It’s insane how time flies! I am now a mother of 2, and I turned 27 last week. It’s weird how it doesn’t feel all that different. I mean, I guess I’m closer to 30, but 27 seems so…boring compared to other milestones. In the few moments of quiet that I have today, I’m reflecting on the many amazing events and discoveries that occurred in my 26th year…
|Our little sweetheart!!|
Joel began day care and I a new career in real estate, which was rewarding in many ways. I am a very type-A, driven person, so the fast-paced world of real estate excited me. However, after having Eva, I then decided that being home with my babies was where my heart truly lives. Real estate is an amazing field and had I more time that I was willing to devote to it, I think it could have been a fantastic career for me. However, I decided that I couldn’t “wear all the hats” that I wanted while I was in that field. I see so many people who can do it well, but that is not me (more of this in a later post). So, in being home with our kiddos, I am figuring out (not-so-gracefully) how to care for two babies and balancing life and finding new meaning in the every day. I also do not want to lose my identity and my drive to accomplish things (outside of the home and children), so I am hoping to find some sort of balance of working very, very part-time, which brings me to my next discovery.
I am blown away from how truly and deeply I am loved by God. I know that I am far from perfect, and I need to remember that, especially for the days that I’m not so proud of – extra screen time, chicken nuggets, and not-so-much-reading-time sort of days.
I rarely can finish sentences, coffee, or a complete thought these days, but stay tuned for some more posts from my not-so-perfect life. I’ve truly missed blogging and hope to make it more a part of my routine. Even if people do not want to read about me, at least I’ll have something go back and read about, right??
Today I am just excited. Looking forward to the future, looking forward to some changes, and waiting to see what God has planned. Right now, I am learning to be grateful.
|I love soaking up moments like this|
As I write this, I have plans in the works of re-vamping my blog. Stay tuned for that as well as some more “meaty” posts, I promise. 🙂
Make it a great day!
