New Beginnings.

Dec 31, 2015

Don’t you just love the electricity in the air around New Years Eve? I feel it. The excitement. The buzz. Closing the door on the year behind. Ringing in the year ahead. That feeling of new beginnings and fresh starts. It’s like anything is possible. I love taking that pause before the new year begins, […]

Beautiful Senior photography inspiration {Delight & Be Featured}

Dec 29, 2015

Meredith has done it again, seriously y’all! If you don’t follow Meredith, you need to check her out. Everything about this session is seriously so beautiful, the model, the location, the connection from artist to subject! It was so hard picking what to share here on the blog! I love the way Meredith poses her […]

Changing Hearts through the Arts

Dec 27, 2015

I was told I needed an “elevator speech” about what Delight & Be is all about. A very short one minute explanation. I have a tendency to ramble a bit because I get so excited when people ask! But someone recently asked me, “What would you say Delight is all about in one sentence?” And […]

A Winter Adventure to the Market | Pike’s Place Market

Dec 26, 2015

Let’s be honest. If it’s not raining in Seattle, then something is certainly a little funny with the weather. And on this particular day, it was like many other days. The rain was drizzly and pinging off rooftops and bouncing off foreheads and making the soles of shoes all sorts of a disaster for those who are […]

Merry Christmas!

Dec 25, 2015

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who lived in a land of deep shadows— light! sunbursts of light! You repopulated the nation, you expanded its joy. Oh, they’re so glad in your presence! Festival joy! The joy of a great celebration, sharing rich gifts and warm greetings. The […]

Come In

Dec 24, 2015

The tears roll down my face, as the Christmas lights flicker in the background. The gifts wait under the tree, ready to be unwrapped. But the most important gift – the gift I need more than anything – he waits outside of all the glitter and the hurry for me. He waits in the quiet. […]

Dressing the Holiday Table

Dec 22, 2015

Can you believe it’s Christmas week already?!  Since I’m hosting guests for Christmas at my house this year, I decided to think out of the box when it came to table wear and décor. I have very nice Christmas- themed china for the main course, but for serving appetizers and desserts, I found some fun, […]

What Is Hope?

Dec 21, 2015

What is hope?  Is it wanting to get a good grade on a test?  Is it longing for a husband, someone God has been preparing for you for your whole life?  Is it needing a new car?  Is it having deep desires to do something great, creative, and unique? Wanting something is not hope.  Hope […]

To all Moms of daughters. . .

Dec 20, 2015

Delight & Be’s tagline is REAL. RAW. RELEVANT. The past two weeks, I have shared about being REAL & RAW. Today, let’s chat about what it means to be RELEVANT. This word is a biggie! I like keeping things real and raw, but if they aren’t relevant, the girls aren’t going to listen. As I […]

I Heard the Bells

Dec 17, 2015

“God is not dead nor does He asleep.” I was driving to church early one morning when I heard hose words, right in the middle of my Christmas playlist. From the song “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day,” something about that phrase struck me. I don’t think I’ve ever truly listened to that song […]
