Plants Grow in the Dark

One week after an unusual bout of steady rain for several days, the plants were wild with growth. The radish leaves hung over the sidewalk, begging to be cut and pickled into kimchi. The red lettuce was plenty for salads and wraps. The kale and chard were robust, and the mint quickly took over its part of the land.

A New Look + Giveaway

IMG_0676 It’s the first day of my favorite month of the year, and I am so happy that the routine-less, busy summer is over. I become a mess when I’m without structure, so I am more than ready to get back into our normal rhythm of life!

I love everything about September. It signals the beginning of new things- a new school year, a new season (my favorite one), a new year in our marriage, and today the beginning of a new look for my blog. I finally got the courage to leave Blogger and start a new life with WordPress, and I have no regrets! I also snagged this gorgeous design from Bloom Blog Shop, and I’m so grateful for people like Kelsey who have the skills and talent to create beautiful things.

To celebrate, I want to give away a few of my favorite things- 3 vintage Naptime Diaries prints, 5 “Shine Love” gold tattoos from A Shiny Reflection Print Shop, and a $10 Starbucks gift card. Also, Becki from A Shiny Reflection Print Shop wants to give YOU 20% off at her store when you use the code 20FROMGRACE!

Enter below for a chance to win the goodies! Happy September!
