What's in My Heart?

My friend Becca over at The Texas Darlings tagged me with a really creative tag that made me really think. Here's the challenge:

"With as much Creativity as you can muster, show your heart in:
a picture, a poem, a song, a quote, an item of clothing, a place, and a Disney princess"

This picture definitely shows my heart...my kids. I love the way I'm looking at Caleb in this picture and I look at Jamison the same way on a daily basis. I'm amazed that God has blessed me with wonderful children, that they are growing right before my eyes and at how much I love them. This picture captures it to me.

Proverbs 31: This isn't exactly a poem but it captures things that God requires of me as a woman. It's inspiring and I try to live it out daily.

"All they can say is no.": This is a quote I learned from my mother and it gives me the courage to just go ahead and ask.

This isn't my shirt but I have some like it. I love T-shirts. I'm all about comfort so T-shirts are my thing. The yellow, of course, if for the happiest color on Earth!

Now, while I love being at home...this is my place. Destin, Florida. I've only been once and I'm already in love. The beaches are so clean, the condo was perfect, the vacation was relaxing. I can't wait to do it all over again, year after year.

I'm not big into the Disney Princesses, but if I had to pick I'd say Ariel. She appreciated the little things, even a fork. She made sacrifices (her voice) to go after the desires of her heart. I want to be like that. She also left her entire family to be with the one she loved and I can relate since I left Cleveland and didn't return mainly because of Rondell.

I tag:

This is such a beautiful and unique tag and I love how you filled it out. It really shows us a bit about you, meaningful stuff not just surface chit chat kind of things.

This first photo is so precious. It makes me want to have another baby! I must be crazy since I can barely keep up with the two I've got! :)

Fun! That first picture is so sweet! And we LOVE Destin too! That is where we go to the beach when we take vacations too!

Kelli said...

Aw, thanks for sharing Kel. I especially love the first picture since I can relate and it wasn't too long ago I was there (3 weeks actually).

Now you just need to visit Florida so we can actually meet. =)

What a great list. I love the picture of you and the baby, how sweet. I also agree with you about the comfy t-shirts.
Today I took the plunge and I am having the southern blog design recreate my blog layout. So we will hope it goes well.
Have a wonderful day!

What a fun idea. Destin is great...next time you go head a little east and check out Seaside and Santa Rosa...that's where we vacation! Nothing like the beach.
Love the baby picture...one of my sweetest memories of all time is the first time I looked at my babies. I'm a huge Disney princess fan! I even wanted to name Melody after my favorite one; Aurora. But Alex wouldn't let me name our child after a cartoon! lol
