Ya’ll, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve blogged or at least published a post. I have a few things that I will back date to keep them in order, but long story short, I’ve been preoccupied.
Good gracious, it was a fast two months. One thing this summer has taught me is how to be present in the moment. I sometimes have a tendency to think along the lines of “when I get things together then….” the truth is that we will never have it all together. I’m slowly but surely learning how to let it all go. It’s so beautiful to truly enjoy each moment for what it is instead of trying to make it better. In a lot of ways I am coming to terms with my weight issues, and I’m allowing myself to accept my limitations.
We have developed some rally good habits this summer. I make all the beds before we leave the house every day and the kitchen/toys are picked up every night before bed. Eli is taking on more responsibility around the house, and I do a load of laundry every day. All of these changes have prevented the housework from piling up, which means more time together as a family.
