Hey babes!! Oh man, I’m so excited about this post. It’s been a long time comin’. I get asked all the time — HOW DO YOU DO IT ALL?! How do you get so much done?! What are your secrets?! When I told you that I have someone folding my laundry I think I broke the internet haha there were so many of you who wanted to know more. Truth is guys, I don’t do it all by myself. I just don’t! I don’t think one person can! I obviously do a lot and I wear many hats but Brian’s job is incredibly flexible and I have a lot of help with the house. So don’t ever feel bad about your situation or feel like you’re not doing enough because I can promise you — you are. You’re enough just the way you are!
I definitely move at a fast pace, that’s just my personality. I love working hard and getting things done but that’s also my Achilles heel because it’s really hard for me to slow down and enjoy the moment sometimes. But we’re all working through our crap, everybody has it haha but over the years I’ve learned a lot about productivity and I’ve just figured out what works for me in terms of managing and staying on top of my family, house hold responsibilities and work. And I might break this up into a few different posts but let’s just start with my top 6 tips on being productive, and these are in no particular order.
Hey babes!!! Happy August! I feel like it’s been ages since I’ve had time to update you on anything but the 30/30 hair challenge. Can you believe it’s already over? It was so amazing getting to know you guys better, I feel like we have this intimate little sisterhood happening now and I love it so much! I’ve missed having time to write on the good ole’ blog, though. There’s something so freeing about putting my fingers to the keyboard and just letting my thoughts take over.
A couple weeks ago we spent the entire day and cleaned up our yard… I mean, you should have seen some of the weeds. Almost the size of my twins! It was as glamorous as it sounds and I snapped a few pictures of the kids as they worked. I honestly love these pictures so much!
I’m reminded of a quote I often see on Pinterest that says, “Enjoy the little things in life for one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things”. As I’m coming out of the baby stage with the twins and my big kids are growing up, going to school, learning to read and just being so much more independent, it’s starting to hit me more and more that this time I have with my kids is slipping through my fingers. I’m trying to take little snapshots of sweet moments in my head and hoping to remember the sound of my boys’ little squeaky voices because I know that time will eventually rob me of them.
