alone. Meditating, going on walks, taking naps when I want to and praying for the wisdom and grace to raise a human who is kind, compassionate, serving and humble in a time when it seems like the world is in chaos. I hope he learns, like I am learning, that biography-- what happens to you in life-- isn't his identity. That's a sacred separate thing that he'll be born with. His own unique identity that will shape not only his world, but everyone he touches. It feels weighty and like the best adventure-- helping someone learn who they were born to be. Okay I've officially had too much alone time to think and process this stuff. @chrisrend you can come home now and get me out of my own head! 😜🙈
Still need a crib, but we're slowly but surely getting there! #babycub

Monday morning hustle. If you need me I'll be sitting at @dosenashville trying desperately to resist the blueberry pie and not over caffeinate my baby. 😳🙈
Sunday mornings journaling with the bump. // Going through this study that has got me thinking about self-absorption and obsession. Psychological studies and research have time and time again proven that the more we focus inward, the more we chase material possession, the more we narrow our view and ambitions to our own happiness, the less content and happy we will be. But the more we give ourselves up for others' happiness and joy, the more we widen our perspective and LOSE ourselves in the process, the happier and more joy-filled we become. So why do we keep insist on getting what's ours? I know I do. I think it's because we getting a brief, and momentary rush from getting those likes on Instagram, or that new shirt, or that car or that pat on the back we've been aching for. But the secret to contentment has always been that it comes within, from spiritual peace. Im so bad at this! But I want to be better. Maybe you want that too. So join me as I tend to my soul this morning. Whatever that looks like to you. Let's be people concerned about the joy of others. Let's be people who aren't striving, living from high-to-high, but find joy in the valleys of life too. ✨
