a lifestyle blog about motherhood, intention, whimsical moments, and wellness
Messy pool hair, dirt in their toes, hammocks in their tree forts and lawn chairs out. We love you sunshine and long weekends 🙌☀️
We went down to Chris family land last weekend and it was so fun- Aiden caught a frog, we got out the fishing poles, the canoe, rode around- it was a blast!
Recently I was watching a movie with the girls for a movie night and the character in the movie was sketching at this beautiful park…I was like- why have we never done that!
So this week I scooped up Ainsleigh and Apple…. we grabbed some colored pencils and a few supplies at the art store, packed a picnic and headed for a sweet afternoon together! The girls loved it so much and it truly was the easiest idea that made such a sweet impact in all of our hearts.
Recently I was telling a friend that I’ll never know why we lost three babies but I do know it led me to two of my girls. The path to them was hard and I can remember times standing still when the world kept moving and I felt frozen. I know this pain. The unknowns and what ifs and the thoughts. I know what it feels like to talk to a friend and know they can’t relate.
Things that came from that pain. Compassion. Soaking up everyday with new eyes. A changed heart.
The one thing I will always be grateful for through all of the hard roads that we have walked is the way it changed me. I see life through a completely different lens.
Intentional time with their hearts, a weekend of no hw or schedules or hustle.
Every time I look at them and they seem just a little bit older I’m reminded of the beauty in cherishing each memory. Soaking in each day.
