What's Up Wednesday (March Edition)

Happy Wednesday friends! I am excited to link up with MelShaeffer, and Shay for the "What's Up Wednesday" Link up! I have so enjoyed reading these ladies posts and am excited to join in! It is so fun to connect with so many other ladies who are doing this each month!

What We're Eating this Week... 
After so many years of having stomach issues due to Lyme Disease I am so excited to be eating a more "well-rounded" diet, specifically in regards to raw vegetables. I shared on instagram over a year ago that there was a point in this journey that I had a GI specialist share that "there was nothing more that he could do, I would never get healthy or be able to eat raw food again and that I should accept my lot". For days, weeks, and years I stared out my bedroom window wondering if his words were true and yet begging the Lord for healing. And slowly SLOWLY SLOWLY I started to heal and am still slowly healing but am now able to eat raw foods, including my 6 cups of greens (literally) that I eat everyday to help my body full heal. Healing takes place one day at a time in the small and big steps and every time I look at raw food I remember how far the Lord has brought me.

What I'm Reminiscing About... 
My beautiful sister's quick visit earlier this month! So much happened since the day that we escaped to the cabin in the woods that I am blessed remembering the joy of that time! 

What I'm Loving... 
Facetime!! I shared yesterday on my facebook page that this is truly a beautiful invention. I know, I know. Some of you are shaking your heads at why it took so long to discover this but it is truly wonderful! Yesterday I had the opportunity to catch up with this beautiful lady and it was such a beautiful encouragement to my heart!

What I've Been Up To...
If you follow me on instagram than you know that this past month has been a whirlwind in so many different ways. I continue to ask for prayer for all of the things that I mentioned in my last "Notes from the Porch" personal health update. Thank you so so so much!

What I'm Dreading... 
Let's be honest... getting a port. I would welcome any encouragement that anyone has heard or experienced? Thanks friends! I appreciate your prayers for all of this!

What I'm Working on... 
Lots and lots of new items for the shop and a couple of exciting surprises that I will be sharing in the next few weeks! I can't wait to share with y'all!!

What I'm Excited About... 
As I shared on Monday, I am so honored and humbled to be apart of the International Wholistic Missions Conference in May this year! You can read more about this by clicking HERE! I also can't wait to share some exciting new projects that I have been working on with y'all in the upcoming days and weeks ahead!

What I'm Watching/Reading... 
I have an entire post coming out this week about this book, but as I shared on instagram, this book, "And it was Beautiful" is absolutely wonderful. Words fail me at the impact it has had on my life. It is absolutely amazing. 

What I'm Listening to... 
I shared this several months ago but if you haven't had the chance to listen to this beautiful song, "Jesus I am resting" yet, take the three minutes and do it right now. I promise you will be incredibly blessed! (Want to find out more about the Wissmann Family and check out more of their music? You can find their website HERE!)

What I'm Wearing... 
This scarf from ASOS is amazing. Y'all know my love of scarves and this one for this chilly winter in the north has been something I wear pretty much wear every.single.day. It is amazingly soft and warm, I love the pop of red color, is great to dress up or dress down and is a great transition piece for the winter to spring months! 

What I'm looking Forward to Next Month... 
Seeing how the Lord has answered the prayer request that I mentioned HERE! It is so exciting to place our unknown future days in the hands of the One who guides and lovingly leads us.

My Best Spring Cleaning Tip...
I actually just saw this on a friends facebook page and LOVED it. Basically for the year of 2016 she has committed to giving away, selling, or donating 2016 items from her home. I saw this and immediately was like "DONE"! Y'all know how much I love being organized and yet still can't believe all of the things that I have. I am jumping on this tip! Can't wait to share with y'all the progress in the upcoming months! 

I would love to know your answers to these questions friends! Share your thoughts below in the comments!! *smiles* Happy Wednesday!
