LAURANNE BOYD  saved by grace. curious creative + people gatherer — because we’re better together. a dash of handlettering, a whole lot of beauty in the everyday.✨

// a little lettering. as an empath through and through, i teared up as i first heard the story that inspired this piece. i am so grateful that lettering allows me to be a part of your stories in such an intimate way.

// someday I’ll look back on this season and see it as one of my greatest, heart-shaping gifts. it’s been one of the most refining periods of my life and lately I’ve been processing this gift of time. it’s the most valuable resource God gives each of us; it’s a wild thing dancing both within and outside of our control and once it passes, we can’t get it back. “how do we live well?” how do we not waste the time we have?

this morning, I came across what I believe is my personal answer to these questions. “never be afraid to be the one who loves the most.” thank you, @donnapisani. it’s advice from a couple married for four decades sharing how they endured the test of time, but I think it’s also a reminder to you and I.

I want to end my days having lived a life where I wasn’t afraid to love the most, even when it meant vulnerability and facing fears. championing and leaning into the people God has entrusted to my path helping them uncover their best selves, and staying the journey when it’s not easy. choosing to love to our limits when it’s the last thing we desire. man, it’s hard but full of failed attempts but i think it’s worth fighting. time well spent...

// here's my hunch: nobody's secure, and nobody feels like they completely belong. those insecurities are just job hazards of being human. but some people dance anyway, and those people have more fun. - @glennondoyle

// paris, france. the memories of this place still arrest me. these quaint, tucked away side streets full of the most beautiful, ordinary details. our eyes wide open to spot the next detail and the next. paris, you are every bit as magical as i’d hoped, and i can’t wait to return to you.

// the tastiest, prettiest little blood orange scones there ever were, thanks to @ahappyfooddance’s recipe magic. also: anyone else surprised to see that tomorrow is valentine’s day?! where does the time fly? 💛 #frommykitchen

// to wrestle with guilt + shame is to be human, but your calling is better + bigger than those lies. you can trust that you are in safe hands, well loved, and standing on solid ground regardless of what the world throws at you today.

“you are precious in my sight and honored, and I love you, I will give nations instead of your life. do not fear, for I am with you. I will bring descendants from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, “give them up!” And to the south “do not hold them back!” Bring my sons from far away, and my daughters from the ends of the earth — everyone who bears my name and is created for my glory. I have formed them; indeed, I have made them.” - isaiah 43

// grace embraces you before you prove anything, and after you’ve done everything wrong. every time you fall down, at the bottom of every hole is grace. grace waits in broken places. grace waits at the bottom of things. grace loves you when you are at your darkest worst, and wraps you in the best light. grace seeps through the broken places and seeps into the lowest places, a balm for wounds.

soul-soothing truths line these pages and we are grateful for them, @annvoskamp.

// this gorgeous door belongs in a hilltop village in provence, france. i love its imperfectly but beautifully worn details from many decades of being used as it was designed. let our lives be so, too... ✨

// words i love and want to forever return to: we don't learn to love each other well in the easy moments. anyone is good company at a cocktail party. but love is born when we misunderstand one another and make it right, when we cry in the kitchen, when we show up uninvited with magazines and granola bars in an effort to say ‘I love you.’ thank you, @sniequist. #frommykitchen

// sunday scribbles and reflection on calling.✨what do you think about this perspective?
.
@rebekahlyons has a take on calling that’s been clarifying and helpful to me through the years. it’s this: take a look at your story and life experiences. find the place where your talent and your burdens collide, and there you’ll find calling.

// i’ve been itching to try these homemade strawberry pop tarts from @thepioneerwoman. did you have a favorite flavor as as a child? cinnamon sugar was my jam! if you’re looking for a fun and easy recipe for, this one is perfect. and these are doubling as a little surprise for a friend who’s been working extra hard on a big project. ✨💪🏻🙃🤫

// cheers to the new year and to you, friends! 🥂 let’s choose what matters MOST and pursue that in 2018. you are the only one who gets to show up for your one precious life. here’s to (believing for) the best year yet! ✨
