Hi friends! Let’s be honest, it’s been a minute since I last posted but I am feeling refreshed and humbled. My goal for this month was to have a post ready for you guys every Monday, however I have been a little out of sorts as to what to write about. Although I love writing about my outfits and how you can style certain pieces, lately I have just felt like there are more important things to write about, like being a new mommy for example. Being a new mom has challenged me in ways I never thought imaginable. Unlike the pictures portray, it’s truthfully hard to get up and get dressed every day, especially when your running on little sleep. I easily catch myself comparing myself to other blogger moms who look great and still seem like they have it all together. I know they truthfully don’t, but hey I’m human. My family has been blessed to have some help around the house and help with baby, but even with that I am sooooooo exhausted, there are days where I just feel so drained. This is the REAL mom life! Getting dressed however does make me feel good and confident, which is why I continue to do it.
Last week I started thinking about my future goals as a blogger and what it was I really wanted to write about. Unsurprisingly, there was a list, and being that I am OCD, I started to over think things and create unnecessary anxiety. There are many things I want to accomplish right away but I know I just need to step back and unplug, which is what I did. Did I mention that I also volunteer my time with the kids ministry as a coordinator at my church? Oh and that I am taking a class online for school? If only their were more time in the day!
I was ready to post something for you guys on Sunday, however something tragic happened that hit close to home for us. As you probably already know, there was a mass shooting at a small church just outside of San Antonio, nearly four hours away. This made me cancel my insignificant post and just pray and think of all the lives that were lost. I needed a few days to just reflect and remember how grateful I am to have my family safe and sound. I know it could happen to anyone one but being that I work in a church setting, it was all too familiar.
So who cares if I don’t get that holiday gift guide out to you guys on time or that I don’t share my latest sale finds. Sometimes there are just more important things in life. Like family for example:)
I hope you enjoy these unedited picture of Everett and I!
