new music | new video

Hello dear friends!

I've been lamenting my lack of blog posts lately, alas, life has been a little nuts over the past few weeks and unfortunately, I've had to take a step back. I'm working on some new posts and content for the upcoming months, but until then, I am beyond excited to reveal the result of our "not-so-secret" video shoots with Oceanwide Studios. Andy and Brad not only did the video, they shot both of my sister-in-law's weddings in 2011, so they are practically family at this point! I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to work with them and to have such a beautiful video we're all proud to share. You can watch the video here, and I hope you won't be too shy to share it with all of your friends! :)

Tweet about it, share it on Facebook, send a friend the YouTube link, and enjoy the video below!

music monday: shadowfeet

I hope you had a great weekend! We were able to lead music at our church on Sunday, and being with our church family is always such a blessing. Jordan and I are increasingly thankful to have found a church family whose one goal and focus at every gathering is to simply lift high the name of Jesus and make Him famous. This gospel-living oriented focus has deeply impacted our lives on every level, and I'm so encouraged to go into my week with the confidence that Christ truly gives us the power to abide in Him! You're probably familiar with the lovely and talented Brooke Fraser in some facet, be it her work with Hillsong or her stunning solo projects, and I'm sharing a favorite video after the jump!

this weekend...

This week feels like it's flown by! We've had lots going on between Labor Day, my birthday, our weekly COM Group and a few other activities, plus trying to get caught up on errands and housework! I hope you all had a lovely week, and that many of you were able to enjoy having an extra day off on Monday. This weekend we'll be at home, and we're looking forward to spending time with our church family. I have a feeling we'll be keeping an extra close eye on Lorelei as well, as she's been in full two-year-old force this week! Lots of errant scribbles, spills, and stubborn attitudes have been keeping us on watch (and trying to keep from laughing at her cuteness and thus encouraging her naughty behavior!). A few fun links after the jump...

good things

This week's good things post is a birthday edition, since I turned 27 yesterday! Life has been so busy lately that it kind of snuck up on me this year, and it's starting to sink in that I'm much closer to 30 than I am to 20 these days. Yesterday was so lovely, and it was a great reminder of how much I have to be thankful for! A celebratory good things list after the jump...
