It’s been over a year since I’ve written in here… and looking back at my old posts, I must say that some are really good, but some of them I’m kind of embarrassed about.
I used to use this thing like an online diary. I’ve realized alot over the past year and number one is I need to THINK before I type, or hit the publish/send/comment button.
I have a daughter now… a beautiful six week old baby girl. Someday, she may just see these posts. I only hope that she can take something from them.. one of those things being pride in her momma.
There’s been a lot going on in this crazy thing we call life. I LOVE being a mom, but it doesn’t come without it’s stresses. The hardest part is learning balance. There is no such thing as a schedule anymore, and not enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished you want to. I’ve found it hard to allow myself the few beautiful moments to just sit and hold my baby and take in all of her. Looking at her sweet little face gives me a sense of accomplishment I never knew possible. She is everything a momma could dream of and more! I think I am just now learning the hard lesson that, it’s OK if everything doesn’t get done. The important thing is taking time with her, to just enjoy her. She’s growing so fast and I know one day instead of being able to hold her, I’ll be chasing after her! But, I can’t wait for each little milestone. Being a mom is so amazing.
I never thought being a wife was a tough job, but now that I’m a mom I’m realizing it is. To try to look not like a hot mess when you’ve been running around like a madwoman- to just trying to get the laundry done. To still being the one he longs for- and not like another mother to him. To get even 5 minutes to sit down and talk to each other. To do the things that are important in any relationship- communicate, validate, and make time.
I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to sit down and write… and I’m not even sure what I’m going to write about. I’ll probably continue to keep it simple and just about everyday life. I still consider doing a food blog eventually. Our goal is to eventually have a mini farm… so I’m sure I’ll talk a lot about upcoming plans for the future, however far off they might be! Stay tuned! 🙂
