  1. Eep! I am just so excited for Fresh Apparel, Olivia! I can't believe how close you are to launching and I can't wait until you actually do! Hope things will start to calm down a little for you, but it sounds like you are having a great time! (That song sounds really interesting too...) Your donut socks sound awesome, and so does everything else that is going on for you! Hope to see Fresh Apparel soon ;)

  4. so cool Olivia! Glad you are doing well. I was starting to get worried! thank you for filling us in! I have been praying for you.
    I understand about life being busy. we have been busy with our family business. my mom paints and refinishes antique and vintage furniture (we all help to some degree) and I make Ruffled Messenger Bags. I am kind of at a point of Trusting God with sales. I have a really LARGE inventory and I haven't sold any in the last couple of sales. The first sales of the season. Kind of bummed but waiting on God to guide that. We also had a really bad stomach bug go through our family. I was out for 5 days! totally NOT fun!
    You will post on your blog when you launch your kick start it thing right??? I don't want to miss it! Having a small (and I mean small) business, I really appreciate entrepreneurs. Especially girls my age who love the Lord. Congratulate your sister Emma for me! Tell her Great Job!
    Love you! You have my prayers!
    Blessings,
    Victoria

  5. Wow Olivia! Seems like you have a lot going on! I love your brothers name for the pig! haha Very original! My nephews (8-1) named their One white roster Harold....don't know where it came from, but it did! haha I'm excited about Fresh Apparel! That sounds fun and I know you are going to have good things there! Hope God blesses you with your business!
    God bless!

    Love Always,

  7. Hi!! I just love your blog Olivia not to mention all your outfit ideas and posts!! I'm super excited about your Fresh Apparel Denim company! Will you have a website with it when it starts? I sure hope so! I have already ordered scarves from your Etsy boutique and absolutely love them! Hope your day is going splendidly! God Bless you on your new endeavor!
    PS Love your new shoes!!

  8. You crack me up!!! Some day I hope I get to meet you! Praying for you and your business. I really hope that goes well for you. I had to laugh about the pigs!!!!!! That is a very funny name but trust brothers to come up with such a name!!! =)

  9. So great to get an update from you! I like the new vlog approach to it. I'm so psyched about Fresh Apparel and I'll keep it in my prayers!

  10. Looking forward to seeing FA in action...don't sweat it, it'll happen when it's meant to.

    Just a thought, and I apologise if it's too personal, but wear cotton tights (pantyhose) under your skirt. I am doing that this New Zealand winter, and a below-knee skirt over cotton tights with kneehigh boots means I am warm enough to fall asleep on the bus ( or would be if I let myself doze off!). And your feet and ankles stay drier in the rain than legs in trousers and socks and ankle boots.

  11. It's so much fun to see you talking on video, because I've never seen you and don't know how you talk or what facial expressions you use while explaining something. ;) Loved your vlog! Hope you'll do another one sometime. Thanks for posting!!! :)

  12. You are so right . . . the other day was soooo hot I thought I was going to melt and then it snapped over to freezing cold yesterday. I wish the weather could make up it's mind!!!

  13. I know, the weather has been CRAZY lately. i wish it would just make up it's mind!

  14. Hi Olivia,
    It was so great to hear from you... not just a post but really hear from you! :) I'm so excited for you and all of the exciting things that have been happening in your life. I'm looking forward for Fresh Apparel to come out... It sounds just awesome.
    Have a wonderful day!
    Blessings...

  15. I'm so excited for you! It sounds like you're in a fun, but interesting season of life right now. :)
    I know you probably hear this a lot but I just wanna say that you seem like the type of person I would enjoy hanging out with. It's really great to see that you are same person on the blog that you are "in real life". Unfortunately genuine people are becoming more and more rare. Anyway, keep up the good work and I can't wait to hear more about your clothing line!

    Many blessings,
    Kelly

  23. Was looking around on the cool new blog set up and saw an ad for "Alone Yet Not Alone: Their Faith Became Their Freedom". Are they sponsors or are you publicizing(spelled right?) that book. If you have read the book, there's a movie coming out. Here's a trailer for all to see:

    I would like to ask people to pray for a family we know. Their eighteen year old son is getting married when he has no steady job or house. He is not mature enough to handle a wife, and on top of that he is forsaking the wise counsel of the pastor, elders, and his parents. The wedding is tomorrow. The son's grandmother and grandfather were on their way to the wedding when they were hit on the interstate at three AM by a driver going the wrong way. The grandmother died. Please pray for the family and for the son that he would see that this wedding is not God's will.

  35. Olivia, I just "walked in" to look around and check for updates, and I just love the new design! It's so "fresh" and beautiful :)

    Really looking forward to the launch of Fresh Apparel!

  37. I really like your new blog design. Your video was also really cool. Thanks for updating us on your latest doings! :) I've been really busy myself lately. I am about to graduate with my AA (woo hoo!) and I'm also a podcaster. I really appreciate your "fresh" take on dressing modestly.

  38. Hey, Olivia, I'm a new reader. When I come upon new Christian blogs, I like to check them out. Would you mind answering these questions?
    1) Are comment forms clean of foul or crude language?
    2) Are posts clean of the above?
    3) Do you monitor the comments?

    I feel like I put people on the spot when I comment like this, but I always want to know what kind of blog I'm reading. Thank you so much! :D

  39. Congratulations Olivia on Fresh Apparel. You are an inspiration!
    Quick question: I am hoping to get my ears pierced, and was wondering where y'all had yours done? I know it's kinda random, but I was hoping that one of you could help me. Thanks.

    1. I had mine pierced at Claire's. I don't know about others, but it went well and the workers were really nice.

    2. Tina Jean,
      Olivia's sista here. :) We all had our ears pierced at Claire's. Our littlest sister just went there a few months ago to get her's pierced. :) Hope this helps!

    3. Thanks SO much ladies. That helps bunches. :) I think there is a Claires somewhere around here...
      Yay! I'm super excited/nervous. *breathe-just-breathe* hehe.

    4. Actually, we took their little sister to Merle Norman because they had stainless steel studs. If you don't have a problem with reacting to metals then Claire's will be a good option for you. Enjoy your new pierced ears!

    5. Oh thank you, I don't think I have a reaction to metals, but that is good to know.
      Also I wanted you to know what an awesome job you are doing at raising your family. Your girls are so beautiful inside and out. I've really enjoyed getting to know your family through Olivia's blog. God bless y'all!

    6. Thank you, Tina Jean, for your encouragement. I think my girls are really neat :-) and I am blessed in watching them live their lives. God has been good to us.
