So here's the thing. I've seen a little bit of a Mother's Day guilt trip floating around the internet recently. You know the trolls that say you cannot possibly be a good mom if you are seeking gifts for Mother's Day other than the hand-crafted macaroni and glue kind?! I just want to go out on a . . .
So many thoughts are running through my head as I begin the last year in my twenties. Although it does not feel as monumental as I always thought it would, (30 used to be OLD in my mind, ha!) there are still some things that I want to continually remind myself of as I prepare to enter my . . .
Mandy's weekly planning posts over at Biblical Homemaking have always been inspiring to me, so this week I decided to write my own! I think what I am so drawn to is the fact that she lists attainable or realistic goals. I am a list maker by nature, but often tend to put EVERYTHING on the list. I end . . .
Hey you! Goodness, I am way past due for a Life Actually post where I share life actually. It's not all Pinterest perfect or Instagram worthy photos over here in the day to day. We've got a lot more mess and bedhead going on. Ha! So, if you'd like to see what we've been up to for the past few m . . .
If your home is anything like mine, morning routines set the tone for the rest of the day. My smallest little currently needs about an hour of full-on snuggle time in the mornings to wake up and get going. At the same time, I need to do a few of the things on the list below to feel like I'm ready to . . .
I've never thought to write a monthly goals post, but loved this idea from The Confused Millennial! I'm thinking it will be really nice to look back at the end of the month and see what I have accomplished and what I need to be more intentional about. I broke down my goals into three . . .
Mark had an unexpected afternoon off on Monday, so we took the boys to a local farmer's market. There was so much to capture the boys attention and I was able to capture so many sweet smiles with my camera. Mark and I realized that it has been a REALLY long time since we did anything just for fun as . . .
Today, Mark and I celebrate 6 years of marriage. 7 moves, 6 pregnancies, 4 losses, 2 babes that don't sleep, and a lot of growing pains later, we are still going. Here in the trenches of parenting littles, work, and school, this marriage thing is not easy. It can be difficult to remember why we love . . .
Oh my goodness! It has been almost two months since I have written a Life Lately update! Eeeekk!! So needless to say, I am about to overload you with pics of bed-headed, pajama clad boys (who has time to style their hair and put clothes on when there are all the things to do?!) doing everyday . . .
WE MOVED!!! Let me back track a bit, though. Some crazy lady (I'm not naming any names) decided it would be a good idea to paint a house after closing and before moving in, while still having more packing to do than she realized. Sooo we pulled our first all-nighter since laboring for Greyson. No . . .
