Dear reader, my mind is in a quandary today. I am pensive and still, unable to motivate myself into action. I muddle over several things at once. I feel pulled in many directions and yet know not which direction I should go. I am missing several people in my life right now and am also glad to be by myself. I am a walking contradiction. This last statement makes me laugh! Oh to have all the answers, yet I know that this is an impossibility since I am not God and therefore have no hope of ever knowing all the answers. But still I listen and learn and try; everyday I try.
Though with all this now written down, I can say this; “I am blessed.” I have great friends, amazing family, and God places me in winning situations everyday. I step closer to Him and He takes more of my strife away. My stress levels are down and while I am still pensive and apprehensive about the future (my future), I fear less. I fear less. That statement holds so much power for me. I fear less, because I have a God who is bigger and stronger than I.
Last night I was encouraged and inspired by my friend Natalie. She has brought herself through so many trials; she is raising two wonderful boys, put herself through college (UGA no less), taught herself how to play the guitar, and sings in a bluegrass/ country band. I heard her play last night, saw the joy and peace on her face as she played and listened to her sing. It blessed my heart and urged me to do the same. Sing! Sing with all the gifts, dreams, and talents God has given me. I am blessed!
Oh glory to an amazing God! I AM BLESSED!

Oddly enough, I’m technically supposed to be grown up. I’m not. I’m still very young and the older I get the more I’m aware of how much I don’t know. I’ve just realized a blogging trend of mine. Miles. Every time, I put on Miles I feel like writing. I wonder if the irregular beats of his trumpets mixed in with the bass and drums get into my head and relax me long enough to just put words on pages. Its a soothing blend and it let’s my fingers release the thoughts swirling in my muddled mind.
Tonight will be a short post as I am tired and am in great need of rest. But I can confidently say that I have been blessed by a wonderfully gracious week. God is so good to me. He is drawing me near to Him in ways that I have not felt in a long time. He is sloughing off the dead skin of my life and allowing new vibrant healthy skin to grow. It is wonderfully painful. Standing alone for the first time in… ever. A nice way to make my way into my 30’s. It is not to say that I am enduring some loneliness, but those times are needed. The quiet of the room, the silence of my life, gives way to the re-acquaintance of my mind, body, and soul. It is a strange thing being alone with ones self, but a much needed phase.
Of course, I’m never alone. My friends have resurfaced in a way I don’t dare to deserve and my time with them has been awesome. I have been shown love these past few months. God has orchestrated for me a tasting of what's to come for my life. I don’t what, but I do know that it will be greater than I dare dream. He says ask and ye shall receive…so I ask. I know He will not disappoint.
Well Friends. I say Bon Nuit, Bonne Notte, and Good Night.

- Bree Shannon Tuttle
- Hello. I'm Bree Tuttle, owner of You in Mind Designs, LLC. I've been a designer for 13 years and I work with you in mind. There's much joy in discovering those treasures in your home that are, perhaps, misplaced or even in the attic. I will help you making every room a reflection of who you are personally. It's my philosophy that if you feel proud, safe, and at peace in your home, then it will affect all aspects of your life. You stand straighter, walk taller, dress better, work harder, sleep more soundly, and ultimately have a more fulfilling life. If I can help you do that, then I'll consider my job as your designer a success.
