Sunday Moment

Thank You #fmsphotoaday I'm thankful for date night with my husband and time alone together.

Last week, my Mother fell and broke her hip. I've spent a lot of time at the hospital with her since her fall. I called in some emergency daycare and when I went to pick up the kids on Friday, the daycare owner had the nicest things to say to me. She was impressed that I had left the kids with her so I could be with my Mom at the hospital and told me that good karma would be coming back to me. I wanted to tell her that I wasn't doing anything special. I was just being there when someone needed me more.

I was reminded that sometimes we need to water others, to water ourselves. Though honestly I feel like I've been watering so many others lately that I'm becoming parched. I find myself asking myself, "How do you keep yourself watered when so many others need to be watered by you?" I'm still searching for the best balance but one way I keep myself watered is through exercise. I went to an amazing yoga class last week which helped soothe my exhaustion and plan to hit up a spin class later today. I'm still a barre3 addict too. Exercise waters my soul.

Daily Photo(s)

Still Life #fmsphotoaday

I take so many photos and I love having them as documentation of our lives. This year I've been following the FatMumSlim prompts along with collecting daily photos of the girls with the Collect App. I love that every evening Collect reminds me to collect my best photo from the day. At the end of the month, I made a collage of my daily photos to remind me of what we did, what we liked, what we enjoyed.


I love looking back and smiling over our adventures. I love remembering what we did. 


I love seeing old photos that I've taken and falling in love again. I love seeing the magic come alive.

Three dads don 'empathy bellies' to experience pregnancy I love this! I remember how hard it was to get comfortable at night and how much Scott hated my pregnancy pillow. I told him he could take it over my dead body before hissing at him.
