brown eyed fox

IMG_6659.jpg

i'm often asked...
why the "brown eyed fox"?
well...
i got my brown eyes from my parents at birth & the new fox name from my hubby.
so i thought... 
hmmmm... brown eyes... fox name...
"wHy nOt"!
kind of silly... kind of fun... and my gran-mama thought it was a hoot!
i'm a mom of two fun girls... they keep me VERY busy.
.
been married to my indiana raised hubby for sixteen years.
.
a born & raised TEXAN...
but have been lucky enough... since being married... to live in & experience...
ohio... kentucky... colorado... and wyoming.
now that we're back living & settling in texas...
looking back on it all... no way we'd trade our time and the great people we met...
it was truly a GIFT.
.
 if someone asked me to describe myself...
i think i'd have a heck of a time.
i feel like we're all so multi leveled & layered.
really.. aren't we?
so many parts... pieces... and experiences have shaped us...
made us who we are.
and yet... with each day... we change a bit more.
always learning... always evolving.
pretty special how God made us... each so unique.
.
i'm a pretty simple gal...
i love a good pair of comfy jeans... my trusty boots... and coffee in the morning.
i do like to get my grays covered every so often.
(because good grief they've been coming out of the woodwork lately)
.
i like things simple... not a lot of fluff. 
in what i put on in the morning and what i surround myself with at home.
i always say... neutral with a pop.
of color... a surprise... a twist.
ha!
i guess in my design style AND my personality.
.
i'm generally shy in nature... crowds can make my stomach flop...
that is until i get my feet wet...
then i'll be the one doing the wobble.
yep.
.
i get to spend much of my time doing what i love.
creating pieces for my etsy shop...
making & tweaking our home...
being a mom to my blessings...
serving where and when i can...
and learning to be a better me... while see where God leads.
.
i feel blessed to get to set my feet on the floor each morning...
and see all He has in store.
the good... the not so good... the down right wonderful... it's ALL a blessing.
.
this blog is where i share my thoughts...
our home...
what i might be creating...
and often times the heart i wear on my sleeve.
.
although this is a small peek into our everyday...
i do my best to let it reflect us... who we are... who we pray to BE.
thanks for stopping by... for taking a peek... i love that you did.

blessings + hugs
