Some of our friends from church, Bryson and Emily, had the amazing experience and blessing of adoption this past January. Their new little girl, Evyn, came from Ethiopia and she has clearly been a light in their life (based on her smile alone, I can see why).

They just put together an incredible video that shares their journey, and it's definitely worth watching. Just being a part of their story has blown me away, and they do such a great job reminding us that adoption is a rescue, just as Christ rescued us.

May Merriment

Sorry it's been so long since I've said anything! I blame it on this new little guy:

Yes, we got a puppy. His name is Duncan and he's a lab-mix. He certainly is a rascal, but he's precious and has quite the personality. We've been pretty preoccupied as of late, but in a good way :)
On another note, I want to be sure you all know about some Stella & Dot deals that I'm offering this month! If you order a piece of jewelry at under the hostess name "May Jewelry", you'll get a flat shipping rate of only $5.95! Believe me, some of the jewelry can be heavy and this pays off!

Also, if you order by May 31st, I'll put you in the running for a free pair of earrings. It will be worth it! If you are interested in hosting a trunk show to get some amazing jewelry credits, e-mail be at

Not only that, but there is some great jewelry on sale right now!

Bloom Flower Necklace $62

Berry Cocktail Ring $19!
