Lately...

December 17, 2013

I've been feeling nothing but exhaustion, especially after the last week I just had.

Little miss 1 is at such a lovely age - walking, running, talking lots of gibberish, giggling all the time and playing really well but, at the same time she has also been whiney, clingy and will easily sook at anything (she had a meltdown the other day because her popsicle melted and cried her little lungs out for a good hour - typical girl gene). It's so weird how life can be like that... one moment so sweet and yet the next will frustrate the living heck out of you. 



My sweet husband took Scarlet off my hands for a few hours on the weekend while I sat on the beach and just did nothing. He could tell I really needed it and you know what... it was SO nice not to do anything. I haven't sat there and did absolutely nothing in a long long time and I forgot how refreshing and recuperating it can be! I sat and pondered about all the things that have happened this year and did what I promised myself to do more of - to be thankful of the people and things I have in life and instantly, my heart was lifted. So I wrote this list:

I'm thankful for a wonderful, loving, kind-hearted husband and a beautiful healthy baby girl.

I'm thankful for family and friends who always encourage, inspire and uplift me.

I'm thankful for this time I have at home with Scarlet.

I'm thankful for kicking my own butt to persevere with this blog, and for all the wonderful friends and opportunities that have come from it.

I'm thankful for a faith and love that is greater than anything that this world can give.

  5. I just had the week from hell with my 3 & 1 year old so reading this has made me feel like I'm not alone in the hardships of motherhood. Thanks so much for sharing and reminding me that despite our super hard circumstances, we have so much to be thankful for still xoxo
