About Us


I'm Sarah Lynne, a dreamer. I share in the joys of each day as a homemaker. I believe in things unseen and I cling to a hope that the best is yet to come. I come from a military family. Grew up in Germany. Moved stateside when I was 15 and met a guy in high school named DrewB. Married since 2004 to DrewB, a dude with serious handyman skills. Together we enjoy entertaining in our home, creating DIY projects and hunting for thrifty finds for our ever-changing home.  We love Jesus and we are passionate about adoptionWe have 4 precious children through adoption - one daughter, Juliona, and three sons, Patrell, Miles and Shepherd.
This blog details pieces from our everyday life.

Tagline explanation: 
"It's the Lynne things in life" is a play on "it's the little things in life" (obviously). 
"Lynne" is our last name and is pronounced Linn-ey (less obvious).

Disclaimer
I realize that the overwhelming majority of this blog is about superficial, lesser important things in life (thrifting sprees, decorating our home, painting furniture, etc.) The main reason I hesitated to even start a blog – I didn’t want it to become a venue for insignificance. I am VERY extremely, overly exceedingly, abundantly, and immensely blessed and I strive (and struggle) to balance sharing in these wonderful blessings without finding much value in any of the various blessings. My prayer is that you find that most important thing in life – knowing the Lord from whom all these great blessings flow.


1 Peter 1:3-9
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

Ecclesiastes 5:18-20
This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot. Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil—this is a gift of God. They seldom reflect on the days of their life, because God keeps them occupied with gladness of heart.
