Create Flower Arrangements on a Budget

Flowers seem to be synonymous with Valentine’s Day, but how can we create beautiful arrangements on a budget? I asked a veteran floral designer from Kroger to show us how and his tips just might surprise you!

Enneagram & Relationships

The enneagram certainly has become a conversation starter in many circles, but what do you do with that knowledge once you discover it?

Jackie Brewster, a certified Enneagram Coach and Experiential Specialist, is here to teach us the benefits of using the Enneagram as a tool to better understand not only ourselves, but also our partners.


Before I Go, I Need You to Know: Love is a Calling

Love. It’s what February is all about, right?

But what about if you don’t have love in your life? Or worse yet, what if we love deeply, but get hurt by that love? What then?

I can tell you from first-hand experience, I found myself in that very place not long ago.

God never promised love would be easy.
He never promised love would be consistent without ebbs and flows.
And He certainly never promised that we’d figure it out this side of heaven.

What God did promise is that He will love you with an everlasting love, that He will never give you more than you can bear and that “we love because He first loved us”.

And though we may never fully comprehend the how, why or what of the word ‘love’, we can rest assured that nothing we are facing is outside of the reach of our all-knowing & all-seeing Heavenly Father.

While none of us are perfect, we serve a God who is, and we were made in His image. 

So for those of you who don’t feel loved or have lost your will to love this month, I encourage you to go back to the source of all love. Love is not just a feeling, it’s a calling

Are you ready to answer the call?

I wore the Kay Babydoll Dress in Cantaloupe on this month’s show

I know, I know…this doesn’t exactly look like a dress to be worn in Nashville in February. But the moment I put it on, I knew I had to have it.

I don’t own anything in this cantaloupe color and the fit was comfortable, flattering, and effortless. Plus, it has pockets! Need I say more?

One other note: I’m a pretty true size 14 right now, but I’m wearing a size 12 in this dress. I liked where the bust and hem hit better in the 12. It’s also very forgiving.

These filigree gold hoops were the perfect accent for the eyelet in my dress this month. And because I went with such big hoops, I kept the necklace simple and paired it with a matching heart cuff.
