I bought all four of these journals last summer when we started trying for baby number 4. I started by writing down each birth story and now try to write a few sentences or an anecdote in one of them each night. The red one just has one entry from November 21st so far, “YOU’RE ALIVE!” (It was the day I took my first positive pregnancy test ❤️) My late mother was a list maker and a planner and I actually have about 12 years worth of her planners which are fascinating and show the rhythm of her life but she only journaled the last few years of her life when her perspective was tainted by years of unrelenting pain and regret. So my motivation is a little morbid but also hopeful that these journals will be sweet reminders for myself and my children of these special years.

Not my earliest profile pic (which is a picture of the back of my head on a good hair day) so I dug up the oldest tagged picture of me from November 7, 2005. Yes, I’m headbanging with a ribbon tied around my neck at a bar wearing a corset as a shirt?! 😳 awwww youth! Then decided to update my profile picture of me from November 10, 2018 at the @weareladyfarmer Slow Living Retreat 13 years later because it shows the grownup version of happy Whitney. #nofilters on either!
When there’s an impending snow storm, some people run to the store for milk and eggs. First of all, I already have those things 👩🏻🌾 but I ran to store for chicken feed, dog food, cat food, and a heated water bucket 🤣🤣🤣 Excited and nervous about being snowed in - as long as Johns flight gets in safely first - AND stoked because my favorite Young Living starter kit is on sale so I’ll be spending the weekend hooking people up with non-toxic goodies! ❤️🌿💥
Not all of these are possible with littles in tow, but these are my go to ways to reset my day. ❤️🌿☀️🧘🏻♀️🙏🏼What are yours?
Good clean CALM fun. Thank you @younglivingeo For your awesome kidscents line. Current situation: bathing the boys while I watch my recalcitrant two year old on the baby monitor throw an epic tantrum in her room while I wait for the Peace and Calming to kick in that I slathered all over her. I would normally say long timeouts are not appropriate for a two year old but after she resorted to violence against me and her brothers, we all needed some space...and oils. Applying some calming oils to everybody - myself included - and tucking all these munchkins in. 😅🙏🏼 Missing John something fierce right now!
Kids found the tags for two blueberry bushes we planted and decided they would make good headbands. So grateful for sunshine ☀️ and time outdoors! 🙌🏻
TRUTH. 🙌🏻❤️ Working on my book and rediscovered this lovely nugget. You don’t have to homestead or be wealthy to take more care about how you source your food. Can’t wait to share more! Back to writing... Quote from Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by @iambkingsolver
