Today is my one-year anniversary at work, and my goodness what a year it has been.  The week I started, Ellie got a horrible cold/eye infection, and the next week Eli got sick. Go figure! Along with the job and schedule, Eli started kindergarten, which was a huge, huge change for our family.

Our life looks so much different today than it did this time last year.  Our house is messier, our laundry piles are higher, and our dinners are faster than ever.  But I wouldn’t change a thing.

I’ve not entirely mastered my daily routine, but I am getting closer and closer every day.  And the idea of having it all together is a tragic myth anyway.  What I have mastered, is accepting the blessing that has come to our family.

We are able to better provide for our children and prepare for our future as a family and as a couple.  I say all the time that I have the best of all worlds.  I get to put my family first every single day.  I get to be there in the morning and experience the chaos that comes with getting two little people out the door.  I get to use my marketing and reporting skills in a new and positive way, and I get to invest in our community everyday my serving the children in Warren County.

Not to mention that the people I work with are AWESOME!!

Not a day goes by that I don’t thank the Lord for this opportunity for me and my family!  Happy one year to me!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
