Nothing like eating queso on a patio when it's *only* 85 degrees in Texas during June 😲
I read this post from @hbgoodie
the other day and it spoke to my heart:
"There's this big beautiful world out there when you realize that social media is just a means to an end. It can be a great way to connect, share art, and make a living. But it isn't life. Relationships are life. Emotions and moments you share are life. Gathering around a table is life. Spending time with God is life. It makes me sad, because something that was more about sharing art with others has turned into this weird competition of who has the best of everything. So next time you feel the comparison itch or find yourself ignoring the people around you because of this app, step back, write a gratitude list, give someone you love a hug, and remember how good you've got it. Life is beautiful, you just have to keep your eyes open."
I'm so so guilty of ignoring others because of this app and just my phone in general. Especially these two kiddos that I love so much. This time of age has so many more distractions than any other and it's a fine line to find a balance. But I never want my family to question how much I love them or how much they mean to me. Because if this app ended tomorrow, they are the only ones who would still be there and that's what matters most. 💕💕 #sundaythoughts #sharegoodness
IM BACK!! Even though I never left the Instagram world I did take a month long break from blogging to focus on my certification exam. Now that that is finally done and over with I'm excited to FINALLY have the Youngstown Half Marathon race recap up on the blog along with a few other life updates! Link is in profile!
Our neighbors are renovating this summer. There's been a lot of activity to keep my curious trio entertained. But the best was the excavator (or elevator as Mickey Blue calls it) that showed up ON HIS BIRTHDAY!!! #bestbirthdaypresentever
Shout out to all the construction loving boy moms out there! Can I get a YEAH?!?! #boylife #boymom
I'm really loving the woman I'm becoming. Caring less and less about what people think and listening more and more to the Holy Spirit. Getting free of people bondage was HUGE for me. Now more then ever I feel like I'm walking in my purpose. Stay tuned for some things I have in store 🤗🙌🏾 #prettyinpinkblush #shoppinkblush #MomsWhoBlog #Blessed #Purpose
Weekends are the best days cause they're family days. We checked out The Local and got some shave ice yesterday and even went back for seconds. It's just so good with their local made flavors. Leaves you feeling refreshed and not super sugared out. And as you can tell from Riley's face. It's pretty much too good to wait to take a picture of cause you'd just rather devour it😂
What are you having for breakfast tomorrow? This PB + Jelly Oatmeal is a favorite for mama and the kiddos alike! Temp link in profile! 😊🍓😊🥜😊#breakfastofchampions #oatmeal #yum
(2) This afternoon we toured Nova Scotia's south coast. Chris spent the entire day trying to convince me to move to every small town we passed through. And every single time I was like "no thanks". Then we discovered the former fishing village - turned tourist paradise of Lunenburg, with its amazing art galleries, French-inspired shops, and hip restaurants - and I TOTALLY get it. What a gorgeous place to explore! | And fir those of you wondering, I am making a traveler's notebook with entries in REAL TIME and adding photos to the PL App. Next post will include some sneaks! #oureatpraylovevacation2017 #visitnovascotia #explorecanada
Simple little moments like this remind me of so much: that my husband is a hero to him. Sitting on the deck yelling "hi" a thousand times when he walks by with the mower rings squeals of delight when Husband waves back. This little reminder wraps around my heart. Because Deep down he's a hero to me too. The little things he does now will grow in my son's heart who will someday be the same to his own son. And THAT makes my heart overflow. It's the seeds now that need all the nurturing they can get from us.
What a privilege it all is.
Happy Sunday evening folks. I hope you have a restful evening to kick off your week.
Just posted a new weekend vlog on YouTube!! Link ⬆️⬆️ Check us out while we go zip lining in Austin and then head to the beach in corpus 🌞🌊
