Hi friends! 

Thanks to Drive STI, I had the most fun driving the beautiful 2014 Kia Cadenza recently! I loved so many things about this vehicle, and really enjoyed driving it.

Check out the review video I filmed sharing my favorite features! {thanks to my sweet guy for helping me film!} 

 Features I loved about this beautiful vehicle: 

  • 3.3 Direct Injected V6 Engine  
  • Smart Key / Push to Start 
  • 18 " Alloy Wheels
  • Leather Seat Trim {luxury!} 
  • Bluetooth Wireless Technology {helps to stay super safe on the road} 
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Heated front seats {since I am always cold!} 
  • Easy-to-use navigational system and with 8 inch display
  • Back-up warning system
  • Heated Power-Folding Mirrors 
  • Siruis XM Radio {so fun!} 

I truly loved driving this car. I've been spending time in Santa Barbara with Cowboy {hence the photos and video on the pier and State Street!} and it was the perfect beach car, as well fun to drive around the Los Angeles area too. I highly recommend this vehicle. It's practical and also feels super luxury! 

*** this 2014 Kia Cadenza is priced at $35,100.00

Oh my dear, sweet readers. What a wonderful whirlwind this past month has been! My heart is full and I'm very thankful for some beautiful things the Lord has been doing in my life. I'm honestly blown away by His grace, goodness, and faithfulness. 

As I said, I come to you with a full heart. If you follow me on Instagram, you've surely seen my announcement and posts all about 'Cowboy' and parts of our story so far. Yes... I am dating a sweet, godly, servant hearted, godly cowboy all the way from Oklahoma {who I met on Instagram...!} and am over the moon happy. 

So... as you can guess, this is why I've been MIA lately. A little distracted, a lot excited, and my head's been waaaaay but in the clouds. But, friends, in this season I want to share with you more of my life and story. More of the amazing details the Lord has and is weaving together - taking broken pieces of my heart and restoring them again... remembering lost parts of my dreams and redeeming them. It's been amazing. Breathtaking. To see the way God has specifically answered prayers and remembered them. If you've followed my blog for any length of time, you know I became somewhat of "The Purity Blogger", "The Dating Blogger", and mostly - "The Singleness Blogger" - I've worn my heart on my sleeve and have been very open about the way I've chosen to live my whole life, the dreams I have for my future life and 'man', and the "not settling" attitude I've embraced and lived. And so, I know many of you dear readers have been encouraged even from afar in seeing God bring this amazing man into my life. I hope you are encouraged to wait and not settle for second best .. ever. His best is so much better than ours.

More is coming. More parts of the story, more pictures, more about Cowboy {and his uhhhmazing music} and also a bit of a rebrand, "Spring Cleaning" if you will of this little space, and some new design and features. I'm excited.

Until then, let me share with you a little something I shared with my friends on Instagram this morning: 

' i think about the years I spent just passing through. i'd like to have the time i lost and give it back to you. but you just smile and take my hand, you've been there you understand. it's all part of a grander plan that is coming true. every long lost dream led me to where you are. others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars pointing me on my way into your lovin arms - this much i know is true: that God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you. ' 

/////   o n e month of dating Cowboy today + i'm very, truly grateful. for his heart for Jesus + serving people. for the spark + romance. for playing together + laughing like a couple little kids. for the dreams. for the deep conversations about real things, good things + hard things. for the stories exchanged about the last 26 + 27 years we've lived apart. for the wild + free adventures. for visiting six states + roadtripping. for playing music together + worshipping. for meeting each other's 'people'. for the red dirt roads, sandy beaches, snowy mountains + more coffee dates than i can count. for getting to know his likes + favorites + dislikes. for being real + shedding tears + sharing our hearts. for how fun it is to date him + see what our God has up His sleeve. oh how glad i am that my IG friend@amyhersheyskisses 'matched us up' by 'tagging' me on his mama's funny IG photo of her 'single boys' at the end of december. thankful that@cindy1962 wrote me, telling me sweetly all about her precious son + family, + that she felt a 'mother's instinct' that we had to 'meet.' and how thankful i am that, from day one, when my bestie mama + sis saw his picture, said 'you h a v e to reply + talk to him!!!' + cheered + gave advice as i got to know a guy 2,000 miles away. thankful that he commented to me, chatted, asked for me email, then #... .+ now ...well, we're here. God blesses our broken roads in ways we could never dream up. + i'm smiling about it today. 

Love you all! I'll be back soon :)
Til then, have you downloaded my book?
