God can even use a dachshund...

I know, I know. The title sounds silly. Maybe even farfetched. But seriously. It's a true statement. At least in my life! In early May, I saw a post on Facebook by a girl I knew of because of church. (I say knew of because we hadn't ever spoken. I knew who she was, and I was familiar with her husband's amazing photography!) Jess needed someone to check on their dog over the weekend. Since I had lurked Jess and Robby's Facebook pages, I knew they had a dachshund and quickly volunteered! (What can I say?! Once you have a weenie dog, you are drawn and attached to the breed!) Jess trusted me to look after their sweet pup that weekend. Once our schedules lined up, we made plans to hang out. Since then, we have gotten to know each other, done a summer Bible study, shared tv shows and meals, and are becoming dear friends. All of that to say, Happy Birthday to Jess Followell!!! I hope your birthday is memorable and amazing. I hope 27 is your best year yet! I am so thankf

Meet the Magnolias - Jessica - REMIX

Where do I even start? What do I even say? (I need this to come out the right way.) It needs to be simple. And true. And just...real. (Also really long, so get comfy. Stick with me.) Two Sundays ago, the sermon at church was about idols. Last week, I stumbled across the AMAZING accounts of lady bloggers who attended a Jesus lovin', blogging  conference I had only heard of a few weeks prior (on this precious lady's blog ). This past Sunday, the sermon was about money.  (I know I'm not making any sense. None of this stuff goes together. Except it does...Don't give up on me yet.) When Meet the Magnolias started, I wanted to blog about everything I care about, my obsessions, and everything I make time to prioritize in my life. Fashion Food Celebrities TV/Movies Music Any and everything pop culture Beauty Magazines I wanted to find fame and fortune (at least enough to work from home) in blogging. I wanted to be able to post amazing outfit p
