Sometimes when you’re a parent, even though you know it will be a complete wreck in an hour, you still have to do it. #parenthood #tamingthechaos #ocd #hashtag #hashtag

an actual conversation from last night with some dude that was on a cool guy mission

  • Standing next to the bar naming off musicians from the 60s being played and talking about the "new" ClubMasters he had just ordered at his optometrist because the ones he was wearing were "the cheap version"...
  • Me: your friends' sister looks like Sara Barallis.
  • Him: I don't know who that is.
  • Me: you know, she sings that 'I wanna see you be brave' song?
  • Him: I don't know who that is.
  • Me: ...mhhmm..I know. I know you don't ...
  • Me: you know who you look like?
  • Him: well a lot of people say a mix between (some actor I've never heard of) and David Bekham.
  • Me: oh. I was going to say my husband...3 years ago...

where has a year gone? today our baby is has been a year of so many new discoveries, for her and for me, and I am so proud to be her mama. thank you Lord for giving to us the things that we do not deserve. Sophia Ruth, I love you so so much.

my girl is turning 1 on Sunday and I’m finding myself embracing every final “baby” moment I have left with my first born. she is becoming wildly independent and I am so sad I can’t run around with her like I want to. she is so much more than everything. I have so much love and hope foe this girl. #yourdailysophia #sappymompost

Today my beautiful and incredibly strong grandmother turns 87 years old. There are no simple words to tell you how much I love this woman and to tell you about how much she has inspired me to be a better daughter, a better sister, a harder worker, and a better mom and wife. My grandmother is the cornerstone of my incredibly large family. The confidant. The optimist. The gentle hand. The encourager. The comedian. Tomorrow we will take her off of life support, just as she requested, and she will go and be with her maker, pain free, and at rest. 

Lola I love you so much. I don’t want you to go but I know that I’ve been spoiled to have you for this long. Every day I will think of you. Every day I will wish you were still here.
