Every once in a while, we need a little picker-upper to get through the day. I am grateful that last week, I found it at a pretty unlikely place, a bakery. Not just any bakery, it's Magnolia Flour! If you're a fan of the hit TV show Fixer Upper like me, you would have this place on your bucket list for sure.
Every corner of this place is pinterestable and instagrammable, owners Chip & Joanna must really know their market very well.

I had been planning to come here for a while, but the Texas heat and the 1-hour-and-40-minute drive was holding me back. Last week however, I spontaneously decided to go on a mini roadtrip with J and visit it.
I am just so inspired by their story. We might look at the glitz and the glam that surround them today, but we don't know the struggles that they had to go through in order to get where they are now.
They have been doing what they're doing since 2003, but they didn't get their reality show until 2014. That means there was an 11-year gap there, where they were building their marriage, family, and business together while no one was watching. They have kept that genuine love and work ethic throughout the years, so when the spotlight is on them, they stay true to what they believe in and uphold.
I looked at everything they have built and thought to myself, "I can do this. If they can, I can. Mr.Man and I can." Seriously, I think we all can if we're committed to our journey that is set for the both of us and not worry about others.
We can't do it ourselves though, we need to surrender it all to God. Because what good is an empire or a palace if God isn't in it?
We tried the bacon and cheese biscuit + lemon lavender cupcakes and went home with happy bellies. Sweating though, because it was super hot that day.
Next time, let's wait for the weather to get cooler before we do this, J ;)
