Lucy's Big Girl Room + Gallery Wall!

Hey y'all! I've been working hard on getting Lucy's room exactly as I want it and I'm finally ready to share it with you all! (Did you notice how I still didn't say I was finished? Forever changing my decor!)

I knew from the start that I wanted to have a tropical, Lilly Pulitzer-esque theme and when Target came out with these flamingo sheets in their Pillowfort line I was sold. I also have a special love for this rocking chair because it was the one that I used as a child and my mom used when she was a little girl, too! The monogrammed pillow was a gift from my grandma when Lucy was born.

I ended up painting Lucy's dresser a pretty coral shade and left the handles gold. It's a cute little mid century modern piece that we've had forever and I'm so glad I was able to give it a new look.

The gallery wall is a combination of dollar store frames that have been spray painted and a few items from Hobby Lobby. I made all of the art prints and added a Lilly print and some family photos.

The curtains are also from Target and I love the sheer look and mint hue paired with the coral accents. Her room was still feeling a little empty so when Lorena Canals asked me to try out one of their machine-washable rugs I thought that would be the perfect addition!

I was so right! The ombre is so beachy to me, and the mint color is a perfect match to her curtains. I LOVE the way this rug just completely pulls the room together and completes the look. And those tassels, are you kidding me? I didn't think it could be more perfect, but it can! Lorena Canals rugs are completely machine washable, meaning I can roll it up and toss the whole thing in my washer. No spot cleaning and no worrying about kids messes ruining my rugs!

I also appreciate that Lorena Canals uses natural dyes and contain no VOCs like other carpets and rugs; super important when little ones are close to the ground and putting everything in their mouth! Even better, proceeds of these rugs support the Sakula project and provide schooling for children in India where they're made. I love supporting companies who give back!

Are any of you Disney lovers? If you're a true Disney fan you may have noticed a little something in that gallery wall ;) Let me know if you find it and know what it is!

A Prayer on Election Day

Today is a big day for America. It's a big day for me; my first election in which I am able to vote. It's almost a mockery, like when I turned 21 and the bartender didn't even card me. But I won't get into the political arguments that have taken over all of my social media feeds for the last several months. Today I just want to pray with you all. I want to pray for this country and its leaders elect. I want to pray for its people and the decision that each of us will bear on our conscious today.

So today I pray:

Lord, we are grateful for the freedoms we are given and our ability to vote today. Please be with us as we cast our ballots, and let Your Holy Spirit guide those in charge of the ultimate decision. I ask not for You to sway the vote in my favor, but that You would give us all the strength to persevere through the outcome. Lord I pray that You will be with our politicians and leaders as they prepare to take office and that You will make known to them the love of Your son, Jesus Christ. We are all made in Your image, even our most corrupt and we all need Your love and grace. Jesus, let us feel Your steady hand and constant love today, and everyday. Amen.

I fear for the the future that I will have to raise my children in. What will our country look like in the coming years? I won't be able to protect them forever, I know, but it terrifies me to think that what little protecting I've done for now may no longer be possible. That I may no longer be able to provide for them in the same way as before. I'm not good at change, and it's taken a lot of prayer and grace to get comfortable with that. As you head to the ballot box today, don't fear the coming changes. God has known the outcome of this election since He created the stars. Vote your conscience, vote life, and vote knowing that whatever the end results of today may be, God is our King above all leaders.

Alright y'all. Don't be afraid to perform your civic duty! Happy Tuesday!
