A Glimpse Into Our Life + Magnolia Wreath

You greatly encouraged us to share some more personal things, so here is a peek into the recent weeks of our life! We hope you enjoy!

” Fear not ye: for I know that you seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here for He is risen, as He said! Come, see the place where the Lord lay. ” Matthew 28 : 5-6

I’ve always loved Easter because of the hopefulness of it. This year I was especially blessed by what Jesus did for me. The intense pain and grief He faced was for me. But the most amazing part of Easter is that Jesus didn’t stay in the tomb. In one swift action He defeated and rose to give me life! If He wouldn’t have risen, salvation wouldn’t have been completed. It is only through this wonderful sacrifice on the cross and triumphant victory over death that I am what I am. This is what Easter means to me!

All of we girls were together for a short time and had a special time at the coffee shop! I am so grateful for encouraging and inspiring friends. We are designed for healthy relationships. Ones that upbuild, and push you closer to Jesus!

We had the privilege of capturing a kitchen session for a friend; making macarons! She allowed us the learning experience of making a batch in her kitchen also. The detailed shots of the food were so fun for something different. I was happy with some of the shots we got! Photography is so fun ya’ll!!!

We were blessed by a friend who invited us girls over for a relaxing and special day. She made such a yummy lunch; Tostadas and crepes with cream and fresh strawberries! If you have never tasted tostadas I would highly recommend them!

And on that same special day with our friend, she showed us how to make magnolia wreaths. Right from her own bush in the yard! They are really beautiful and fairly simple to make. So we thought that we would share how we did it. The pictures will hopefully be a little visual help.

1: Pick lots of nice leaves

2: Collect a empty wreath and wire

3: Tie three similar sized leaves into a bundle. Make enough bundles to cover the whole wreath.

4: Wire the magnolia bundles onto the wreath with each one overlapping the other.

5: Continue unto the whole wreath is filled in. Spread the leaves so that it looks even. You may need to hot glue the leaves in order to keep in place. They are so simple and pretty! They will eventually dry and turn to a coppery brown that looks fallish. If you do not want a fall wreath you can spray paint them green again so it keeps its fresh look.

Welcome! We are two sets of sisters that are best friends; longing to live the purpose and design that God has specially planned for every one of us. We would love to have you come along with us as we learn what it looks like to be a true woman glowing with an inward beauty that comes from our Heavenly Father.

  1. Thanks for sharing! Looks like you’ve all been having fun. You’re very blessed that, wherever you are, the restrictions allow you to still get together as friends. Right now in Alberta we can only get together with people outdoors or at church. No inviting people over or meeting at coffee shops! Oh, well; this too will pass, and God is still good. 🙂
