California Dreamin'

Hey there, friends! How was your weekend? I hope it felt long, and was full of laughs and good food. Mr. SP and I ended up taking a last-minute trip to California on Saturday, and are actually flying home today. I've alluded to some personal crappola brewing in my life lately, and the time finally came that I had to deal with it. I'm not trying to be coy, it's just a little raw to talk about yet. Let's just say it involves forgiveness, and making peace. Life is a toughie sometimes, right? But God didn't promise us it would be easy, just that it would be good. I've been leaning on that one lately.

We were able to squeeze in some fun time while in LA, too...like a walk on the beach, hiking through the hills, and a quiet dinner....basically soaking up some of the laid-back California living. I could certainly picture myself moving into Amber Valletta's colorful and cool Santa Monica villa.

I love that her master bedroom is pink...and that her husband is okay with it! Would your significant other go for hot pink on the bedroom walls? You know mine was fine with pale pink in the Dining Room, and even dark pink on the Pool Bath doors, but in the bedroom might be pushing it. What's your favorite thing about her home?

  6. Praying for you Cassie. We all go through rough periods from time to time. Good for you for recognizing you needed to deal with it! And yes, sometimes those very struggles make us stronger and other times we learn we need to move on and change direction. Glad you were able to getaway for a bit.

  14. Hope you're able to find some healing. I don't know your story but the road to forgiveness with my father was a long and broken one. It helped me to know that forgiveness doesn't mean that what he did or said was okay... But rather that I made a choice to let it go.
