{my guys,ice cream and a 3 story bookstore}




our littlest guy joined our family a little over six months ago and I must admit I'm still adjusting to having 3 kids. it can get a little crazy balances 3 different schedules for 3 completely different kids, especially when you have an 11 year old who is very active in school, sports and boy scouts.
 
I do my best to spend special moments with each of my little ones individually. I want them to always feel loved and always know that I love spending time with each and every one of them. this weekend, the husband and I took the boys out. it was our first time just hanging out with the boys.  we walked around the Americana, eat some ice cream, and hung out at Barnes and Noble. yes, we are a bunch of book worms and I thought it was time to inaugurate our littlest guy into the massive world of books...I mean it doesn't get any better than ice cream and a 3 story book store on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

{five minute friday::paint}



I know it's been awhile, but this week I'm linking up with Lisa Jo for 5 minute Friday.
 
This weeks word:: paint
 
As I mentioned yesterday, my mind has been a whirlwind of thoughts, ideas and emotions. These past few months have been wrought with lots of change and with change came loads of emotions. Some days it feels like God has been stretching me in every direction all at once, making it so that the only way I can make it through the day is if I look to Him and Him alone.
 
These tornados of change have really skewed my view of the blogging the world and my place in it. I think that sometimes as bloggers, we get stuck the picture perfect computer reality. We forget that life is messy, broken and even trying at times. We aim to paint that perfect picture that displays how we've got it all together even though our true reality is screaming something entirely different. I feel we need to break the mold of the picture perfect computer reality and paint the true picture of computer reality. Let's paint with all the colors in our palette, not the just the pretty jewel tones and pastels. Let's paint with the dark blues, the chocolate browns and the forest greens because there is beauty in brokenness and restoration in truth.

my mind has been a crazy whirlwind as of late. I feel like my brain is just constant tornado of ideas and feelings that I just wish I could shut off for a bit. it doesn't help that this is my busiest time of the year. I've been up till 4am practically every night working. I'm looking forward to the end of this month when things will finally calm down some. till then, I'm doing my best to stick it through by God's grace.
 
how has life been treating you?

{hello monday::back to basics}



 
life these days feels like a never ending chaos. some days I feel like I barely make it through the day by the skin of teeth. by the end of the day I sit on the sofa exhausted and not able to move, not because I ran 5 miles, but because emotional toll of the days has left exhausted. can I tell you something, I hate that feeling. I hate ending the day feeling like I barely made it through. I detest looking at my planner at the end of the day and seeing blank check boxes out number the checked. I loathe writing the same thing on my to-do list 4 times in a row because I never seem to have time to get it done. i want to make more out of my days. so going back to the basics.
 
so hello Monday, hello to a new week. hello to new possibilities and new chances. hello to striping everything way and getting back to the basics. hello to the simple and right now moments. hello to a new day and a new month. hello to a new day, a new week, with no mistakes in it. hello Monday.
