Makes My Day!

Don't you just love when you get unexpected praise out of nowhere?! I got the most wonderful email a minute ago from a DEAR and SWEET friend (who will remain unnamed, b/c I don't want to embarrass her!). She had ordered a frame from me a couple of weeks ago and just got it in the mail. For some reason, I was REALLY nervous about if she would end up liking her frame or not, only because it was a little bit different than what I had been doing normally with my initial frames! But...turns out that she ADORED it and sent me the most amazing and sweet email to let me know! On a day that I am so WORN out....it totally turned it all around! THANK YOU FRIEND!

Don't you just have to sit back from time to time and say..."Hmm...isn't life just the funniest and craziest thing?!" I know that there is that silly little phrase of "Make sure that you write your plans down in pencil and that God has the eraser." It is so true! God has the ultimate plan and He knows the way that things need to go!

Casey and I have been going through a lot of life changes lately (no...we
are not pregnant...promise!). The last two weeks have been a complete WHIRLWIND to say the least! To make a REALLY long story short : he and some friends had been planning on quitting their jobs this month in order to pursue a company that they had been planning on starting since October. All of a sudden, after their two weeks notices were in, some BIG red flags showed up with this new company and they backed out because it did not seem as amazing as it seemed it would be..... randomly, Casey's boss (Billy....his BFF also) never turned in his resignation letter to the higher boss. So, he still has a job! Also...another opportunity could be in the works for him with his same company that he works for now. I cannot really talk about this opportunity at the time....but we are REALLY praying for it and hoping that it will work out! It would mean a lot of cool and new things for us! I will share more when we know more! We should know more by the end of the month! WOO HOO! I am really excited about what could be ahead....btu at the same time, if it doesn't work out, I am content as well!

I promise, I am going to try to keep updating more and more! It's just been BANANAS lately in HilaryLand!

I will leave you with a couple of new and fun frames!

XOXO,

Hilary

I just laughed out loud when I read the sign about the bird with a french fry... that was too funny... made me picture an ugly black bird hopping through the McDonald's parking lot with a little mcfry.
