Happy Friday my friends!! Hope that you have recouped from the 4th. I love celebrating especially when it comes to celebrating our freedom.. and our nation. We are blessed regardless of what we may see and hear on the news.

And, another fact about myself is that I love celebrating my healthy, blooming plants.  AM I alone in being wild about plants?? Currently, I am nurturing a ton of baby cactuses, succulents, two fiddle leaf figs, roses, a lemon tree, a blueberry bush, and a blackberry bush. Y’all, it makes my heart go pitter patter. My favorite baby as of now is those fiddle leaf fig trees. They are the most sensitive plants that I have ever owned. It likes 1-2 cups of water on the same day each week and at the same exact time. It thrives off of a very strict schedule.

I love to go check on each plant and make sure that they are healthy. I (or Mike) look at the soil, add water when needed, check the sunlight, and watch for discoloration or diseases. The maintenance and nurturing matters. They are maturing because they have been in a balanced, consistent environment.

Okay, this isn’t a plant life 101 class so I’ll spare you the lecture. BUT, that healthy, thriving life for us humans requires pretty much the same environment . We were designed to have an appetite for the things of God. When we allow His thoughts, His words, His attitude, His reaction, His heart, His desires to overtake our own, we will see the maturity begin to come forth: healthy heart, mind and soul. Wisdom, balance, security, and growth are the outcome. Come on somebody.. that is what I’m talking about!!!

A healthy appetite and a hungry soul moves God. Our balanced diet is where we will find that overwhelming peace and security: It is well with my soul. The beautiful truth is that He delights in us.. He delights in every detail of our life. That makes my heart skip a beat.

Okay, let’s chat a bit about adding that pop of floral. I have been crushing on oversized, bohemian tunics. They just match my personality so well.

The fit and the print is perfect. 3 ways to style this top:

1) paired with jean shorts for those everyday activities with the kids

2)paired with jeans and heels for date night with the hubby

3)paired with a white denim skirt and wedges for brunch with friends

I linked more of my favorites for you just in case this pink tunic doesn’t match your personality.

I paired this tunic with my favorite shorts, wedges and accessories. And, this hat has been one of my best summer purchases. It adds the perfect pop of cuteness.

    I’ve been mommy-ing succulents for the first time ever this year and I do NOT have a green thumb! I need to take some notes from you. And WOW, what a beautiful concept this is. Appetite, desire, planting, consistency, routine, blooming. Man, oh man…I just adore your heart.

    I ordered this top for a trip to San Fran! I’m so in love but I struggle with sizing from Chicwish. What size do you normally do in there items?

      I usually wear a size small. I always read the measurements though to make sure. But, the tops usually run TTS. 🙂
      I wear this top at least once a week!! I love it!! It will be perfect for San Fran!!

      xoxo,
