A Merger & A Visit From the Northwest

Hello everyone! This is Aimee Grover with my first post on Keeping Up With The Grovers. I've been formerly known for my crafty blog Homespun Forte but have recently joined forces with the hubs :) Because we shoot together & do just about everything...well...together we decided it was time to combine! Be sure to subscribe to see our latest photo shoots & homespun posts by me! All of the same good stuff on one blog! So with no further ado I bring to you my first personal post about someone I love SO much...my mama. Isn't she the prettiest? We took this photo when we visited my parents in the Seattle area earlier this summer.

My mom came down to Orange County for a visit this week & brought us some house warming gifts. I absolutely love them! They are so fresh and summery & go perfectly with our home decor - isn't it amazing how mom's can do that?

While she was here in Newport Beach, we went bike riding over to Balboa Island, visited Kean coffee, went shopping at fun little boutiques & went to night church at Rock Harbor. We had a guest speaker, Darren McWatters who taught on "God is Holy" and it was revolutionary! I have been thinking about it all week. The next morning I woke up to find my mom doing her daily devotions and writing out the whole message my memory. It has been such an encouragement in life to see how truly devoted to the Lord my mom has been throughout her life. She wakes up in the wee hours of the morning to spend time with God first. I am so grateful for her & the faithful example she has been to me!
