what i'm loving today

today, i'm loving a beautiful shop called sea and asters.
i discovered this lovely shop through a treasury listing one day last week and immediately fell smitten.
i just think these teeny tiny plant pods are adorable.

what i'm loving today

my name is sarah grace, and i love etsy.
i love seeing the beautiful things that people create,
and i love adding them all to my wish list!

today, i'm loving these beautiful water color prints by caitlin mcclain, designer and owner of little low studios in austin texas. 

i can't get enough of her "man's best friend" illustration print. 
although personally, i think raider would be a perfect candidate for the letter "r"! :)

an itty bitty baby announcement

cute baby alert

a few weeks again, my sweet friends mandy and travis welcomed their baby girl, amelia belle, into their family. when mandy first posted the newborn photos, i couldn't stop scrolling through them.

putting together this baby announcement for them was a breeze! 
seriously though.  could that baby girl be any cuter?
my iphone photos don't do her justice!

this might just be my new favorite project.

a houston family photo

saturday night, we had one last get together before we started packing.
the last few years have brought us such sweet friends and fun memories,
and we wanted to have everyone over one last time.
of course we had to take a family photo.

when i first came to houston, i remember wondering how i would ever have the type friendships i had in college.  the Lord provided friends so much sweeter than i could have ever imagined.
i'm so blessed to call these people forever friends.
and i can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for us in our new city.

see ya later houston!

if you've followed this blog for any amount of time, you should know by now there is never a dull moment in the chastain household.  bub-hub, raider and i are leaving the beautiful city of Houston and making our new home in Grapevine. 

we are excited to be close to our family and sweet friends,
but we are sad to say "see ya later" to the fantastic life and memories we've made here.

here's to new adventures!
