Fun fact: I sold/gave away all of our old Christmas decor this year. It was like something snapped in me & I couldn’t even look at it anymore. Oddly it reminded me of past Holiday seasons where I was overly decorating I think in replace of dealing with the feelings of approaching Christmas after miscarriages & so much loss. This year I’ve made so many changes, most that I haven’t even shared, but that is one that I’m not ashamed to say that I did. Our home feels fresh, alive, & more like “us”... no extra frills or bells to make up for what we are lacking, but only things that enhance our life & that we truly love. God has been so good to us this year & our hearts are alive with hope that God will be bringing us that squishy baby through adoption & we can’t wait! Thank you to all of you who have supported us near and far as we start this journey. Love you all so big!! Today on the blog you can see the rest of this space & see our video on it: LizMarieBlog.Com - link in my profile. Oh, & thank you for entering my #lmbpresets giveaway!! @athomeonsweetcreek you are the preset winner! You were so encouraging & excited with us!! Email me at [email protected] to get your preset pack! No worries to those who didn’t win.. we will be doing more giveaways for the presets soon. #whitecottagefarm#cozywhitecottage

My heart is so full from the support y’all have show for our presets. I hate to say it out loud, but approaching the holidays without a child in our house again this year had me feeling a little “bah-humbug” but yesterday’s launch gave me a little pep in my step and got me excited for the holidays again. Thank you for that gift. Today on the blog I shared this Christmas tablescape in our casa: LizMariemarieblog.com - link in my profile. See how I mixed some of my vintage finds with some fresh greens for a nostalgic cozy Christmas space. Head to the blog to get inspired!! #whitecottagefarm Ps. This photo is edited with our “bear” preset available on the blog.

LAUNCH ANNOUNCEMENT!: You guys. I feel so nervous sharing this with you because it’s kind of my baby. You see.. I have this other passion that I rarely talk about, because though I do share a lot with you, there are many many many things I don’t share that I love to do as well. One of those things is editing photos. I AM OBSESSED!! Not because I think I’m great at it but because it’s become another creative outlet for me that I’ve become quite passionate about. I’ve been getting asked daily for a while now how I edit my photos & so I’m finally excited to offer you exactly that... my Lightroom presets that I’ve tweaked and tweaked over the year & have been using on all my photos. They are now available for sale on my blog: LizMarieBlog.Com - link in my profile. There you will find three of my go-to presets that I use for photos here on Instagram and my blog. It’s kind of like sharing a piece of my heart with you & I truly hope you enjoy using them on your photos as well. You can tweak each preset to fit your specific needs and spaces, but I hope that you enjoy the cozy feel each preset gives to your photos to enjoy them for years to come. You will find the presets on my blog under “shop Liz Marie blog” in the link in my profile. I will be adding a lot more to this section very soon [ a hint at next weeks launch!] & I truly hope you enjoy everything we share with you guys there. We’ve launched this part of our blog to assist our future adoption & hopefully others adoptions as well... ok.. I’m going to go cry in a corner now because I’m equal parts excited, nervous, and overjoyed to share this with you! Ps. When you use my Lightroom presets use the #LMBpresets hashtag me to share them with me so I can share them as well! #whitecottagefarm

Fun was had in the snow today by all here on @whitecottagefarm, but some had more fun than others. This girl couldn’t get enough of it!!! This is the look we get if we ask her to stop playing to take a photo... I didn’t know dogs could give an eye roll but apparently they can 🙄🐶 Happy Friday my friends & happy weekend! Head to the blog today to see Favorite Things Friday: LizMarieBlog.Com - link in my profile.

We woke up to the first snowfall of the season here on @whitecottagefarm!!! Jose actually woke me up at 4am to tell me it was snowing and I almost couldn’t go back to sleep from excitement. What a beautiful ending to such a hard week here. Coffee was a little more cozy this morning on my snowy walk around the farm. Happy Friday my friends!!! What’s the weather like by you today?! #whitecottagefarm

Y’all. Thank you for the love today on my last post about our Potter passing away. I know I say it often, but I’m thankful. Every time I post a photo or a story it’s like I’m welcoming you guys into our home and our lives for a brief moment & you happen to be the best guests ever & that’s what makes me want to keep on sharing. Thank you for taking the time to pray, leave a comment, put a heart on the photo, & just to follow us here. This week is proof that it’s not always rainbows & butterflies here on the farm... it’s real, raw, & most of all it’s honest. We will always try to make beautiful moments out of even the hardest & that my friends is how we make it through the hard days. Yesterday when I came in from finding Potter lifeless I sat here and cried & the dogs were all being so sweet. I loved on them so hard & they licked my tears... it was just what I needed. I shared this lovely place I cried in yesterday on the blog today: LizMarieBlog.Com - link in my profile. Head on over to see the space more & to hear why it looks like this. Hugs to you all! #whitecottagefarm#cozywhitecottage

It’s a sad week on our farm. Our precious little Potter went to heaven after fighting a bad sickness for many weeks. He had many doctor visits, the best of the best food his last days, & he even slept inside our farmhouse so we could make him as comfortable as can be. He was born really small & still was the toughest & grumpiest sheep we had. To say he will be missed would be an understatement. Many tears when I had to break the news to his momma, but I got to tell her that we both have babies in heaven... big loss for @whitecottagefarm. I picture him being a counting sheep now.. if you count sheep to fall asleep at night, he will be the little brown one with a grumpy face. This farm life isn’t always easy, but take it from someone who kisses her sheep goodnight... it’s worth it. #whitecottagefarm thankful @annavanderbergphoto snapped this photo a few days ago to remember him. ❤️🍂🍁

300,000 people here on @lizmariegalvan?! My mind is blown. Only 4% see my posts, but that doesn’t matter in the big picture. The fact that 300,000+ people saw some type of inspiration or something that made you want to follow our journey is such an honor and so humbling. Whether it’s our farm journey, our infertility journey, our adoption journey, our fixer upper journey, our store journey, but whatever journey you are here to see... I’m SO THANKFUL you are here. You encourage me to keep sharing my heart & my passions & for that I will always be grateful for. One thing I want to do more here is share less of the styles & more of the little simple moments because those are the important ones. The moments kicking leaves outside on a walk... those are the ones that bring us peace. The styled moments are motivating, but so are those little moments... I hope you enjoy all the moments I share here. Thank you for following me here, our store @thefoundcottage, & our farm @whitecottagefarm... THANK YOU!!! That being said.... who do you love following here on Instagram? TAG THEM ALL BELOW so that we can show them some love today!! #whitecottagefarm 🍁🍂
