Just the Beginning.
Welcome to a new beginning for me. One that God put in my heart a few years ago and one that was brought to fullness after becoming a mama. Thank you for reading and popping your head into little pieces of my life. I just wanted to introduce myself and my teeny family! For starters, I'm Becca! I live in Atlanta with my dreamy husband of 4 years and my chunky, spunky baby girl. My husband is a music mastermind and drummer. I'm a mama and a makeup artist. June Oliver is a silly fireball who currently keeps us on our toes!
June meaning young • Oliver meaning an olive branch. Showing peace, fruitfulness, beauty, dignity.
On January 2, 2016 I woke up from a dream. It was her. June. My husband Paul was calling her name... It was just us in that flat green field. When he called her name, she glanced at me with those big brown eyes and a soft giddy smile. She turned to him. Wind blowing her little brown pony tail, she ran into his arms and he swung her around and around. That's all I remembered when my eyes opened seconds later. "There's no way I'm pregnant, I just know it's not happening again this month." But God is faithful. Hours later, I saw that blue line pop up before I could even take a breath. Could it really be her? The one I just woke up dreaming about? God comes even when we think our dreams are too big. They never are too big for Him. In fact, did you know He puts those dreams in your heart and loves to give to His children? When our hearts are aching and waiting, He is working and weaving all things together for our good and His glory.
Months after that, we opened that tiny envelope at breakfast. "ITS A GIRL." I sobbed the rest of breakfast. Okay I sobbed the rest of my life as I knew it. A little girl whose name would be June. It wasn't until a few weeks before she was born that her middle name was confirmed in my heart. "For I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God. I will trust in His unfailing love forever and ever." Oh, to see her flourish. The best part is, she and I get to flourish together. I couldn't have been prepared for the chamber grown in my heart the day she was born.
I've never known there was such community with mamas who are so FOR each other until having June. Most of which I've never even met. Which is what brought me here. What would it look like if we rallied for each other and empowered one another in our journeys? Want to flourish together? I do!
