Creating A Vision Board

Logo-H

With the new year just beginning, what better time to start envisioning all that is possible in your own life? Take the time for yourself to engage with your visions, dreams, and intentions by creating a Vision Board.

Our Vision Board Party Theme is based on Heather Stillufsen’s Rose Hill Designs as she inspires people daily through art and words … one drawing at a time!

Make a Plan! Have a Vision and go for it! 💕🔮

What is a Vision Board? 💕🔮

A Vision Board tells a story. It is often called Dream Board or Treasure Map because it graphically illustrates your hopes and dreams; it is a collage of words and pictures that speak to your heart and capture emotions. Think “this is a picture of what makes me happy!” The world is your canvas. Paint it your way!!

Types of Vision Boards! 💕🔮

A Vision Board can include various realms of your life in general such as wealth, health, career, romance, relationships, travel, education, adventure, faith, family, fun, etc.

Or, it may represent your vision for one particular area of your life such as your career to focus on a promotion.

A specific event could be the subject of inspiration such as your wedding day with emphasis on how you want to feel on the big day or touch on the signature details of your special event such as a photo of the venue, the invitation, wedding dress designs, and other personalized aspects. 💖

Another option might be to attempt different resolutions each month and select graphics that represent the different goals.

And just maybe, it is a collage of pictures that bring you joy such as cute photos of your kids or puppies that make you smile! 😊🐶

Reflection! 💕🔮

Take a moment to reflect on what has happened in your life in the past year.

What did you accomplish?
What did you try?
What did you do that made you proud this year?

Vision Party at Tirzah - Step2 - Reflection

Taking account of your successes will help you understand what you need to build on. Think about the direction that you want to take your life next.

Most importantly, take time to reflect and listen for the good Lord to guide you towards the desires He placed in your heart, according to His purposes, and let Him fulfill them for you one step at a time.

“We do not learn from experience … we learn from reflecting on experience.”
John Dewey

Prayer! 💕🔮

The 6 P’s of a Vision Board … Prayer, Purpose, Plan, Prioritization, Possibility, and Probability!

As you start to Plan, begin with Prayer and Purpose, Pinpoint your Priorities, and then open your mind to Possibility and Probability.

Vision Board Party at Tirzah - Step3 - Pray1 All that can be

What Does Your Heart Desire?! 💕🔮

Make a list of your wishes, hopes, and dreams. What does your heart desire? Clarify your vision. Include big goals (rescue a dog, clear the clutter, enhance culinary repertoire, travel to a new destination), little wish list (purchase an iRobot vacuum), intentions (spend quality time with family), things you are grateful for (family, home), and possibly select a word for the year (sparkle, shine, delight).

Consider the different elements of your life such as wealth, health, career, romance, relationships, travel, education, fun, etc. It does not matter if you have not figured out exactly how you will achieve your goal. The beauty of the Vision Board is about acknowledging your dreams (realistic or not). The simple act of writing down your goals makes you much more likely to accomplish them.

“As Dream written down with a date becomes a Goal. A Goal broken down into steps becomes a Plan. A Plan backed by Action becomes Reality.”

Serendipity! 💕🔮

You will be amazed at how things seem to just appear serendipitously once you set the intention for what you want and how you want to feel. The boards are fun to create, and they can serve as an invaluable tool to motivate and inspire you towards concrete daily action in pursuit of your passion.

“A girl with a passion is unstoppable!”

Word of the Year! 💕🌟

For your Vision Board, you may want to consider selecting a Word of the Year. It can be an inspirational word or phrase that brings clarity in guiding your daily actions. Generally, it is a positive, motivational, or action word depending on your goals. The word can be a beacon or anchor in your decision-making process.

Maybe you might choose the word “DELIGHT” to remember to take time to enjoy the little things that make you smile. 😊

For Tirzah, we have chosen the word “SHINE” for our Word of the Year to focus on. This word brings back fond memories at church singing “This little Light of Mine, I’m going to let it Shine!” The song not only brings back cherished memories, but the meaning of the lyrics is significant as well. As we pondered the word, it also represents phrases such as “Shine Kindness,” “Rise and Shine,” “Shine Bright,” and “Choose to Shine.”

Here is a sample of motivational words to start brainstorming for a word that might provide inspiration as you embark on your journey.

Word of the Year - Tirzah - Resolutions

Words of Inspiration! 💕🔮

Words and thoughts are the seeds of action.

Throughout history, words have shaped the course of destiny! Franklin Roosevelt’s “a date which will live in infamy” in his address to the nation, Winston Churchill’s famous words “finest hour,” John F. Kennedy’s “Man on the Moon” speech, and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I have a dream” are inspirational.

Whether it is inspiring a nation or believing in your dreams, words can change the world!

Is there a word or phrase that inspires you? Consider including words of wisdom in your Vision Board for encouragement.

Vision Board Party at Tirzah - Words of Inspiration

Love … We all want love! 💕🔮

Consider including a photo of you in the center of your Vision Board and surrounding yourself with your inspiring images, words, and things you love.

Love yourself first. Spread love. Do more of what you love. Love and kindness can go a long way!

Vision Board Party at Tirzah - Love

Take Time To Dream! 💕🔮

Do you know that everything starts with a dream? Do you ever just sit and think… dream… hope…?

In our busy lives we must not forget to sit and dream… close you eyes and go to places you may only visit in your mind… dream of the business you want to start… dream of a home you want to have… dream of the relationships you want in your life… dream about your goals, the marathon you want to finish, the college you want to go to… the places you want to visit and live… dream about sunny beaches or snowy mountains… just remember to sit and dream!

Vision Board Party at Tirzah - Step - Sit and Dream

Vision In Your Heart! 💕🔮

What would you do if you knew you would not fail? 💕

If God has placed the Vision in your heart, He will provide you with whatever you need to see it through.

Now, go out there and do it!!

Vision Board party at Tirzah - Step - Follow Your Dreams

Gratefulness! 💕🔮

Appreciate all that you are and all that you have. When you love what you have, you have every little thing you need!

Consider including gratitude for what you already have in your Vision Board such as pictures of you doing something you love, places you have been, special little moments in life, or people that mean a lot to you. Being thankful for what you have opens you up to receiving even more.

Vision Board Party at Tirzah - Step - Gratefulness

What Calls To Your Heart? 💕📷

Your Vision Board must come from the heart. Sometimes our desires are very clear, and sometimes, they are unknown. Most of us have phones with digital cameras. This week, focus on the positive and take photos of the things that make you happy or inspire you.😊

A you focus on what it is that makes YOU happy, do not allow thoughts of possibility and impossibility come to mind; sometimes, you will see themes emerge. When you focus on the things that you really want in life, they will come to the forefront of your conscious mind. Interestingly, you will then notice the opportunities that come your way and choose them.

The limited real estate of the Vision Board forces yet empowers you to focus in on your most treasured desires. Circumstances often pull us in different directions, but a Vision Board can help you stay focused.

Vision Board Party at Tirzah - Step13 - Photography - Focus on the Positive

Discern Your Intentions! 💕🔮

How would you fill in the blanks?  My dream is _________. This is important to me because _________. As you fill in the blanks, your response should feel charming to you and speak to your heart and not feel like work.

Consider the following questions to start brainstorming:

💜 What are 5 things in life that you enjoy doing? For example, painting, singing, spending time with family, playing with your pets, planting a garden, etc.

💜 What is a topic that you are an expert in? Is it something that you can help others in?

💜 What is a thought that you cannot stop thinking about day after day?

💜 What do you want, need, value, and striving for?

💜 What brings you joy?

💜 What activities do you want to learn how to do?

💜 Where would you like to travel one day?

💜 What are your relationship goals?

💜 What are your career goals?

💜 What are you saving for? It is easier to save when you know your $10 is going to your dream.

💜 How do you want to be remembered by others? What type of legacy or footprint do you want to leave?

💜 How do you want to feel when those things are your reality?

💜 How can you contribute to the greater good?

💜 What is an organization or cause you have always wanted to support?

💜 How can you help make the world a better place?

💜 What is on your bucket list?

💜 What do you want to do beyond making money?

💜 What does success look like to you?

As you are creating your Vision Board and Discerning Your Intentions, the process can offer inspiration and bring clarity to your desires and passions, gently guiding you towards a future that makes your heart happy!

Create a Vision Board at Tirzah - Step14 - Intentions

Direction Of Your Dreams! 💕🔮

There comes a time when SOMEDAY becomes NOW! What is one thing you can do today that will move you in the direction of your dreams? Invest in yourself, seek new experiences, go for a walk, read a book, take the trip, mend a relationship, shine kindness … the seeds you are planting today will blossom in the future! 🌸

“What we plant is what we harvest.”

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!” ~ Henry David Thoreau

“Learn from the past, live in the present, and plan for the future.” ~ Audrey Farrell

“Do something today that your future self will thank you for.”~ Sean Patrick Flanery

Storms! 💕

Even though you are living your dream, not every day will be filled with sunshine. As you travel on your journey, there may be storms and struggles. But, every storm runs out of rain, and the struggles will make you stronger.

Create a Vision Board at Tirzah - Step17 - Storms2

In the end, you will have a beautiful story to share about moments of inspiration, discovery, and learning. People love stories of heroes, journeys, surprises, and happy endings!

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step!” ~ Chinese Proverb

“Whatever the struggle, continue the climb. It may be only one step to the summit.” ~ Diane Westlake

“Today’s struggle is part of tomorrow’s success!”

Create a Vision Board at Tirzah - Step17 - Storms

After You Create Your Vision Board! 💕🔮

A goal in creating a Vision Board is to create a visual reminder of what you are hoping to accomplish and enjoy the journey.

Take a few minutes each morning to revisit the goals that the images and words represent on your Vision Board. Think about something you could do that day toward each goal.

Display your Vision Board in a special place where you can view it regularly in order to maintain your focus and motivation. Imagine what it will be like when your aspirations come to pass!

Your Vision Board will always be growing and evolving. As time goes on, add new images or take away old quotes that no longer seem to quite capture your journey.

Inspiration and visualization are not enough. You must take action to make it happen. Dreams can come true with hard work, passion, and determination! 💖

Now, take the first step in Faith! If you are walking with God, you will always be going in the right direction.

Tirzah Ribbon Cutting and Open House

Logo-H

It was a cold winter morning.  In fact, it was the coldest day of the year!  As I was driving to our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Tirzah, the temperature in my truck displayed 15 degrees Fahrenheit.  I was thinking that we would have to resort to Plan B and have the Ribbon Cutting inside the building; however, around 10:00 a.m., the temperature warmed up enough so that it was bearable, not comfortable, but bearable so we had the Ribbon Cutting outside.

Tirzah is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places as a contributing building in the Downtown Belton Historic District in Belton, Texas.  We are not sure when the building was built, but through our research, we found documentation supporting the building’s existence in the 1880’s.

Tirzah Ribbon Cutting Ceremony - National Register of Historic Places - Preservation Efforts

This building had been abandoned for over 20 years and had been marked as condemned by the City of Belton, Texas.  The Ribbon Cutting was held in celebration of the restoration of this grand iconic structure, and our guests will be the first to see the preservation efforts. I tend to refer to the preservation efforts of the historic building as ‘Saving Yesterday for Tomorrow!’

We had the honor of Adam Lozoya, the traveling pianist, performing beautiful prelude music before the Ribbon Cutting as guests were arriving.  The music started the event with a festive spirit.

The event was opened with a prayer by Reverend John Heckmann from St. Paul Lutheran Church, in The Grove, Texas. Pastor Heckmann also gave a blessing for Tirzah as we dedicated our business to His glory.

The prayer was followed by the Presentation of the Colors by Boy Scout Troop 118.  Cory Roberts was the Color Guard Commander.  I was so proud seeing the flags as they were walking down N. East Street with the Courthouse in the background, hearing Cory give the commands, seeing the Scouts salute the flag, and everyone saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

Dean Winkler, a General Contractor with CRW Construction was introduced, and he said a few words about their experience.  It was a daunting task to renovate this building, but this trusted crew gave our condemned building a productive life; a building that was once abandoned will now thrive for future generations to enjoy.

Our vintage venue is steeped with history.  Frederick Gillmeister owned the building in the 1880’s and used the building as a restaurant.  Around 1889, Mr. Gillmeister sold the building to William Froderman.  Interestingly, both families, were born in Germany and found themselves living in Belton, Texas.  Mr. Froderman used the building for a bakery and boarding house.  Over the years, they made numerous wedding cakes.  He also used the building as a venue for weddings and banquets.

The Gillmeister Family

Both families, the Gillmeister’s and the Froderman’s, ran the business downstairs, and they lived upstairs.   Fred and Julia Gillmeister lived in this building along with their only child, Louis Gillmeister.  And the Froderman’s raised six children here.  Imagine what it would have been like to live here growing up as a child.  To give you a glimpse, Louis Gillmeister was quite athletic, and he would entertain the restaurant guests by walking up and down the staircase on his hands.

Louis was an only child; however, he went on to have six boys of his own.  His son, Leonard Gillmeister and several family members of the Gillmeister family were present with us at the Ribbon Cutting.  Leonard is 91 years old and remembers going into the building once as a little boy and seeing a display of cookies and donuts.

I feel like our families have a special connection with each other, and they even showed up early and helped us get ready for the celebration.

Interestingly in 1914, Belton’s Downtown “Historic District” was called the “Paved District.”  The Temple Daily Telegram had an article titled “Splendid Sidewalk Work” which stated “the grade of the walk is being raised and new concrete walks laid in front of the building owned by William Froderman and other surrounding buildings.”  Since this building existed numerous years before the pavement was ever added, our guests were cautioned as they enter the building to notice that they will need to step down.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony - Chalkboard Sign

Several people have asked what we are going to do with the building.  Our business is founded on Christian principles.  Our name, Tirzah, was inspired by Song of Solomon 6:4, “Thou art beautiful, oh my love, as Tirzah.”  The focus of our business revolves around Love and Romance.  We strive to transform Dreams into Cherished Memories.   Our primary repertoire encompasses the following, but we offer so much more!  We are romance travel specialists, and we assist with wedding design including traditional and destination.  Additionally, we will be carrying on the tradition of hosting memorable events in this unique, nostalgic, and intimate setting.  The very first couple under our ownership, Jake Roehl and Whitney Joeckel, will be celebrating their dream day, their wedding, in this beautiful historic venue.

As we took a few more photographs to record a little more history for this building, the City of Belton council member, Jerri Gauntt, was present for the Ribbon Cutting.  Belton’s Director of Finance, Brandon Bozon, and Temple’s Director of Planning, Brian Chandler, were also present.  The members of Belton’s City Council are Visionaries in Preservation, and they have been very supportive in our endeavor.  We were awarded the Facade Improvement Grant by the City of Belton, and in addition, the Belton City Council approved a five-year 100 percent Tax Abatement.

The Downtown Belton Merchants have been very welcoming.  A community that supports one another maximizes everyone’s chances for success.  My supportive new neighbors include Leila Valchar with My Giving Tree, Robert Potts with Cochran, Blair, and Potts, Melitza Rivera with Southern Comforts, Maria Aida Riddle with Aida’s Outlet, Michael Cox with East Street Barber Shop, Laura McWha with McWha Bookstore, David Tuma with The Belton Journal, and many more.

My family is my Circle of Strength.  We are founded on faith, joined by love, and kept by God.  I could not have made it this far without their help, guidance, encouragement, and prayers.

A friend is what the heart needs.  Friends divide our sorrow and double our joy. Our joy was definitely doubled at our Ribbon Cutting.  Many friends joined us in our celebration even with the cold temperature.

I prayed about the decision to purchase the building.  Was it the path that I should take?  The Sunday before the auction, I noticed a bulletin board at church that said, “If you are walking with God, you will always be going in the right direction.” So as we are walking by Faith, we keep taking the next step.  At the tax auction, we became the blessed owners.  We then took the step in the restoration, and we are celebrating today with the Ribbon Cutting.  My children, Cory and Candice, my greatest blessings did the honors of cutting the ribbon.  We saved the ribbon in between the two cuts, and the rose-gold scissors have been engraved with Tirzah and the date of 1/7/17.

These two pictures touch my heart. I love how Candice and I are so proudly smiling as we watch Cory make the final cut to the ribbon. This is a memory that we will always cherish.

Cory then turned the “Sorry We’re Closed” sign to “Come In, We’re Open” and said, “We’re Open!”

We thanked everyone for coming on this cold winter day and spending part of their day with us. We were excited to have them see the wonderful preservation efforts.  We asked Leonard Gillmeister to do us the honor of being the first guest to enter the building followed by the remaining Gillmeister family.

During the Open House, refreshments were served. Tidbits of history were on display with historical articles, vintage photographs, and various artifacts such as a giant baker’s mixer.

Dawn of a New Year!

Logo-H

Do you have a New Year’s Resolution?

Encouragement can come from the most unexpected places.  Have you ever watched the movie, “New Year’s Eve?” A moving moment in the movie was when the character played by Josh Duhamel makes a toast to his deceased father where he repeats the question that his dad used to ask every New Year’s Eve: “What would you do today if you knew you wouldn’t fail?”

New Years Eve Movie
New Year’s Eve Movie

When we watched the movie and heard this question, we instantly knew the answer, and it was not long after, that we purchased an abandoned, condemned building.

Tirzah Historic Building Before Restoration Venue Belton Texas
Abandoned and condemned historic building before restoration

Other inspirational New Year quotes from the movie are the following.

💜 “And as you all can see, the ball has stopped half-way to its perch. It’s suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the New Year, to stop, and reflect on the year that has gone by, to remember both our triumphs and our missteps, our promises made and broken, the times we opened ourselves up to great adventures … or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt, because that’s what New Year’s all about, getting another chance, a chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more, and to stop worrying about what if … and start embracing what will be, so when that ball drops at midnight, and it will drop, let’s remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other, and not just tonight but all year long.”

New Years Eve Movie - Ball Drop Times Square

💜 “Sometimes it feels like there are so many things in this world we can’t control. Earthquakes, floods, reality shows … But it’s important to remember the things that we can, like forgiveness, second chances, fresh starts … Because the one thing that turns the world from the longing place to a beautiful place … is love. Love and any of its forms. Love gives us hope … Hope for the New Year. That’s what New Year’s Eve is to me. Hope and a great party!”

New Years Eve Movie - Toast the New Year

💜 “Some people swear there’s no beauty left in the world, no magic. Then, how do you explain the entire world coming together on one night to celebrate the hope of a New Year?”

New Years Eve Movie - Ball Drop New York Times Square

As an alternative to resolutions, selecting an inspirational word or phrase of the year can bring clarity in guiding your daily actions. Generally, it is a positive, motivational, or action word depending on your goals.  The word can be a beacon or anchor in your decision-making process.

We have chosen the word “SHINE.” This word brings back fond memories at church singing “This little Light of Mine, I’m going to let it Shine!” The song not only brings back cherished memories, but the meaning of the lyrics are significant as well. As we pondered the word, it also represents phrases such as “Shine Kindness,” “Rise and Shine,” “Shine Bright,” and “Choose to Shine.”

Here is a sample of motivational words to start brainstorming for a word that might provide inspiration as you embark on your journey in the New Year.

Word of the Year - Tirzah - Resolutions

Create your own list of words; oftentimes, there is a theme. Select your favorite from the list of characteristics, and then narrow it down to what inspires you. You could write the word on a post-it note or create a beautiful graphic for inspiration to look at as a reminder. Here is a sample of motivational phrases.

💜 Celebrate the small successes
💜 Create healthy habits
💜 Embrace change
💜 Live sparkly
💜 Open your heart
💜 Seek excellence not perfection
💜 Take a chance
💜 Trust your intuition
💜 New Year, New Start, New You

One year, I spotted a simple card at the Dollar Tree that spoke to me, uplifted my spirits, and made me smile. The card was a cute little monkey with the words “Hang In There!” I still have the card as a constant reminder when I am getting ready each morning that storms do pass, and change often comes with a blessing.

Hang In There Inspirational Phrase

From first kisses to lost loves, as the clock strikes midnight, what is your dream when you ring in the New Year? What would you do if you knew you would not fail? Celebrate love, hope, forgiveness, second chances, and fresh starts. Your journey begins with the first step. Now, go out there and do it! 

Dawn of a New Year Happy New Year Dreams Goals Resolutions

Happy New Year!! Enjoy a beautiful song “Have a Little Faith In Me” from the “New Year’s Eve” movie.

Money and Marriage

Logo-H

Are you the type of person that likes to “live for the day,” or are you the type that likes to “save for a rainy day?”

Money and Marriage

Before you get married, couples should discuss finances. It is quite romantic to say that opposites attract, but this does not hold true in the financial realm. Disparate goals on how the money should be utilized makes money a common battle ground in marriage. Financial conflicts arise in a marriage when one person wants to use the money for status and buy a fancy car each year verses someone that wants to use the money for security and save for retirement. The backdrop of competing desires makes money a major cause in divorce.

Money and Marriage

Financial disagreements with your better half causes stress in a relationship and impacts self-worth. Arguments happen when there is not enough money to pay the bills. Arguments also happen when there is sufficient money; however, the couple does not agree on how the money should be spent.

Money and Marriage

Money management is critical in a marriage if you would like to live ”happily ever after.” When you say “I do,” you are joining lives together which includes the financial component. To create a strong financial union, look at what you are both bringing to the marriage in regards to income and expenses. Obtain a credit report to confirm that there are not any surprises when you would like to apply for a mortgage loan. Consider how existing debts and future household expenses will be paid. Create a budget and track your spending each month to see how they compare. Create a joint account to cover the basic expenses, have automatic contributions go directly to a retirement plan and to a savings account, and have a predetermined amount for discretionary spending. Coming to an agreement on “yours, mine, and ours” prior to marriage will help prevent resentment.

Money and Marriage

Advice to newlyweds is to save early and save often but set aside the funds to go on an adventure! 💕

Coffee Cups of Life

Coffee Cups of Life

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. The conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain-looking, some expensive, and some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

Coffee Cups

After all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: “If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.”

Coffee My Love

“Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases, it’s just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups … and then began eyeing each other’s cups.”

Coffee Heart

“Now consider this: Life is the coffee, and the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life, and the type of cup we have does not define nor change the quality of life we live. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us.”

God Brews the Coffee

God brews the coffee, not the cups.  Enjoy your coffee! 💕

Diversity of Thought

Logo-H

Diversity recognizes individual differences, and individual differences in relation to thought, emotional, behavioral patterns reference personality. The study of personality dates back to Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, and his classification of the four human temperaments.

At the recent New York Times Travel Show, Paul Wiseman, who is the president of Trafalgar, provided insight on a DISCover program which is based upon research from Dr. William Marston. DISC is a categorization of individuals into the following personality types … Dominant, Influencer, Steady, and Compliant. These four personality types are then represented by the symbol of a bird … Eagle, Peacock, Owl, and Dove respectively. Wiseman concluded with, “Our success lies in how we interact with other human beings.”

DISC Personality Birds Relationship ImpactAs we begin to classify individuals into the four DISC personality types, we will develop an instinctive understanding on how individuals think, feel, and behave. Eagles are dominant and decisive, and they are comfortable with conflict. Peacocks are influencers, and they are inclined to ask nicely for what they need and are enamored of compliments. Owls use discerning judgment and generally like to communicate in writing. Doves love security and building personal relationships. The chart below is a summary of the personality types and behavioral characteristics.

DISC Personality Types Relationship Impact

The old adage “Birds of a feather flock together” does hold true. Although we are attracted to people who are different from us, we are most attracted to others who have a similar focus. However, the Opposites Attract theory is supported by Robert Levenson’s research on personality similarities and differences and marital satisfaction; the study results led him to conclude that “Different personalities may provide couples with complementary resources dealing with life’s challenges.”

By increasing our knowledge and understanding of individual personality types, it will improve our relationships whether they are happily-ever-after marriages or business relationships. Strength, beauty, wisdom, and charm lies in the diversity of thought! In the words of George R. R. Martin from A Game of Thrones, “Different roads sometimes lead to the same castle.” 💕

Our New Endeavor … Tirzah!

Logo-H

Tirzah 

A new business has evolved between two determined individuals, a mother and a daughter, with two aspiring dreams that intertwined to create Tirzah!

We have embarked on a quest to “Leave a Legacy of Love.”

Tirzah Bible Rings

With every aspect of the journey having the focus of Love, the business name was carefully chosen.  The name was inspired from the Bible in Song of Solomon 6:4, “Thou art beautiful, O my love, as Tirzah.”  Tirzah is a Hebrew word meaning, “She is my delight; my beloved.”

The pronunciation of our name is Tirzah (Tur-Zah') as in Oohlala!

We strive to transform Dreams into Cherished Memories.
Our repertoire encompasses:

           Romance Travel
           Wedding Design
           Floral Artistry
           Enchanting Gifts

With our expertise in the Romance Travel Industry, we design romantic escapes, memorable proposals, honeymoons, anniversary trips, vow renewals, and destination weddings.  Our wedding planning services include destination weddings as well as traditional weddings in the Central Texas area.

In our vision, we have a continuous quest of knowledge acquisition where we experience destinations first-hand.  We have just returned from the Caribbean island of Nevis for a Travel Symposium on Romance and became certified as a Nevis Romance Specialist.  We toured the beautiful island, went on numerous site inspections, and met with local vendors.  In December, we will be traveling to Cancun, Mexico for a Love Mexico Travel Conference.
