Liv Life

Thank you, friends, for your prayers these past days... I am so thankful to share that our hero firefighters have contained the fire significantly and though we're all still in some danger, it's much less. It's been an exhausting, scary, upsetting weekend but thankful for God's peace in the midst of it. 

Today, I have someone special for you to meet! I'm so thankful she's taking over the blog today because I need a couple days to unpack things and settle after all the craziness. I'm pretty exhausted and overwhelmed, honestly. So I'm thankful for sweet Olivia sharing here today! Olivia is such an amazing gal and I really hope you get to know her and become her friend on social media (links below!) She's truly a precious friend and one of my favorite bloggers in this awesome blogging community!

Meet Olivia!
Hey there! After great deliberation, I decided to write this blurb as closely to how I am in real life..and 'Hey-there' is a currently used term of mine. I'm Olivia or pick. I started Liv Life in 2008 at the ripe old age of 16 in order to keep up with my sister, who updated both a family blog and her own personal blog. It was on a whim late one night and has survived 5 years! I think my original purpose for the blog was to record my life for my own entertainment, but as the years have gone on, and I have grown, I realize now that my blog can glorify Christ if I am willing to let Him use it. This past year has been crazy--with both pros and cons, and the Lord has taught me so many things and I love being able to share my heart and encourage other ladies.  Other fun facts: I still live at home with my parents and younger brother. I work full time as a live out nanny for a 4 year old and a 2 year old. I adore ferris wheels, porch swings, thunderstorms, the sounds of summer nights, and camping. 
5 Fun Facts about Liv

1. I love shopping at thrift stores. One of my best deals so far was an adorable pair of J.Crew shorts for $0.29. 

2. Annie Oakley & Laura Ingalls Wilder are my heroines. I actually live in the county where Annie Oakley was born and raisedEvery summer the county has a festival in her honor, complete with a shooting contest for young females to become Miss Annie Oakley. I tried for the title when I was 16. 

3. I showed pigs in 4-H for my last three years of highschool and absolutely loved every moment of it. I should have been the 4-H spokesperson, I loved it so much. 

I love lists and being organized and planning ahead. People laugh at me until they have an emergency and need a safety pin or floss.

5. If I come up with an idea [craft, baking, or otherwise], I have a hard time not acting on it and starting immediately, even if I don't have all the necessary pieces.
