instagram dump

a big fat instagram dump for your mid week.
my in-law’s have been so many places. this is their map.  different colors mean different things.  I believe the red is where they have both been.  green is for my FIL and White is for MIL.
fun fact – they met in germany.
a girl from montana and a boy from alabama – fell in love in germany, and have traveled the world together.
true love.
 my mother is the hostess with the mostess.
seriously it is just a random tuesday night, but she knows how to make it special.
my he-ro.
the ringling in sarasota.
the fact that i get to go here for work, well, it doesn’t feel like work.  
I finally bought this mug.
i love having my morning coffee in it.  
another fun fact… I am SO particular about which mug I have my coffee in.  it has to be cute.  
Lola and the dogs next door.
that sounds like a sitcom.  and it is for me every morning.
all of them cannot wait to play together.  
she plays them like a fiddle too.  that flirt.  
when can i move in.
i have a thing for wrapping presents. 
 so many inspiring treats on my bulletin board.
hattie sparks. rachel carl & co. heather’s invitations. a rifle card from jessyou’re the bee’s knees.
bettina zygmont stationary.  an inslee print from bettina. happy girls are pretty girls. my fave picture of JB.
as soon as i wake her up, she jumps on the bed to wake JB.  and kisses him 1000 times.
i wear pastels in the winter.  it is my floridian inalienable right
as brave as some of you may think i am …
i am a scaredy cat by nature with moments of boldness. 
i wish i was bold all of the time.
this devotional from the confident woman hit home for me yesterday.
 particularly the part about fear.
oh the things we could accomplish if we weren’t afraid.
my new resolution for the rest of march is to “do it afraid” –
 feel the fear and do what you believe you should do anyway.

Happiest Day to you!

ps: my instagram name is sgmtucker

    So many things I love about this post! That strawberry concoction from you MIL? That sweet puppy face? And what a cute idea with the map. When I worked on Cruise ships my father had a map hanging in their house with little pins like that to keep track of where I was. So cute!

    Awesome pictures, I don't even know where to start!

    That is SO neat about your FIL and MIL. Traveling around the world together would be so fun.

    You work in that building?! It's gorgeous!

    Your mom can come cook for me any day! That strawberry concoction looks absolutely delicious.

    Lola is so cute!

    Amen sister. Fear is something I run to God with almost everyday. God is so great though–and almighty and yes yes we can trust Him fully. He makes our paths straight. I have been in Romans lately too and loving every moment of it. I love what this devotional said—such a good reminder.

    On a lighter note—Your pup is so ridiculously cute. 🙂
