1. I launched a cozy daily encouragement thread on our Facebook page!
Head on over here to check out today's prompt. We're talking about people of influence in our life and how we can be a light for Christ in other's lives! I started this to get my blog a bit more focused since...
2. So Many New Things Coming to/Changing in this Space!
Y'all, get ready. Everything is changing over here. I have a heart to encourage women in every aspect of their lives and I want that to be the focus of this blog so not only am I getting a complete makeover by the lovely Audrey White, but I am also CHANGING this blog's name. (Insert sad and happy faces here!) I will so miss Hot Tea and the Empty Seat but I want this blog to grow into a space where women in all walks of life can come and find truth-based encouragement for those honest and raw, sometimes hard, places in our lives. I wasn't going to mention this but I have big dreams of being an author one day so this is my BIG step of FAITH in transitioning. Y'all, it's scary. But I know that God has laid this desire on my heart for a reason and I am so excited. So.. if you haven't subscribed by email (on my sidebar!) or bloglovin' yet, PLEASE DO!
Here are a few things you can expect in the future: free bible verse printables, tons of prayer series, real life stories of redemption/healing/joy/all the feelings, encouragement in your season whether you are single, engaged, married, divorced... encouragement from a soon to be mom, and much more! The big change will take place in about a month! GET EXCITED!
3. Today is 25 weeks with Sweet Baby K!
This little thing is SO active. She is already so sweet, I can just tell. It's been a great week despite crazy heartburn/acid reflux, cravings of sweets galore (namely homemade choco-chip cookies), and insomnia! Be expecting a pregnancy update soon! :)
4. It's full on scarf season!
I've been living in my blanket scarf lately. It's just so cozy. I'm loving this one and am on the lookout for it's twin that is much cheaper than it's $400 price tag ;)

I started Christmas shopping this week and I've been pretty much begging my hubby to get the Christmas tree & décor out of storage so I can start buying eggnog and all the green + red things! Are you a Christmas lover too?
