No Phone November.

Friends. I have to be honest with you about something.

I’m addicted to my phone.

Like, for real.

I know most of our generation is also addicted, and it’s a millennial thing, yadda yadda yadda. But I’m sick of it. I’m sick of NEEDING my screen. I’m sick of it being the first thing I look at when I wake up, and the last thing I look at before I go to sleep.

Learning How to Wife // Cleaning

Last weekend, Stuart and I went to Family Life‘s marriage conference, “A Weekend to Remember.” A few couples from our church all decided to go together, and it was really fun. Stuart and I attended our first “Weekend to Remember” 6 months into our marriage, so this experience was a lot different. Back then, we were figuring out all the “newness” of marriage and living life together, such as communication, daily forgiveness and grace, how best to love each other and what true intimacy means.

On 2016, Mom Life and Turning 30.

Mom Life

You guys, life is just funny. I’ve recently realized that when I think I have it all figured out, I really don’t. “Mom life” is like trying to juggle 52 balls in the air, and realizing you can only handle 1 at a time. In reality, for me, that means just as I’m getting the hang of the mom thing, the rest of it just becomes really tough…being a good wife, a healthy cook/eater, keeping our home clean, trying to get the baby weight off [yes, it’s still there, a year later…] and trying to spend time doing things I enjoy like reading and blogging and showering.

Currently Volume Two

So, you may (or may not) have noticed I haven’t been blogging lately. Life has been traveling at a million miles a minute, and I’ve been doing everything I can to just breathe and take it all in. I feel like it was April just yesterday, and now it’s JUNE!! 

I’ve honestly really missed blogging. I keep blog topics in a note on my phone, and I’m really excited about a lot of them, (still to come: how to survive flying solo with a baby) I just have no time to actually sitting down and write.

I used to wonder how to find other blogs to follow that I would really enjoy, and have realized link-ups are definitely a great way to find awesome blogs! This link-up is basically about what’s currently going on in life, anything that’s on your mind…almost as if we’re on a coffee date chatting about life!

My Grand Life.

Life is good.

Livin’ La Vida Loca.

YOLO.

Don’t worry, be happy.

Life.

I have a ton of things to be thankful for in my life. I have an amazing husband, the most adorable puppy and awesome friends and family. I believe God blessed me with a wonderful life so that I can do my best to glorify Him with what I’ve been given.
