“If we had no winter, the Spring would not be so pleasant.” ✨ Things are turning green, tank tops and shorts are coming out of the closet, and we’re getting excited for warm weather activities. We’re also finding renewed hope from the grief we experienced last year, and this little guy is helping with that 🐾🐶 Funny how God works - my friend @thekalewhale and I are releasing a podcast and blog this week about GRIEF, and today’s sermon @seacoastchurch was about GRIEF. 🙌 I’ll be sharing the sermon in my blog as well, as a supplement to the podcast discussion on our personal experiences. You can watch the sermon online today, live at seacoast.org. .

Have you seen God working in your life recently? ❤️ #LiveHighVibe

The Mojo wings @libertytaproommtp are some of the BEST we’ve ever had. Seriously craveable. I get the ranch, @explore_thecoolblue gets the bleu cheese. I get the drumsticks, he gets the wings. This is why we’ve been married for 8.5 years. #soulmates 😋❤️

On Tuesdays we drink Hopslam 🍺 Weekday date nights are our jam. Do you guys do date nights? For us, it breaks up the monotony of the work week, and let’s face it - married life can get monotonous. Date nights allow us to talk about things other than house things, finance things, chores, etc. On date nights, we end up planning the most epic vacations 🤣 Different scenery is always a good idea 💡 Tonight is @libertytaproommtp’s Hopslam release party, and we’ve never tried this beer before, so here we are 😘❤️

“Wherever you are, be all there” ❤️ What does this quote mean to you? We catch ourselves looking for the NEXT thing, the NEXT place, the NEXT activity. God has us HERE, right now, at this moment, for reasons beyond our comprehension. How can we make the most of HERE? Patience, peace, generosity, unselfishness, being the best we can be in any situation. #LiveHighVibe

A day in our “Southern Charmed” life 😋 We documented a fun Saturday in February in Charleston - watch the full video on our YouTube channel (link in bio). ❤️ .
.
We celebrated a birthday with our good friends (@thebootsie) at @tavernandtable, went to the beach for sunset drone action, and hit up one of our favorite bars @hometeambbq. This is a typical winter weekend for us. The summer is a different story 😋😋 .

Happy (Fried Oreo) Sundae! 🎉😍 Satisfied a sweet tooth at @thealleychas last night 🙌 When was the last time you indulged in something DECADENT?

Peace is my priority ✨ What puts your mind at peace? 💆🏻‍♀️ 🧘‍♀️ A peaceful mind is something we all deserve, and it’s what I’m focusing on creating for myself every day. Things that help me feel at peace: prayer, perspective, and doing something for myself every day. Yesterday, that was reading half of @cesarsway’s book in one sitting so that I can properly raise this crazy puppy 🤣 but hey, peace comes to all of us in different ways and on different days. What about you? ❤️ #LiveHighVibe .

Had a super HIGH VIBE lunch date with my girl @coribanyon today - we walked to the BEACH after eating @poestavern. ✨ I have not been to this beach since Howard died, so this was special, and it made me realize how much I missed it (and him, of course🐶). I love the way I feel at the beach, I need to be there more often 😊 What’s something you LOVE, but haven’t been doing enough? #LiveHighVibe

Where do you take your friends when they visit? We love taking out of towners to Shem Creek, just to sit outside and watch the activity on the water. It helps when there’s a bison burger to eat also 🍔 After stuffing our faces we usually walk along the boardwalk at Shem Creek Park and soak up the sun while we digest 😋 #LiveHighVibe #lovewhereyoulive

Rise and shine ☀️ What’s on your fun-list today? The weather is mild in #Charleston today so I have a feeling we’ll be taking advantage of that 😋

“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you’d never think a negative thought again.” ✨ For the past year I allowed my thoughts to get in the way of my actions. Bad bad bad! 🙅🏻‍♀️ Negative self-talk was sabotaging everything for me, but I finally realized it (hallelujah!!) and am working on changing it 🙌 It is a PROCESS to become aware of your thoughts and how they affect your life. There are many reasons why negative thoughts can creep in, and it’s ok to be down in the dumps sometimes, as long as it doesn’t become a habit or “normal.” I share a bit about this in today’s Story. ❤️ How do you snap out of negative thoughts?

Do you like piña coladas? 🤙🏼☀️ We had our fair share of ‘em here @lagomarresort 😛 There’s just something about a pool bar that makes me want a frozen cocktail.
