Reads & Things Sunday #11

This afternoon my feet are up, my thighs are tanned and my shoulders are sun burned! Guess what? I wouldn’t trade this feeling for the world. Here’s how I think of parenting (especially when you’re an intentional, all-in kind of parent). It’s an insane roller coaster and a huge part of the job is just…

Every new week that passes in my life as a parent brings new challenges and more reasons to be grateful. Although I was a solo parent this week while my husband was off at a military conference, I found that this week wasn’t too stressful or difficult at all. One thing that made parenting easier:…

We have finally found a rhythm and a routine! For all of my type-A parents out there, you totally get me when I say this is a big deal. It’s super hard to live life without some type of flow, am I right? Things are consistent for now and I have noticed a huge shift…

Today I feel incredibly grateful. I’m happy about that because I can’t say I have felt that way all week. Like I mentioned in my post last week, we have been dealing with tantrums and toddlerhood (coupled with separation anxiety with AJ going off to childcare and sleeping in her own room again). It’s been rough…

It is the weekend again which always gives me a chance to take a breath, relax and observe what makes me most happy in my life and in my parenting journey. I talked last week about how we finally made it to South Carolina, and it has been so fun living in our home and…

I can’t believe I get to write this Reads & Things Sunday post (only 5 days late but whatever) from our new home in South Carolina! If you remember a couple weeks ago I mentioned that we were hoping to close on a home here – and we did. We still have a lot of…

Sigh. Last week in my Reads & Things Sunday post I talked about how I like to do these on Sunday (or in the beginning of the week at least) because it makes me pause and feel grateful for things in my life. I feel like I was foreshadowing to the future – that I…

Ah, Sunday. Hello friends! There’s a good reason I always write these posts on Sunday. This day is both the beginning and the end of the week. In my opinion, it’s the perfect time to reflect on what I am grateful for over the past 7 days and what I’d like to focus on in…

What is this madness!? Is it really actually Sunday and I’m posting this? Yes, friends it is. That is because the time for busy and stress in my life is slowly coming to a close. We have been going and going and going for so long (read: 8 months). Ever since my dear hubby and…

Soo today is actually Tuesday, and I’ve already missed a couple weeks of Reads and Things Sunday. Guess what? That’s okay with me. Well, actually, if I’m being honest with myself it totally is not okay. However, I’m learning to accept progress over perfection – to be okay with the “irregular” and to embrace the fact…
