Let’s Talk…New Years

339912423_4416699c99_oHow is it already the end of January?! I normally don’t make goals or New Year’s resolutions for the entire year. However, I love making goals for each month. My goals can be something as generic as, “Get more sleep,” to something as specific as, “Pray for Matt, Jamie, and the baby on the way.” A new year is fun, but a fresh set of goals each month keeps me focused and motivated.

Although I don’t make goals for the entire year, there are a lot of things happening in 2016 that I am so excited about!

stephanie-spring.com1. One of my sweetest friends is getting married this summer. I am so excited for her and her fiancé and cannot wait to be a part of it!

2231903771_5f260e460a_o2. Eric and I are booking a trip to Italy and Germany. We have talked about this for a long time and are so excited to start planning the trip! Any and all tips are welcome!

imgres3. This year I went from teaching all subjects to just math and I have absolutely LOVE it! In June, I will end my second full year of teaching and start my third year. It is crazy how much the time has flown by!

BelongTour16_Spotlight_610x3204. In September, one of my closest friends (who shares my love of Shauna Niequist) and I are going to the Belong Tour. I’m sure it will be a weekend to remember.

stephanie-spring.com5. In July, Eric and I will celebrate our one year anniversary. We have some fun little getaways planned that I cannot wait for!

6. Last but not least, this space. I love the connections I have made through blogging. I love the comments, the input, and the recommendations that everyone shares. I love this space and I am so excited to connect with more people!

2016, I already love you.

Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites 01

It’s Friday! I’m teaming with Erika, Narci, and Andrea to share our Friday Favorites!



How cute are these boot cuff socks?! They arrived in the mail this week and absolutely LOVE them! They are so cozy and comfortable!


Sooo they’re calling for almost a foot of snow tomorrow. I’m not normally a fan of the snow (at all!) but since we can sleep in, have no where to be, and can sip on hot chocolate all day long…I’m pretty sure this might count as my favorite day this week!



One of my best friends lives in Germany. Since she couldn’t watch the Bachelor with us on Monday, she FaceTimed so we could watch it together! Definitely a favorite of the week! 🙂

If You and I Were to Have Coffee: Part 2


If you and I were to have coffee…

We’d talk about the high’s and low’s of the week. The challenges. The beauties. The big things and the little ones. 

If you and I were to have coffee…

We’d obviously talk about what we would spend our money on if we won the Jackpot. 😉 

If you and I were to have coffee…

I’d tell you to head over to Instagram and enter this giveaway since it’s kind of similar to winning the Jackpot. Kind of. 😉 

If you and I were to have coffee…

I’d say how fast time flies. I have no idea where the first half of the school year went and how January is almost over!

If you and I were to have coffee…

We’d talk about how it hasn’t snowed much around here and I am not complaining one little bit about that. 🙂

If you and I were to have coffee…

I’d say how how much I absolutely love these products and can’t stop buying them for friends and family! 

If you and I were to have coffee…

We’d pour ourselves another cup and sit just a little longer. There are such amazing things surrounding us, we just need to take a moment to appreciate them.
