I started writing a "status update" on Facebook and realized that I was actually writing a blog post. So I switched avenues and here I am. I needed to write a catch up badly anyways!
So, these past few months have gone by SO fast! I feel like I have a better handle on May than I did April, but it still just seems like the days get shorter and shorter. This weekend, I did an expo at the Battlefield Mall for Rodan+Fields, my new side business, and had so much fun. It was nice to get that "me" time that I had forgotten all about. I saw many old friends that I hadn't seen for a long time and it was just fun to catch up and be around other adults. (Such a mom thing to say).
Sunday was such an amazing Mother's Day. We went to brunch with my mom and family, went to the park for a while, and then came back home to put up my new porch swing that Ruby got me! I LOVE it! I have wanted to get one since we moved in and it just had never happened. We have been spending the past few weeks getting the flowers beds planted and garden done. So, it was the perfect time to put up a swing so we could enjoy our hard work! We even busted out the sprinkler and Ruby played in the water for a while, which she LOVED.
I think back to when I was on the fence of whether or not I really even wanted to have kids and I am so glad that I made the choice that I did. Yes, there are days that I would like to just have 5 minutes to sit and do nothing, but I also remember so many minutes of time wasted by sitting and doing nothing from before I had Ruby! I know that what I am doing is working to mold and shape something that has more meaning and purpose than I will ever know. Sometimes that is scary to think of, but I am just glad that God decided to give me the opportunity to do it anyways. When I was in my early 20's I would have thought that my life now was boring and dumb lol. SO glad that I have grown up and realize what the important things are. There has been rough times for sure but it was all worth the struggle and the growing. I love my sweet little life :)
