Santa! I know him!

December 12, 2016

Ok Monday, LET’S DO THIS. (Sometimes you have to pump yourself up and up and up on a Monday morning, am I right?) Good morning, all! Honestly, this morning snuck up on me. As I got into bed last night (at 9pm, for real) and realized I didn’t have a Grateful Heart post written for today yet, I could have gotten out of bed and thrown something together quickly. But I chose sleep 🙂 Anyone else’s next few weeks crazy…

Staying grateful while in the hustle

December 5, 2016

Monday! And we’re at it again! What does your week look like? The closer it gets to Christmas, the bigger our to-do list seems to get which makes taking pause to give THANKS with a grateful heart all the more important to me. So that’s what I’m doing today, in typical blogger form – with a list 😉 Friends! We had our good friends Molly & Sam over last night for a second year of celebrating all things Christmas: yummy…

It’s time.

November 28, 2016

Did today sneak up really fast for anyone else? Whoa! And um, anyone else going through dessert and carb and wine withdrawal? Like, can we just take some naps for a few days or something? Post-thanksgiving is rough! ha! Guys, I’ll tell ya right now – IT’S TIME. Like, bring on all things Christmas over here, let’s do it. I’m talking full ON, let’s get obnoxious. We got our tree yesterday and I’ll start the decorating this week, along with…

The beauty in seasons

November 21, 2016

Happy Monday, all! I’m a bit late with this today – story of my life lately, haha. But, I’ve learned over the last few months that going with the flow of life seems to be less stressful than trying to cram ALLTHETHINGS into schedules and routines that just kind of don’t always fit like they used to. I’m learning that there are a lot of things that can feel like top priorities but to really grow any of them, you…

Currently: 30 Reasons I’m Grateful

November 14, 2016
Currently 705

Anyone else deliriously happy to welcome a brand new week? DUDE. I was in desperate need of a fresh start. And it’s not that we forget, or quiet our voices if we feel led to keep speaking, but it really does feel nice to take a deep breath on this Monday and know that we got through last week… we’re still here… and we can still CHOOSE to be grateful. I’m in, are you? Hey, also, congratulations to Emelia, Rachel,…

Surprises of Motherhood, Vol. 1

November 7, 2016

Hi all! Happy Monday, and happy November! So crazy, I can’t believe how fast time is flying. I have really missed sharing my thoughts in this space; I’ve had plans of sharing parts of our adoption journey for quite awhile now but have instead chosen to spend that time with Crew – easy decision, of course 😉 BUT, now that Crew has started to sleep more (praise!) I’m hoping to use this month (National Adoption Month!) to start pounding out…

Grateful for weekends off

October 24, 2016

Happy Monday! As I write this, it’s Sunday evening – 8pm – and I’m coming off of an amazing weekend spent with my sweet little family. Christian has begun to take weekends off work (first time EVER, like since I’ve ever known him. For real.) and we have SO enjoyed our lazy, worry-free weekends spent together. We have a crazy (but fun) next few weeks planned, including some travel, so the Grateful Heart linkup is now paused and will resume…

For the Record: I’m Soaking It Up.

October 17, 2016

Happy Monday, all! Alright, a bit of a preface before I launch into sharing my thoughts with you: please know that everything I’m sharing in this post today comes from a place of love and lightheartedness 🙂 I realize you all can’t see my face or hear my tone as you read these words so please just know that I did not write this with lips pursed, snapping my fingers while waving them through the air in your face. (You…

Grateful for new smiles

October 10, 2016

Guys? Our sweet Crew has been the smiliest boy the last 3-4 days and it’s melting both Christian and me into straight up PUDDLES. His little personality is starting to show – he coos all the time now and recognizes our faces – and I’m just pretty much OB.SESSED with this bebe. Is there anything better than a brand new smile? As Crew experiences his new smiles, he’s helped me find a new smile of my own. Pure joy, this…

Fall Favorites: My Go-to Fall Wear

October 3, 2016

Guys? I have happily hopped onto the fall bandwagon in blogland… also in real life 😉 The temps have finally dipped (enough) here in TN and it’s made my heart pretty happy to have to throw on a sweatshirt in the mornings. So let me just say it right here and now – today, I am grateful for FALL. While summer might be my favorite season over all, fall is actually my favorite season when it comes to clothes. I…
