  • Stephanie Tait - I love love love my copy of this journal. Time to get some for friends as gifts now I think.

  • L. Heggie - Ah! Karen – this makes me so excited! Thank you, sweet friend, for pouring your heart into a product created in order to help us pour out our concessions to the Lord. I am so grateful for you! XO

  • Amy Wadlington - Oh my gosh! Love this! I am a journal junkie and this might be the best I’ve seen.

  • Ashley Kester - Love this! I can’t wait to order one!! 😀

  • Christina Nichole Dizon - LOVE THIS GIRL!!!! <3

  • Casey Hollins-Sprouse - I love journals so much 🙂 This is great!

  • Angie Ochoa - I NEED this!!! I need something tangible that will help me to really get back to the basics with my walk with God. This is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

  • Rebekah Wallace - This journal is the perfect balance between keeping track of tasks while not being a slave to them. I love the spiral format and that I can set it on the kitchen counter or on the desk beside me to scribble my thoughts as they come.

  • Caci Hyman - Love this and the design!

  • LaRae Humes - I love the intentionality (not a real word) of these journals! They are gorgeous and the fact that the profit is going toward your adoption is a beautiful testimony!

  • Alexandra Cintron - These are absolutely gorgeous journals. I love them. P.s. pick me! 🙂

  • Emily Ku - What a great idea! I have a separate agenda and journal and never thought about combining them.

  • Katie Ingraham - I am so excited for you! These seem perfect for busy mamas to make sure we stop and really take in the moments. I can’t wait to get my hands on one:)

  • Lauren Lawrence - I love this idea! A journal AND planner that isn’t rigid or super scheduled but something that helps me keep on task as well as keep my focus on where it should be- The Lord and the people He has placed in my life. I could really use this as a mom of a 2 year old and a 3 month old.

  • Naomi Gantner - Wooow!!! Love it!!! 🙂 you did a great job. 🙂

  • Maren Miller - These look amazing! I have been searching for something exactly like this and have never found it… until now! Woop!

  • Lindsey Yeagley - Oh my gosh I NEED this!!! This is so great! Just the right amount of girly too 🙂

  • Larissa Clark - Wow! I Saw Maren Miller post and had to check it out! (Maybe she gets an extra entry?!?!?) I am loving the look of these… and more importantly, these pulled my heart strings a little. So beautiful!

  • Sally Nelson O'Donnell - Gorgeous!

  • Melissa Pepin - I adore this journal. Its silly to say that a little book can change your perspective but Ive said it over and over again about this journal..it has LITERALLY been a deep breath of fresh air, intentional heart, and perspective in my journalling routine. I kinda want to order a bunch of these just in case one day they don’t exist so I can still make sure its available for me to use! hehehe

  • Hannah Schonewill - I love the organization of this that allows daily thoughts and prayers to be intertwined with the daily schedule!

  • Tami Minso Troy Henion - I love seeing how a beautiful heart transpires just as beautifully to pen and ink. I’ve had my eye on this gorgeous planner since the new year. Just lovely!

  • Courtney Wise McComb - This is perfect and beautiful!! Love this simple planner 🙂

  • Sabrina Fields - Oh Karen, I love these journals!! I’m only partially through the one that I have but I already know I want to get another one before this one is totally full. It’s so pretty and so practical for what I need and how my brain works! Thank you so much for these!!

  • Jackie Bailey - Oh my goodness. Yes! I need this in the worst way!!

  • Amanda McIntosh - This looks awesome! I would really like to try one. 🙂

  • Anne Champion - Oh I love the design and simplicity of this journal! Devotions will look great in this. I’m thankful you’re doing this giveaway. I also pinned on Pinterest.

One of the things I’ve loved most this year is the addition of a bowl of scrabble letters in a milk glass candy dish on the hutch in our kitchen.  Every few days I pass by it and find something else to read.  The children change it… I change it.. this morning I found this […]

  • Shannon McFive McConnell - Love this…like, A LOT!

I thought it would be fun to do a 10 random facts day so you can get to know me a little better!  So here I go… 1.  I was raised on 100 acres in the woods surrounded by only brothers and families with all boys. So obviously, I learned archery before katniss and know […]

Last week I had the absolute privilege of experiencing the other side of the lens.  And honestly, I am OVERJOYED that I faced that teensy fear and jumped in. I’ve always been around photography… ALWAYS.  I remember dreading posing for pictures when my grandmother insisted on just. one. more…..  But obviously that dread, turned to […]

Somewhere way deep down, I’ve always felt just slightly misplaced.  Growing up on 100 acres in the backwoods of Oregon surrounded by boys, logging, and killing our own food there was always a part of me that just didn’t “fit” with my surroundings.  My Hudson jeans stood out like a sore thumb in the world […]

  • Top 10 South Carolina Wedding Venues | Plantations | Karen Stott … | Wedding Venues, Locations And Spots - […] here to see the original: Top 10 South Carolina Wedding Venues | Plantations | Karen Stott … ← Palo Alto Wedding Venue: Creekside […]

  • Cassandra Rothman - Very nice locations! Looks historical. 🙂 I think this is also good for a big wedding. -http://www.culverevents.com/

  • McConnell Hall - This is a truly great list- may I add a plantation house between Greenville and Clemson in South Carolina – McConnell Hall Plantation. Come visit! I’ll show you around! 🙂

  • Jessica Alexander Brown - Don!t forget one of the most historic towns in South Carolina….well besides Charleston of course! Abbeville, SC! The Discussions the began and ended the Civil War were held here. We have two gorgeous plantations that offer wedding services the Burt-Stark Mansion and the Hill House. We also have a beautiful old stable called the Livery Stables to host weddings! Come check us out!

  • Courtney Spence - The Magnolia Manor in Westminster, SC is also nice 🙂

  • Duncan Estate - Thank you for including the Duncan Estate as a Top Plantation Wedding Venue in South Carolina! We’re honored to be listed alongside such beautiful historic homes, and it’s such a blessing to serve as the backdrop for couples beginning their married lives together <3.

  • Julie Bunton Brackett - Rose Hill Estate in Aiken is gorgeous, too! http://www.rosehillestate.com/

  • Jamie Snow - Boone Hall was also the “summer house” in The Notebook 🙂

  • Jay Walter - Yes, these fine homes are indeed so majestic and beautiful it nearly erases their colorful history of malevolence, greed, murder, rape, enslavement, terrorism and genocide. Equivalent to nazi gas chambers and death camps they still provide a sense of power and prestige that built America. Architecture plays a major part, but the primary reason is that white people feel at home, a sense of peace with a symbol that fueled their wealth, power, land ownership and status to this very day.

  • Cynthia Lemmons Cantrell - Augusta Manor is no longer available. It has been closed down.

  • Gail Hanson - Another great plantation is in Pendleton, SC, and is available for functions upon reservation. Woodburn or the Woodburn Plantation is an antebellum house near Pendleton in Anderson County, South Carolina. It is at 130 History Lane just off of U.S. 76. It was built as a summer home by Charles Cotesworth Pinckney. They have a nice website and do lots of weddings…

One of my favorite Wedding Trends as of lately is the use of Non Floral “Florals” I am LOVING seeing paper and felt flowers adorning the Groomsmen’s lapels! It seems like such a small thing, but unique details like this really change the overall feel and mood of your wedding.  They are also incredible conversation […]
