😚How are you, My Sweet IG Lovelies? Do you see something different? EEK! I’m so excited! It’s my new rug from @loloirugs 💕 Look how much it changed this room!! Can you see how incredible it is from there? It’s hand woven 100% wool and simply marvelous 😍 I love how it updates the room. Now I need a new couch (or two) 🙈 and on it goes...😉
.
Thank you for all your beautiful comments recently (and for turning on your post notifications so you don’t miss my posts). Your support of my IG journey truly melts my heart. 💕 I appreciate every single like and especially when you take the time to comment...it means so much 😘 Have a blessed night!

🙏 Learn to enjoy life more. Relax, remembering that I am God with you. I crafted you with enormous capacity to know Me and enjoy My Presence. When My people wear sour faces and walk through their lives with resigned rigidity, I am displeased. When you walk through a day with childlike delight, savoring every blessing, you proclaim your trust in Me, your ever-present Shepherd. The more you focus on My Presence with you, the more fully you can enjoy life. Glorify Me through your pleasure in Me. This you proclaim My Presence to the watching world. ~Sarah Young, Jesus Calling (see verses Matthew 1;23, John 10:10-11 🙏
.
If you feel my presence a little less here on IG it is because of this...God is calling me and I am listening. I have always felt God’s purpose for me here...my success is all from God for His plan, His purposes. This has not changed, but I hear Him calling me to reprioritize my life and my time. Instagram can be part of my life but it must come lower on my list of priorities. I ask for your support. I know how IG works and without the huge amount of time dedicated you may see my posts less. Please turn on your post notifications for my account so you can find them. As ever your comments (shares and likes) are your greatest ways to actively support my continued efforts. I am so very grateful 🙏I remain committed because I love you all 🙏💕😘
.
I am sharing for #thedesigntwinslove on this beautiful Monday a perfect summertime view! I’m giddy with delight gazing on my friend’s farmhouse porch. This is Sara @simplysoutherncottage 💕 please give Sara some extra IG love and support! She is #onetofollow 💕

🙏Keep looking to Him...your path is perfectly marked and He loves you more than any of us can imagine...knowing this stay strong and faithful...He tests those He marks for greatness 🙏😇
.
🙏 When something goes wrong, whether you stubbed your toe or you face great crisis and everything in between, nothing happens in this world that God hasn't ordained. Often we question and wonder why....He has many reasons for His plans but always one of the reasons is so we will come to Him 🙏 He loves us immeasurably and has created us to be in relationship with him...deep, loving, faithful relationship. He does not want us to live this life without Him. Our challenges are aimed to help us grow but also to bring us to our knees, before God 🙏
.
We are imperfect people in an imperfect world...only God himself is perfect. When you are challenged let your first reaction be prayer 🙏 Ask, "How would you have me respond Lord?" "How would Jesus react?" Trust, have courage! Lean on Him, Take His courage and strength and you will not be afraid.🙏
.
🙏No matter what we face in this life we do not face it alone. Christ is right there, willing to carry our burden if only we ask...we must invite Him in...🙏 Prayers, My Friends, for hope, courage and growing faith 🙏💕 .

I want my refrigerator to look like this 😳 I mean, is that too much to ask? Can you even imagine haha? I like to imagine! 😉 Ok, so even though this may not be real life 😅 I still am inspired! (Swipe left to see more organizational beauty) Recently my friend Kristy @kristywicks reorganized her kitchen and fridge and all I can so is, Wow, Girlfriend! Can you come over to my house next? 😍
.
I thought that having a see-through glass refrigerator door was going to make me keep my fridge more organized and I was wrong 🙈😆 But I am going to get better...promise! I am a very clean, tidy person. But I’m not that organized 😬 Do you consider yourself a tidy person? An organized person? It’s fascinating to me...I want to hear😚
Welcome to the weekend, Sweet Friends! #thedesigntwins #thedesigntwinslove .

Jodie @jodie.thedesigntwins and I had a FULL day on the phone today...even more than usual 😆🙈...what were we doing?? Brainstorming! That’s right...bouncing ideas off each other for hours! While one of us was spouting ideas the other one was scribbling (and then we’d swap rolls 😉) Such fun to create in new ways! And as always, such fun to do it together 👯‍♂️ Of course we can’t wait to share the results of our brain storming because it involves YOU! Jodie is so funny...I told her to keep it under her lid (so to speak) until we had the details worked out and she was all “oh no, I won’t say anything”...and of course she almost gave it all away already 🙈 Well, I sure know my sister!😉
.
Speaking of creating here is my newly restyled family room. Can you see all the changes I made?? This might be a temporary rug but I’m loving the look for now 👍
.
.
Have an impeccable evening sweet friends 😚😚 with love, Julie #thedesigntwins #thedesigntwinslove .

My most lovely and amazing friend Becky @becky.cunningham.home had her IG account hacked, years of creation and nearing 100K followers GONE...😭😭😭 If y’all know Becky she is THE SWEETEST and such a talent. With no response from her many requests from IG she has bravely begun again. I can’t even imagine the stress, frustration, sadness she feels right now to have all that she created taken away from her. I do know that we can all rally around her and lift her back up because WE HAVE THAT POWER! Please 🙏 let’s show Becky that we love her and that she belongs here! I’m counting on all you sweet friends 😉😚💕💕💕💕💕 with gratitude, Julie #thedesigntwins #thedesigntwinslove .

Asking the question tonight: Why are you on IG? If you’re a private account, are you here to be inspired? Entertained? Make friends and connect? Maybe a little of all of the above😉👍 If you have a public account your reasons may be expanded beyond this list. Some of us are here to grow awareness for our blogs, our talents, our brand, our companies or to market and sell specific products. We are all here for a variety of reasons and hopefully a combination. Whatever your goals or reasons I hope you lead your Instagram journey with joy because without it, it’s a very long road. It’s a very long road regardless but when you weave intrinsic joy into your daily actions you have a much better chance of staying the course. Jodie @jodie.thedesigntwins and I were talking today on her live video (still available to watch on her feed) about the challenges and realities of Instagram, the tenacity it takes etc. .
Jodie and I love Instagram, as we hope you all know, and we love it because we love all of you. To us Instagram is more about connecting in real ways to you than it is about home decor (although that’s fun too 😉) Thanks for letting me ramble a bit tonight ☺️...(and you’re like, doesn’t she always ramble ? 😆😬)
.
Speaking of inspiration, I hope you enjoy this stunning eye candy! My friend Denise @themodestfarmhouse shared it a while back but she sadly didn’t know the origin. If anyone does let me know and I’ll be sure to add.

Have a gorgeous night my gorgeous friends 😘💕💕 love, Julie #thedesigntwins #thedesigntwinslove .

Sunny days in Seattle...let’s just say they are very appreciated! ☺️👍 .
🙏 I have been struggling with an intense migraine since the middle of the night. Whenever I am in pain I immediately think that God is trying to get my attention...either to turn to Him or to slow down, usually both. I prayed in the middle of the night for sleep and He gave it to me. So this morning I am just praying and calm and full of God’s unending love. His plan is perfect, this I know for certain. Physical pain is a small thing when I know I have His unending love. He sends me into gratitude that my migraine has a beginning and an end. There are those who suffer chronically with pain, those who don’t have the peace of His love, those who struggle daily in all kinds of ways...and my pain today is simply to give me perspective...to remind me of my many blessings....like the rain in Seattle. It makes me appreciate the sunny days 🙏
.
I pray that your struggles give you strength and perspective. God has a perfect plan: to grow you into the person He created you to be. Remember that our growth doesn’t happen on the sunny days but as we endure the rain and the pain. 🙏
.
I love you all. 😚Blessings always, my dear ones, with love and gratitude, Julie #thedesigntwins #thedesigntwinslove .
