Me: “What was your favorite song today at library story time?”
Milly: “The whip and nae nae song.”

Because you need to know about #nrptopknots . 💁🏼‍♀️

I’ve been up since 4:30am (thanks little Lyndon!) ... I washed and curled my hair 🙌🏻 and now I’m sitting on the couch with a candle lit, my journal and Bible in hand. It’s been a while since I’ve had this time all to myself and Jesus. Usually it’s shared with a toddler climbing on my lap while I’m nursing my 3 month old. 🤣
I picked up the book “How’s your Soul” and began to read. And I remembered all at once how needed it is to be refreshed, how healthy it is to REST, how it’s important to really ask yourself: “How is my soul today?”
It took me back to Return to Rest - a retreat I’ve spoken at for two years now. I retreat that I’ve come to love because of the rest and healing it’s brought to me. This image is from that retreat : my view from a tiny cabin in New Hampshire on a frozen lake at sunrise. I’m already looking forward to the retreat again in January!
Take some time today to ask yourself the scary question and honestly answer it: how is your soul today?
And if you’d love an extended time of soul rest and worship and meeting with the Lord who restores our souls completely, you might consider joining me at @returntorest again. It’s the sweetest retreat, and without fail God shows up and does something really special ever single time. 💕 #returntorest #returntorest2018

They are MARRIED. One of my favorite engagement sessions of all time is on the blog today. I love you two a whole lot, @jessray and @kylemlangdon. Also - can you even handle this biker that passed at the perfect moment? 🙌🏻🚴🏼 #jessandkyledowntheaisle #nrpsessions

It’s the fourth one like this. Sam gave us these rings one Christmas while we were still in high school, and they have “forever” engraved on them. At each of our weddings, we have taken this picture - us holding our bouquets with our forever rings. And we’ve been waiting for this day - the fourth picture. Jess’s wedding. Today my best friend and my sister got MARRIED. We walked all through beaufort and we cried our faces off in worship during the ceremony and we danced like goons and we have the FOURTH PICTURE. Today was so, so good. Thank you Jesus. #minkiesforever #jessandkyledowntheaisle

I couldn’t let today pass without saying a few things about this beautiful lady. 1. @oliviasuriano & @andrewsuriano ’s wedding is on my blog after waiting a year! (Why? Because it was her dream to get it published and thanks to @thesoutheasternbride it is now in print! 🎉) 2. She spent the entire day photographing a wedding that I was a bridesmaid in, and goodness did she nail it. 💪🏻👊🏻 3. I just love her a whole lot. She’s been my #nrpbride and she’s on the #nrpteam and she keeps me organized in the #nancyrayshop . Oh did I say that I love her? Because I do. Thank you for serving my sweet family all day long today alongside @calliepittsdavis & @beccakatephotography . It’s always good to be on the other side of the camera!

I LOVE surprises. More than being surprised, I love being the one to surprise someone else. That’s what happened at @oliviasuriano ‘s rehearsal dinner and it was SO much fun. Read the whole story on the blog today! Link in profile 💕 (PS. Her long awaited wedding is hitting the blog tomorrow!! Get ready because it is incredible!) #nrpweddings #nrpbrides #nrpteam #shesaidyessuri

Seeing my work in the pages of the new @southernweddings magazine is such an honor. I’m so grateful! The ladies who put this magazine together pour their hearts into every page. This is the 10th anniversary issue, so RUN and get the latest issue! It’s gorgeous and filled with depth and advice and meaningful celebrations. I’m still savoring every page and I don’t want it to end! #southernweddingsv10

It took me forever to name my new course. But I couldn’t pass up the name when I finally landed on: Foundations in Team Building: A blueprint for the Creative Entrepreneur. You know why? Because of the hidden analogies of “foundations” and “building” and “blueprint”... it spoke so much to my journey with my team. When you build a team, there’s a strong foundation you HAVE to lay. You need a game plan - a blueprint. And you are always building your business and building your people - a win win in my book. This course had my heart from day 1. And the doors are open until Thursday at midnight, then it’s closed up until next year! So if you want to learn more, click the link in my profile! #foundationsinteambuilding #nancyrayshop

Ugh to all the question marks in this post! 🙄 Isn’t it always the hardest to get out the door and go somewhere you love to recharge? It ends up happening at the most inconvenient, busiest time of year, am I️ right? But those are the times we need it the absolute most. Our journey to the cabin was tense and frustrating and I️ was so overwhelmed with all I️ had to do. But I’ve never had a weekend like this one. Life giving words were spoken to one another, business ideas and advice was passed around freely, and oh my word I️ haven’t laughed that hard, that much in a long long time. This past weekend was the reminder I️ needed to MAKE TIME for the good stuff in life. Make time for hiking and French toast and friendships and catch phrase and bonfires and hot tubs and hanging around a fire in your pjs all day. It’s always, always worth it. Love these people. #grandviewvacay

Goodness knows how thankful I am for this man. Happy birthday to my best friend, the one who holds our family together by loving us, protecting us, leading us and providing for us. I can’t wait to watch how God uses you and blesses you this year! I know this: He’s got really really great things for you. I love you @willrray . Happy birthday!!! #millyanddada #lyndonanddada 📷: @elizabethtate_

She’s 110% two years old these days (adorably precious and loving one second, and throwing a tantrum the next), but goodness those cute moments are worth it all. Don’t you want to just put her in your pocket? 😍 #millyraytoday
