*a few pics from the show tonight!
Thank you for everyone that came out tonight to support me, it means the world!! xoxo
At the beginning of the week I mentioned a few leaps of faith Chris and I are taking this summer. The second one is that Chris has been asked to work on 
his first feature film for a couple of months in California. 
This is a HUGE HUGE opportunity for him for a lot of reasons and we really felt like it was something that we needed to do. The tricky part is that he doesn’t get paid unless the film sells…and that could be over a year from now. So, we would need to pay our bills in Dallas AND California for two months while receiving a small income. 
Leap of faith. 
We are trusting He will provide. We have been given a FREE, furnished home to live in while we are in California and hoping that through some projects Chris is finishing up, my art show and A Little Artsy we will be covered.

 We know in our hearts that He can provide in any number of ways if we are in His will.

So, we leave Sept 3 for our long road trip to California! I am excited for the opportnities it will bring and super excited to meet a lot of my California bloggy friends! Not to mention I get to hug my bestie, Gussy when she’s in town for blog sugar :).

    I love how you guys just go for it. It makes me happy to see that your dreams are still coming true AND you have a family. People seem to believe your dreams need to be accomplished before you start a family and I don't think that's true at all. Congrats to you all for the opportunity!

    Casey,

    I have to tell you that your posts specifically about leaps of faith and the struggles to make it in the world really inspire me.
    My husband and I are thinking about taking a giant leap of faith this year of him changing his job. It is such a scary prospect, but I truly believe we can make it if we choose to. I agree about God watching over us.
    Unfortunately due to his job and the surrounding community I haven't felt right about making a post about it n my blog. I'm hoping things will fall into place and then I can share the excitement and anxiety of change with everyone. But until then, I want to thank you for sharing this part of your life with us.

    What an incredible opportunity!! And how fun that you get to be in So Cal for 2 months (there's a lot of jealousy going on over here right now :). Let me know if you need some church recommendations. There are some really great ones out there!

  25. ElisabethCS

    August 12th, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    I didn 't know you were from Dallas! That's where I grew up! You looked so familiar. Wonder if we know some of the same people. Does Shady Grove Church ring a bell?

    Hi Casey,
    What exciting news!! My husband and I lived in CA for a year after we were married. Where are y'all going to be? I know of a fabulous church in Orange County…it's a small church but full of young families! It's one of the things we miss most about living there. I'd love to pass along the info if you are in that area.
    Best of luck to you!!

    i've been a blog follower for some time now. i LOVE your blog.

    so honest. so precious. you live life to the fullest and love even more.

    your little family is gorgeous and congrats on the up.coming addition.

    you're a beautiful mommy. inside & out.

    going out on a limb here… but i've always thought you'd be a huge addition to my women team. and you've been on my "chicken list" for some time too. but i work from home doing what's called… queens of green. you can find me on fb… https://www.facebook.com/pages/Queens-of-Green/204326509612072

    it could be something you can always do at home with your kids and earn a great residual income too.

    i was in the exact same situation you were once, and i'm forever thankful to our heavenly father for sending me such a huge blessing!

    whether it's something you're interested or not… that's totally fine.

    think you're gorgeous! and wish you guys the best in all that you do!

    I just started visiting your blog because I read Gussy's everyday and I have been looking for blogs to advertise on coming this fall.

    Anyways I know what it is like to take a leap of faith and there is a quote in Ecclesiastes 5:2(my favorite quote) that says "Dreaming instead of doing is foolishness…"
    I don't know you, but as a fellow mother, wife, independent business owner, child of God, and blogger my prayers will be with you and your family as you take the leap of faith to turn your dreams into actions.

    Sarah

    p.s. I live in California (Orange County) and not sure where you will be, but if you need any yummy food referrals let me know

    I enjoy that you and your husband aren't afraid to just trust in God's provision. That's what my husband and I are doing right now. We're both mostly unemployed (he works a part time job, I have an Etsy shop but zero sales so far). We're expecting our first little one in January and if my husband gets the job he interviewed for, we'll be moving 5.5 hours away in less than 2 weeks. So of course, we are also just trying to live by Faith and not by sight.
