Reason

Reason

As I put bubs down for bed this afternoon I could feel him completely relax with my arms tightly around him. He has been sick and has just needed a little extra love and attention. Do you remember that feeling when you were a kid? When I was sick all I wanted was at least [...]

Passions

Passions

I will be sharing clothing on here as a passion of mine. I will be sharing about Christ as the greatest love of mine. I will be sharing about motherhood as it is my world right now. I will be sharing about marriage, travel, and how-to's. I love my husband. We love to travel when [...]

Nothings

Nothings

Have you ever truly noticed how kids are so enthralled with something that seems like absolutely nothing? I love to see how amazed my son is by everyday things I forget to notice. His eyes absolutely light up as if to say, "WOW, did you see that one blade of grass Mom?! It moved a [...]

Prepared

Prepared

You can't be prepared for what you will have to do as a mother. I promise you. You will feel prepared before your first child. You will have diapers, the carseat, the cute outfits, burp cloths, pacifiers, and the list goes on, but you aren't prepared. Take my word for it. I had been a [...]

If you search 'photos in Paris', 'family photos in Paris', or anything related to photos in Paris you are inundated with beautiful photos of women in dresses. Yes, there are those few that [...]

Socks

Socks

My mom gave me a piece of advice that an older woman gave her before she got married many years ago. It stuck with her and it has always stuck with me. It was basically something like, "don't get mad about having to pick up your husbands socks (or whatever item) because some other woman [...]

Rest

Rest

I know a lot of moms tend to feel guilty about their parenting-for lack of a better word. Am I spending enough time with my children? Am I teaching the right things? Was I too lenient? Was I too harsh? Why does my child do that or act that way? How can I get him/her [...]
