breathing in the beauty

There is so much beauty around us—this doesn’t minimize the pain and the mess of how hard it is to be human, but it brings BALANCE, hope and relief.

It’s easy for me to see the hard stuff—to feel overwhelmed, scared and frustrated—but I’m practicing taking time to notice the beauty, to breathe it in, to feel grateful for these gifts. Gifts like colorful flowers, snuggles, and time with my boys!

It’s strange how pain and peace often go together. Exhaustion makes way for deep rest. Sadness created space for joy. In my experience as a human, there’s no such thing as perfect—but there’s so much GOOD. You deserve good and beautiful things!

And friends, don’t forget to take the time to smell the flowers and notice the beauty around you. My sweet flower jewelry reminds you to do just that, like my Be You Wildflower Necklace and Birth Flower Necklace. Aren’t they gorgeous?


  1. I just read your page in Take Heart Devotional and was moved to write you. Your words hit home. My husband has Alzheimer’s and it is getting harder. I needed to hear Beauty in Brokenness. Thanks so much! Bless your family.

  2. Dear Lisa,

    I just read your story. Thank you for sharing your precious family with us. Life is so hard sometimes, and you are embracing yours with everything you have to give. Amazing and beautiful!

    I lost my 24 year old son Mark to suicide two years ago. Life itself was ripped from my heart. I go on, but haven’t found a way to live again. My heart beats for my other precious children only. I ran across your website last year and bought a single silver ring that says “marky”. I wear it every day alongside my mom’s simple white gold wedding band. She died last October. I miss both of them so much. Thank you for the beauty you create. Such a small simple piece of silver has brought me much comfort.
