Grateful: Traditions

September 27, 2016

Hey everybody! I spent a long weekend in Indiana and spent all day yesterday driving back to Nashville (by myself with a 1 month old who still eats every 2 1/2 hours, and a dog – gah! They were both so good but my gosh was that a long trip!) so the Grateful Heart linkup was postponed a day but I’m here! So sorry for anyone who was planning on linking up your post – feel free to link up…

The Best of Ember Grey

September 19, 2016

Happy Monday, everybody! Did you guys have a good weekend? I continued to spend mine being a mom blob, which has been the best! Crew is starting to smile and make super cute noises which you know just absolutely melts me into a puddle. Speaking of noises though… last week was a bit of a rough one in that Christian was out of town for work and poor Crew has been experiencing colic from 6p-9p every night (oh. my. gosh…

Currently: It can change and still stay the same.

September 12, 2016

Well is it any surprise as to why I’ve taken a bit of a blogging break this past month? 😉 There’s been so much I’ve wanted to share and say in this space these last few weeks but I made the (incredibly easy) decision to put my new job of being a mama before anything else, which basically means that anything requiring two hands (like blogging, cleaning, laundry, blow drying my hair, emailing, dishes, etc.) has been put on the…

An Overflowing Heart. (Thank you)

August 29, 2016

Happy Monday!! Well, for those of you who are waking up this morning and in desperate need of a pot or two of coffee, DUDES. I am right there with you and please SAVE ME A FEW POTS. I have never, ever felt so tired and exhausted – I’m talking like when you’re so tired your entire body hurts – even your hair. I don’t think I really understood the kind of tired new mamas would talk about – like…

We’re All Waiting. (And sometimes the waiting just sucks.)

August 8, 2016

It occurred to me this weekend that I’m not the only one experiencing a really hard chapter of Waiting. It’s not that I didn’t know that people other than me are waiting for their own “thing” – but I must have forgotten because on Saturday morning it hit me like one of those light bulb moments – we’re ALL waiting on something and sometimes that season of waiting can bring some incredibly painful times. Whether it’s waiting for a new…

A Place to Reset

June 6, 2016

I’m getting a late start on this Monday, holy cow, but you know what? Sometimes that’s just the way the day shakes and I’m remembering that we need to extend ourselves a bit of grace. Mondays are hard enough so despite waking up late and having a million things to do today, I’m aiming to tackle it all with a grateful heart. Who’s with me? Do any of you have a place you go to when you just need to…

Bigger. That was my word for 2016, as most of you regular Ember Grey readers already know 😉 I realize that’s not new information but it was the only way I could think of starting this post… my word this year has already had a pretty big impact on me. Some of you may have noticed a slight shift and change in this space for the last few months or so and it’s one of those shifts and changes where I’m not…

Sunshine for the Soul.

February 1, 2016

Happy Monday, all! Did the temps warm up for any of you this weekend?? Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous: sunny, a cool breeze, and 70 degrees. (Hard to believe that only one week ago I was wearing The Quilt and traipsing through feet of snow!) I think just about every window in our house was open over the weekend and the fresh air did miraculous things for my soul. I sat in our family room for 2 hours on Sunday, not…

A Snowy Picture Book Weekend. (A Grateful Heart)

January 25, 2016

Anyone still snowed in? East coasters?? I want to hear all about everyone’s snowy weekend adventures. (West coast readers, we hear you over there with all your “sunshine and clear skies all day everyday let’s go to the beach!” talk. And we’re real happy for you, ok?) My snowy weekend started out with picking up Christian from the airport around midnight – mere hours before the storm hit Nashville. I thought for sure his flight would be cancelled but he…
