We're only human, I get it, balance is tough. Some people are naturals at it, but some, like myself are not. Its taken me over 6 months to get the hang of being of mom, attempting homemade meals each day, keeping food from rotting in the fridge, keeping our house some what clean and trying to have some fun. Its no easy task. A lot of days it has me stumped. 

On those days I just (try to) remind myself - I am only human, as long as we all eat today, that's all that matters. :)
Especially in today's time there is so much pressure to DO, DO, DO. Do crafts, make homemade meals, blog (ha!), be perfect (thanks Pinterest!) Its not fair! You DO what you can and be proud of it. 

I love that today I got to have a hot unrushed shower, put some laundry on and made myself a smoothie! Yay! Thats it for the day! Everything else is bonus.
Molly just woke up from her nap, so now I move onto her schedule and her plan for the day. I.Love.It. 

Moral of today's post - do what makes YOU happy and don't feel pressured to do what everyone else is doing (unless it makes you happy! Ha!) :) 


Hug someone (just not a stranger, they might call the cops)

New goals, new beginnings

Well as you can see with my last post, waaaaay back in 2011, entitled 'Slow Start', that is exactly what it has been. Without boring people to death on the details of the last few years its been a roller coaster - ending on a high! 
So here I am, back online with a 6 month old baby girl and I'm loving every minute! 
Now that I am getting the hang of this mommy thing I am learning to make time for myself and work on things on my 'to do' list, including my blog! 

Since having my daughter I've had some free time, well not really free, but while limited to my glider chair feeding my babe I can surf the net and check out other mommy's blogs, Pinterest and I'm following some really great people on Twitter that inspire me every day! 

So what is my goal or purpose of this blog you ask?! My goal is to post at least once a week and share information that is near and dear to my heart and my family. I know, I know... there are blogs EVERYWHERE and it seems like everyone has one (at least everyone under the age of 30!) but I am doing this for me, as an outlet for my thoughts and passions.

I do hope in one way or another you enjoy it or that it helps you out in some way. 

Cheers :o)
