C&B is a faith and lifestyle blog created to help encourage you to live with purpose and love with intention. We seek to accomplish this through posts sharing everything from developing a healthy work-life balance (purposeful living), tips for setting aside time for family when you have a busy schedule (building intentional relationships), to fashion finds on a budget (purposeful purchases). Whatever that is shared on this space is shared for the purpose of helping you towards a more intentional lifestyle.
It started mainly as an inside joke because of a sign we saw in passing while traveling through the city one day during the earlier years of our relationship that was misspelled as “chichen.” Ensue many belly-laughs and cheesy jokes later, I titled this blog – primarily inspired about the simple joy it brought us to see that sign that day. To this day, I’m not sure why we found it so hilarious, but we did and it stuck for quite a few years.
When deciding to title this blog, what turned out as a random inside joke, turned into an expression of something deeper. The joy that I get from Christ, even when the pain feels deep and the stress seems high enough to drown in it, is imperishable. Even though life is challenging and sometimes we experience really hard, difficult things that we cannot often put into words or form into a prayer, because He lives, there’s hope, there’s peace, there’s unexplainable joy that surpasses all understanding.
Similar to how previously even the mention of it made us chuckle and smile, I hope to bring the same sort of joy to you through this blog as I help provide you with ways to live and love with purpose. This blog highlights not only the deliciously joyful moments in life, adventurous trips, life-hacks, how to’s, DIY ideas, party planning, marriage and more, but also the not-so-glamorous aspects of life – self-care when going through difficult times, body image, enduring when life gets unbearable, and the hope we have through all.
We believe that you can shop preppy and find home decor items while on a budget.
We believe that fashion isn’t about how much you paid or the name of the brand, but about how you style it and how it makes you feel.
We believe in enjoying the little moments and finding ways to connect with loved ones.
We believe in self-care and a healthy work-life balance.
We believe that you can love your body where it is right now, despite what societal norms try to tell us.
We believe there is a great hope and reason to keep going.
Ultimately, we believe and created this space to inspire you to love intentionally and live with purpose.
