Swipe over to see what this beauty looked like before we attacked it with @fusionmineralpaint. This has got to be my most favorite piece of furniture in our house. I definitely spotted it on the side of the road waiting for the garbage man. It gives me so much joy to think I saved it from the landfill and gave it a whole new life. Now its job is to stash all my son's puzzles and books out of sight.
There's not enough time in the day. Every night by the time I land in bed, I'm drained. Absolutely exhausted. & when I reflect on what I did all day, it never feels like I got enough done. I didn't organize this or I didn't prepare that. So because I don't have something tangible to show for my exhaustion, I feel like I've done nothing when the truth is, every day that I keep both me and my smallest human alive is a huge feat and I need to stop and give myself the kudos I know I deserve. There will never be enough time in the day. Ever. And that's OK. #ad #@woodwatches_com
This whole 8/9 week growth spurt/wonder week has been hard. Like, really hard! The whole household is feeling it. But I'm trying to focus on the small wins. Today's small win was when Oliver said I love you, Ellie! completely unprompted! It was a precious moment to over hear between two brothers. It's the little moments like those that get you through the trying times. The small wins are really the big wins. Isn't this pic of Reid and Ellie everything!? 🙌 My heart can't take it. 📷: @morganwebbphotography
Last spring I did grey and white marble Easter eggs! This year I have something really pretty planned. Any guesses?!? I'm so excited to get cracking...🥚
Pure joy. That's what I see when I look at this photo. That's what I see when I look at my face in the mirror. But I haven't always been able to see joy or even feel it. In fact, it wasn't so much that I wasn't feeling joy but rather I wasn't feeling anything. To be where I am and experiencing actual feelings and raw true emotions is a real gift. 📷:@morganwebbphotography
Whether it's snowing or not, I'm gonna just go ahead and start decorating for spring, alright? Don't you just love the shades of @fusionmineralpaint I used!? You'll never guess what I used to make this rose stamp! Hop over to the blog and see. Links in the profile.
OK, so this may look serene and calm but this is just one second out of the day. There is certainly chaos in our house and you know what? I'm so OK with it because it is all momentary and so fleeting. This mantra card was in the @ohmothercarekits Spring Kit and I think it's just the best reminder for the season of life I am in right now.

I can't even handle these two! I keep hearing Oliver say things to Elliot that he's heard me say like, I know, it's tough!! and it's OK Ellie boy! There are moments where it feels like they both crying for me and I have to let one of them down. It's tough! But most of the time I can't remember when there weren't two little kids in my arms. 📷: @morganwebbphotography
It's been one of those days where I just need to chill out and have some me time without anyone touching me, y'know? I'm just going to curl up on the couch, read my magazine and sip on some tea and chocolate courtesy of @ohmothercarekits! Use to code zoid10 to get 10% off on your first kit.
