I’m so excited to show you the full transformation of this wonderful house that will become the home of the Dainty Pear Co. We have so much to share as we make this place all that we are imagining!
“No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before. Creation brings satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take organized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty.”

Thank you so much for the kind birthday wishes, friends.
My hubby planned for me with a bunch of my girlfriends, and it was so much fun!
So grateful for friends who are more like family.
Have you ever had a professional organizer come to your house? (Or are you already amazing at organizing?) My sweet friend Angie, from A Proper Place, was at my house all week with her team, and it feels amazing after decluttering and having a spot for everything.
I hope this time of year has been uplifting and joyous so far. I do know
that the holidays are not always easy, and at this time of the year there
can be pockets of stress and heartache. If that is how your holiday
season is going, I hope you know that you are not alone, that storms
pass, and even the roughest seas can be calmed.
Hi, friends! Merry (almost) Christmas!

The scriptures are replete with descriptions that can help us evaluate the condition of our heart. Some verses include words like “pure,” “meek,” “lowly,” “broken,” and “contrite.” These words, and many others throughout scripture, give us insight into the Savior’s heart. In order to receive Him into our hearts, surely our hearts must be pure and humble like His. READ FULL POST
