November 2020 / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

Hi friends! Today I thought I'd share some cute winter decor items from Hobby Lobby, Amazon and Target. We set up our King of Christmas Tree and have slowly started decorating for Christmas.

a mini devotional; lean into Him (+ bonus oily blend)

in the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: 
God has made the one as well as the other 
ecclesiastes‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭

it’s hard not to look at the world and feel hopeless right now. things happening on scales both big and small can leave you crippled with fear if you go down the rabbit hole long enough. friendly reminder that on both good days and bad days, you are still taken care of by the Savior. He sees you, He hears your whispers, and He’s ready for you to cast those worries on Him.

as we approach election day, no matter the result, remember that He is there for you. He sees the uncertainty in your heart and He knows it all. As we cast our ballot, I am also casting my faith in the One who is in control. I hope you do too -- no matter the outcome.

oh, and before I forget, here's the oily blend I'll be diffusing on election night -- just in case you're feeling anxious and want to use some oils to help reduce the stress.
