Why Bloggers Suck.

May 5, 2017

Happy Friday babes!  I’ve had this thought on my mind lately, inspired by a few emails and comments I’ve gotten and I just wanted to get it off my chest.  Bloggers kinda suck…. I mean just hear me out for a second.  We spend a lot of time staging these perfect little moments or outfits or hairstyles and our feeds make life look so easy.  So glamorous and fun or pretty.  Or whatever it is!  But it’s not.  And I’ve realized that the more vulnerable I get with you the more you can relate to me.  The zits, the cellulite, the same yoga pants five days in a row, the unhealthy food, the screaming kids, the arguments with friends or spouses.  All of those really REAL things make us the same.  So don’t let this outfit post fool you because what you don’t see is me changing in the van and totally flashing some dude that was driving by.  I take several outfits worth of pictures

Rise And Shine!

Riiiise and shiiiine!!! It’s only 9am, I’m goin’ on 5 hours of sleep, I’ve dealt with 4 tantrums (all from Savy), 3 dirty diapers ๐Ÿ˜ณ, 2 bowls of egg all over the floor and literally the cutest baby bed head you’ve ever seen in your life. It’s bound to be a beautiful week my friends! I just wanted to say thank you so much for your encouragement last night on instagram. You guys have no idea how much you mean to me! I’m sorry I don’t respond to all your comments, but I read every single one of them. And sometimes I even click on your profiles and stalk your beautiful feeds wishing we could be best friends in real life!

Gratitude

April 9, 2017

I was planning on writing a completely different post today… more along the lines of how exhausted I am from my busy babies and crazy big kids. How tired I am of breaking of fights, picking up toys and making food no one eats. Motherhood is sure a thankless job, isn’t it? Despite the long week, my heart is full of gratitude.
I’ve been praying for a lifeline this week. For understanding. For patience. I’ve been praying for a lot of things but have just felt a little lost. A little forgotten. Today at church I had a tender mercy and a prayer was answered. A sweet little old lady walked up to the pulpit and started her story by sharing how she had five kids in four years with the last two being twins. She talked about how hard her life was, how overwhelmed she was and it was as if she were speaking directly to me. She then teared up and read this scripture…
