Casual floral dress

As I was sitting in my car at 10:40 p.m. attempting to plan out my blog schedule for the week {lol, it is a real thing.. Blogging ain’t no joke.}, I was remembering a CRAZY moment from yesterday that scared the you know what out of me.

As I was cleaning my closet {because it is always a hot mess}, I hear my son, Gideon, running in my room while screaming and crying “He’s got a gun!!! He’s got a gun!!”. The look of terror was written all over his face. My heart sank not knowing what to do, but I calmly asked him “who are talking about, what are you talking about??” Gosh, in my head, I’m thinking that if he {whoever this might be} had a gun, we should all be dead by now. Mike goes in the living room to check out who he might be referring to, AND it’s the shadow of the UPS delivery man through our front door with the signing thingamajig in his hand. Ahhhh, I wanted to scream!!! I just had a heart attack, and it’s just the UPS man delivering me a package. Sheesh. This incident clearly reminded me that when fear takes over we SERIOUSLY do not see clearly. When fear takes over, we don’t make rational decisions.

Bottom line is that we should always be aware of what is going on around us, BUT we shouldn’t let the fear of the unknown, fear of harm, fear of man to direct us and to be our compass. Because, fear will mislead you.

“F.E.A.R. has two meanings: forget everything and run or face everything and rise. Choice is yours.”

Question: What if we invest our entire life into being controlled by fears?? What if we invest our entire life into something that doesn’t really matter or that isn’t even reality??

Eeek!! These are just my thoughts, but I wholeheartedly want to be my guided by my Creator. He has to be my compass. I don’t want to be robbed of life, a beautiful life because of fear. The phrase “do not be afraid” is written in the Bible 365 times to remind us daily to be fearless.

“Danger is real; Fear isn’t real. Fear is a choice and is a product of the thoughts that you created or believed to be true.”

Anywho, this is just a little glimpse into the late night heart evaluations that take place in my world.



I’m also sharing with you a cute summer dress that I absolutely love, and it is selling out quick. It’s under $25 #holla and is so flattering. I love pairing dresses with a denim jacket and cute sandals. I have to admit that mustard isn’t my favorite color on my skin, but when you add that cobalt, I’m swooning. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!! I appreciate each one of you.





  • Angelle! What a great post and message about fear and how to face it! You are right – if we are guided in all things by Him, we have no reason to fear, but only to rise up!!! What a great reminder and encouragement… and that is so funny because I have been pondering this topic lately :), so thank you! As for this look – absolutely gorgeous my friend! Love the print and how you styled it with denim and those lace up heels! You are stunning always girlie!

  • Such a great post! Fear is so real and sometimes hard to ignore, but I’m a strong believer in that nothing will change or become better if you don’t face your fears! That being said, good for your for staying so calm in that situation. I can’t imagine how you must have felt. Anyways, you look gorgeous in this dress and I am loving the blue and yellow color combo!
