Did I Hear Someone Say "Giveaway" ???

Well, we had a wonderful time visiting Blue Ridge this past weekend. Alas, all good trips must come to an end. I'll be posting some photos of the beautiful autumn leaves and more later this week.

But I'd like to quickly share a little bit of exciting news... our sweet new friend at Fairy Tales are True is hosting a Sea Lillie give-away today! Check out her blog for more details...
Best of luck!


I Heart {the color} Mustard.

Anyone else agree with me?
Mustard is the hottest fall color in my humble opinion.

That's why I dedicated my treasury on Etsy today to it.

I'm at home being productive and Kaela and Gino are on their way to Blue Ridge, GA to celebrate their anniversary. Little lovebirds. 

Happy Saturday!


Good Morning, God

Psalm 130

 1 Out of the depths I cry to you, LORD;
 2 Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
   to my cry for mercy.

 3 If you, LORD, kept a record of sins,
   Lord, who could stand?
4 But with you there is forgiveness,
   so that we can, with reverence, serve you.

 5 I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits,
   and in his word I put my hope.
6 I wait for the Lord
   more than watchmen wait for the morning,
   more than watchmen wait for the morning.

 7 Israel, put your hope in the LORD,
   for with the LORD is unfailing love
   and with him is full redemption.
8 He himself will redeem Israel
   from all their sins.


Featured Friend: Habatat Coffee Company

Happy Monday!

Habatat Coffee Company is owned by Ryan & I's friends, Sean and Natalie Scott.
Scott was the drummer in Wilderness of Tekoa with Ryan that ended over 4 years ago.
We remained great friends with the Scott's.
They just moved back to south FL from D.C. after opening the first Habatat Coffee shop.

They are a young 30ish (ok, Nat is 29) married couple with a 7-month old precious baby girl, Selah, and have made the ground floor of Habatat Galleries (run by Sean's bro, Jay) their home.
This weekend we got to join them for a soft pre-opening with family and friends. 
It was inspiring to see them in their element, actively pursuing a dream that I remember them bouncing around their heads several years ago. 

Sean uses this quote to summarize their mission for the company:
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. -Leo Buscaglia

This shop is the first non chain coffee store (that I can think of) for the downtown West Palm Beach area.
It's about time, I say! I'm not a huge supporter of Starbucks (except for Pumpkin spice latte season), but I do like my Dunkin Donuts (Sean, forgive me). 
They only sell fair trade & organic coffee.
I bought my first bag made by Barrington Roasting Co. It's from Costa Rica and it's delicious!

Here are some pictures from Saturday:

Even if you aren't local, join their facebook page and you can contact them to order their assorted coffee beans! (Yes, they only come whole). You won't be disappointed!

And, just for fun - here are some band pictures when they were on tour. I was still in college and Ryan and I had just got engaged! You can still find their album on ITunes :)
