Happy Mother's Day

When I was in my 20s, I knew I wanted to have a family. Yet, I was still hesitant on how much kids would change my life. So, while I knew I wanted kids, I knew I wanted them a certain way. To be married for a while, older, having traveled around for a while. Before I had to settle down.
God stepped in and I realized all my plans for kids had changed, because I had met two wonderful children.
Children that would change my life forever.
Children that I knew I wanted to be with always.
When Jason and I got together, we thought, "Two kids is enough. We can feel content and complete with our two."
God stepped in and I realized all our plans for more kids had changed, because I learned there would be another little one to join our family.
And she came in and I couldn't figure out how we ever thought our lives were complete without her.
And the three we have love each other.
And the three we have make us crazy.
And three we have make us busy.
And the three we have make us happy.
And the three we have make us complete, in God's plan.
And we are thankful for our unfulfilled plans.
And that God knows our hearts and futures better than we do.
And I am so blessed that God knew that I could be a mother.
Happy mother's day!!

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.
