BUT when I feel the Lord stirring I can’t help but put the to do list down for at least one nap time and pull out my laptop to chat with all of you. As I’m typing I’ve got about four Christmas candles burning with all of our indoor Christmas lights on (even if it is the middle of the day). I have almost all of our gifts already wrapped and under the tree. Christmas music is playing as my laptop rests on my ever growing belly and the baby monitor of my peacefully sleeping toddler quietly buzzes in front of me. Miles and I are about to celebrate our seventh married Christmas together. This will be Anniston’s second Christmas and we will have a sweet newborn joining us in time for her first Christmas this year as well! You could say life is pretty good. And let’s be honest, you’d be right. We have so much to be thankful for this holiday season and I hope that I never let the small, petty things steal away from my grateful heart.Read More
You guys, I am officially 34 Weeks… that’s 8.5 months… PREGNANT. What?? When did that happen? For those new to the whole pregnancy countdown thing, a normal pregnancy is considered 40 weeks. Babies are considered most safe after 37 weeks so we are basically in the 3-6 week countdown range! (I mean, it will most likely be 6 weeks, but a girl can hope for only 3, right?!)Read More
If you follow me on social media then you know how much I have been LOVING True40 Fitness Studio! True40 is a low impact workout, but it gets your heart pumping during warmup and your body shaking during all of the strength training and muscle toning! I especially love how all of the instructors constantly remind you throughout class that this is “your workout”. I tend to like to push myself in my workout so I usually take all of the “challenges” they offer and see if I can drive myself until my absolute breaking point. BUT, with being pregnant, I LOVE that there are plenty of modifications and opportunities to take it a little easier if I’m getting to out of breath!Read More
The Lord has been trying to teach me something lately. Something I know. Something I have learned before. Something I consistently need to be reminded. It’s about holding on.
I believe we should hold our loved ones closely. We don’t know what tomorrow may bring. We don’t know when that “time” will be the “last time”. We shouldn’t take small moments, mundane moments, exhausting moments for granted. We should cherish and hold on tight.Read More
My girl is 20 months old! We are well on our way to TWO and I cannot even believe it! She is in the most fun stage and keeping us on our toes. She’s a little parrot with all her chattering and trying out new things everyday! She has changed so much since her 15 month update (here) so I had to share all of her sweetness (and sass!) with you!Read More
