While I am making mistakes, I am not a mistake -Annie F Downs. I make mistakes every day but God still loves me. I yelled at my littles today instead of taking a breath and conveying my frustrations calmly but they still love me and I apologized and they apologized for not listening. Everyone makes mistakes but that's why God's grace is so amazing! Give grace always because it's been given to you.
Yesterday, we went to Busch Gardens and had so much fun but y'all I was so sad when I looked at the people around us. Everyone had crazy eyes like how do I get ahead. They just didn't look like they were having fun. Dax and I were looking and touching flowers. We were honestly walking at a snails pace but we were able to take in all the beautiful things at the park. His favorite was the water fall in the tiger area. I guess what I'm getting at is please slow down and notice all that is around you. Because it is so good and I don't want you to miss it. Look at the world as if you were a child. It's so fun. And maybe even think of someone else before you think about yourself...
I'm going to make everything around me beautiful - that will be my life. -Elsie Dr Wolfe. I honestly love what I do because I enjoy finding beauty in everything. They way they hold hands. They way my sweet littles laugh and make a huge mess with their splashing at bath time. They way he looks at her like she's the best thing that has ever happened to him. Makes me smile just thinking about it. 💕
Yesterday Silas didn't nap when Dax did so we actually had some one on one time and it was amazing! We played a board game over and over and over and over 🤣 but he loved it so I didn't mind. It was perfect because it reminded me of how thoughtful + considerate he really is. We tend to butt heads a lot because he can be pretty strong-willed. He loves to work like mommy and is always trying to help me. Thankful for the time together to remind me of how blessed I am to be his momma and how much he really just needs more time with me without baby brother being around demanding for my attention.
Don't judge but the food is probably in my top 5 for favorite parts of a wedding. Along with the first time dad gets to see his little girl, all the details, the first dance and the when the beautiful bride comes down the aisle. What's in your top 5 for favorite moments or parts of a wedding?
Ten months ago I prayed for a big change! I prayed for ANYTHING. I prayed that God would use my life however He wanted. Guess what... God dropped a shampoo bottle in my lap. This was the girl who had never done MLM before and had only heard negative things and honestly wanted no part of it. So how did I end up here? You can only resist a life changing opportunity from God for so long - about 1 week for me lol. It would allow me to meet some of the most genuine women I've ever met, who truly value community over competition + give their hearts fully to Jesus every day. It doesn’t mean this journey has been easy. Even when I got the courage to click “join now” I had haters and doubters. There have been tough months where I’ve almost thrown in the towel. But with a daily commitment, consistently showing up, being brave and increasing confidence, it's changed everything for me. It’s made me a better me for my family, my clients and my friends. And besides if it's where God has called me I'm going ALL IN!
If I get married I want to be very married. - Audrey Hepburn. Happy anniversary to this sweet couple who is definitely very married! 😍 I love following along and watching y'all do life together and we will always love the memories that were made on your wedding day! Xoxo
2018 was just so good but I know God isn't done yet! Last year was just the beginning. You see last year I realized I was only giving God part of my heart. The part that wouldn't get hurt. I wasn't giving Him total control of my life. Yes, last year was hard but I grew so much! I grew as a friend, a mom, a wife and as a follower of Christ. And I know that all of that growth was just the tip of the iceberg. Are you ready to let go and let God? I promise it's not as scary as it seems to let go of the control that you're really not controlling anyway 😘
