Wherever you are, keep going.

At 27 years of age, I feel like I’ve learned a lot.

One of the most important things I’ve learned is I cannot do anything on my own. I am weak. I am broken. I am only human, living in the flesh.

God meets me right where I am, and my friends, I pray He meets you wherever you are, as well. There is nothing too big for Him to handle, give Him your burdens and He will help make your load light.

I didn’t get to this place overnight. It’s taken years.

Sitting down with Harney & Sons

One of my favorite parts of blogging has been the new experiences!

I recently was chosen as Harney & Sons January Teafluencer and I got to answer interview questions and share my heart with you guys! If you missed it on their site, you can read it HERE, but I’ll also share it below.

Thanks for sticking around and giving me so so many reasons to keep at this. Thank you for the encouragment and love, and for joining me in this motherhood (and beyond) journey.

Looking back but leaping forward

I feel like I blinked and 2018 was over, yet at the same time, I feel like it took forever.

2018 was…a mixture of so many emotions.

2018 taught me so much about joy, patience, heartbreak, grief, happiness and gratefulness.

Christmas through a toddlers’ eyes

As a child, I remember fun Christmas mornings with mom and dad and my brother. As an adult, Christmas was…let’s face it, I was bahumbug about it. Then when I had kids, the magic came back seeing the twinkle in my son’s eyes. Then my baby turned into a toddler…which brings us to this post.

The twinkle in his eyes was still here this Christmas season, but then so was something else. Selfishness. Or greed? Maybe I don’t even know.

Let’s be real

When I started out on this mom-blog adventure, I told myself that I needed to remain real with you guys.

Sometimes I succeed, other times I find myself trying to write what I think y’all will like or what I think will get the most hits.

Why would I do that to myself?

This world of social influence is tricky, but the short answer to that is…I have no clue.

Embracing my strong-willed child

We’ve hit tough terrain over here.

I’m not talking about terrible-twos, because we’ve been in that for 10 months and…well, it isn’t pleasant, but we’ve learned how to deal with that.

This post is about a few different things.

It’s about how we are embracing the strong-willed side of our child, and how we are embracing our child.

I would walk on legos for you

11 months of living apart from my husband was never something we planned. It’s never something we thought we’d be doing, and it definitely has not been easy.

It’s taught me how important my spouse is, and how easy it is for us to take someone for granted. It’s taught me the value of time, because two out of seven days a week is not much time to spend with someone.

It’s taught me about sacrifice.
