Happy 6 Month Birthday, Avery Grace!!

There once was a girl who was very alone.

She met a boy, they fell in love, and got married.

The girl found out she was going to have a baby.

She was very scared.

The girl didn't know what it would be like to be a mommy.

She didn't think she would make a very good mommy.

As the baby grew, the girl started getting very excited.

Until it was time for the baby to come.

Her name was Avery Grace.

The girl didn't know what unconditional love meant until that day.

Avery grew, every day. She learned how to do new things.

She learned to sit up by herself.

She learned to pick things up with her hands.

She learned how to smile and laugh.

She learned how to try new foods.

She learned how to play.

Now, Avery is 6 months old.

Her mommy could not even imagine her life without her.

Her mommy thinks time is going by too fast.

Her mommy loves her so much more every day...

and shows her off to her friends...

and loves and hugs and kisses her as much as she can.

Avery is the most wonderful blessing in her mommy's life.

And her mommy is happy.

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 

 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
