{life lately::volume 15:: day by day}

These past few weeks have been filled with tears, aguish, laughter, worry, dread, heartbreak, disappointment, and more tears. My life has been altered. Life long dreams have buried. Old friendships have been renewed. Mortality has slapped us in the face. And though there have been many times when I just wanted to throw my hands up in the air and yell "I'm Done!" God would not let me go. When I fought HIm, He only fought hard to wrap His arms of love around me. And on the days when it felt like I had a rain cloud over my head would never cease, He called to remembrance this verse...  
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus...Philippians 1:6

{Things I'm looking forward to::July 2015 edition}

 I look forward to the start of a new month...a new month to me means, a fresh start, a clean slate...especially July ...and not just because it's my birthday month (my birthday is tomorrow)...but because it marks the half point of the year. 
July is the best time to reflect on the past six months. It's a great to readjust or if need be, to get back on track. When July rolls around I like to I where I want to be...have stuck to my resolutions? I wish I could say I'm right where I want to be, but sometimes life gets in the way of plans and so I'm taking this month to reboot, recharge and renew.
July goals
*exercise 3 to 4 times a week
*use my day planner daily
*write 2 to 3 times a week
*finish 3 sewing projects
What I'm looking forward to...
*my birthday (tomorrow)
*hitting the beach
*crafting with the kids
*finishing my bedroom redo
*making a gallery wall in my living room
What are you looking forward to this month?

{life lately::volume 14:: the little things}

The older you get, the more you realize that it isn't about the material things, or pride or ego. It's about our hearts and who they beat for.

{life lately::volume 13::enjoying the little things}

life can be fun. life can be exciting. life can be adventurous. and life can be exhausting. sometimes, so exhausting that the only thing you can do is cling to God and search out and enjoy those pockets of joy and happiness.
I spy a little ballerina in a blue tutu taking her last ballet in search of her next adventure. 

I spy little brother proudly watching his big sister dance in ballet class.
study buddy dates are always fun.
he's been making me laugh since September 2013.
rose petals from my little prince.
she only has eyes for daddy.
snuggles with my sweet sleepy princess.

just three words: spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti!

{Reliving pieces of my childhood}

One of my favorite things about being a mom is sharing pieces of my childhood with my children. This park, known affectionately as the "sea monster park", was one of my all time favorite parks as a kid. If sea monsters sculpted into long, giant slides don't speak fun, I don't know what does.
Yesterday was the first time my two littles joined in on the adventure. Hearing their laughter, seeing my princess so overjoyed at climbing the "mountain" to go down the slide and seeing my biggest revel in his big brother status warmed my heart like none other.

{life lately::volume 12::it's been a long time}

it's been a long time....
I've missed you...
I've missed writing...
I've missed this...
Life got hard.
Very hard.
Each day was a new obstacle and my only comfort was found in the arms of Jesus and his mercies that are new every morning.
He wiped the tears from eyes and filled me with hope and strength to go on.
What a hope I found in Jesus.
