This blog has been on a pretty big break recently and I can’t say that I’m mad about it. It is exactly what I’ve been needing and has allowed me to get through a few things going on in our crazy busy lives recently.
In a nutshell, we travelled for about a month, sent Shey’s (my husband) parents off to be mission presidents in Mexico, celebrated my baby sister’s wedding, bought our first home in a small town in Texas, lost another pregnancy + found out some hard news that I’m not ready to talk about yet, started potty training, made homemade limeade everyday, and have had so many angels help us in so many different ways.
So I hope you’ll stick with me as I try to get back into the groove of writing again. The passed few years I’ve been writing about everything motherhood. I still will write about that since it’s a huge part of me and my little boy is my whole world, but that topic stings just a little bit right now. The passed few months I’ve had this nagging feeling to open up a little bit more about my family and the life we choose to live. It’s nothing extreme or out of the ordinary. It’s actually a pretty simple life. We find the biggest joys out of the smallest things and we choose to live a way that makes us happy.
If you’re new here, welcome! You will find that this blog is pretty raw, and as you get to know me I would love to get to know YOU. If you’ve been here awhile, I hope you like the new transition and would love to hear your feedback!
I won’t lie, the time I miss home the most is the 4th of July. There’s something about Utah during that time that is so magical. (plus… the 24th is like round 2! Can’t beat it!) But this year ended up being so much fun. The day of the 4th a big Texas storm came rollin’ in, so we had a “re-do” with the parade and more fireworks on the 9th! Shey’s brother stayed with us one of the nights and we’ve been swimming our lives away! The city’s fireworks happen to be at a perfect view from our porch so it was the perfect ending to the best week!
Here was our 4th in squares:
I hope you all had the best 4th of July!
